Wrinkles and Crow's Feet

Crow's feet, also known as laughter lines or smile lines, are the small wrinkles or lines that appear around the outer corners of the eyes. They are a natural part of the aging process and commonly develop as a result of repetitive facial expressions, such as smiling or squinting, over the years. The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to collagen and elastin breakdown, leading to the formation of these fine lines.

Treatment for Crow's Feet:

  • Topical Retinoids: Over-the-counter or prescription retinoid creams can help improve the appearance of crow's feet by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin cell turnover.
  • Bot-uli-num Toxin Injections (Bo-to-x): Injecting small amounts of bot-uli-num toxin into the muscles responsible for crow's feet can temporarily relax them, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

What Do Anti-wrinkle Injections Comprise of?

Anti-wrinkle injections involve micro injections of Bot-uli-num toxin, a purified form of a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium bot-uli-num. It is used medically and cosmetically to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines temporarily.

How Do These Injections Work?

When injected into specific muscles, Bot-uli-num toxin works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. This prevents the muscle from contracting, thus reducing the dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements. Thus it can smooth out wrinkles, particularly those formed by facial expressions such as frowning or squinting.

Is Bo-to-x Safe?

Bot-uli-num toxin (Bo-to-x) is considered safe when administered by a qualified medical professional, such as a dermatologist. However, it's important to discuss your medical history and any potential contraindications with your dermatologist before undergoing treatment.

How Long Does the Effect Last?

It's important to note that Bo-to-x does not directly heal or eliminate wrinkles permanently. Instead, it provides a temporary improvement in their appearance. The effects typically last for several months, and then the muscle activity gradually returns, which may necessitate additional treatments to maintain the desired results. The frequency of Bo-to-x treatments varies, but it is commonly recommended to receive injections every 5 to 6 months to maintain the desired results.

Remember, it's crucial to consult with a qualified dermatologist to discuss your concerns, receive proper guidance, and ensure the safe and effective use of Bo-to-x for wrinkle reduction.

  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are injectable substances, often made of hyaluronic acid, that add volume to the skin. When injected strategically into the lines around the eyes, they plump up the skin, reducing the depth of crow’s feet and restoring a smoother and more youthful appearance.
  • Laser Treatments: Fractional laser resurfacing or non-ablative laser treatments can stimulate collagen production and improve the skin's texture, helping to reduce the appearance of crow's feet.
  • Exilis Elite Treatment: Exilis Elite is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. While Exilis Elite therapy is commonly used for skin tightening and contouring in various body areas, it can also be applied around the eyes to address certain concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles.

How Exilis Elite Works for Wrinkles Around the Eyes

Exilis Elite delivers controlled RF energy to the skin’s deeper layers, promoting collagen remodelling and stimulating the production of new collagen fibers. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, helping to maintain its elasticity and firmness. By encouraging collagen production, Exilis Elite can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
