It is most important to wear sunglasses in the summer to protect your lower eyelids. Well some people like to use toners you certainly have no need to do so. ...Read more

What dose of tazorac (tazarotene) should I mix with my under eye cream to improve wrinkles and fine lines?

Just a Smidge!: Tazorac, retin a, (tretinoin) retinoic acid… all have an fda approval for reduction of wrinkles around the eyes. Use the equivalent of one half the size of a pea mixed with your eye cream which should be enough for both sides.

Will mixing tazorac (tazarotene) with under eye moisture cream help with tightening under my eyes and filling in  wrinkles around my eyes?

Retinoids Work!: Yes it will work, absolutely, it is long term, and retin-a, a closely related product is actually one of the very few fda approved anti-wrinkle creams! you must be careful with it though, it is a mild acid, and can burn your skin, especially in the sun. Start out by using it every other day mixed in a very small amount, mixed with your regular moisturizing cream. I give this to all my patients. ...Read more
