Anyone had this area done? Is it more 'obvious' than no 11's?

what you ought to do ( assume you haven't already!!) is go to a good cosmetic dr or surgeon ( not a dentist or beautician) who knows their stuff.

There are loads of ways of filling lines with Restylane, Perlane, and other fillers and they will advise you.

Except that it would be monumentally stupid to fill in crow's feet lines when there is Botox in the world.

Botox works perfectly for crow's feet, to answer OP's question. And it is not obvious at all, from what I've seen.

are you mad? I think Crow's feet are well sexy.

I've had my no 11's done and was pleased with the results - though mostly unseen under my fringe.
When I was at clinic doc asked which areas and I said No 11. he said - are you not bothered with your lines round your eyes. I said no - but now I'm thinking mmmm. maybe I AM bothered by them!

My botox doctor said it doesen't always work that well for crows feet. I didn't push him further, but wither way, he says I'm not ready for work in that area yet anyway!

Sorry, shocking typos there, due to a lack of morning coffee!

I'm thinking about it, amelia. I have talked to two doctors and several friends who have had both fillers and Botox.

Why, does it matter how I know that you are wrong?

Fillers are not for lines that only appear when you smile or frown. If used on crow's feet on the sides of your eyes, it will look like you have worms under your skin when you are not smiling. For these lines, you use Botox, which prevents the wrinkles from happening in the first place.

Also, I would avoid fillers if possible, because it is apparently quite painful and often causes some very unsightly bruising that can last weeks.
