Crow’s Feet (Periorbital) Wrinkles in dearborn

Whether you are talking about laugh lines, crow’s feet or wrinkles under the eyes in general, there is always a simple way to permanently eliminate these signs of ageing. Botulinum toxin aka Botox as well as hyaluronic acid can be used. They show remarkable results. We offer this treatment here in laderma located at Dearborn.

What are smile lines or crow’s feet?

Smile lines, also known as crow’s feet, are the lines that appear at the outer corners of the eyes when a person smiles. These lines are formed due to the contraction of the muscles around the eyes when a person smiles, squints or laughs. Over time, repeated muscle contractions cause the skin to lose elasticity and create permanent wrinkles or fine lines. Smile lines are a natural part of aging and can also be caused by sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental factors.

How can smile lines or crow’s feet be removed?

There are two ways to treat smile lines and crow’s feet. Firstly, botulinum toxin can be injected into the responsible muscles, which reduces their strength. The result is a – literally – more relaxed facial expression. In addition, hyaluronic acid can be used to make the skin appear fuller and more radiant. Hyaluronic acid is not applied to the muscle but to the skin and is an ideal complement to Botox injection.

Botox for relaxation

If you choose Botox for the treatment of frown lines, the corrugator is relaxed. This weakening of the muscle significantly softens the frown lines. Since this wrinkle is caused by the tension of the two muscles mentioned, the treatment with botulinum toxin, which actively induces relaxation, is ideally suited for the removal of the frown line. However, as with any Botox treatment, the effect only lasts for a certain time. After that, the wrinkles reappear and the treatment has to be repeated.

Injections with hyaluronic acid

If the frown lines are not too deep, injections with hyaluronic acid can achieve a good, smoothing result. This effect also diminishes over time, as the hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body.

Botox and hyaluronic acid in combination

In order to achieve a longer lasting effect, a combined treatment with Botox and hyaluronic acid is recommended. This can achieve an immediately visible smoothing of the corresponding expression lines. This form of treatment is absolutely recommended, especially for deeply buried frown lines. By the way: In order to have your frown lines removed or injected, there is also the possibility of filling with your own fat, collagen or lactic acid preparations in addition to filling with hyaluronic acid. Please contact us.

Removal of the corrugator muscle

Probably the most lasting method of combating frown lines is by removing the corrugator muscle that causes them. This cosmetic operation is particularly suitable if an upper eyelid correction is being carried out anyway. The muscle can also be removed as part of a facelift. In the long term, the unwanted deepening can hardly be treated.

How is the crow’s feet treatment with Botox?

During a Botox treatment for crow’s feet, the injector will make several small injections around the outer corners of the eyes where the crow’s feet are located. The botulinum toxin will temporarily relax the muscles in the area, preventing them from contracting and causing the wrinkles to appear less prominent.

Botox treatment for crow’s feet is a quick and minimally invasive procedure, with little to no downtime required. The effects of Botox for crow’s feet typically last for around 3-4 months before another treatment is needed to maintain the results.

As with any cosmetic treatment, there are some potential side effects to be aware of, such as temporary bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection sites. It is important to choose a qualified and experienced injector who can properly assess your individual needs and provide safe and effective treatment.
