Bothered by eye wrinkles? Wish to reduce the crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes? Botox treatment is the right solution. Botox temporarily relaxes the target muscle by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscle. It prevents the contraction of the muscle and helps reduce crow’s feet.
During your initial consultation, we will discuss your needs and areas of concern. We will suggest a customized Botox treatment plan, that includes the areas to be treated and the amount of Botox required.
What is Crow's Feet Botox?
Eye Wrinkles or Wrinkles around the eye form over time due to frequent contraction of the orbicularis muscle which help you “smile with your eyes”.
The term “Crow’s feet” comes about because the wrinkles and lines around the eyes radiate outwards in a fashion that resembles a crow’s feet.
Crows Feet Eye Botox improves these lines by relaxing the muscles around the eye.
What Causes Crow's Feet?
We develop crow’s feet/eye wrinkles/smile lines naturally with aging. When we smile, we use the outside part of our orbicularis oculi muscle causing crow’s feet to occur. Due to the loss of elastic tissue and natural collagen in our skin, the crow’s feet etch in permanently. These fine lines are there even when we are not smiling.
To overcome this issue, we suggest crow’s feet Botox treatment at our Singapore-based clinic. Dr. Edwin will evaluate your facial muscles and suggest a suitable treatment plan according to your needs.
An ultra-fine needle is injected into the muscles surrounding the eye, targeting the orbicularis-oculi. Contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle leads to the formation of crow’s feet. The botox injection blocks the nerve signals to the muscle, causing muscle relaxation which results in improvement of the crow’s feet with smooth, youthful skin around the eyes.
Will botox fix crow’s feet permanently?
Unfortunately, no! Botox cannot fix crow’s feet permanently. However, with proper follow-ups, it is possible to maintain results of botox treatment for longer periods. Most people can enjoy the results of botox treatment for up to 5 to 6 months with proper follow-ups and regular treatments.
How is crow’s feet botox treatment performed?
Once Dr Edwin formulates your customised botox treatment plan, we will take you to one of our procedure rooms. After you’re settled in the treatment chair, Dr Edwin will clean your face to remove any lotion, oil or residue.
Next, he will ask you to smile, frown, or laugh to mark the injection sites. Cold ice is applied to the area right before injection to numb the area and minimise the chances of swelling and bruising. Then, botox is injected carefully using a fine needle near your crow’s feet.
What are the potential side effects of Crow’s feet botox?
Crow’s feet botox is generally considered a safe treatment when done by an experienced doctor. However, the potential side effects of the treatment include:
Swelling or bruising around the eyes Overdosage may lead to weakness of eye closure
What kind of results can I expect from Botox treatment for crow’s feet?
Botox is a highly effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles and it can make a huge difference in the appearance of crow’s feet. You will see that the lines and wrinkles are less prominent after the botox treatment.
However, it is not a permanent treatment and the results will last on average between 4 to 6 months. Once the effects start to fade, it is recommended to repeat the treatment again for best results.
