Botox or fillers for eye wrinkles
If you decide to go with the Botox to soften Crow’s feet, our practice usually tells clients that full treatment to that area is 10 units per each side. Botox will not be able to be placed directly under your eye to treat those wrinkles, however fillers or microneedling would be great options to help with those. Filler can be utilized to enhance/build up the cheeks and thus smooth out fine lines caused by sagging skin. As our skin ages, it usually falls downward and filler can build that area back up, smoothing out the skin. Microneedling is another great option to get rid of small lines if you prefer not to try fillers. This procedure is a great, non-invasive treatment that can decrease fine lines, wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture/tone, and brightness.

Botox for crow's feet
Botox is a great way to start softening the crows feet area. It is not so helpful for directly underneath the eye area. For underneath the eyes you may benefit from a combination of laser resurfacing and platelet rich plasma injections to address that area. You also have some hollowing in the tear trough area and dependent on clinical examination you may benefit having dermal filler treatment to correct this. No one treatment will give you the best results, combination is the key.

Combination treatment for periorbital (around the eye) wrinkles
I am a big proponent of combination treatment when it comes to periorbital rejuvenation. In your case, the photos demonstrate crow's feet due to contraction of the orbiculares oculi muscle. Importantly, the photos also show significant volume loss at the tear trough and along the lower aspect of the eye. Were you my patient, I would probably recommend some combination of the following:
- Botox injection for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles
- Belotero or Restylane injection for tear trough and undereye volume loss
- Nonablative laser resurfacing (Fraxel) or microneedling to increase collagen production
- Topical skincare products including sunscreen and a retinol

Botox would give you the most immediate effect. If you would like to add filler at a later time you certainly can do so. Under the eyes I highly suggest have the "cannula technique" performed as opposed to the standard needle technique. It produces less or no bruising, even results and is very "ouchless."
