As a person gets older, they are going to notice that their skin is not as smooth as it used to be. They will see fine lines, wrinkles, and eventually deep folds that cause their skin to look older. One of the biggest complaints that people have is that they are experiencing crow’s feet. You may be experiencing these as well. If so, BOTOX® may be able to help you.
So, what are crow’s feet? They are the lines that you see at the outer corners of your eyes. These happen because the muscles around your eyes contract, which causes the skin on top of them to form creases and lines.
When young individuals smile, they may also experience these creases around the outer corners of their eyes. However, because they are young and the condition of their skin is so healthy, their skin just bounces back to normal as soon as they are finished smiling or squinting. As you get older and you make these expressions thousands of times throughout your lifetime and as your skin changes as you get older, these creases become more apparent.
BOTOX® is one of the best ways that you can address crow’s feet. First, the procedure is extremely simple. You need to come in for an initial consultation. This consultation will allow us to ask you questions about your health and about your goals. Once it is determined that BOTOX® is the best option for addressing your crow’s feet, a treatment session can be planned.
During the actual treatment session, the BOTOX® solution will be skillfully injected into preselected areas. In the days after your treatment, you are going to see that the skin around your outer eyes is much more relaxed. As such, you are going to look a lot younger. You can still make normal facial expressions; you just won’t have the same amount of wrinkling as before.
If you have crow’s feet or other dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® is a great treatment option to help you look younger.
