I lots of have loose skin under my eyes, what is the best treatment? Laser or bleph?

Either: Laser treatment with a fractional laser is a good non-invasive way to start. If this doesn't work then you can try fillers under the eyes (or PRP under the eyes).

Loose skin in lower cheeks and under eyes just at an age of 21, what should I do.I can't afford laser treatment, what are the natural alternatives?

Loose skin in lower cheeks and under eyes just at an age of 21, what should I do.I can't afford laser treatment, what are the natural alternatives?

Doesn't make sense.: At your age, unless you have underlying medical issues you should not have age-related facial changes. If you feel like you have abnormal skin, see a dermatologist. If you smoke, stop- this will age you prematurely. My suggestion is that if you choose to see a cosmetic surgeon, see a busy one with a good reputation who won't be tempted to offer you a procedure you won't need. ...Read more

If your skin is youthful and you are not obese, your skin still has a unique degree of elasticity that would allow some degree of return to normal, as after pregnancy. ...Read more

What are the best exercises to firm up loose skin?

No such thing: There are no exercises to firm up loose skin. Sorry! the only way this might work is by increasing the size of the underlying muscles so much that the skin tightens around the larger muscles. This is rarely desirable. Perhaps female arms or a male chest might be improved this way on occasion, but for thighs or abdomen, very few people want to make these areas bigger so that the skin is not loose. ...Read more
