“Crow’s feet” is the common term used to describe the fine lines that form around the corners of the eyes. These wrinkles typically form as a result of the aging process. As we age, our muscles become stiff from repeated use. These stiff muscles distort the skin above them and cause wrinkles to form.
Crow’s feet can be managed with Botox injections. Botox temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles it is injected into, which allows them to relax and take on a more natural shape. When these muscles are at rest, the skin above them will become smoother and will have a more youthful appearance.
Botox injections can performed routinely in order to keep your face looking young and to prevent the muscle strain that can cause crow’s feet to occur. Contact Boulder Valley Plastic Surgery to schedule an appointment for your Botox injections.
