Botox Before and After – Eyes

There are many reasons why someone may choose to have a Botox treatment. In this article, we’re telling you about a botox before and after: Eyes.

What is Botox?

Botox is a form of injection used to relax muscles in the face. This can lead to the muscles moving less and therefore having an impact on your fine lines and wrinkles. People can have Botox around the eyes, forehead, brows, lips, jawline, chin and other areas.

Botox itself is an injection containing botulinum toxin. Many beauty procedures, including botox, are only suitable for those over 18 years of age. This is for safety reasons.

Before having a beauty procedure, you should ensure that it is the right treatment for you. A highly skilled beauty therapist will be happy to discuss your options and find a solution that works for you. It’s important to have a good understanding of the process and what you can expect from the results of your Botox injections.

What is a Botox injection used for around the eyes?

Botox works by reducing the appearance of lines. Frown lines are also commonly referred to as 11 lines, as they appear in that way between the brows. These typically become visible when we make certain facial expressions. Over time, facial expressions and aging cause wrinkles such as forehead lines and crow’s feet.

Botox may also be used to treat fine lines, such as crow’s feet. Crow’s feet lines appear in the creases of the eyes when a face is scrunched up. Botox injections may also be used to treat droopy eyelids.

Frown lines and facial wrinkles are very common, and while some people don’t mind them, others look for ways to reduce them around the eye area. Botox can help to relax the forehead muscles. This is different to dermal fillers in that it targets the muscle rather than the space between. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to create a more plump appearance.

The injections can be used between the brows and potentially at the end of the brow too. This helps to elevate features and helps the facial muscles to relax in a couple of places. This can help to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.

Botox in the eye area can make the eyes appear wider, which can help you to have a more youthful appearance. This cosmetic procedure may also reduce the signs of tired eyes.

Botox procedures are non-surgical. This means they require little downtime compared to some other options. Many people choose this option purely due to its reduced need for recovery time.

Some other options require surgery, which means you would have to set time aside for recovery.

How long does Botox last on eye wrinkles?

Botox injections are only a temporary fix. They do tend to require topping up every 3 – 6 months. However, you should avoid having Botox in fast succession. Having too much botox can lead to the muscles becoming too relaxed and no longer moving.

You may find that while the results have started to wear off after six months, you are still happy with the appearance of your lines. This means you can wait a little longer before topping up the botox treatment.

Your beauty practitioner may be able to give you an idea of when you could have the Botox injections again at the same injection site. Read our blog on how long does Botox last?

Botox treatment cost

The cost of your botox injections depends on many factors. The first factor is how much Botox you plan to have. Some individuals choose to have the injections in multiple places. Another factor is how much product is used. This will depend on the appearance of your facial wrinkles. Deep creases may require more treatment.

Generally, you should expect to pay over £100 for one injection site. You should be wary of those offering an injectable treatment for a very low price. These prices are usually too good to be true and could lead to issues. These people might use cheap ingredients, or they may not be fully qualified to treat eye wrinkles.

Finding a trusted practitioner

Before selecting somewhere to have your Botox treatment, you need to ensure that the practitioners are qualified. You should be able to ask them what qualifications they have and how much experience they have. A great beauty practitioner will be happy to tell you this information.

Most Botox treatments will take place in a salon, but wherever you have them, you need to ensure that it is clean and you feel comfortable. Check to see what the standard procedures are for your treatment. Make sure that the place you select follows all of these procedures.

A quality salon will ensure that you feel completely at ease before any treatment takes place. They will ask you if you have any questions or concerns before starting. They will also be honest with you about your beauty goals and how you can achieve them.

Botox before and after Eyes

The results of your Botox injection should be visible after around four days. In the beginning, you may have some side effects such as redness, swelling and bruising around the treated area. These can make it harder to see the results straight away. As these side effects wear off, the results will become visible.

Botox around the eyes can include various areas, such as the glabellar lines and crow’s feet. Here is an example of crow’s feet being treated at Therapy House. Some individuals also consider forehead Botox.

You should monitor your symptoms and seek medical advice if you become worried after botox injections. Your practitioner will explain common side effects and at what point you should seek advice.

Most patients continue as normal after having the treatment, but some prefer to stay at home until side effects such as bruising have eased. After the treatment, you should avoid excessive sweating, excessive alcohol consumption and any other facial treatments for a certain period of time. Find out more about what not to do after Botox.
