Injections for Crow's Feet
Botox and Dysport are FDA approved muscle weakening agents which can improve the appearance of wrinkles caused by muscular contraction, such as those at the corner of the eyes. The injections are almost painless, and are effective for 3-4 months (most of our patients are happy with 6 months between injections) (picture of crow's foot pre and post.)
Eye Lid Lift - Surgical

Eye Lid Lift - Non-Surgical

Filling in the gap which results from this descent can go a long way to hiding these bags. The procedure involves virtually painless injection of subcutaneous fillers like Restylane and Juvederm into the groove between the eyelid and the cheek, restoring the lost fullness.
