Wrinkles around your eyes that are present in motion only are ideal for treatment with BOTOX.
If your Crow's feet (wrinkles around your eyes) are present at rest, they may not eliminated with a BOTOX injection.
If your Crow’s feet wrinkles extend toward your cheekbone, and if this increases with smiling, a BOTOX treatment may cause an incongruous appearance. This can create a “Mickey Mouse” appearance in which one may have a flat area around the eyes that is surrounded by extended lines around the mouth.
Hooding of the Side of the Brows (Lateral Brows)
Hooding of the Lateral Brows
If you have hooding of lateral brows which is usually from the loss of tone and descension of the lateral brow, the wrinkle under the hood will likely remain after a BOTOX injection treatment.
Other plastic surgery procedures, such as endoscopic brow lift or Laser resurfacing may be needed, and BOTOX may likely not remove this particular rhytid (wrinkle).
I recommend asking one of your Woodlands plastic surgeons if you are a good candidate for BOTOX treatment for your Crow's feet. Being an informed patient is critical prior to undergoing any treatment, even a minor procedure such as BOTOX.
