Can Botox be used for crowsfeet

Yes! Botox is considered the gold standard when it comes to treating lines of facial expression, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. The crow’s feet are caused by dynamic muscle movement around the eye, so reducing that movement with Botox has a great effect in smoothing the wrinkles while still leaving patients with a natural looking result.

BOTOX Is Excellent for Crow's Feet

BOTOX injections produce excellent results for patients who want to reduce the appearance of crow's feet, the fine lines that emerge at the corners of the eyes as we age. The FDA approved BOTOX for the treatment of crow's feet in 2013, and it had been previously used as an off-label treatment for that purpose for years. Crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and the vertical "worry lines" between the eyes are all dynamic wrinkles, meaning they are caused by the repeated movements of facial muscles over the years. They are best treated with BOTOX, which temporarily limits those muscle movements. Thanks for your question.

Botox Injections

Botox works by temporarily softening and weakening the muscles in the area. One can reshape the eyebrows; soften the wrinkles
around the crow’s feet, and glabella area including that of the lower face. Botox will last about 3-4 months. This should be done in the hands of a Board Certified Plastic surgeon or Dermatologist with significant Expertise in injecting Botox in the right places to get optimal results.

Botox for Crow's Feet

Botox is a very popular cosmetic intervention. Botox works to prevent facial lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. Technique is critical, and must be tailored to the individual patient. Botox is effective in the upper ⅓ of the face: the “crow’s feet” around the eyes, forehead lines, and the vertical furrows between the eyebrows.

Hope this is helpful. Best wishes.
