I was wondering if there is anything that can be done for creping under the eyes other than surgery? I am trying Botox, and it helps some with the crow's feet, but not with the fine lines that are right up under the lower lash line and extending down for about 5 millimeters.
you can put the botox closer right under the eye to relax that muscle, not perfectly but better. Your doctor needs to know how to do that. The crepiness can also be improved with skin treatments like plasma resurfacing, chemical peels, etc. the skin tone needs to be improved but botox is the single most important long-term treatment to reduce and manage wrinkles. sometimes, if the botox is placed too far to the side (outer part of the eye),you can get more bunching. to get the best and smoothest results, i inject about 8 spots on each side and no, unlike elsewhere, with the smaller needles i use and parallel skin injection techniques there is NO pain. remember the real key for safety is not to chase a wrinkle that goes too far down into the face. review my learning module on botox at [url] http://www.lamfacialplastics.com/learni ... exas3.html[/url]
for details on how to avoid problems around the eye. be careful with going into the cheek area where you capture the zygomatic muscle and cause an abnormal smile or worse yet abnormal speech.[url][/url]
