Volume loss under the eyes may be more apparent after Botox and can be treated with Restylane
Thank you for your question m222. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expressions such as the crows feet and bunny lines. Many people have volume loss below the eyes, which may not be initially apparent. But after a Botox treatment when the muscles are relaxed it becomes apparent. This is because the muscle below the eye sometimes pulls on the upper cheek to hold it up if there is not enough volume underneath to keep it up by itself. In such cases restoring volume in the tear trough with Restylane may provide improvement. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
