CROWS

Crows Feet Anti-Wrinkle Injections

These are the wrinkles on the lateral side of your eyes. Crows feet lines are typically exaggerated with facial expressions such as smiling or squinting. The lines are most commonly associated with increased 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.

A Comprehensive Facial Assessment with one of our Medical Professionals allows for an accurate assessment and intervention plan to determine the best and most effective methods to minimise wrinkle lines. At Flawless Aesthetics Clinics, our priority is to keep you feeling young, refreshed and FLAWLESS.

Frequently asked questions:

A neurotoxin is injected into the targeted areas weakening part of the muscles that relax the muscle involved which reduces the appearance of those lines. The neurotoxin leads to a temporary paralysis of parts of the muscle which leads to a significant reduction in crows feet wrinkle lines, especially those more prominent with facial expressions. 

Unlike Dermal 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. At 8 weeks the brows begin to lower. At 3 months post treatment, approximately 50% of the effect would be gone.

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

PRE TREATMENT PAIN RELIEF

Please note that most patients can return to work within 20 min without any obvious signs of treatment.
Please try to avoid alcohol and intense exercise for at least 24h hours.
No lying down for 24 hours
No facial massage, spa or sauna for 1 week.

  1. Ice Packs can be provided prior and post treatment for additional comfort precautions 
  2. Topical Numbing Cream such as EMLA or LMX is applied to the treatment area prior to the procedure.
  3. Local Anaesthesia can also be injected into the treatment area (or nearby) and acts as a nerve block to achieve a numbing sensation and no feeling of the area for those who are sensitive to any form of pain. This is interchangeable with the term ‘Dental Block’ used by dentists in Dental procedures. 
  4. Nitrous Oxide Gas (Laughing Gas) can also be provided, however is not recommended as movement during the procedure may impact results. 

Post any pain relief services, chemical cleaning agents (alcohol wipes/Chlorhexidine) are used to cleanse treatment areas to minimise infection risk. Dermal Filler injections are not impacted by this as they are inserted in different layers beneath the superficial skin layer. 

 
POST TREATMENT EXPECTATIONS

Its important that every patient has realistic expectations. Patients respond differently to the same dose of treatment, as same patients may require a higher or lower dose. We also take into consideration how much movement each patient desires prior to treatment as this help direct the dosage required. It may take between 3 to 7 days for the effects of the toxin to kick in, and this generally tends to peak at 2 to 3 weeks.
