The best way to combat crows feet?

Are there any good lotions out there to help, or is surgery/Botox the best way to fight crows feet around my eyes?  In addition I have large bags under my eyes, can Botox help with this as well?

Hi BarbieGrl4,

There are many different non-invasive under eye bag treatments.  

Botox can minimize the muscle contractions that lead to visible wrinkles associated with facial expressions (helping crows feet), and results last for three to four months until the muscle movement gradually returns. Minimizing muscle movement in the upper third of the face can have a profound anti-aging effect on the eye area, and can also help prevent visible wrinkles when the face is at rest.

Botox is one of the best ways to attack those pesky crows feet, but there are a few topical lotions out there, like SkinMedica's TNS Essential Serum that have some beautiful results. Finally, preventing crows feet from worsening is aided by adequate sunscreen use, avoiding smoking, getting quality sleep, and drinking plenty of water. Best of luck to you!
