Non-Surgical Eye Rejuvenation With Botox and Restylane
It can be so frustrating to see your eyes looking old and droopy. If you feel you appear tired or angry all the time, you’ve likely hunted high and low for the best eye creams money can buy only to find that they don’t work. You may even have considered a blepharoplasty, or eyelift surgery, but are concerned about the downtime associated with cosmetic surgery. Rest assured, you are not out of options. Here at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana, we offer a wide-range of non-surgical eye rejuvenation treatment options, the most popular of which are injectable wrinkle relaxers and cosmetic fillers.
Botox for Crow’s Feet
Botox, which has been used as a wrinkle relaxing injectable since 2002, received additional FDA-approval for crow’s feet in 2013. When injected into the upper face, Botox relaxes the underlying muscles responsible for the formation and deepening of lines and wrinkles. When administered by a board-certified dermatologic surgeon into the crow’s feet area, the existing lines soften over a few days and results last up to four months. We also recommend including a retinol to improve and help maintain your results.
Restylane for Under-Eye Bags
In addition to treating your crow’s feet with Botox, you may also want to take care of those under-eye bags. Let’s face it, all the cucumber slices in the world can only help so much. While under eye creams containing caffeine can provide a temporary solution to puffiness and dark circles, a more dramatic and long-term solution is Restylane. Restylane is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler that helps smooth the under eye area, providing non-surgical eye rejuvenation that lasts up to 12 months.
Are there other options for non-surgical eye rejuvenation?
If you aren’t a good candidate for cosmetic injectables, there are other options for reducing the appearance of aged eyes. Laser treatments, microneedling, and some topical skin care products are good alternatives to injectables. While they won’t provide the same results, many patients do see improvement with crow’s feet, puffiness, and discoloration around the eyes. The best way to find out which options are right for you is to have a consultation with our board-certified dermatologic surgeon in our dermatology practice located in Carmel, just north of Indianapolis.
