There they are again, crow’s feet. No matter what cream, concealer, or gel you use, they still show up in every picture and selfie, especially when you smile. Fortunately, Botox injections work miracles for crow’s feet, but how long will my Botox last around my crow’s feet? 

Wait, What Exactly Are Crow’s Feet? 

Crow’s feet are those annoying little lines and wrinkles that fan out from the corners of your eyes. They really show up when you squint or smile, bummer! 

Talk to Me About Botox! 

Botox is a wonderful injectable that uses a special toxin derived for the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The word “toxin” sounds scary, but Botox is actually one of the safest cosmetic procedures out there.  

How Does Botox Work, Anyway? 

You make a lot of deep expressions without realizing. For instance, you may be furrowing your eyebrows or squinting as you read this. Your wrinkles get worse the more you make these kinds of expressions. Botox works by blocking the signal from your nerves to your muscles that allow you to make deep expressions. This relaxes the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin. 

Is There Any Downtime? 

The procedure is quick and there is no downtime. You can return to most of your normal activities right after your treatment is done. Just avoid alcohol and strenuous activity for at least 24 hours. 

Great! How Long Will Botox Last Around My Crow’s Feet? 

You can expect the effects of Botox to last about four months. Your body is excellent at repairing itself. Eventually, your muscles restore communication with your nerves, and you can make deeper expressions once again. Talk to your provider about setting up a schedule for Botox.
