Crow’s feet are the tiny wrinkles that form at the corner of the eyes. They stretch towards the temples and are the reason why many men and women opt to undergo cosmetic treatments like Botox.
Crow’s feet, also called dynamic wrinkles, are caused by the tension that builds up in the expressive muscles. These are the muscles responsible for facial expressions. As we age, tension builds at the surface of the skin due to repeated use of these muscles.
Botox is an FDA-approved, and powerful product that has the potential to smooth out crow’s feet by temporarily relaxing the expressive muscles.
With countless Hollywood and well-known personalities from all across the globe, getting Botox injections each year, there is no doubt that Botox is one of the best treatments for resolving facial wrinkles.
Botox to Treat Crow’s Feet
Botox, or botulinum toxin type A, is a great and effective non-surgical injectable cosmetic treatment to reduce the apparent lines and wrinkles and restore smooth skin on the forehead and around the eyes.
The results of Botox are visible within a few days of the treatment. While a decrease in wrinkles can be noticed within a few days, the complete result of the treatment can be seen in about one to two weeks.
Botox is a highly effective treatment that has been widely used to help people eliminate the early signs of aging and achieve a more youthful look. The areas treated display outstanding results immediately and they continue to improve over the course of a few days.
After a few months, you can return for repeat treatments to maintain your youthful allure for even longer.
Crow’s Feet – What Are They?
Crow’s feet are wrinkles that closely resemble the feet of crows. They develop along the corners of your eyes. They start small and slowly extend with time. In due time, these fine lines or wrinkles as we call it will begin to appear on other areas of the face, such as the cheeks and forehead.
Is Botox Safe?
Even though botox is considered a toxin, it is safe in small doses. That’s why it is important to work with a skilled plastic surgeon who has had experience performing the procedure. This is the most popular and safest cosmetic procedure when it comes to treating wrinkles and fine lines.
How Does it Work and How Long Does it Last?
This simple and hassle-free treatment is only minimally invasive and does not involve any tissue removal, cutting, or recovery time. A small amount of Botox injected in the affected area will help relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. It works by stopping the signals between the brain and facial muscles. It reduces the muscles’ ability to move and contract, thereby decreasing the signs of aging.
This is an ideal treatment for people who want to get rid of their wrinkles and fine lines, and obtain a healthier, younger-looking facial appearance.
Is the Botox Treatment Right for You
Botox is one of the most common cosmetic treatments and is highly effective in producing stunning results. If you are in good general health and have no significant allergies, you will make a good candidate for the procedure.
People who want to improve their facial aesthetic without having to undergo an invasive surgery that requires incisions will also make good candidates for the Botox treatment.
