Botox for Crow's Feet

Because crow’s feet are caused by muscle movement, reducing muscle movement is the best way to diminish or (temporarily) banish them. Botox is an injectable wrinkle reducing toxin that weakens the muscles that cause crow’s feet to appear. If properly injected, Botox can make crow’s feet walk away for three to six months.

The typical dosage of Botox is 10 units per eye, though people with especially deep wrinkles may require up to 20 units per eye. Men typically need more Botox to dismiss crow’s feet than women.

Botox injections around the eyes can cause side effects. One of the most common is drooping eyelids or brows. This problem is temporary and should resolve itself in three to eight days.
