Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on botox and how to treat the eyes.
Botox® around the eyes is one of the 3 most commonly treated areas, together with the frown and forehead. Lines around the eyes are also known as crows feet or smile lines.
Broadly speaking there are two types of smilers and we would have a different approach with botox with each one.
The first group are known as eye smilers. In this group the lines appear quite high up and can stretch as far as the patients eyebrows. In these cases, we would inject the botox evenly across the lines and at least one centimetre away from the orbital rim (bony part of the eye).
The second group of are known as cheek smilers. In this group the lines appear from the midline of the eye and sweep downwards towards the cheeks. With this group of patients we need to be careful when injecting botox. If we inject too low or too much of botox, we will over free the cheek area. This will cause extra lines and scrunching of the skin under the eyes when the patient smiles. Therefore we would use a reduced dose of botox when injecting towards the cheeks.
