BOTOX® Injections for Crow's Feet: A Solution to Wrinkles Around the Eyes
Wrinkles around the eyes (Crow's feet) are a common source of concern for many people. Unfortunately, these fine lines can impact our appearance and self-confidence. Now, cosmetic injections like BOTOX® can restore your features so they appear more refreshed and youthful. Certified nurse practitioner Kim Burke can provide information about wrinkle relaxers during a consultation in Minooka or Tinley Park, IL.
What causes Crow's feet?
Crow's feet are the troublesome lines that form around the outer corners of the eyes. They're primarily caused by repeated muscle contractions, such as squinting, laughing, or frowning, combined with a gradual loss of elasticity in the skin.
When Crow's feet can make us seem tired, older, and less vibrant, we may be tempted to try over-the-counter creams. However, these products may not penetrate deep enough to visibly improve wrinkles. Cosmetic injections like BOTOX® can be the perfect solution,
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX® is a safe way to reverse dynamic wrinkles like Crow's feet. It works by blocking signals sent from the nerves to the underlying muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes wrinkles around the eyes and other areas. Most people notice a visible improvement within days of treatment, with results lasting up to four months. BOTOX® at Kiss Aesthetics can manage various signs of aging, such as:
- Crow's Feet
- Forehead lines (glabellar lines)
- Smile lines around the mouth (nasolabial folds)
BOTOX® injections are also an excellent preventive measure for reducing the appearance of wrinkles before they become too noticeable.
Your BOTOX® consultation
At Kiss Aesthetics, you'll be welcomed by Kim Burke, who will assess your needs and discuss the best approach for cosmetic injections in Minooka or Tinley Park, IL. We may also ask you to make some facial expressions to view your Crow’s feet from every angle. BOTOX® treatment takes about 15 minutes and is minimally invasive. You may feel a stinging sensation, but this is temporary and quickly forgotten once the process is done.
Additional benefits of BOTOX® include:
- No downtime or recovery period required
- Realistic results that don't appear overly frozen
- A smoother, younger-looking complexion around the eyes and other areas
Does BOTOX come with any side effects?
Side effects of BOTOX® are minor and short-lived, but swelling and bruising can be alleviated with a cool compress and over-the-counter medications. Kiss Aesthetics can provide a short list of do's and don'ts so you get the most out of your experience. We encourage patients to return every 3 – 6 months or as recommended to maintain their smooth results. Regular sessions can help reduce the severity and depth of wrinkles so you maintain a youthful, natural look long-term.
