What Are Crows Feet

Crow’s feet are wrinkles around the eyes. They are a side effect of smiling or squinting in the sun. The wrinkles form from the action of facial muscles attached to skin that is too loose to stay smooth in a smile, and too tight to stay smooth in a squint.

Botox is used to treat the symptoms of crows feet, which are wrinkles around the eyes. The skin in this area can easily suffer from dryness, damage and ageing due to factors such as sun exposure and smoking.

Crinkle lines are formed when the tiny muscles beneath the skin contract repeatedly over time, causing the skin round the eyes to form vertical folds that give a tired or angry appearance. Botox is injected into these muscles to relax them temporarily, preventing the formation of crows feet. It works on most people for up to 6 months after injection.

If you live in a sunny climate or spend a lot of time outdoors doing things that make you squint, you have probably damaged your eye muscles—or have not strengthened them enough to begin with. Crow’s feet will fade if you prevent further damage and strengthen the muscles around your eyes.

  • Never go outside without sunscreen on your face. I know it seems like common sense, but many people are surprised by how much sun can get through light clouds.
  •  Wear sunglasses outdoors even when it is cloudy. The UV rays that cause wrinkling are present even on cloudy days, though less intense than on sunny ones.
  • Apply sunscreen underneath your makeup every morning. It sounds silly, but real experts believe this matters for wrinkles just as much as putting on sunscreen after you wash your face does.

Frequently Asked Questions

Botox is a safe poison.

The Botox in a given dose is all gone within four months after injection. That means that if you want to keep smiling without wrinkles, you’ll need another injection after four months.

Crow’s feet generally start appearing around your mid-twenties, with a noticeable increase in frequency by age 30. If you’re lucky, they’ll be the only wrinkles you develop, but if you’re unlucky, you’ll start seeing forehead lines and smile lines as well.
The good news is that they’re hardly ever permanent. In most cases, crow’s feet can be eliminated with a quick injection of Botox into the muscles that create them. You’ll have to wait about a week for it to kick in, but a single treatment will generally last for three to six months.
A few wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, but there’s no reason why those should have to include your eyes. The best way to avoid crow’s feet is to take preventative measures before they appear. Some of those measures involve looking younger–getting more exercise and getting enough sleep–but some involve looking older as well: frowning less and smiling more. And don’t worry about looking phony; it actually takes practice to look naturally happy!

Crow’s feet are wrinkles that appear around the eyes. Botox injections into the muscles around the eyes can help to eliminate those wrinkles. The procedure is relatively inexpensive, and is usually done without any complications.
The procedure involves the injection of botulinum toxin (Botox) below and around the crow’s feet area. The toxin may also be injected under the eyebrow and in the forehead between the eyebrows. The sessions lasts approximately 30 minutes and each side of your face takes 10 minutes to complete.
