Under Eye

Question

Hello Dr. Maureens: My question is regarding to the under eye area. I am 24 years old now, and since 4 years ago I have developed little white dots under my eye area that seems to be under the skin layer. I also have lots of wrinkles under my area (or what they call crow’s feet)and I do not know why I am developing them so early in age. How could I prevent this and what treatments I should use? Thank you.

Answer

Thanks so much for your question. There are a number of things that you could do and I would suggest a combination of these: 1) Get yourself onto a product that is going to (over the long term), hydrate, protect, nourish and maintain your under eye area. Something like Skin Medica’s TNS Illuminating Eye Cream OR Skin Ceuticals AGE Eye Complex OR Neostrata’s Bionic Eye Cream. For immediate results which are great and long lasting, I’d also highly recommend dermal filler for the under-eye area, and possibly a bit of Botox for the crow’s feet. We can also prescribe some treatments for you if you’d prefer those to Dermal Filler or Botox, however these will take a bit longer for you to see dramatic results and I would have to actually see you to decide on exactly which treatments would best suit your particular condition, but in most cases we would do an eye package that has a combination of carboxy therapy, mesotherapy and laser. Why don’t you consider coming into one of our Skin Renewal Branches so we can give you a proper, detailed consult to give you specific help for your skin?

Question

I’ve been suffering from acne my entire teen and tween years, at some point in my teens it got to a state whereby it was classified as severe acne and put on a very strong dosage of Roacuttane… thankfully it’s cleared with normal breakouts when it’s that time of the month. My main issue is I can never find a product that agrees with my skin or that actually clears up the oiliness and dry patches. Is there a skin care regiment that I can follow or a product that can help? PS: I’m exceptionally hairy as well and low threshold for pain.

I have oily skin and get breakouts, but my main concern is my pores. They are fairly noticeable and I’m really not happy with them. Will regular facials help and what kind should I do?

Question from Lizelle Lloyd

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)
