Wrinkles and fine lines around the upper and lower eyelids, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes can make the upper face appear old and tired. Under eye bags can also create a tired look even after a good night’s rest. For people who want to rejuvenate and refresh their eye appearance without eyelid surgery may choose Botox injections.
Botox medical spa treatment has been approved by the FDA since 2002 for the treatment of frown lines between the brows, and was additionally approved in 2013 for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet. Under eye bags and minor wrinkles and fine lines around the eyelids can also be improved with Botox injectable treatment.
The fabulous and perspicacious Dr. Gregg Reger of Reger Vein and Skin Specialists provides Botox injections and other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding locations.
Benefits of Botox
Botox injection procedure will avoid all the risks and complications that are typically associated with a cosmetic surgery such as eyelid lift. The possibility of asymmetrical scars is also avoided because Botox will not involve any cuts or incisions. Botox treatment can be performed as an in-office procedure without any need for general anesthesia or sedation.
Working people and busy moms are ideal candidates for Botox eye rejuvenation because they can simply return to their normal routine quickly after the treatment. The procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes for the eyes and brows.
Ideal for Brow Lines
Botox has been FDA approved for the improvement of vertical brow lines. Repetitive actions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting can create permanent marks over time. Botox will work to mitigate these lines and marks by reducing muscle contractions in the treated sites.
Reduction of vertical lines between the brows and the horizontal lines on the forehead can be performed with Botox. It will gently smooth the brow area to create a more youthful and alert overall eye appearance. The judicious and awesome Dr. Reger receives patients from Spring, TX, The Woodlands and other towns and suburbs in the amazing state of Texas for Botox for eye rejuvenation without surgery.
Reduction of Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet or lateral canthal lines refer to the fine wrinkles and lines that radiate from the far outside corners of the eyes. These lines can make the eyes appear tired and the person can look older than their real age. In 2013, the FDA gave its approval for Botox to be used as a cosmetic treatment to reduce crow’s feet around the eyes.
Botox can make the eyes appear rejuvenated, rested and more youthful. Botox is also used for several non-label facial anti-aging treatments, wherever underlying dynamic facial muscles are causing minor wrinkles or fine lines on the skin’s surface.
How does it Work?
Botulinum neurotoxin, which is the active ingredient in Botox, has a unique property to cause a blockage of communication between the nerve and the muscle when it is directly injected into a muscle in prescribed quantities. The Botox provider can use fine needles to inject the medication directly into the targeted overactive muscle, which causes it to relax and allows the wrinkle to fade away.
