Botox for Under Eyes FAQs

The answer is more complicated than a yes or no. It depends on the skincare concern/s you would like to correct in this area. Before we would recommend Botox for under eyes, we would need to identify whether you would like to treat:

  • Under eye wrinkles, lines or crow’s feet
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Puffiness under the eyes
  • Under eye hollows

Although an off-label use, Botox has good efficacy for treating Crow’s Feet, as well as wrinkles or lines around the eyes. That’s because Botox was specifically designed to treat lines of expression that tend to become static as we age. By weaking the contraction of facial muscles, it can soften, reduce or eliminate wrinkles or furrows in the skin, such as laugh lines around the eyes. 

Botox is not a treatment of choice for smoothing hollows, bags or puffiness under eye area. In fact, it may make these issues worse. Specifically, the muscles under the eyes are responsible for holding the fat pads in place. By weakening the muscle with Botox, the fat pads can become even more destablized. As a result, they can bulge or recede even more. Instead, consider an Ultherapy treatment or a dermal filler, like Juvederm or Restylane, to get rid of under eye bags or hollows.

Botox is never indicated to help with skin discoloration. It’s mechanism of action has to do with smoothing the muscle, which has nothing to do with changing skin tone. Other options, such as lasers, chemical peels or facials can help with dark circles under the eye area.

Generally speaking, Botox risks are less than plastic surgery. That said, it’s important to remember that the eye area is extremely delicate. Therefore, always seek out treatment from a skilled professional who has experience using injectables at the proper dose.
