Fine lines and wrinkles around the upper and lower eyelids, crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines between the brows can make the upper face appear tired and old.
Even if a person gets plenty of sleep, under eye bags can create a tired facial appearance. People seeking to rejuvenate and revitalize their eye appearance in a non-surgical manner may consider Botox injections.
The FDA approved Botox medical spa treatment for the correction of frown lines between the brows in 2002. Subsequently, Botox also received the FDA’s approval for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet in 2013. Fine lines, minor wrinkles, and under eye bags can also be mitigated with Botox.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides Botox to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding locations.
Benefits of Botox
Botox injectable procedure will avoid the risks and complications that are usually associated with a plastic surgery such as eyelid lift.
This procedure also avoids the chances of asymmetrical scars as it does not involve any incisions or cuts. Botox can be undertaken as an in-office procedure without the requirement for general anesthesia or sedation.
Working professionals and busy moms are good candidates for Botox injectable treatment as they can simply resume their normal routine right after the treatment. Botox can be completed in under 30 minutes for the brows and eyes.
Ideal for Brow Lines
The FDA has approved Botox for the reduction of vertical brow lines. Repetitive movements such as frowning, smiling, or squinting can create permanent marks over a period. Botox helps mitigate these marks and lines by reducing muscle contractions in the treated areas.
Botox can help reduce horizontal lines on the forehead and vertical lines between the brows. It will gently smooth the brow region to develop a more alert and youthful eye appearance.
Reduction of Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet (lateral canthal lines) are the fine lines and wrinkles that radiate outwardly from the outside corners of the eyes. These lines can cause the eyes look tired making a person appear older than their years. The FDA approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes in 2013.
Botox can help the eyes look rested, rejuvenated, and more youthful. It can also be used for various off-label anti-aging procedures, wherever the underlying dynamic muscles of the face are causing minor wrinkles or fine lines on the surface of the skin.
How does Botox work?
Botulinum neurotoxin is the active component in Botox. It has a unique attribute to impede communication between the nerve and muscle when it is directly administered into a muscle in prescribed doses.
The Botox medical spa provider will use fine needles to administer the drug directly into the targeted hyperactive muscle. This enables the muscle to relax causing the wrinkle to fade away.
