About crow’s feet
Every time your facial muscles move to make an expression, youthful skin bounces back as soon as your face is at rest due to plentiful amounts of collagen and elastin. Over time, your body produces less of these firming and elastic proteins and fibers. Your skin doesn’t bounce back as readily. The grooves that were visible only when you made facial expressions now show whether your face is moving or at rest.
The muscles responsible for crow’s feet affect the latheral canthus area at the outer corners of your eyes. While these lines are typically superficial, every patient is different. They can be deep lines that extend downward toward the cheeks.
Effective crow’s feet treatment
Botox is a neuromodulator. These treatments work by decreasing the muscle activity that creates expression lines. A relaxed muscle does not produce crow’s feet because the skin isn’t stretched to make the expression. Your results look natural because you can still make facial expressions due to the precise nature of treatment.
Neuromodulators are injected into the treatment area using fine needles and skilled hands. The medical professionals soften crow’s feet by injecting Botox into parts of orbicularis oculi muscle that frames your eyes. Additional Botox may be injected at points farther away from the eye area for longer lines, while the trusted professionals at Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D. may suggest a liquid facelift that combines Botox and dermal fillers like Restylane to plump and smooth deeper lines.
Botox may also be used to smooth frown lines on the forehead. To find out more about treatment, schedule an appointment by calling 805-379-3376.
