Hollowing under eyes after Botox
Botox and under eye hollows
It is best to wait out the period of botox efficacy (4 months) and then reassess the entire facial/periocular area for rejuvenation. One of the detrimental effects of chronic toxin treatments are subtle changes in facial features over time. This is why a conservative approach to the use of neurotoxins and fillers in facial rejuvenation is a more prudent course rather than to prescriptively return for follow ups at 4 monthly intervals for years on end.

Patients may complain of "hollowness underneath the eyes caused by Botox". Since Botox does not cause eye hollowness, it is very likely this physical finding was present long time be fore the Botox injection. However, due to the crow's feet lines, this could have been "masked" by the wrinkles. Very often, patients after Botox treatment start to realize other aesthetically unpleasant physical findings of the face once the full effect of botox is in place ( like hollowness under the eyes). This is because the wrinkle free Botox treatment area no longer "catches the eye's attention". Before and after pictures in my practice are an excellent way to demonstrate the above statement on my practice.
Hollowing under the eyes could be improved either surgically or with filler treatment.
