Muscle actions play a big role in aging around the eyes, as contractions lead to initial dynamic wrinkles followed by more permanent lines. Botox injections are great for stopping crow’s-feet and the vertical frown lines between the brows. The treatment takes mere minutes and results last for three to four months on average.
Botox can also be used as an “injectable browlift” to slightly elevate the brow and eliminate horizontal lines across the forehead, helping the upper face look younger and more relaxed. Many plastic surgeons consider Botox to be an integral part of a surgical browlift, since its use before surgery can help relax the muscles and facilitate healing.
On the other hand, Botox cannot accomplish the same results as surgery. With excess or lax skin around the upper and lower eyelids, surgical intervention is best.
