Can Botox Help With Saggy Eyelids?
- Posted on: Oct 15 2015
If you are like many women, you have started to face the toll that gravity and old age place on your face. A drooping neckline, eyelids, and other parts of your body that you didn’t know could droop so low, can make you feel, well, defeated. But with injections like Botox taking over almost every part of the medical industry, it has patients wondering if Botox can help with things like saggy eyelids. Read on to learn more.
What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA approved prescription drug that is injected into the skin in order to treat things like fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. This temporary injection typically lasts anywhere from 3-4 months in which patients have to redo their treatment in order to maintain the results.
Can Botox Help with Saggy Eyelids?
Botox is a great tool that can be used to not only fill in fine lines and wrinkles but to also plump up certain areas of the face that might be sagging due to the tolls of gravity of old age. If injected just above the eye and underneath the eyebrow, Botox can help to plump up any sagging skin and lift the eyelid area in order to give you a more perky looking expression. However, depending on the severity of your drooping eyelids and on other physical factors, you and your doctor will have to discuss the effectiveness of this type of treatment option.
Does It Last?
As mentioned above, one of the downfalls to using a temporary injection is that they are, well, temporary. Typically only lasting anywhere from 3-4 months, the effects of Botox will start to slowly wear away and if you were happy with the initial results, you will want to schedule another appointment with your doctor to get it redone.
If you and your self esteem are suffering due to saggy eyelids, then you should schedule an appointment with your doctor in order to discuss if Botox is the right treatment option for you. During your initial consultation you and your doctor will be able to assess what is the right cosmetic route for you to take in order to get optimal results.
