Crow’s feet are sometimes referred to as laugh lines or character lines and these are fine lines and tiny wrinkles clustered by the outer corners of a person’s eyes. They often say the creases around our eyes who that we have had a good life. Crow’s feet tend to develop as we age, typically beginning during the mid or late 30’s. They occur as both elastic and collagen decrease as these two proteins help with the skin’s elasticity. You have a higher chance of getting crow’s feet if you smile, frown, or squint a lot, smoke, are exposed to high pollution, or spend a lot of time out in the sun. Luckily, at DestinationSkin we are able to help correct crow’s through treatments and products.
Botox which is the trademark name for Botulinum Toxin works to paralyse the muscle causing the creases, reducing the range of movement. The FDA has approved the treatment after following a study of 833 adults had a dramatic reduction in crows feet post production.
Botox which is the trademark name for Botulinum Toxin literally relaxes the muscles so they can’t contract. It works by blocking the chemical signal that travels from your nerves to your muscles, telling them to function. If you think about a leather hand bag, the more you take it out and use it, the more creases you see forming. The same with your skin. If you prevent the muscles from constantly creasing at the side of your face, you will prolong deeper wrinkles forming. Botox is FDA approved to treat around the eye area, which is a beneficial as you are limited with treatments soo close to the eye area.
The benefit of Botox for treating crow’s feet is that it is a relatively quick treatment and can be done in a matter of minutes. To break it down, the procedure involves injecting the toxin into specific muscles around the eyes, or any other area which could be contributing to the lines. You will usually see full results in 2-3 weeks and the results will last 3 or 4 months.
