I had juvederm for the first time injected under my eyes to help fill in the wrinkles about 3 weeks ago. I was told that botox could not be put in this area, because it could cause droopy eye. I had really bad bruising but fortunately the bruising has gone away. What I do see now is minor bags which I can live with, but the wrinkles under my eyes look 10 times worst. I did go back yesterday and had the practitioner add a little bit of botox around the eye to see if this would help with the wrinkles. Is there anything else that you recommend? Are the bags is what is causing more defined wrinkles? Should I have the injections put in to remove some of the juvederm, in order to improve wrinkles/bags or could that possibly make it look worst? The bags are minor, but was curious to how long they last? I did this to help improve the wrinkles under the eyes and it has made them look worst. I wish I had never done this. Please let me know what you think. Thank you for your advice!
It is impossible for me to tell you what you should do without seeing you and examining you. Juvederm or Restylane can be used to “fill in” a sunken in area known as tear troughs. Botox or Dysport can be used for dynamic wrinkles – the ones that get worse with smiling. Chemical peels, lasers or blepharoplasty may be needed for actual loose skin or wrinkles. There are lots of options but they depend on your anatomy and skin type, etc. Also, any of these procedures are best when actually done properly. For example you may need a filler but only if the filler is injected properly will you see an improvement. I suggest you see a few other good plastic surgeons and be examined and see what they recommend. Dont do too much though as luckily the juvederm and botox will wear off on its own.
