By now, you probably know that Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging injections available today. It’s for good reason: Botox still remains one of the most effective solutions for minimizing stubborn wrinkles and frown lines, especially those located on the forehead.
But did you know that Botox can also be used to smooth away crow’s feet?
If you’re nervous about getting injections near your eyes, read on to learn how it works and why Botox is a powerful solution for eye wrinkles.
Can I Get Botox Near My Eyes?
From its inception, Botox was designed to safely and effectively treat crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. These wrinkles – which often form due to repetitive facial movements like frowning and smiling – can be notoriously difficult to treat with other non-surgical procedures; hence why Botox still remains the go-to treatment for crow’s feet.
That being said, it’s still important to have your Botox procedure performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Botox is safe, but the placement of the injections really makes a difference in terms of promoting your best results. Having a medical professional perform your Botox injections ensures that your health – and results! – won’t be put at risk.

How Much Does Botox Cost for Eyes?
Botox cost for eyes can vary depending on the patient; however, it’s estimated that it takes about ten units per eye to effectively treat crow’s feet. Given that a unit of Botox averages about $14, patients can expect to spend an average of $250 per Botox treatment around the eyes, or more if additional areas of the face are treated.
The best way to find out how much your Botox treatment for eyes may cost is to schedule a consultation.
What Are the Side Effects of Botox?
The side effects of Botox are minimal, but they can include minor swelling and bruising at the treatment site. Your skin may also feel slightly tender to the touch. These side effects usually fade within the first week after treatment.
