Botox for the eyes and eyebrows

Dermatol Clin. 2004 Apr;22(2):145-9, vi. doi: 10.1016/j.det.2004.02.001.


The forehead and crow's-feet (periorbital wrinkles) are among areas where Botox has been quite helpful. This cosmetic use is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is considered off-label. The effect, although temporary, is extremely popular with patients, has a very low incidence of side effects, and is a relatively easy technique to acquire.
