I am a 37-year-old female and would like to try Botox injections for my crow’s feet and my smile lines. Just curious as to what if any risks are there? And also, typically how long do the effects of the injections last?
The most common risk of botulinum toxin (Botox, Dysport or Xeomin) is headache, about 5%. In the crow’s foot area on rare occasion you can get some drooping of the eyelid, but I have never seen it. I do not use botulinum toxin around the mouth for smile lines. Those are better treated with a filler.
