What to Do About Crow's Feet

Some wrinkles, particularly those in the upper portion of your face, develop because of repeated facial expression. Each time you lift your eyebrows, you contribute to forehead lines. If you furrow your brows when you frown, you might end up with lines between them. And when you smile, you probably notice a crinkling at the corners of your eyes, which we call crow’s feet. 

Crow’s feet are particularly troublesome. They often form earlier than other wrinkles because the skin around the eyes is so delicate. Plus, constant eye movement (blinking) makes it hard to keep that skin smooth and at rest. 

However, there’s no need to worry. At Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center, Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, and our team offer a targeted treatment to get rid of crow’s feet in just minutes. It’s called BOTOX® and it can help restore your youthful look. 

Treating crow’s feet

Crow’s feet are technically categorized as dynamic wrinkles. As we mentioned, these wrinkles form because of repeated movement in the area. While you might develop other wrinkles like deeper nasolabial folds purely because your skin loses volume as you age, your expressiveness is to blame for crow’s feet. 

Because the issue lies with movement in the area, the best way to treat crow’s feet is to still the muscles that cause those wrinkles. Dr. Patel does this through Botox. With this quick injection (treatment usually takes 10 minutes or less), he can temporarily freeze the muscle under your crow’s feet. 

By freezing the muscle, the skin over it has a chance to relax. This smooths the wrinkles around your eyes, helping you look younger and more alert. 

Botox as a lunchtime procedure

If you’re concerned about injection-based treatment, it can be helpful to know Botox is FDA-approved and has been used for decades. In fact, it’s so convenient and low-risk that people often refer to it as a lunchtime procedure. 

You can pop into Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center on your lunch break, get your treatment, and head right back to your daily activities immediately. There’s no downtime to get in your way.  

If crow’s feet are bothering you, don’t wait to ask Dr. Patel if Botox is right for you. He offers consultations at our office to determine the best way to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
