Is Botox recommended for crow's feet?

Is Botox recommended for crows feet, submitted image.

I want a more permanent solution than a regular filler, and I read that Botox has been legally approved for this type of issue.

Yes, absolutely. However, like filler, Botox is not permanent. Most patients require a repeat dose between 3-4 months. Other neuromodulators like Dysport and Xeomin are also great options in this area.

Botox is not permanent, and fillers are rarely used in spots that have thin skin (like around the eye and crow's feet).  Botox for crow's feet will last 3-4 months in my experience.  There are no permanent injectable medications approved by the FDA for wrinkles.

Botox is splendid for prevention of crow's feet, and effacement of fine furrows. It's a temporary fix and needs maintenance. Fillers fill in static furrows that are there when you don't smile and work great for 9 months or so. A more permanent measure might include fat grafting, blepharoplasty, or both! Even after, you'd still need maintenance Botox.

Yes, but like filler, Botox is not permanent. Botox lasts 3-4 months. Other neurotoxins like Dysport and Xeomin work the same and can be used for Crow's feet as well.
