I've had my first botox between my eyebrows- really pleased with the results. I'm thinking of having it on my crows feet. I have two questions: firstly, I've heard this can make lines under the eyes worse- does anyone have any experience of this?

Secondly, I can't afford to have it done on my crows feet as well every 3 months. If I had it done once a year, would there be any benefit- would it give my muscles "resting time"- or do the crows feet tend to come back worse once you've had it done?

Thanks very much. MJ

I have heard of this as well..but not sure what the scientif proof is.
My thinking is the muscles become less strong and the skin has less support structure and thus can sag...but I am by no means a scientist or doctor, just speculation.

Thanks Claude.

Crumbs - if the sag theory is correct, perhaps it's better not to have it done at all, rather than have it done once a year?

Dr, please could you share your views? We're working on intuition here, perhaps we need some hard science...

Thanks Claude for these links- and sorry, didn't mean to suggest you wouldn't understand the science- that's the difficulty with posting on forums- one never knows the background of other posters

People who have botox injections may develop new wrinkles because the Botox treatment can cause other nearby muscles to compensate, which in turn can create new wrinkles. Medical Aesthetics now working on an advanced technology Hello Notox which is safe, you can get the details from hellonotox.com

let me explain what i mean

first time i did botox, abt 6 mths later, i can feel my skin less tight again...

the 2nd time, i think i only feel the effects wearing off after 8 mths

then by 3rd time, abt 9 or 10 months

not sure if my skin is getting well with the botox
