Does Juvederm Help Lines in Eye Corners?

Juvederm for lines at the corners of eyes
Fine lines at the corners of your eyes (crows feet) are best treated with botox. Botox will noticeably improve your passive crows feet lines. Other synergistic treatments that you may combine with botox for fine lines at the side of the eye include lasers and very fine fillers. "Fraxel" type non-invasive lasers and other fractional techniques, such as a light fractional CO2 or erbium can be combined with botox on the same day to enhance further the "side of the eye" wrinkle reduction. Very fine soft tissue fillers can be used successfully to treat crows feet and other fine lines but must be injected with great care and precision to avoid lumpiness. Some very fine products that can be used in this area include restylane fine lines and juvederm refine. As with all online information, seek the expertise of an experienced injector physician before proceeding.
Fine lines near eyes
As the skin is so thin near the eyelids, fillers can leave lumps that are felt and seen. Also, the hyaluroinic acids such as Juvederm and Restylane could create bluish discoloration as the skin is so thin here. Botulinum toxin, such as Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are the ideal treatments for this condition.
Crows feet are best treated with Botox
The "lines" outside the corners of the eyes are usually referred to as "crows feet" and are best treated with Botox to relax them. Lasers such as Fraxel work great with Botox to stimulate collagen and thicken the skin so it doesn't wrinkle as easily.
Fillers such as Juvederm are not the best treatment for these type of lines as the skin is usually very thin in this area and the filler may protrude if injected here. It does not sound as if you are asking about the tear troughs (hollows below eyes) which are usually treated with fillers.

Wrinkles around the eyes
There are multiple other modalities to improve on wrinkles around the eyes than fillers.
Hyaluronic acid can be used, but ir prone to lumpiness because of then skin being very thin. If injected it should be done by an expert. Crows feet is better treated with Botox, CO2 laser, and medium TCA peels.
Juvederm for corner's of the eyes
If you are complaining about fine lines from crow's feet then I would recommend Botox. Sometimes this si enough. If the lines are very etched or deep, then small amounts of filler may be helpful.
Injectables for the corner of the eye area - depends on the problem
The answer to your question depends upon exactly what your concerns are. If it is "crow's feet" then a muscle relaxer like Dysport or Botox is best. If it is a hollow area, such as below the lower eyelid towards the nose, then a filler such as Juvederm is better. There are some good applications for fillers below the outer corner, but it is not as common.
Juvederm for Lines in Corners of Eyes; Stick with Botox or Dysport
Some have injected Juvederm into the lateral eye lines (Crow's feet), but the skin is extremely thin and unforgiving in this area. Many time these injections result in lumps, bumps, and discoloration. Best to stick with Botox or Dysport to smooth Crow's feet.
Good luck and be well.
