With every year that passes you by, the early signs of aging creep up on you and cause your body to go through a number of different changes. By the time you reach your thirties, these changes become even more pronounced. Eventually, your youthful features will begin to fade away and be replaced by wrinkles and fine lines.

The face is one of the most susceptible regions on our bodies that begin to showcase the early signs of aging. One of the most common aesthetic issues people face is the appearance of crow’s feet.

Crow’s feet are the lines that extend outward from the corner of the eyes. They often appear when the muscles near our eyes contract when we make certain facial expressions. It’s most noticeable when we are smiling. Luckily, it’s possible to fight back these signs of aging with Botox. This cosmetic treatment is capable of eradicating different kinds of wrinkles.

Two Types of Wrinkles

Wrinkles and fine lines begin to take shape on the face as a result of years of facial contractions. As you get older, your body’s production of collagen begins to decrease and the elasticity of your skin diminishes. As a result, the lines your face makes when making certain expressions begin to set in permanently. The two types of wrinkles that form are called static and dynamic wrinkles.

Static wrinkles are noticeable even when you’re not making any facial expressions that cause your skin to contract. They become even more prominent when you do make an expression. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear when a specific facial muscle is contracted. Crow’s feet fall under this category because these wrinkles are most prominent when you are smiling. Botox is an effective treatment for both types of wrinkles and can help rejuvenate your youthful good looks.

Treat Crow’s Feet With Botox

Botox is an injectable treatment designed to relax the facial muscles that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles. It is a neurotoxin that can inhibit the signals that cause the muscles to contract. It’s a quick treatment that can be performed in as little as 15 minutes. You can receive it over the course of a lunch break and make it back to your normal activities without a misstep.

What to Expect During the Botox Treatment

The botox injectable is applied directly into the region where the wrinkles are present. The amount required depends on your individual needs and goals. The quality of your skin will be assessed prior to the injection to tailor the treatment to fit your unique needs.

Ideal Candidates for Botox

You may be a good candidate for Botox if you are currently dealing with the appearance of prominent fine lines and wrinkles. In order to be sure, you must first undergo a consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon. In the right hands, the quality of your skin will be assessed and the treatment will be customized to fit your specific needs. Patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations as well.
