Botox® for Crows Feet
By using a full dose of Botox® the crows feet on this woman have been completely removed. Not everyone wants all the crows feet removed but in this age group it does provide a more youthful appearance.
Older women prefer to have some crows feet visible as this is a more natural look in the post 40 age group. We achieve this by using a smaller dose of Botox® targeted to specific muscles to allow some lines to remain but reducing the overall wrinkling when smiling.
