Could Botox/Dysport for crow’s feet make my eyes look worse?

I recently went to a different provider and let them talk me into doing crow's feet. Omg!!! The worst mistake! It is day 4 and my cheeks seem lower. My eyes don't look nearly as open as they normally do after Botox. Im scared to see me over the next few days! Is this normal?? Will it get better?

It all depends on how the Botox/Dysport was done, how much was done and what is causing your crow’s feet!

Using Botox/Dysport if you’re under 40

If you’re under 40, if the right amount of fillert is injected, it will make the eyes look more open and more relaxed and lines less obvious.

Using Botox/Dysport if you are over 40

If you are over 40, crow’s feet are often linked to loss of volume in the supporting fat pads and skin underneath the crow’s feet and around the eyes in general. Also it can be due to sun damage that damages the collagen and elastic fibers there.

It’s important to really analyze what the problem actually is. And THEN, it’s always possible that the filler was injected too low, too much, caused an eyebrow droop etc.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
