Though our practice treats eye conditions, we can also enhance the aesthetics of your eyes by smoothing the wrinkles around them.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax the muscles to smooth the skin around your eyes for a more youthful appearance.
Monterey County Eye Associates offer BOTOX treatments to help Monterey, CA, patients reverse facial signs of aging.
Smooth Skin Around the Eyes With BOTOX Cosmetic
While BOTOX can treat certain medical conditions, our Monterey offices use BOTOX Cosmetic for facial enhancement purposes. We can use BOTOX Cosmetic to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles by temporarily relaxing facial muscles. BOTOX is a type of botulinum toxin that relaxes muscle movement and is not a permanent cosmetic procedure. Though BOTOX can be used in areas across the face, we primarily inject BOTOX Cosmetic into the eye area for our patients.
Awaken Your Appearance Benefits of BOTOX
BOTOX is a non-invasive procedure that is virtually painless, thanks to a topical anesthetic applied before the injections. Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is no recovery time, but you may experience mild symptoms after your treatment. To avoid excessive swelling and bruising, refrain from strenuous activity for about 24 hours, but you can return to non-strenuous activities immediately after your appointment.
The botulinum toxin procedure itself only takes about 10 minutes, though treatment times depend on the location and the number of injection sites. We primarily perform BOTOX injections around the eye area, which can often be completed in a short period of time.
You don't have to wait long to see the results of the botulinum toxin. Effects are noticeable in as little as 24 to 48 hours after your appointment. The full extent of your results will be visible within 30 days and the results last around four to six months. BOTOX is not a permanent treatment, but you can receive touch-up treatments at regular intervals.
Improve the Look and Health of Your Eyes Request a Consultation
Our optometry team is trained in administering BOTOX Cosmetic carefully to the area surrounding the eyes. You may feel younger after undergoing a corrective eye procedure with us, and with the help of products that contain botulinum toxin, you can look younger too. You simply have to request a consultation at one of our Monterey eye care offices.
Monterey, CA, Patients Appreciate Our Welcoming Office
Highly recommend Dr Caputo if you need your vision checked for glasses. Both my husband and I have seen her, & we've been extremely pleased with the quality of medical care she provides. She also has a great "bedside manner."View on Google
Dr Dautremont and her staff were amazing. I get really nervous in general and even more so in public places but she was very understanding. She had a few students helping her and you could tell they’re going to be just as good as Dr Dautremont.View on Google
Candidates for BOTOX
Young adults may wish to begin BOTOX before wrinkles appear to prevent them from forming in the future. The FDA requires patients to be at least 18 years old to receive BOTOX injections.
In Good Health
Before receiving BOTOX injections, you should be in good health to help ensure your skin will heal properly after BOTOX. The skin around the eyes should be free of infection and open wounds.
Have Realistic Expectations
Patients must have realistic expectations for the results. BOTOX will not dramatically change the structure of your face like some cosmetic surgery procedures. It is a temporary procedure that will smooth your skin for up to six months.
The FDA considers BOTOX to be a Category C drug during pregnancy. Not enough research has been conducted to evaluate the effects of BOTOX when pregnant, so pregnant patients should wait before undergoing treatment to be safe.
Approved by the FDA Request a Consultation to Learn More
Though BOTOX was approved for certain medical conditions in 1989, BOTOX Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for cosmetic purposes. Our talented team is proud to offer this solution to patients who want to enhance the appearance of their eyes and achieve a more youthful aesthetic. Call to request a consultation at one of our Monterey offices and see what BOTOX can do for you.

BOTOX vs. Dysport and XEOMIN
Longest FDA Approval
BOTOX Cosmetic was the first botulinum toxin product to be approved by the FDA for the treatment of aesthetic concerns rather than medical conditions. BOTOX Cosmetic was approved in 2002, while Dysport was approved in 2009 and XEOMIN was approved in 2010.
BOTOX Cosmetic is reported to give patients the fastest results out of all three products. With BOTOX, effects can be seen as early as 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Dysport can take about two to four days and XEOMIN takes three to four.
Ideal Cosmetic Use
Patients often ask for BOTOX at our office to correct deeper, smaller wrinkles around the eyes, which BOTOX is ideal for treating. Dysport, on the other hand, is ideal for large areas, such as frown lines and forehead lines because the formula spreads faster.
