I have slight under eye bags under my eyes with dark circles
and a few lines underneath however I am most concerned about my
bags because I want to treat them so the situation does not get worse (if possible) however my derm said instead of surgery he can give me small amounts of botox and it will help "tighten up" the eye area, I don't see how if botox relaxes the muscles?
Dr. Odorov what is your opinion on this subject :?:

Botox, in VERY tiny amounts can help treat wrinkles of the lower lids (not bags or bulging). However...be certain that who ever provides this sort of treatment does a "snap test" of your lower eyelid first. It takes only a few seconds to do. If your eye lids fail the snap test, and you get Botox in that area, you have a significant chance of developing a drooping lower eyelid.

Botox has value for motion wrinkles but not for sagging skin or under eye bags.

I would be curious as to why your doc thinks he can help bags under your eyes with Botox....that does not seem to make much sense.
