Botox for Eyes: The Best Anti-Aging Treatment for the Eyes
Botox an Effective Treatment for Under-Eye Wrinkles
From a sagging brow to droopy eyelids, the signs and effects of aging in and around your eye area can make your face look much older than it should. Even those tiny little lines that develop beneath the eyes and creep out from around the edges (aka crow’s feet), contribute to giving you a more tired and worn out appearance. Botox treatments around the eyes are extremely popular, especially as the results take years off of your face, giving you a rejuvenated, fresher and more vibrant appearance.
Many question the safety of Botox treatments for the brow or the eyelids, or even to treat crow’s feet. As Botox experts, at Schweiger Dermatology Group, we understand the safest and most effective ways to treat with Botox and thus provide long lasting and gorgeous results. If you are curious about Botox for sagging eyelids or a Botox brow lift and wondering if this is a solution for you, keep reading to find out more about how Botox can make your eyes look twenty years younger.
The Botox Brow Lit
With age unfortunately comes looser and less elastic skin. Missing the firmness of our youth, in our brow area especially, the skin can start to descend and in the process form lines and wrinkles. A sagging and wrinkled brow area can certainly make the face overall seem older than it should look. This is where the concept of a non-surgical brow lift comes into play. Far less invasive than any type of surgery, Botox for the brow area can bring back that younger appearance with just a few injections and no downtime.
Botox is a natural protein that, when injected into the area of treatment, causes the muscles to relax and therefore essentially stops these muscles from pulling down on the brow. This helps to give the brow that bit of extra lift, while also helping to smooth out the skin and diminish the look of any wrinkles in that particular region.
A virtually pain free procedure, patients see results almost immediately and the effects of the Botox brow lift generally last anywhere from 2-4 months.
Botox for Drooping Eyelids
Eyelids that droop over the eye itself is a common sign of aging and a cause for discomfort and self-consciousness for many. Again, rather than submit to invasive surgery with a long recovery time, Botox for sagging eyelids performed by a board certified cosmetic dermatologist can easily help rectify the issue.
An in-office procedure, the Botox injections work to relax that muscle and thereby tighten up the sagging skin of the eyelid. Not to mention, the Botox helps to dissipate the appearance of wrinkles in and around the eyelid area.
Botox for Crow’s Feet
We’ve all heard the term crow’s feet, and most dread the appearance of the first few lines peeking out from around the edges of our eyes. This again gives you a tired and weary appearance that does not reveal the true you. Our job as the best cosmetic dermatologists is to help people feel like their best possible selves, and by using Botox injections to treat crow’s feet, we are allowing patients to feel younger and more vibrant.
As with Botox for sagging eyelids and the forehead/brow area, in treating crow’s feet, Botox relaxes the muscles around the eye and thereby makes the skin look much firmer, erasing the lines and wrinkles that detract from the true beauty of the eyes. The process is painless and you can resume normal activities immediately after the office visit. As far as any side effects, there may be some slight redness at the site of the injection, but that goes away in a very short amount of time.
The goal of cosmetic dermatology is to make patients feel better about themselves and more confident about how they look. With the eyes especially, the signs of aging can contribute to a lack of confidence and an uncomfortableness about one’s appearance. Botox results prove that you can appear more youthful almost instantly, more like how your truly feel inside!
