How does Botox help wrinkles around the eyes?
Patients often ask if Botox Cosmetic can be used to help with wrinkles around the eyes.
And the answer is YES! Botox can help around the eyes!
Although The FDA has just recently approved Botox for use around the eyes,
most doctors have been using it off-label in this area for more than 10 years.
Botox works by simply relaxing the muscles around the eyes. The muscle contraction causes the skin to wrinkle up. You will still be able to smile and look normal after your Botox treatment.
If you have already noticed the lines around your eyes even if you are NOT smiling, then
getting Botox as soon as possible is best. This way you can look less wrinkled when you smile,
and we can PREVENT it from worsening. If you have Botox treatments regularly, your lines that are already “etched” into the skin will begin to go away!!! If you are just beginning to notice these lines when you smile and laugh, now is the time to STOP them!! Let Botox Cosmetic help you relax the muscles causing the wrinkles!!
Each Botox treatment for around the eyes takes about 1-2 minutes!
What does is cost to treat around the eyes with Botox?
The average patient will need to spend about $200-$250 every 3-4 months.
Botox offers a nice rewards program called Brilliant Distinctions. You can earn about $20 with each treatment (4 times per year).
