Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. I had Botox about a month ago for my lines when I smiled and I’m pretty happy with the results. I’d like to know if there is anything else I could do for the little lines left directly under my eyes?
A. Botox for lower eyelid lines is a slippery slope. Yes, it will reduce fine dynamic lines but in relaxing the eyelid muscle to do so may allow for the eye-bags to protrude. Be judicious in its use.
Sculptra is a very advanced technique and definitely not useful as a initial improvement for fine lines of the lower eyelids. You have many other options including:
Skin tightening with retinoids; seek a Certified ZO Obagi Skin Health Specialist
Chemical peels to tighten the skin
Fraxel CO2 or Erbium Pixel lasering
Artfully and carefully injected dermal fillers
I hope this is helpful. Consult with very experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or ENT Facial Surgeon for your best recommendations. All the best. « Previous PostNext Post »
