When your smile reaches your eyes, it is a genuine expression of happiness. The eyes squint and the sides of the eyes crease as your cheeks raise and your mouth forms a smile. As you get older, the creases on the outside of the eyes can form wrinkles that look like crow’s feet. These are some of the most common lines to appear on the face, especially if you love to smile. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center, we offer Botox® for smile line treatment at our facility in Toledo, OH.
Crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes are common due to the delicate, thinner skin in this area. As the body produces less collagen and elastin, this skin is prone to lost volume and elasticity. The smile lines around the eyes can become etched in the skin, aging the eyes and face. To help smooth away these lines and wrinkles, Botox injections can relax the muscles that create these creases in the skin.
Get Rid of Crow’s Feet
Botox injections are the most popular cosmetic treatment used at plastic surgery practices, with millions of treatments requested every year. As a neuromodulator, Botox blocks nerve signals to muscles, relaxing the targeted muscles. Botox is FDA-approved for several cosmetic treatments, including crow’s feet or smile lines around the eyes. With precise injections, the crinkles on the outside of the eyes smooth and the eyes look years younger within a week after treatment.
Botox for smile line treatment can be completed in about 20 minutes. The injections are not painful and there are very few side effects – the most common are bruising or swelling from the needle. Effects can begin showing in a few days, and results last up to four months or longer. You can continue to receive Botox treatments to maintain a smoother appearance around your eyes.
