Crow’s feet, the lines and wrinkles that form at the corner of the eyes, are a common complaint of maturing adults. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of crow’s feet, cosmetic treatment may be right for you. There are a number of treatment options to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. BOTOX® injections are a popular choice because they are a non-surgical treatment option for fine lines and wrinkles, providing instant rejuvenating results with no down time for recovery. To find out which treatment for crow’s feet is right for you, schedule a consultation with Gainesville, FL plastic surgeon Greg Gaines.
Treatments for Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet treatment can help turn back the hands of time and minimize years of aging. Fortunately, there are a number of non-surgical treatment options available to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and enhance your appearance. Here are just a few of the most popular treatments offered by Dr. Gaines.
BOTOX® injections can help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, and other facial lines and wrinkles, in a single treatment. BOTOX® injections provide temporary treatment of crow’s feet, with results lasting around four months. The injections may be repeated for a continued rejuvenated appearance. BOTOX® treatment targets troublesome facial lines and wrinkles through minimally invasive injections. As the BOTOX® solution takes effect, the muscles in targeted areas are temporarily paralyzed, allowing the skin to sit smoothly on the face, reducing the appearance of lines and creases. Although some may see immediate results after BOTOX® treatment, full results will become apparent within three to five days after treatment.
Juvederm® injections are another option for reducing the appearance of unwanted facial creases. Like BOTOX® treatment, Juvederm® injections require no recovery and are minimally invasive. Juvederm® treatment adds volume to the tissues, helping to fill out lines and wrinkles for a smooth, supple appearance. The Juvederm® solution is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. The rejuvenating effects of Juvederm® injections last nine months to a year and can be re-administered as necessary for long-term results.
Dermabrasion is a treatment used to improve the overall appearance of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermabrasion creates a smooth, healthy facial glow through the gentle removal of the topmost layer of the skin. This encourages new skin production for a healthy, smooth appearance. Dermabrasion can even help reduce the appearance of acne scars and other facial scars, creating a flawless appearance.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can help improve the overall appearance by reducing the depth of wrinkles and improving skin texture, beneficial for those wishing to address crow’s feet, and may be combined with other treatments for enhanced results. Laser skin resurfacing uses a special laser to gently remove layers of damaged skin and encourage collagen production. Laser skin resurfacing requires a short recovery time as the skin may feel tender and appear red after treatment.
