Botox® Cosmetic has become a household name in the dermatology world over the years – it’s helped millions of people to look their best. It’s no wonder that Botox® continues to be one of the most popular injectables on the market. But is it safe to inject in small, sensitive areas like around the eyes? Small areas require skilled hands to be safe but as long as you’re going to the right provider, you’re in luck.
A Tried and True Method For The Expression Lines
Years of facial expressions can leave lasting marks on the face, particularly the upper half. When they catch up with you, they can age you prematurely. Thankfully, you’ve got solutions available to you. Botox® can be used to treat the following:
- Crow’s Feet
- Forehead Lines
- Frown Lines (Glabellar Lines)
- Sagging Brows
- Lip Lines
- Marionette Lines
When injected, Botox® blocks signals to the muscles that cause these aesthetic woes, helping to relax wrinkles and reduce their appearance. Botox® works only on muscles that move, but the results are noticeable and can take years off of your appearance – best of all, there are minimal side effects.
Is Botox® Permanent?
Botox® acts fast – you’ll notice results within a week. But how long will results last? While results last for different amounts of time depending on the patient and the area targeted, you can expect results to last anywhere from three to six months. If you enjoy the results and want to maintain them, you can continue to receive Botox® treatments for as long as you like. Maintenance treatments are just as quick and easy as your first treatment.

Botox® Vs. Dermal Fillers: Which Is The Right Choice?
Dermal fillers are another popular option on the market. Depending on your concerns, you may be torn on which is the better option. Dermal fillers are worth considering if you’re concerned about age-related volume loss or wish to see more volume in the face. If your concerns are under the eyes, dermal fillers may be right for you.
Both Botox® and fillers have their places along the eye line. While fillers can be reversed if the results aren’t ideal, Botox® will continue to work until the neurotoxin wears off. And whichever option you choose, remember that the eye area is delicate. It’s important to receive treatments from a board-certified provider. If you’re torn on which is the best option for you, consult Dr. Lawton’s office for a consultation. We’ve got the right solution to help you look your best.
