The Benefits and Expectations of Botox Around the Eyes

Botox is a popular non-surgical treatment that can help you achieve a youthful, refreshed appearance. At Henderson Eye Care, we offer Botox injections as part of our range of cosmetic services.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein that temporarily relaxes muscles when injected in small amounts. It’s most commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles – these are wrinkles that form due to repeated facial expressions like frowning or squinting.

Benefits of Botox Around the Eyes

Botox around the eyes can provide several benefits:

  1. Reduced Appearance of Wrinkles: Botox can smooth out crow’s feet, the fine lines that appear at the corners of our eyes as we age.
  2. Lifting Drooping Eyebrows: By relaxing specific muscles, Botox can provide a non-surgical brow lift, resulting in a more alert and youthful appearance.
  3. Reduced Eyelid Spasms: Botox was initially approved by the FDA for treating eyelid spasms, demonstrating its safety and effectiveness.

What to Expect During and After the Procedure

During your appointment at Henderson Eye Care, Dr. Pamela R. Henderson will first discuss your cosmetic goals. She will then strategically inject Botox into specific areas around your eyes. The procedure is quick, usually taking about 10-15 minutes, and most patients report minimal discomfort.

After the procedure, you may experience slight bruising or swelling, but these effects typically subside within a few days. You should start seeing results within one to two weeks, and these results can last up to four months.

While Botox is a safe procedure, it’s crucial to have it administered by a qualified professional. Dr. Henderson has years of experience providing cosmetic services, including Botox, Juvederm, and Blepharoplasty.

We invite you to contact us at Henderson Eye Care to schedule a consultation and learn more about how Botox can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. We’re dedicated to improving the quality of life with excellent vision for everyone, and that includes helping you feel confident about your appearance.
