1 week post op. I just got 20 units of botox around my eyes & crows feet, I don't see a difference yet. Is this normal?

Wait a little longer
Day 1 - injection
Day 14- maximal weakening of muscles minimizing movement (ie. can't frown)
2 months - now that muscles aren't moving, lines that were present are slowly softening.
3 months - get your next treatment to keep those muscles weak
If you have lines at rest with no movement, I recommend 4 treatments over 1 year. At that point, if you still have a furrow or line, get this injected with Belotero.

No effect from Botox around crow's feet - either not enough time, they aren't treatable with Botox, or you need more.
Botox for crows feet
Crows feet lines come from elevation of the cheek as well as the muscles around the eyes. Botox only helps reduce the wrinkling from the muscles around the eyes, so there can still be some wrinkling in this area even after Botox.
Botox for Crow's Feet
Botox is ideal for the fine lines around the eyes, better known as crow's feet. It should take the same amount of time as your forehead wrinkles. If you do not see any effect in two weeks I would return to your treating physician for evaluation.
