Not only are crow’s feet a common sign of the normal aging process, but they’re also indicative of a life that has been well-lived. That’s because having crow’s feet often means that you smile and laugh a lot. These are fine lines at the eyes that radiate outwards towards the temple. They tend to become deeper and more apparent each time your expressive muscles are engaged. While commonly associated with happiness and a generally upbeat disposition, these creases can make a person look a lot older than their age. The good news is that crow’s feet can be released with BOTOX®. BOTOX® is an FDA-approved solution that has the power to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes as well as at the brow and around the lips.
How BOTOX® Makes Crow’s Feet Disappear
This treatment eliminates crow’s feet by relaxing the tension that has built up in the underlying expressive muscles. This purified, FDA-approved protein solution is designed to temporarily block the nerve signals that control the expressive muscles. As the expressive muscles achieve a relaxed state, tiny creases at the surface of the skin will be released. Best of all, by only using a very minute amount of the solution to achieve the desired effects, our provider can preserve your ability to continue making a broad range of facial expressions.
What to Expect During and After Treatment
The BOTOX® treatment is relatively straightforward. During the treatment session, the solution is skillfully injected into the area(s) to be treated. There is virtually no downtime with BOTOX® and, thus, you can instantly resume most all of your regular activities.
You may notice an instant decrease in the appearance of crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles across the visage. It usually takes a full week, however, for the total effects of the BOTOX® solution to manifest.
A Temporary Solution to Dynamic Wrinkles
BOTOX® is not designed to serve as a permanent solution to fine lines and wrinkles. Within about four months or so, full nerve functionality will be restored. As the targeted expressive muscles regain their activity, muscle tension can accumulate once more and dynamic wrinkles are likely to reappear. The good news is that we can repeat your injections multiple times per year so that you can maintain a smooth and line-free appearance.
