Crow’s feet are tiny creases at the corners of the eyes that radiate outwards, towards the temples. These are known as dynamic wrinkles and they tend to be most noticeable when the facial muscles are engaged. People develop crow’s feet after many years of smiling, laughing and making other facial expressions. These and other dynamic wrinkles are caused by a build-up of tension in the expressive muscles that manifests as fine lines and wrinkles across the visage. BOTOX® has the ability to instantly release these creases without impacting your ability to communicate emotions through facial movement.
How BOTOX® Releases Dynamic Wrinkles Around the Eyes
During a BOTOX® treatment, minute amounts of this solution are injected into the skin at the outer corners of the eyes. It is an FDA-approved purified solution that is designed to block nerve signals to the expressive muscles. Once nerve signals have been blocked, tension in the expressive muscles will be released and the surface skin will achieve a relaxed state. Within a matter of minutes, these injections can create a smooth, line-free and incredibly youthful-looking visage.
Why Choose BOTOX® for the Treatment of Crow’s Feet?
BOTOX® is the perfect anti-aging solution for people who are looking to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles without having to undergo invasive surgeries. This procedure does not entail any downtime. Best of all, it is only a temporary solution to problems like crow’s feet, frown lines and tiny creases around the lips. Thus, if you aren’t completely satisfied with the way that BOTOX® makes you look, you can simply wait for the effects to fade away.
Is BOTOX® the Best Anti-Aging Treatment for You?
BOTOX® is not meant for the treatment of severe facial wrinkling, sagging skin or age-related volume loss. Cosmetic issues such as these may be better resolved with injectable fillers or other, more invasive, anti-aging treatments.
During and After BOTOX® Treatment
Often referred to as the “lunchtime face lift,” BOTOX® treatments typically last less than 20 minutes. A small needle will be used to deliver the solution into the targeted areas. After your injections have been made, you can leave the office and can immediately resume your normal activities.
Injections can last between four and six months. After this time, the effects will wear off. The good news is that our provider can safely repeat these injections two to three times per year so that you can maintain a continuously youthful and line-free visage.
