Botox treatments can help reduce the signs of wrinkles and lines around tired eyes, a cosmetic dermatologist has claimed.
The treatment can be used to stop the development of wrinkles around the edges of the eyes, leaving a smooth and youthful looking surface.
Lines around the eyes are caused by a number of factors including stress, lack of sleep, smoking and, most commonly, the natural ageing process, but cosmetic procedures such as Botox can help keep wrinkles at bay.
Australian cosmetic dermatologist Professor Greg Goodman from the Dermatology Institute of Victoria stated that the appearance of bags and puffiness around the eyes are caused by the expansion of the pads that cushion the eyes in the socket.
Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, Professor Goodman said: "As you get tireder and tireder the muscle tone sags a bit and the secondary defence, that muscle tone that keeps the eye pads back if the wall is weak, then that will show more."
Reports have suggested that a number of celebrities have opted to try Botox, including Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Kim Cattrall and Simon Cowell.
