Lines around the eyes give a variety of emotional expressions, most of which convey a negative impression.
These Crow's Feet are the result of normal but excessive muscle action of the underlying sphincter muscle of the eye and produce wrinkles that radiate outward in a 'sunray' effect. Elimination or softening of these lines is a frequently requested procedure. Injections alone are a great treatment for young patients given their prophylactic effects. While this request is simple, in the older population, adequately treating crow's feet often requires combining the injections with a rejuvenating treatment such as Carboxytherapy, Skin Needling or a combination of some of these, to obtain optimal results. With most rejuvenating treatments, a good long-term result is only possible if the underlying muscle action is controlled with anti-wrinkle injections.
