Botox For Crow’s Feet: Does It Help

Do the wrinkles at the edge of your eyes, which appear like a crow’s foot, bother you?

Botox is a widely accepted procedure to get rid of these wrinkles.

It is a safe and effective treatment for men and women of all ages.

However, many are worried about the unnatural-looking or frozen face after getting a Botox.

We get your concerns:

Facial expressions are the key to connection and communication with others.

Getting a Botox by an expert who understands the facial anatomy and aesthetics can help you get the desired natural-looking results.

What Are Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet are wrinkles at the edges of your eyes, also called laughing lines, extending out in a fan-like pattern.

While these lines accentuate your smiles and laughs, they are also an indicator of aging.

As you age, your skin loses its natural elasticity inherent to youthful skin. When you’re young, the skin stretches like rubber and moves with the facial muscles.

However, the collagen declines gradually, reducing the elasticity and stretching ability of the skin.

Excess sun exposure and smoking also increase the risk of crow’s feet.

How Does Botox work?

Botox is a muscle-relaxing procedure that smoothens out wrinkles to give you a fresh and rejuvenated look.

The injections relax the muscles around your eyes, smoothing out the skin. This effect is more appreciated when you laugh.

What to Expect?

Your provider will recommend a topical anesthetic to make the area numb. Later, they will initiate the procedure to cover the wrinkles.

It’s a relatively short procedure and takes only a few minutes.

Other procedures such as laser treatments may be combined with Botox based on your cosmetic goals.

Usually, a total of 10 units of Botox suffices for both eyes. In some cases, 24 units may be needed.

Will It Help You?

If you have laugh lines, don’t smoke, or don’t have major health conditions, Botox can help you.

It may take about three days for noticeable results. And, the results last for three to four months. You may need to take follow-up injections every few months to maintain the results.
