One of the things that really bothers people as they get older is crow’s feet. Crow’s feet are the lines that you see at the outer corners of your eyes whenever you squint or when you smile. Crow’s feet are what appear because you have made those expressions so many times and the quality of your skin has started to diminish. 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 wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, surgery may not be necessary. Often times, a simple BOTOX® treatment is all that is needed to minimize the appearance of these lines.
The reason why BOTOX® is so amazing when it comes to getting rid of crow’s feet is because it relaxes the muscles in this area. These are the muscles that contract so much or even stay contracted and cause the crow’s feet to appear. When these muscles are skillfully injected with BOTOX® and slowly start to relax, you are going to see that the skin on top of these muscles relaxes as well. This means that the wrinkles are going to gradually go away.
BOTOX® is extremely effective at treating crow’s feet, as well as other dynamic wrinkles on your face. If in addition to crow’s feet you see deep lines that appear on your forehead or in between your brows, we can also treat these with BOTOX®. Or if you have vertical lip lines, BOTOX® may be used to address them. Our goal is to help you to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance, and BOTOX® can help us do just that.
Something that has made BOTOX® extremely popular is the fact that it does not involve surgery. This makes people feel comfortable trying it for the first time. And although the results typically last for about four months or so, the treatments can be repeated multiple times per year in the comfort of our office for ongoing benefits.
