Hi Tracy, thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer and the choice depends entirely on you. I believe these are both good treatments with there own advantages and disadvantages.

Botox will need to be repeated every 3 to 4 months, however, once the effects have taken hold the area of skin around the sides of the eyes will be smooth with or without animation.
A total of 3 to 6 Fraxel treatments may be required to smooth out Crow’s Feet and one would need to repeat a session or two every 6 to 8 months. The main disadvantage with this treatment is that when one smiles, the wrinkles will be noticeable.

The area under the lower eyelid will not be greatly improved with Botox and laser is the better choice.
