Botox under the eye can open up the eye

You can have a little effect of opening up the eyes by injecting botox / dysport (Dr Young’s Bellevue Office) under the lower eyelid.  Usually 2-4 units can be injected 2-3 mm underneath the eyelashes under the eye.  This can have an effect of weakening the eye muscles around the eye to allow the eyelid margin to become lower.  The ultimate effect is to make the eyes look bigger.  This has been found especially true for Asian patients.  Also injecting laterally in the crows feet area, in the lateral part of the eye and in the area that is between the eye can also have a impact in opening the eye.
