I am a woman in my mid-50s living in Staten Island in Richmond County, New York. Over my natural aging process I have more or less developed wrinkled areas over my entire face. Would Botox be the safest and most effective treatment to return my face to a revitalized and younger-looking appearance?


Generally we don’t use filler for crow’s feet but Botox or Dysport, which last 3-6 months. For marionette line, a filler such as Juvederm or Restylane will lend a nice result. These fillers can last anywhere from 6-12 months.

When a person has wrinkles in the upper facial areas such as on their forehead, lines between their brows or crow’s feet Botox is extremely effective in treating these areas safely.

However, if there is the need for volume restoration or you have deeper folds and creases, fillers are best suited for rejuvenation. After speaking with your doctor regarding your facial restoration, he/she can recommend, depending on the location on your face, the most effective treatment for these areas.
