There are so many crow’s feet treatment options to choose from, other than the obvious injectable treatments like Botox® or dermal fillers. These wrinkles, also called smile lines, are largely a product of repeated facial expressions, but can be made deeper or more obvious by certain lifestyle factors. Things like having a high-sugar diet, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption affect the way your skin ages, doing damage to the proteins that keep it strong, collagen and elastin.
Crow’s Feet Treatment Options : Botox® and Dermal Fillers
Botox® is the one of the most common treatments offered for crow’s feet, and is performed by our highly skilled doctors and injectable nurses at PHI Clinic. By introducing product into the area via an injection, Botox® relaxes the muscle that lies beneath the wrinkle, smoothing it over for a improved appearance that lasts for around 3 to 4 months. Botox® works best for dynamic lines, that are visible during expression, and cannot soften static, or ‘etched-in,’ lines.
Dermal fillers are best used for these static lines, as they reintroduce volume into the area, filling the fine lines around the eyes. The fillers we use contain a naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid, which works to retain water for a plumping effect, with results that last for up to 24 months.
For those who want to avoid injectables, laser treatments are often a brilliant alternative for a reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet without introducing any product into the skin. Our laser resurfacing devices can be used at a range of intensities to treat crow’s feet of varying severity, by delivering concentrated energy to the surface of skin to encourage collagen growth and remove dead skin.
We find that some people may need more than one treatment in order to see results, and often suggest a combination of sessions for the best outcomes. This can be a mixture of injectables, or include laser devices and skincare for an improvement in the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles beside the eyes.
