Wrinkles around the eyes, as well as dark circles below it, can give the upper face a tired, old appearance. Botox and juvederm are injectablesthat can be used to refresh your facial appearance. Botox is a neuromodulator, while juvederm is soft tissue filler. Each works in specific areas of the face, but both are helpful around the eye area. So let’s find out how botox and juvederm can rejuvenate your eyes.
How botox rejuvenates the eyes
Botox is very effective for smoothing out wrinkles at the corner of the eyes, which are commonly referred to as crow’s feet.Botox is injected into the muscles, and this has the effect of relaxing them. Consequently, the wrinkles around the eyes that form because of continuous muscle movement eventually soften, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
How juvederm rejuvenates the eyes
Juvederm is a dermal filler that is used to address the problem of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also assist with age-related volume loss in the face. Juvederm is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is present in the skin, and helps to seal in moisture and create fullness.
Juvederm can be used to improve the appearance of the hollow areas below the eyes (tear troughs).It can also volumize the cheek area. When volume is added to the cheeks and nearby selected areas, it creates a youthful contour between the eyes and the cheeks. As the product settles in, there will also be a noticeable improvement in the dark circles below the eyes.
