Treating wrinkles around the eyes with Botox
Congratulations on the desired weight loss! Yes, Botox can help improve wrinkles around the eyes. However, for patients who have facial volume loss, facial fillers (ex. Radiesse, Restylane, etc) can rejuvenate too. Many patients can benefit from combined treatments. Without an office examination, it's difficult to determine appropriate options for you. If you haven't already, then speak with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
The best way to determine what is best for you is to see a physician in person. You should see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your options.
Thank you for your question. Botox will help minimize the lines when you smile. Fillers will help fill in volume loss. I would recommend consulting with a Board Certified Dermatologist for best treatment plan. I hope this helps!
Combination of treatments for wrinkles
After losing a significant amount of weight, just like in other areas of the
body, there may be volume changes in the face that you might notice. Volume
loss can be corrected with a variety of fillers depending on the location and
intended goal, while dynamic wrinkles can respond to Botox injections. Many aesthetic concerns are best served
by a combination of the two. Your
physician may also want to address the possibility of a surgical correction if
redundant eyelid skin is playing a role.
There are several factors that can contribute to undereye wrinkles that you may want to consider. Simple skin redundancy may appear as fine lines and wrinkles. This can be addressed with either a good skin care program, chemical peels or laser treatment. If redundancy is severe enough, surgery may be required. If volume loss is contributing to the wrinkles then adding volume can be very helpful. Finally if the wrinkles are formed because of the muscle action around the eye, a neuro toxin like Botox may be the best treatment option. I have found that quite often a combined approach with 2 or more treatment modalities achieves the best results.
Botox for wrinkles under the eyes
Congratulations on your weight loss. Botox can help modest wrinkles around the eyes. If some of the wrinkling is due to major volume loss, Botox alone may not be the answer. You may need fillers or even surgery, so consult in person with a board-certified plastic surgeon for best answers. Best wishes.
Congratulations on losing 50 pounds. Since you have lost a great deal of weight then there will be a volume that needs to be replaced in the face. The skin laxity may also need to be addressed as well. If you could post a photo it would be helpful. The dynamic wrinkles can be helped by Botox. The areas under the eyes will probably need a filler like Belotero. Belotero when carefully placed in the tear trough area will look subtle and natural and you should be happy with the results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Belotero for the delicate tear trough area.
Wrinkling of the lower eyelid when smiling
Congratulations on your weight loss!! If you are looking to improve your appearance and how you feel nothing is more beneficial than weight loss. I am asked weekly the same question you have posed. Wrinkling of the lower eyelids when smiling is the result of several different issues. Muscle around your eye does contract when you smile and a small amount of Botox or other neuromodulator into the lower eyelid muscle will help decrease the contraction of the muscle and decrease wrinkling. The other issue has to do with the tone and elasticity of your eyelid skin. As we age and are exposed to elements such as sun, wind, smoke, etc. our skin loses a great deal of what we call elasticity. In young healthy skin the skin will contract and not bunch because of good elasticity. In skin that is not as healthy, the skin will contract but tends to bunch. It occurs around the eyes, crows feet, and in the lower eyelids. I would suggest some Botox for this issue for immediate improvement, but you should also consider discussing the condition of your skin with a knowledgeable specialist.
Botox for wrinkles around eyes
Botox is great for dynamic wrinkles around the eyes such as Crow's feet, and even in small doses carefully applied right under the eyes too. Not everyone benefits, and sometimes tear trough filler is also required. Best to speak with your dermatologist about the best treatment options for you.
Wrinkle fillers and botox
Botox is great for the wrinkles on the sides of the eyes, your crows feet. But if you have excessive skin after loosing weight, then I think fillers (like juvederm, restylane) or a blepharoplasty with skin removal is the appropriate intervention. See someone in the office so they can see if it's just a loss of volume or if it's excrssive skin. Hope that helps!
