I have a lot of wrinkles under my eyes which make me appear at least 10 years older

Submitted by admin on January 23, 2011

I am a 46-year-old woman. I have a lot of wrinkles under my eyes which make me appear at least 10 years older. Is it safe to have Botox injections under the eye?

Wrinkles under the eyes are common, they are often quite fine and these are particularly well treated with botox. Sometimes the lines can be a little deeper and may be best treated with a combination of both botox and a fine filler. The area under the eyes tends to be a little more sensitive than skin elsewhere, so we sometimes will use a local anaesthetic cream on the skin to make the treatments more comfortable.
