Crow’s feet are the fine lines that form around the eyes and increase with age. They are primarily caused by sun exposure, but smoking can also increase their intensity.
Crow’s feet are most pronounced when you use the muscles around your eyes and their appearance is unavoidable when you smile, laugh or squint.
Getting injections for crows feet
Treatment for crow’s feet with Botox injections is very effective as the injection literally relaxes those muscles so they can’t contract. It works by blocking the chemical signal that travels from your nerves to your muscles. Though Botox treatments are very safe they can still result in complications if the injection serum spreads beyond the treatment area, so you should only receive injections from a certified healthcare professional like our dentists at Paramount Dental Sydney.
There are a few side effects that come with the procedure, including temporary bruising and headaches. While the bruising is rather common, the headaches are rare and should go away over the course of a couple of days. It is also important not to rub the treated area after an injection. Doing so may encourage the serum to seep into your eyelid muscles, causing them to droop.
Botox injections for the treatment of crow’s feet take just a few minutes and can easily be done during your lunch hour. Though it takes several days for the effects to be seen, they last about three to four months. Treatment for frown lines (officially known as glabellar lines) can also begiven at the same time as crow's feet (lateral canthal lines).
