Fine lines around the eyes are among the first signs of aging for many men and women. Years of squinting and frowning, combined with natural collagen loss, lead to wrinkles that impede a rested, relaxed appearance.
Dr. Chris Manios offers BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments for crow’s feet and frown lines in Danville, CA. This Harvard-trained surgeon uses his years of experience to safely and effectively administer the aesthetic injectable known around the world for its anti-aging abilities.
What Are Crow’s Feet & Frown Lines?
Crow’s feet are the wrinkles (radial wrinkles) that form in the corners of the eyes and resemble a bird’s foot. Changes in the collagen and elastin in your face and body usually cause crow’s feet. This happens when you age as well as when you go through a hormonal change.
Frown lines appear on the area between the eyes on the forehead called the glabella. Lines in this area can make you look stern and older than you may be. They are caused by frowning and squinting, which contracts the small muscles and can produce large and deep creases that become permanent regardless of facial expression.
How Does BOTOX Treat Crow’s Feet & Frown Lines?
BOTOX treats wrinkles by relaxing the muscles under the skin that create them. This prescription medication weakens the nerve signal that triggers muscles to contract. As a result, these contractions are smoother and more coordinated, thus reducing the overactive movement of the underlying skin.
BOTOX is an FDA-approved wrinkle treatment that is injected into muscles of the face to temporarily relax muscles of the crow’s feet and between the brows. These injections take only a few minutes and allow you to return to your normal routine right after your appointment.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
Most people notice that their lines and wrinkles either disappear or are significantly reduced for approximately 3 to 4 months. These improvements will take full effect approximately 7 to 14 days after the procedure. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated that patients felt more youthful and confident in their appearance after treatments.
