Crows Feet

Crows Feet

The lines that form around the corner of your eyes are referred to as ‘Crows feet’ the skin is thin here and loses elasticity as we age and hence wrinkles appear. Crow’s feet develop over time because of tiny muscle contractions that happen every time you make a facial expression. No matter which type of crow’s feet you have, there are treatment options available. In some people, the signs of crow’s feet can be completely reversed, at least temporarily.

Treatments for Crows Feet

There are a couple of treatment options for Crows Feet, the most applicable one will be determined at your consultation with the doctor.  One option is Dermal fillers, these can also be used to treat crow’s feet. Dermal fillers are particularly effective for static crow’s feet, which appear constantly, even when the face is at rest. The effects of dermal fillers usually last anywhere from 3–12 months, but they can last longer.

Another option is Botulinum Toxin A – Botox®  which works to smooth out wrinkles caused by repetitive muscles contractions that happen when you make facial expressions. This treatment is very effective for crow’s feet. Botox is best suited for people age 30–50 whose wrinkles are just starting to develop. It’s not effective on the deep wrinkles common among older adults. Botox is injected directly into the affected area with a small needle, which causes the muscles to relax. Botox prevents the muscles from contracting, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles or cause them to disappear entirely. Botox is particularly effective in people with dynamic wrinkles. Botox will not keep you from making facial expressions. It will only target those muscles around the eyes that are causing your crow’s feet. The effects typically last about 3 months. All The treatments are available at our Surrey clinics in Woking & Frimley Green, call today to book your consultation on 01932 706402
