WHAT ARE CROW’S FEET?

Crow’s feet are small wrinkles on the skin’s surface that appear on the corners of the eyes and at the temples. These wrinkles are dubbed crow’s feet because the lines resemble the claws of a bird. They are a sign of aging and can make you look older than your actual age. Fortunately, Botox® cosmetic injections can help prevent or reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.

WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF CROW’S FEET?

Crow’s feet are dynamic lines caused by repeated facial movements and expressions like laughing or smiling. As we age, our muscles contract and our skin forms wrinkles. Eventually, the lines are apparent even when you are not making facial expressions.

Another cause of crow’s feet is skin laxity. Young skin returns to its original form after being compressed or pulled during facial expressions, but as we age, the skin loses elasticity and can begin to sag and form wrinkles. The skin around our eyes is especially delicate and prone to the consequences of lifestyle choices like smoking, drinking, and sun damage. Improper skincare and poor health can play a role in the development of crow’s feet.

CAN BOTOX GET RID OF CROW’S FEET?

Yes, Botox is a safe and effective treatment option for crow’s feet. Botox for crow’s feet can produce a rejuvenated, youthful appearance by smoothing out lines and wrinkles. The injectable treatment is administered in an appropriate dose to treat lines formed due to facial expressions. Botox relaxes the muscles around the corner of the eye and temple and blocks nerve signals to limit contractions. Placement and precision are critical for natural and noticeable results. Working with a board-certified dermatologist ensures patients have a comfortable experience and natural results in the appropriate areas.

who is a candidate for botox for crow’s feet?

If you have crow’s feet around your eyes, you may be a good candidate for Botox. Many healthy men and women with noticeable lines and wrinkles at the corner of the eyes are good candidates for this treatment. You may not be a suitable candidate for Botox for crow’s feet if you:

 

  • Are in poor health
  • Have allergies or sensitivities
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have minimal visible lines around the eyes

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX FOR CROW’S FEET LAST?

Results vary, but many patients see visible results within one week that last for approximately 3-4 months. Botox for crow’s feet is not a permanent treatment. It requires regular maintenance for desired results. Your expert dermatologist can monitor your results and suggest an appropriate treatment schedule to meet your cosmetic beauty goals.

HOW MUCH BOTOX DO YOU NEED FOR CROW’S FEET?

Botox injections are customized treatments that require a personalized dosage that account for many factors such as:

  • How frequently you have Botox
  • If it is your first treatment
  • Severity of lines and wrinkles
  • Facial structure and symmetry
  • Target treatment area/size of the treatment area

Crow’s feet are a small treatment area near a sensitive portion of the face. It is recommended to have 12 units of Botox per eye for optimal results. Some patients new to Botox may start with fewer units, around 10 per eye, to ensure natural results with minimal side effects. Your experienced dermatologist can provide a comprehensive assessment of your needs to determine an appropriate amount of Botox to treat crow’s feet.
