Are you starting to notice wrinkles and fine lines creeping around your eyes?
If that’s the case, you’re dealing with crow’s feet. Crow’s feet are common wrinkles that arise as a result of frequent squinting and other eye movements. Adding to the effects of repetitive movement, eye skin also tends to be thinner than surrounding facial skin, leading to more sagging over time. It’s no wonder more people point to crow’s feet as the first sign of their own facial aging!
Botox can help minimize the look of crow’s feet, but many people feel hesitant about getting injections so close to their eyes. With that in mind, we’ll aim to answer this popular question:
“Is it safe to get Botox near my eyes?”
Why Botox is Safe to Use Near Your Eyes
Good news: Botox is FDA-approved to treat crow’s feet, meaning this injection is safe to use near your eyes. The treatment is precise enough to treat crow’s feet without affecting the surrounding areas.
Botox is safe near the eyes and is typically used around the eyes – for the lines between the brows, crow’s feet lines, etc. If you’re worried about pain, have your dermatologist or plastic surgeon treat the area with ice or numbing cream before your injection.
Choose a Plastic Surgeon for Botox Injections
While Botox is safe to use near your eyes, it’s still a good idea to get your treatment done by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. These professionals are highly educated and trained to identify how treatments may affect your facial structure. For that reason, they’ll not only know how to administer Botox safely near your eyes; they’ll also know how to achieve the natural-looking results you want.
