It depends greatly on the eye cream you choose. While Botox offers more dramatic results for smoothing and relaxing wrinkles than an eye cream can offer, there are some products available now that can offer improvement. Many over-the-counter eye creams can provide moisture to temporarily improve the appearance of lines; however, your best bet is to invest in one of the more sophisticated formulations available through physicians and aestheticians. These products contain advanced ingredients and delivery systems to improve the collagen and elastin of the eye area. When used regularly, the tissue in the eye area can get more sustained improvement in texture and appearance. Here are some of our staff favorites:
