Crows Feet Treatments

These are the wrinkles on the lateral side of your eyes. The lines typically exaggerated with facial expression such as smiling or squinting. The lines are most commonly associated with increased in strength and size of the muscles in that area, followed by volume loss. Treatment is targeted at weakening the muscles which leads to shrinkage of the muscle and less wrinkles over time.

Treatment to this area generally helps getting rid of these excessive eye wrinkles, giving you more confidence when you smile.

Remove Excessive Muscle Bulk

 

This is a non-surgical procedure that destroy fat cells using a synthetic version of a compound which is naturally produced in our bodies to break down fat. This compound is directly inserted into the stubborn fat areas to permanently destroy unwanted fat cells.

This is a very popular treatment for Men and Women.

Common Questions

How do they work?

A neurotoxin is injected directly into the muscles causing the horizontal wrinkle lines on the side of the eyes and sometimes vertical lines beneath the eyes. The neurotoxin leads to weakening and shrinkage of these muscles resulting in a more approachable and warm complexion, and a more youthful appearance especially with facial expression.

When should I expect to notice results?

Unlike fillers, anti-wrinkle treatments do not show immediate results. The effect of the neurotoxin generally kicks in between 3-7 days after treatment, with a peak effect at 2 to 4 weeks

How long do the effects of neurotoxins last?

Generally 3 to 6 months. Approximately just over 60% of patient will retain neurotoxin effects at the 4 months mark post treatment. Depending on genetics and lifestyle, some patients only retain effects for up to 8 weeks (those who are extremely physically active tends to metabolize the product faster and have shorter lasting results).

Pain Relief

Most practitioners and patients prefer to have some form of pain relief. There are multiple options available for your convenience;

  • Local anaesthesia using a nerve block is a fantastic method to achieve almost no pain at all, however this does vary based on individual. This is quite similar and sometimes used interchangeably with the term dental block. Most dermal fillers also contain local anaesthesia and hence any pain experienced during treatment generally tends to improve throughout
  • Laughing gas (also known as happy gas or Nitros oxide) is also available.
  • Applying ice to the area prior to treatment can also help reduce the pain, and applying ice after the procedure also helps reduce the swelling.

After the pain relief is applied, cleaning agents to minimise infection risk, such as alcohol swabs or Chlorhexidine is applied to the area. Dermal fillers are applied by injecting the product and inserting accordingly at different layers beneath the skin

Right After The Procedure

After treatment Some bruising, redness and swelling maybe present and self resolve over the next few days. Generally the swelling tends to provide a slightly enhanced effect due to the increased volume associated with this, which tends to disappear eventuate into a more natural appearance. Some patients tend to enjoy the swelling effect, however others may prefer the more natural effect.

Anti-Wrinkle After Care

No makeup or face creams for 4 hours

Avoid alcohol for the next 24hrs (1 to 2 standard drinks is generally acceptable)

No gym or exercise on that day

Treatment Risks

Risks and side effects of Dermal fillers

Bruising

Swelling in the injection region

Redness

Asymmetry. One side may have a better outcome than the other. This is often due to the fact that faces have a great degree of asymmetry and people often tend to focus more on their face after treatment where these asymmetries become more obvious to the individuals. With many patients, one side of the face tends to be healthier and respond better to treatment providing more structural support and better outcome.

Infection; rare but is always a possibility when there is any opening of the skin

Necrosis (cells death due to obstruction of a blood vessel): Rare complication. This may potentially lead to worse outcomes.

Blindness is an extremely rare outcome.
