Crow’s feet are among the first and most noticeable signs of aging. Although there are countless creams and rejuvenating serums that can be used to tighten and refresh the skin around the eyes, few of these products are capable of providing the truly impressive results that most people want. Fortunately, BOTOX® can erase fine lines and wrinkles at the mouth, eyes and brow. Best of all, this purified protein solution can help patients achieve their cosmetic goals without the need for incisions, tissue removal or extended recoveries.
How the Injections Work
BOTOX® involves an in-office procedure. The injectable solution is used to temporarily smooth the dynamic wrinkles known as crow’s feet, and with little risk to the patient. Once injected into the skin, this solution relaxes the facial muscles that are responsible for expression. Every time you laugh, smile or frown, the skin around your eyes creases. Over time, this creasing can lead to a buildup of tension in the underlying muscles and the development of fine lines and wrinkles at the skin’s surface. After the nerve signals to the targeted expressive muscles have been effectively targeted by BOTOX®, the topmost layer of the skin will take on a smooth and relaxed appearance.
Why Use BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is low-risk, fast and easy. It is currently one of the most popular products for non-invasive cosmetic enhancement. FDA-approved and trusted by consumers, the results can last for months. The treatments can be safely repeated multiple times per year to maintain the results. This treatment involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules. In fact, as soon as your treatment session is complete, you will be immediately free to resume your normal activities or go back to work.
How to Know if BOTOX® is Right for You
Scheduling a consultation at Pinnacle Dermatology is the first step in determining whether or not BOTOX® injections are right for you. This solution can effectively treat wrinkles across the visage, but you must have the type of wrinkles that BOTOX® can treat. It is used for dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet. If you are dealing with static wrinkles, we can recommend other injectable treatments that are designed to correct these.
