A bit about crow’s feet, Some people love them, and some people want rid of them.
What exactly are crow’s feet…on my face?
Crow’s feet refer to the tiny wrinkles etched beside the corner of your eyes, which appear when you’re happy, sad, annoyed or even deep thought. Crow’s feet can add character and be a beautiful addition to a face, so let’s not assume crow’s feet are a definite wantaway. Your eyes are often the first places to display the sign that we are ageing, as the skin is much thinner (40% less, and more gentle than other parts of your face). On top of this, they can often appear more noticeable, and deeper on your face and in your skin.
But how can I treat crow’s feet and my eye wrinkles? What about Botox ® in Brighton for crows feet?
The most common, traditional and a very successful way of treating crow’s feet is by administering (injecting) botulinum toxin. The most well-known brand of botulinum toxin is Botox ®, which you will no doubt be aware of. More about Botox ® in Brighton and what it is can be found in various blogs on this site.
How does Botox ® for crows feet work?
Botox ® temporarily relaxes muscles, and can be targeted to the area which is subject to creasing and wrinkling. With expert hands, Botox ® can be injected into the muscles around the eyes, causing the visual impact of crow’s feet to reduce, or disappear altogether. It is important to note that results must not be guaranteed, and expectations must be managed (most notably because we all react differently). At Azure Aesthetics Clinic, we always recommend an initial consultation to ensure that you are suitable, and understand the treatment, the benefits and the risks of any treatment you are interested in. Your practitioner will assess you, your face and your suitability for the treatment of crow’s feet, and if appropriate, will discuss the treatment options with you.
Is Botox ® permanent?
Botox ® is a temporary anti-wrinkle solution, which usually lasts approximately 3-4 months, and in some cases up to 6 months. The results of a Botox ® treatment are expected to start appearing within 2-5 days, depending on how your body responds to the treatment. These results will continue to improve for approximately 14 days, which is when you would expect to see the final results. We would recommend a review appointment after 14 days to ensure you are satisfied with your treatment.
Will Botox ® make me look frozen?
In the right hands, no, it should not. The frozen look, where expressions are almost non-existent, are caused by larger doses of Botox ® being injected into the desired muscles.
In what areas is Botox ® injected to treat crow’s feet/laughter and smile lines?
Botox ® is a very common product to be used to reduce or remove deep wrinkles, caused by ageing. Common areas where we treat patients include forehead and frown lines, neck bands, gummy smiles, the upper lip, jawline but also, it can be used for hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) and bruxism (teeth grinding).
What about Fillers? Which is better, Botox ® or fillers?
Botox ® in Brighton and fillers are two very different choices of product. Simply put, the products do different things. We use Botox ® to reduce the muscular activity that cause you wrinkles.
