Which Injectables Really Work Against the Dreaded Crow’s Feet?
- Posted on: Jun 22 2015
Aging, genetics, and lifestyle are just some of the factors that significantly affect the appearance of crow’s feet or those lines and wrinkles that develop at the outer corner of your eye. Here at our Las Vegas cosmetic surgery practice, men and women alike are one in their not-so-endearing sentiments against crow’s feet and would often inquire about which injectables are effective in reducing its appearance.
Why Crow’s Feet Develop
First of all, crow’s feet is actually a result of a lifetime of expressions such as laughing, smiling, squinting, and crying. The constant contraction of the muscles when you make an expression prompts the overlying skin to repeatedly fold and stretch until it becomes permanent.
In addition, other factors that contribute to the appearance of crow’s feet include the following:
- consistent sun exposure can prematurely break down the collagen in the skin around the eye area resulting in the crepey look
- smoking, first through the mechanical action of dragging the cigarette and second, through the chemical irritants and toxic ingredients that get passed through the skin around the eye area
- constant lack of moisture
The Perfect Injectables Against Crow’s Feet
Apart from creating a routine eye care regimen such as the application of quality eye creams, wrinkle relaxing injectables such as Botox® and Xeomin® can reduce and prevent further formation of crow’s feet. Injection of Botox® or Xeomin® can soften the area so that your facial expressions are more in harmony with your true feelings.
