Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Removal of wrinkles around the eyes such as crow's feet at the outer corner of the eye can be done by giving injections of Botulinum in divided doses.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

It is done by cosmetologists usually. Ophthalmic indications for these injections is restricted more towards the treatment of severe essential blepahrospasm.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Botulinum injection is given at multiple sites in calculated divided doses into the muscles whcih are responsible for the lines. Usually the effect of these injections can last anywhere between 4-6 months. Like any other procedure it also can have its complications such as damage to the muscle into which it is injected( the effect is temporary though). Contraindications for its use includes neuromuscular diseases, myasthenia gravis. For more details you can visit a cosmetologist who is into giving these injections( Botox).
