Crows feet lines and wrinkles - Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Crows Feet Treatment
Using a TGA approved treatment product to smooth and eliminate crow’s feet our clients see amazing results. Frown lines are wrinkles which form between the eyebrows and crow’s feet form around the eyes. Overactive facial muscles around the eyes and lower forehead may give a person an angry, tired, or displeased appearance - even when they are not experiencing that emotion. Professional use of anti-wrinkle injections can result in a more relaxed, yet expressive face. Crows Feet injection work by relaxing the contracted muscles which cause these wrinkles.

Procedure: It is a simple 30min treatment. The area to be treated is cleansed thoroughly. A topical anesthetic cream is applied to reduce discomfort and the anti-wrinkle product is injected with a fine needle directly into the muscle beneath the wrinkle. The muscle function becomes weakened, eliminating part or all of its function. Long-standing skin creases will soften and may eventually disappear. The result is a softer, more relaxed and pleasant appearance.

The procedure takes about 30 minutes. You may return to work immediately. It is a painless procedure, though a slight stinging sensation may be felt.

Side Effects: Redness and bruising at the site of injection may be seen which will resolve in a day or two. You may experience mild headache also. Double vision, drooping or swollen eyelid, dry eyes, and reduced blinking are other side effects. (but very rare)

Precautions: To reduce bruising after treatment:

  • Stop taking anti-inflammatory medicines and aspirin 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Avoid rubbing the treated area or lying down after your treatment as the injected botulinum toxin can spread to other areas nearby and paralyze nerves.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption at least 1 week before treatment.

Results: The results of crows feet injections usually last from four to six months. If you are dissatisfied with the benefits from a single injection, a second injection can be given after 1 week. Once you get a satisfactory result, the next visit is scheduled after 3 months.
