There are two types of hooded eyes, those you are born with and those you acquire with aging. Although cosmetic surgery is always an option, there are two non-surgical options as well.
Botox can also provide a small lift. With this technique, Botox is injected into the crow’s feet area, the tail of the eyebrow, and the glabella region. Injecting Botox in these specific muscles softens the downward pull and paralyzes the depressor muscle responsible for the eyebrow drooping.
This particular Botox treatment is ideal for patients who are reluctant to have surgery such as blepharoplasty to remove excess skin.
Botox will generally last between 3-4 months and the eyes will return to its original state.
If you have extremely hooded eyes with excess skin, Botox will only give a conservative lift. Cosmetic surgery on the other hand such as Blepharoplasty or a Forehead Lift, will be a more suitable option as results are more dramatic and permanent.
