Is it safe to get botox near my eyes?
Botox is safe for use around the eyes, as it is approved for the treatment of wrinkles at the corner of the eyes, also known as crow’s feet. Botox can be safely used in this area, because it is designed for reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which occur as a result of repetitive muscle movement (learn more).
Crow’s feet are dynamic wrinkles that develop due to the movement of the facial muscles related to expressions such as squinting, and smiling. When botox is injected, it prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles, so there is less muscle movement. As a result, the nearby wrinkles soften over time.
Although botox has a good safety profile, it is important to have treatment done by an experienced, qualified botox injector. An expert injector generally has the ability to treat any complications that may occur. Botox does have serious side-effects such as swelling, bruising, dryness, and droopy eyelids, and that’s why it is always best to choose an expert injector.
Botox is a simple in-office treatment that takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. The results can be seen within 3 days, and last an average of 3-4 months.
