Reducing the crow’s feet

botulinum toxin injections to reduce the crow’s feet

Wrinkles, whether superficial or deep, are signs of years passing. They occur because of skin aging, sometimes accelerated by external factors such as sun exposure, pollutants, alcohol and stress. The skin progressively loses elasticity and starts developing wrinkles.

The eye area is generally the first one showing wrinkles, because the skin is particularly thin.

Crow’s feet are mainly caused by the frequent muscle contractions when we smile. They are also called dynamic wrinkles, or “laugh lines”.

The good news is that we can easily treat the Crow’s feet condition with botulinum toxin injections : they help relaxing the muscles and naturally smooth the wrinkles, giving the whole eye area an improved appearance.

botulinum toxin has indeed a particularly efficient action because it doesn’t treat the wrinkle itself but the muscle which is responsible for it, reducing its contraction.
