As we age, we all get little lines radiating out from the corners of our eyes. These lines are called crow’s feet, and are a telltale sign of age. Crow’s feet reduction can help to make you look younger and more vibrant, and can done fairly easily with a neuromodulator, such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. Especially deep crow’s feet can also be touched up with a dermal filler, such as Belotero. The expert dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are skilled at all kinds of Botox and dermal filler injections, and can help you to obtain a more youthful look while still retaining a natural appearance with anti-wrinkle treatments.

Crow’s Feet Reduction

Botox is often used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. It is a neuromodulator that works by relaxing certain wrinkle-causing muscles, and is highly effective at both smoothing and preventing wrinkles. Botox can even be used at a young age to prevent wrinkles from forming and deepening in the first place! Botox is FDA approved and is considered very safe when injected by a skilled, board-certified dermatologist. It is not generally a good idea to have Botox injections done by a different type of doctor, such as a dentist or family practitioner, as only dermatologists who have undergone extensive training and have intimate knowledge of facial anatomy will be able to inject Botox precisely enough that it leaves you with a natural appearance and does not cause any side effects.

Some people are worried about using Botox because they think it will freeze all their facial muscles and they won’t be able to make natural expressions any longer. This is an unfounded fear, as expert injectors such as those at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology know how to place injections in such a way that everyday expressions are not affected at all.
