I’m getting married next year and I’m excited of course, but I also feel anxious about the many photos that will be taken because I don’t like the way I look in pictures. Specifically, when I smile, my eyes look very small and I also get a lot of wrinkles around my eyes. I’ve heard that Botox can improve this kind of thing, and I wonder if I should try it?

While smiling faces are considered to be more attractive, many people dislike certain changes that happen on their faces when they smile. These may be present at a young age or develop as one gets older. You’re experiencing the most common one, which is lines around the eyes, also known as “crow’s feet,” and a smaller appearance of the eyes.
Other things that people may notice when they smile include wrinkling of the nose, lines on the cheeks, an excessive show of the gums, a horizontal crease under the nose, and tense-looking bands on the neck. In most cases, these can be improved with injections of a product such as Botox or Dysport, where there is no downtime. Depending on one’s skin quality, other procedures such as dermal filler injections and laser-type treatments may also be used for additional improvement.
