Botox has now been approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration for temporary improvement of the appearance of crow’s feet. Crow’s feet are known as the lines around the outside corner of the eyes, and are often one of the first skin aging signs on the face. Botox has been used by doctors since 2002 to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles and “angry lines” between the eyes. While many patients claim to have had their crow’s feet treated by doctors before, Botox is now legally accepted to treat crow’s feet.
Botox treatments can help those who are seeking a smoother skin appearance at the sides of their eyes by temporarily minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet. Many people use retinol creams and chemical peels to reduce the signs of aging, but as skin changes and grows older the effects of these treatments are often less and less ideal. When these treatments are no longer providing the improved appearance you desire, talk with your licensed Botox dermatologist about Botox treatments.
Dermatologists who are licensed to administer Botox treatments can help to obtain the youthful skin you desire and also help to maintain it. Crow’s feet are difficult to treat with over the counter products, and they are also tricky to treat with limited Botox treatments. Because crow’s feet are obtained through the use of the facial muscles that help you to smile and talk, they are impossible to prevent fully. But your licensed dermatologist can effectively reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and bring back the youthful glow to your skin.
