15Can Botox Help hooded eyelids?
While most of us are familiar with BOTOX’s benefits for smoothing forehead lines and wrinkles, some patients may be surprised to learn that BOTOX can also help to lift drooping brows and correct hooded eyes.
BOTOX can be injected into the outer corners of the brows and the brows’ area, also known as the glabella. This procedure is intended to stimulate the muscles that are responsible for drooping brows, resulting in the appearance of a raised upper lid.
Patients with hooded eyelids should know that this treatment is not intended as a substitute for blepharoplasty surgery and is most beneficial for patients with mild complaints relating to a drooping brow. Patients with hooded eyelids or sagging eyelids may be more suitable for surgical blepharoplasty. Patients considering BOTOX should also select a highly trained and experienced cosmetic injector, as incorrect treatment may lead to the deterioration of droopy eyelids.
