Impact on the patient
Many patients like to have some Crow's feet because it makes them look natural; it makes it look very authentic when they smile. On the other hand, if the Crow's feet become very deep or long, it can be distracting, because it makes them look older.
How to treat them?
The standard treatment option and the most effective treatment option for Crow's feet is a treatment with a medication called botulinum. You may have heard of the brands: Botox, Xeomin or Dysport.
