Will Botox get rid of my wrinkles under the eye?

shutterstock_59306794Dr. Dean Kane Q & A. Q. Will Botox get rid of my wrinkles under the eye? I am 26 and have very tired looking eyes. I was looking into getting blepharoplasty in the next year or two, but before doing a drastic surgery, are there other options for me? A. ​Without photos it is most difficult to comment. It is best for you to consult with a well experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial ENT surgeon. ​There are so many considerations for wrinkles under the eyes such as:
  1. ​Sun damage,
  2. Skin thickness,
  3. ​Eye shape; where the eyelid corners meet,
  4. ​Bone shape and projection,
  5. ​Bags, fat, swelling,
  6. ​And others
Botox under the eyelid except in special circumstances may create worsening of eyelid wrinkles and relaxation bulging of the fat bags. ​ ​Consider: ​1. ZO Obagi Skin Health using retinoids, ​2. Chemical and laser peels, ​3. Superficial filler, ​4. Deep filler, ​5. And finally blepharoplasty. ​ ​I hope this has been helpful. All the best!
