Treating Crow's Feet
Answered by admin
Fight the Signs of Aging
One of first signs of aging is the appearance of crow’s feet on the deep lines and wrinkles that appear on the outside of the eyes. Crow’s feet are caused by excessive sun exposure, frequent use of expression muscles, and general aging. Although typically seen over the age of 40, crow’s feet can occur in people in their thirties and even their twenties. The appearance of crow’s feet can be minimized through a variety of treatments.
Botox is the most commonly prescribed treatment for crow’s feet. It is also one of the most effective. Botox temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that lead to wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles. Treatment with Botox must be repeated every 3-4 months on average to maintain the desired effect. It is minimally invasive with little to no recovery time needed.
Synthetic dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane plump the skin to fill in and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Dermal injections are also minimally invasive and require very little recovery time. Dermal fillers must be reinjected every six to nine months to maintain the results.
Laser Skin Treatments
Laser skin resurfacing creates a softer, smoother complexion by removing the outer damaged layers of skin. One of the most popular laser treatments is Fraxel which is FDA approved for treating fine lines on the face. Fraxel treatments take half an hour to complete. Most people need three to seven treatments spaced one to four weeks apart.
Other treatment options include chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Patients should have these procedures performed by qualified physicians in a sterile medical environment.
These treatment options can be combined to give you the best outcome. After a consultation with a qualified physician, he or she will suggest the treatment option most appropriate for you.
