Can Botox fix under eye creases around the lash line?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A shutterstock_80002510Q. Can Botox fix under eye creases around the lash line? I am a young woman entering into my 20s. Over the years, I noticed deep creases under my lower lashes. I inherited the deep creases from my mother’s side who are of Cuban heritage. I want to fix this. I want to know if Botox can fix this condition. If not, can fillers do the job? I do not want any invasive procedures done. Thank you in advance! A. ​Botox is a muscle relaxer and under eye creases are created by muscle. ​ ​The answer is “yes-but”. ​Yes, Botox can diminish under eye creases but there maybe a trade-off. ​With prolonged use, the muscle which creates the crease also holds up the eyelid and pushes back swelling and under eyelid bags. So, weakened muscles of the eyelid will not allow the eyelid to function correctly. ​ ​Fillers along the eyelid may cause undesired swelling. ​ ​You may wish to consult with a well experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can direct you and other options to improve lower lid appearance including:
  1. ​retinoids
  2. ​chemical peel
  3. ​laser
  4. ​others
Good luck with this!
