As we age the changes that our body experiences are inevitable and the development of wrinkles is one such example of these changes. The lines that begin to form in the corner of your eye are known as crow’s feet and these usually emerge as a result of consistent muscle movement in and around the eyes.
There are numerous methods available for the treatment of crow’s feet. These procedures can usually diminish the visibility of these lines, and in some cases, eliminate them completely.
How Does It Work?
Botulinum toxin is an extremely effective way of smoothing out the fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle movements. These movements are unavoidable and tend to occur when we make different facial expressions. The appearance of crow’s feet can be managed by the injection of Botulinum toxin into a specific area of treatment – this causes the muscles around your eyes to relax and also prevents them from contracting.
Once Botulinum toxin has been administered your face will still be expressive – this is because Botulinum toxin is only injected into the muscles around the eyes in small doses.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
Almost all adults are suitable for Botulinum toxin treatment, however, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding then this procedure may not be for you.
Typically, those who choose to undergo this procedure have tried various other things before, although almost anyone who is uncomfortable with the appearance of crow’s feet around their eyes could benefit from treatment. In cases where the skin around the eyes has sagged to a significant degree, this may not provide optimal results and you may be advised to pursue a different course of action.

Most patients who undergo treatment report that any pain is mild and manageable. Regardless of your tolerance for discomfort, there is a chance that slight redness and swelling may appear around your eyes for a short amount of time after the procedure.
Patients tend to see results after just three or four days. Most patients who have used Botulinum toxin as a solution for crow’s feet have found that results last for at least four months, though this can vary from patient to patient.
Most patients will see results after just one treatment, however, if you want to maintain your new look then follow-up sessions will be required.
