Smile wrinkles (crow's feet) around the eyes
Smile Lines and Crows Feet
This is a typical area for people to notice the most bothersome of lines and wrinkles due to the thin and fragile skin of the eye area. Botox or Dysport would help to soften these, while maintaining a natural look. Also be sure to wear sunscreen daily and reapply every 1.5 hours while outdoors. UV exposure really breaks down the collagen and elastin in the skin. Keep your UV protective sunglasses on, as well. Long term, you may want to think about a skin resurfacing laser to repair the tissue more permanently, since the Botox or Dysport is temporary.

Crow's Feet - Eye Wrinkles
Botox and Dysport are great treatments to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet. Results typically last 3 - 4 months. Hope to hear from you soon!

Crow's feet treatment
The treatment is performed by injecting small amount of product into the muscles around your eyes. Those muscles tug and pull on your skin when you smile, creating wrinkles. A Botox treatment works by weakening those muscles, which reduces the tugging and pulling on the skin. This effect helps smooth out the area and prevent wrinkles from forming.
The treatments work very well if done consistently (repeated every 3-4 months on average). They can look very natural in both men and women when injected correctly by a well-trained doctor.
Best of luck.
Botox, Xeomin or Dysport may be considered for reducing the appearance of dynamic crows feet.
