Fine lines under eyes
Please be aware that Botox in the area needs to be injected by someone experienced with this. This is not like treating crows feet or the frown lines. A little too much Botox in that area could leave you miserable for the next 2-3 months. See a board certified plastic surgeon who is well versed in eyelid function.
Fine line below eyes
I would consider a small dose of Botox under the lower lid so as to relax the muscle which closes your eyes. This muscle is called the orbicularis and is also responsible for the crow's feet which occur at the corner of the eye at a later stage in life.
This must be done carefully by a trained plastic surgeon as anything around the eyelid needs a lot of expertise and experience.
If this improves matter than you may consider having this done every 4-6months as the effect of any neurotoxin (like Botox/Dysport etc) will wear off.
It is critical to look at sunscreen application and skin care to maintain and improve you skin. Starting early will benefit you in the longer term.
I hope this is helpful in addressing your issues.
BOTOX® or injectable fillers may be great solutions for you.

Thank you for your question.
It is difficult to determine if Botox is right for you without a full assessment. Botox may assist reducing the lines under your eyes.
I'd recommend booking a consultation with a skilled and qualified injector to discuss your options.

Botox under eyes for lines present since birth
- Yes - these lines are caused by attachment of the skin to the underlying muscle.
- Botox will relax the muscle so the line softens or fades.
- It usually needs to be redone every 3 months.
- Please see a Board Certified plastic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon or dermatologist only-
- The injections are directly over the eye and need an understanding of eye anatomy that most injectors do not have. .
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
