Would Botox help with hooded eyes or would I benefit more from a procedure to remove some skin?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A shutterstock_86444608 Q. Would Botox help with hooded eyes or would I benefit more from a procedure to remove some skin? I have hooded eyes or excess skin on my eyelids. I am 25 and feel like is a hereditary condition for me. A. You will need a proper consultation to evaluate your concerns and options from a well experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Cosmetic Ophthalmologist. As you point out, the upper outer corner is covered by skin laxity. At this time it appears that you have mild lateral forehead laxity and not eyelid skin laxity. Be careful not to proceed to an eyelid lift if not necessary as this will reduced the distance from your eyebrow to your eyelid and decrease the ability to surgically raise your eyebrow in the future. At 25, it is just a guess without an examination but Botox along the upper crow’s foot to lift the lateral brow and a gentle amount of filler along the outer upper boney margin will help fill out and frame your otherwise beautifully shaped eye. Once elevated, a thermal procedure like ClearLift may shrink or tighten the forehead skin just enough to achieve a mild eyebrow lift without surgery. I hope this has been helpful. All the best!
