Aesthetic medicine can treat crow’s feet wrinkles with botulinum toxin or ‘botox’ injections, and less often with hyaluronic acid injections.
Different degrees of wrinkle severity are shown on scales.

Erasing crow’s feet wrinkles with Botox injections
The eyelid orbicular muscle is responsible for the occurrence of these wrinkles. When it contracts, the skin follows, leading to dynamic (movement) wrinkles, followed by static or ‘at rest’ wrinkles caused by the gradual breaking down of the skin’s elasticity as it follows the muscle.
Injections of botulinum toxin allow us to reduce the eyelid orbicular muscle’s hyperactivity.
Indications, side effects and result of botox for crow’s feet wrinkles?
Botox is the suitable solution as soon as crow’s feet wrinkles (whether static or dynamic) start to be a problem for the individual.
There are no side effects.
The practitioner must have mastered the technique. A faulty technique can lead to a drooping labial commissure, salivary incontinence, and problems keeping food and drink in the mouth.
It will result in the disappearance of dynamic wrinkles, and improvement to static lines. The eye area will be opened up, and the eyebrow tail lifted.
Wrinkle filling using hyaluronic acid injections
Hyaluronic acid isn’t greatly useful in this instance. It is only recommended when there has been a fall in underlying fatty deposits, where the acid can provide support to the outer corner of the eye.
