I am considering (highly, highly considering) getting botox injections for my developing crows feet.
If you’ve had botox in the past (and feel comfortable sharing) I am curious what type of filler you used, how many units, how much was the cost per syringe, where do you live, what was your experience like, is it worth it!?
Pretty much just looking for all the details!

Haven’t had botox for crows feet as I don’t need it, but have had under eye filler. 100% worth it! Going to get it for my fiance for his upcoming birthday too. It was Restylane filler. Have tried something similiar to botox (I forget what it’s called but my doctor said it’s effectiveness speed rate was better) between my eyebrows and forehead and that was also a great experience! At first it was weird not being able to move your forehead (well you still can just not as many muscles) but then you get used to it and all the thin lines melt away. I tried that one once a few years back. I’m also thinking of going back before the wedding. I’m in Canada and it was between $300-400 per treatment area. I went to one of our best clinics in town.. make sure you do your research and read all the reviews! The number of syringes for botox depends on how many nerves they want to paralyze (I’ve found this treatment has a flat rate) and the number of syringes for filler depends on how much of it you need to fill in the affected area (altho after the initial payment, my doctor did free touchups with extra filler about a month after the initial injections). I was scared the first time I went in but my under eye circles were so bad from having 2 jobs and not sleeping for years that I knew I just needed to suck it up and try it.

Lurker bee but decided to finally make an account! I’m 27 and just started Botox this year. 10000% worth it to me. On my last injections I switched to Dysport and it seems to be working better (the formula is thinner so you get more coverage, just make sure you have a skilled injector so you do not end up with eyebrow droop if you do your forehead). I have very strong forehead muscles and have had lines for years and always hated them. It gives me just enough to “lift” my forehead, smooth the lines out and honestly I look so much more refreshed. It’s amazing what a difference it is! I’ll never go back to not doing it! It’s simple, quick and the results are wonderful! Best of luck!

Was it dysport or xeomin? I’m interested in this for between the brows too. Did your doctor just do injections between the brows and no where else?

I’ve been getting botox/dysport for around 3 years now and I love it. I was starting to notice a line in between my eyebrows and although it wasn’t very noticeable to others it was the first thing I would see when I looked in the mirror. I get it done every 4-6 months. I get it done in my forehead and in the crows feet area for preventative reasons.
I live in Canada and it usually costs between 300-400 dollars. Botox and dysport are charged by the unit, not syringe. The price will greatly vary per person depending on how strong the muscles are, how prominent the lines are and how many areas you need treated.
I find it to be pretty painless and I absolutely love the results. I have never experienced any bad results but it can happen so do your research before you go see someone.

I’ve had botox for my crows feet and I’ll 100% keep doing it. It actually helped the wrinkles under my eyes too because the muscles at the side of the eye no longer pulls on the skin under the eye. I’m in Canada and it was around $300.

I just looked it up and I guess it was Xeomin that I had. I remember he said it has one ingredient and no additivies. I got between my eyebrows and forehead injected. Works amazing.

A couple of my friends get Botox, and I have been considering it for a while. The only reason I haven’t gotten it is because my doc (who does my lips) says that it only lasts 3-5 months, and I simply don’t have the means to be getting it that often! From what I understand it’s about $300 for an average amount. But if you can swing it then definitely go for it! The results, if done modestly, really look amazing!

Thanks for sharing everyone. I am convinced!
I will likely be going to my dermatologist’s office to get my fillers

I’ve done it for forehead and eyes and I absolutely love it! I did it for lines but omg it completely stopped me from getting headaches! Since getting pregnant and breastfeeding I haven’t been able to do it for awhile and the headaches are back full force (lines too). My experience was that the longer you do it the less you need to do it. I was able to keep the effects for about 6 months at a time. I pay about $450 in NYC but I have it done by a neurologist (because I’m paranoid). Going tomorrow for my first time back – so excited!

You can for sure streatch out your botox treatments 6-8 months if you’re trying to be conservative. For under eye dark circle fillers those can last years or less, it all depends on how fast your body processes hyaluronic acid. Mine lasted almost 6 years. This year I’m starting to see a tiny bit of caving again but nothing like it was when I first when in to get the treatment done.

Love, love, love. Have been doing Botox for years. It lasts me about six months, which, at my advanced age is miraculous. I take 33 units which costs $380 at my cosmetic surgeon’s. Though he charges by area, rather than by unit. From prior experience, I know it’s 33. Money well spent.
I will not let anyone other than a board certified cosmetic surgeon do my injections. No exceptions. Fortunately, I have one I adore so I’m golden until he retires.
Also, keep in mind it takes several days to see the full effect. Although I always see some difference right away. So, if you have a special occasion coming up, be sure to allow a week or two.
And, whatever you do, don’t lie down right after Botox! It’s appalling how few doctors tell you that.

I am going to schedule a consultation when I’m back from vacation for my 11s.

Aw, I love how crow’s feet look….. smile lines IMO.
I definitely would consider Botox for the faint (for now) line between my eyebrows though. I don’t want to eventually have a perma-scowly face.

My doctor did tell me, and my friend who went with me not to lie down, not to workout, and not to consume alcohol for at least 4 hours afterward.
I have had botox done in my forehead and will continue to do so.
1. Type of filler: botox is not a filler, and I have never had a filler treatment.
2. How many units: 17.5
3. How much per unit: 15
4. Where do you live? NYC, but I had my botox in Fairfield County in Connecticut
5. What was my experience like? Great, it was quick, the doctor was knowledgeable and explained all the steps and rationale for where she injected.
6. I loved the results and plan to continue with my forehead. Undecided on whether I’ll do crows feet. Don’t need my crows feet done currently.
