When you smile, your eyes squint and crinkles occur on the outside corners. When you are younger, those creases disappear with your smile. As you get older, smile lines can stay etched in your skin around the eyes. Often called crow’s feet, the wrinkles on the outside corner of the eyes can make you look older. If you want to smooth away your smile lines, minimally invasive treatment is available at London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring. We offer Botox for crow’s feet and other treatments to help you look your best at every age.
The skin around the eyes is very delicate and one of the first areas to show lines and wrinkles. Facial filler injections can be effective for crow’s feet, smile lines and hollows around the eyes. Plumping under the skin can smooth lines around the eyes for a more youthful appearance. This can be combined with Botox, a popular smile lines treatment.
Botox for Crow’s Feet Treatment
Crow’s feet are amongst the dynamic lines that respond well to Botox. Dynamic lines are caused by muscle movement – furrows on the brow, marionette lines and smile lines around the eyes are all examples of dynamic lines. Botox injections work to smooth these lines by impacting muscle contractions. Botox is not a filler and does not change the skin; it relaxes the targeted muscles to smooth dynamic lines caused by muscle contractions.
Smile lines treatment with Botox can be performed in a quick office visit. The injections are placed to target the specific muscles that cause crow’s feet. Botox injections require 5-7 days to take effect fully. No downtime is needed, and the results can last about 3-4 months. Botox is used to diminish crow’s feet and as a preventive treatment for younger patients wanting to maintain a youthful appearance.
