Botox® has become an extremely popular choice for people wanting a refreshed, youthful look. However, it is crucial to find a qualified person with experience and training to perform Botox® treatments, and ophthalmologists are some of the most experienced Botox® administrators. Ophthalmologists have been using Botox® to treat eyelid spasms, eye muscle disorders, and other eye conditions for more than 20 years.
Botox®, when injected into the eye muscles, helps reduce their movement and can effectively align the eyes. It can also help limit overactive blinking for eyelid spasms, which led to the realization that Botox® can be used cosmetically for softened wrinkles.
How does this relate to cosmetic Botox® treatments? Botox® relaxes the facial muscles that cause “dynamic wrinkles” that repetitive muscle movements can cause. Botox® can treat “l l” lines between the eyebrows, “crows’ feet,” or “smile lines” and the deep forehead lines caused by raised eyebrows. After numbing the area, Botox® is injected to limit the movement of targeted muscles and soften the lines. Ophthalmologists, like Dr. Charles Fetterman, have experience treating these complex muscles, giving them an edge over other Botox® administrators.
