Crow’s feet are those small wrinkles at the corner of the eyes that become more pronounced as we age. Just about everyone gets them at some time, due to the depletion of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Injectables, laser treatment, and chemical peels, are a few of the treatment options that promise to banish these wrinkles, but what is really the best way to get rid of crow’s feet.
Why we get crow’s feet
Crow’s feet are dynamic wrinkles created by the repetitive action of the muscles,when smiling or squinting.The skin around the eyes tends to be very thin, and as time passes the loss of hydrating components such as hyaluronic acid,causes it to become dry and scaly. As a result, the skin cannot bounce back into position when you smile or squint, resulting in the deepening of the wrinkles around the eyes.
Botox for crow’s feet
Botox cosmetic is considered one of the best options for crow’s feet. It is a neuromodulator that works by preventing the contraction of the muscles beneath the skin. The temporary weakening of the muscles prevents movement, giving the skin a chance to relax, and causing wrinkles to soften.
Botox is a 15 minute treatment that can easily be done in the lunch hour, and has no downtime. Botox typically lasts 3-4 months in the first instance, but doctors have found that with regular use it can last up to 6 months.
