One of the first places you may notice facial wrinkles is around your eyes. Crow's feet appear on the outside of the eyes because the skin is constantly folding when the muscles in that area contract when you squint, laugh, or smile. Crow's feet can develop at a fairly young age and they tend to get worse over time. Botox can reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and make you happier with your appearance. Here's how it can help.
Botox Relaxes The Muscles Around Your Eyes
Botox could be an excellent way to get rid of crow's feet if the lines are mostly visible only when you laugh or squint. It works by relaxing the muscles around your eyes so they can't contract and cause lines and creases. Botox can give quick results in these cases. If your crow's feet have become permanent so that they are visible and deep even when your face is relaxed, you may need additional treatments along with Botox to get the optimal results. Botox may gradually lessen the furrows over time as you have multiple treatments, or you could combine the Botox with a filler to get quicker results.
Botox Is Gentle On Delicate Skin Around Your Eyes
One reason crow's feet are difficult to treat with home remedies and other treatments is that the skin around your eyes is very delicate. You have to be careful about using skincare products around your eyes or you could increase wrinkling, sagging, and puffiness. Botox works on the muscles under the skin, so there is no damage to the skin itself except for the tiny needle punctures that heal quickly.
Since your eye area is usually very tender, the skin will be numbed before the procedure begins. Crow's feet cover a small area so you won't need many injections to get good results.
Botox Injections Are Repeated To Maintain Results
One thing to keep in mind is that Botox injections can take several days to take effect. You probably won't notice the full results right away, so if you want the treatments so you can look younger for a reunion or wedding, then you'll want to schedule the treatments far enough in advance. Also, Botox does wear off over time, so to maintain your wrinkle-free appearance, you'll need to repeat the injections in several months. However, when the wrinkles return, they may not be as deep as previously due to the weakening of the muscles in the treated area.
Botox treatments on your crow's feet can make a big difference in your appearance, especially if you have skin that wrinkles easily. Looking younger gives you more self-confidence and helps you feel better about your appearance. Botox can even be used on your forehead and other areas when wrinkles begin to appear there. It's a convenient alternative to surgery and can help you stave off wrinkles for as long as possible. To learn more, contact a dermatologist near you.Share

My parents taught me healthy eating habits and I played outside a lot as a kid. Once I was old enough to work, I got a job as a waiter at a restaurant and kept waiting tables throughout high school and college. After college, I got my very first desk job, and my health started declining. I soon realized that even though I had never stepped foot in a gym, I was living a sedentary lifestyle for the first time in my life. I wasn't getting exercise playing outside or running around at work, so I decided to commit to going to the gym. My health began to improve and I now greatly enjoy bodybuilding. I know many other people are in ill health and can't figure out why, so I decided to start a blog to share my health tips and inspire everyone improve their health!
