The formation of wrinkles can be caused by several factors, including:
- Age – as naturally over time your skin loses its elasticity and becomes gradually more fragile and looser. You will also experience a reduction in natural oil production which will dry out your skin and create the appearance of wrinkles.
- Facial expressions – although to may not realise you are starting the wrinkle process by smiling and squinting, because, every time you move your face you are creating small grooves and lines in your face that will eventually form into permanent wrinkles such as crow’s feet or smile lines.
- Sunlight – overexposure to ultraviolet radiation can significantly break down collagen and elastin fibre which are part of your skin’s connective tissue. This causes the skin to weaken and sag, resulting in premature wrinkles.
- Smoking – which speeds up the natural ageing process as nicotine causes your blood vessels to narrow which ultimately reduces blood flow and as a result damages your skin’s collagen, which causes it to wrinkle.
In order to eliminate wrinkles, our expert physicians use Botulinum, toxin A, which is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Botulinum, toxin A targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years.
If you wish to improve the appearance of your eye area, Botox® can be injected into the side muscle surrounding each eye in order to temporarily reduce muscle movement and diminish the presence of your crow’s feet.
After the procedure, you will notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults.
