Crows feet is the name given to the fine lines around the eyes. These are also known as the lateral canthal lines. Crows feet are treated by injecting small amounts of anti-wrinkle into the area on the sides of your eyes (the orbicularis oculi) which reduces the ability of the muscle to contract, thereby smoothing out the lines.
Neurotoxin – Anti-wrinkle injections to stop the formation of static lines around the eye area.
Subtle lines around the eyes can give your smile a lovely warmth. But when they become deep and extend into ‘crows feet’ they can be most ageing. This is the most frequently treated area with relaxants, but times and techniques have changed and our team will ensure that your lines are softened, and you regain a youthful smile but maintain your warmth and glow.
We use a range of injectable relaxants and pride ourselves on achieving fresh, vital, real results with our highly qualified nurses.
A bespoke treatment of anti-wrinkle medication will be administered. The procedure is safe, not painful and quick to perform. Note the treatment is temporary, relaxing the muscle for approximately 3-6 months. For optimum results continued anti-wrinkle treatments are required.
There is a detailed consultation with the cosmetic nurse or doctor to discuss treatment options based on the patient expectations. During the consultation the cosmetic nurse or doctor will assess your face, note asymmetry, and take photographs to document your cosmetic journey.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are generally well tolerated. You will notice the product taking effect 2-4 days after the procedure, and full effect will be visible 2 weeks after the treatment.
The most common side effects include: local irritation or redness and mild to moderate swelling. Although rare, bruising can occur. If it does remember it is temporary and can be covered with make up 24 hours after the treatment.
