I had botox for crow's feet, frown lines, and filler under eyes and around mouth now my wrinkles are more pronounced under my eyes
Every time I smile, the wrinkles all gather under my eyes and are much more pronounced. I never had wrinkles like this before, and I am not sure if it is because since getting the botox (which I had a few days ago, and a month after the fillers), that now the wrinkles under my eyes have no place to escape?? ps I had thermage a month ago as well...Please help me.

Sounds like too much Botox  March 16, 2011 10:14 AM

I would recommend going back to your injector and have him or her take a look at you. It is possible that there is something that can be done, like reducing the under eye fillers with enzyme. If it is too much Botox, there isn't much you can do except just let it dissipate over time. You should see improvement within a month if Botox is the culprit.
Good Luck.
