Are crow’s feet making you look older?
Crow’s feet or squint lines are wrinkles that occur at the outer corner of your eyes. You can see those lines when you smile and can make one appear older.
The crow’s feet can be treated in several ways. The first is the use of Botox Cosmetic. Botox is often used as a preventative measure so that the permanent intradermal lines take a long time to form.
Once the lines are etched in the skin, ablative laser technology must be used to smooth out the wrinkles. Fractionated ablative lasers such as the CO2 FRAXEL re:pair, the Cutera’s YSGG laser remove microscopic columns of skin and stimulate new collagen to be laid down smoothing out the lines in the skin. These are permanent changes to the skin. Using these lasers, there is approximately a week of downtime where there will be weeping of the skin for the first few days. Often Botox Toronto is used to quieten the muscle prior to ablative laser resurfacing.
The use of hyaluronic acid injectable fillers placed subcutaneously under the skin in a linear fern type of fashion is another option. Using this technique there can be significant bruising, because of the hidden veins in this area. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm Toronto or Restylane Toronto are temporary. Botox is also used to quieten the muscle prior to the injection.
Combination treatments are often the best treatment options to get rid of those crow’s feet.
