Crows Feet at a glance
Botox has been used for years now to eliminate wrinkles from the forehead and eliminate crows’ feet around the eyes. This treatment works to open the eye, widen the eyelid, smooth out the upper lid creases and halt the formation of crows’ feet. Using a small needle, Botox is injected directly into the affected area which causes the muscles there to relax and counteract this wrinkled appearance.
As you age, your skin undergoes continuing changes. Wrinkles around the eyes are caused by the repetitive muscle contractions we all make during facial expressions. Where these wrinkles are around the eyes, they are referred to as “crows’ feet”. There are two types of wrinkles; dynamic which appear during muscle contraction, while static ones are visible all the time.
The dermal fillers are injected directly into crows’ feet using a small needle. The different fillers available for use have slightly different components, with some being more permanent than others. Botox prevents the muscles from contracting, which can consequently reduce the appearance of wrinkles or may even cause them to disappear completely.
What to Expect During Treatment
Dermal fillers can be especially effective for static crows’ feet – the ones that appear constantly, even when the face is “at rest”. Botox, as a treatment, is best suited for people aged 30–50 whose wrinkles are just beginning to develop. Do note, however, that it is not effective on the deep wrinkles common among the older adult. Note that Botox will not prevent you from making facial expressions as it only targets those muscles around the eyes that are causing crows’ feet.
