Treatments for under the eyes
Thank you for your question NoMoreSaggyPatty. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression such as the crow's feet seen around the eyes when on smiles. A small amount of Botox can be placed directly under the eyes to address wrinkles there. Sometimes when a muscle is relaxed with Botox other nearby muscles are recruited to compensate for the relaxed muscle. Bunny lines on the nose can also be treated with Botox. Other treatments under the eyes include fillers such as Restylane which helps with the hollows and shadowing and fractional laser resurfacing, which helps with fine lines and wrinkles. A good eye cream is also helpful. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Thank you for the question and pictures. Your concern is a common one. Botox or Dysport should be injected into the crows feet, not under the eye. The hollows that you have are best treated with a filler such as Restylane or Juvederm but these may or may not improve the dark circles but likely would help. Retinol eye cream or light peels will also improve fine lines. Keep in mind that when you smile it raises your cheeks so you will always have some compression lines under the eyes when animating. See an experienced PS for a hands on evaluation.
Under eye wrinkle treatment with Botox, fillers, microneedling and laser resurfacing #Williamsville NY
Thank you for your question and picture posts.
This requires combination treatment with microneedling, laser resurfacing, filler and mini Botox. See someone who has expertise in all of the above techniques for under eye wrinkles.
I see this mainly as a volume problem and recommend Restylane placed with a cannula around the eyes. Cannulas are safer and have less bruising. I also see active bunny lines which could improve with some Botox.
Thanks for the question. Botox is designed to treat the crows feet, the wrinkles that form from smiling. Fillers are to treat the hollows under the eyes. Neither specifically treat the "dark circles" but the combination can improve the appearance. You may even need a lower blepharoplasty. A detailed exam by a facial specialist who is experienced in lower eyelid surgery would be a valuable step. I wish you the best!
Thanks for all your photos.
Your eyes can be helped with a combo of Botox and fillers. Both can be necessary.
Fastest solution is a little touch up of with Botox of the remaining active areas.
