Botox® injections work by introducing a small amount of
muscle-relaxing solution underneath the layers of the skin,
into individual muscles. The solution prevents the muscles
from contracting and making unnecessary facial expressions
(the cause of wrinkles).
These repairing injections do not change the way you look
and they do not interfere with your facial expressions. They
just soften the areas of concern and make you appear younger and more refreshed.
injections have been used for medical purposes for more than
30 years now. During this time they have become extremely safe, both from the point of view of the anti wrinkle solution that is used and from the point of view of the procedure.
Crow’s Feet / smile lines / eye wrinkles occur when a person smiles, using the outside part of their orbicularis oculi muscle. Over time, these lines etch in permanently and are there even when the person is not smiling
Treatment of Crow's Feet
The most superior treatment for Crow’s Feet is anti-wrinkle injections. A small injection using a very fine needle is performed to the outside of the eye muscle where the lines are located on smiling. Somewhere between 2-7 injections on each side will be performed.
The doctor will examine your face and crow’s feet. In particular, she will look at many features, such as: Where the lines are, whether there is any lid droop or asymmetry, whether there is a bulge in the lower lid, how much the crow’s feet extend down the side of the cheek and under the eyes.
