What Can Botox Do?
Crow’s feet are naturally occurring wrinkles that appear on the outer corners of eyes after years of smiling, squinting, and sun exposure. They also happen to be one of the signs of aging that bother people the most but are easily reversible. They appear because of repetitive movement and when the skin quality diminishes. Eventually, those lines etch deep into your face and are there even when you are not smiling or squinting. Some surgical procedures are designed to help get rid of wrinkles on your face.
However, when a person is only dealing with dynamic lines, such as crow’s feet, surgery may not be necessary. Often, a simple BOTOX treatment is all that is needed to minimize the appearance.
I received Botox for the first time from Dr. Ramirez and it was such a great experience! I have a fear of needles so I was a bit hesitant to begin Botox treatments but they made me feel incredibly calm and the procedure was a breeze. I love the way that my skin looks and will be going back to their office for future procedures. In fact – I already have an appointment to review the different lasers they have available. I’d recommend he and his office to anyone interested in aging gracefully. 🙂
