Crow's Feet or Laughter Lines

What are Crow's Feet?

Also known as laughter lines, ‘crow’s feet’ are fine lines that appear at the corners of the eyes, either while smiling or laughing, or, after a time, when the face is relaxed. They look a little like the splayed toes of a bird, hence the name.

Why do we get them?

The primary cause for crow’s feet is sun exposure, which ages the skin and encourages squinting. Smoking is also a risk factor. However, crow’s feet are also simply a part of the ageing process of the face. They will start small and expand over time.

Can 'Crow's Feet' be treated?

Yes!

They are treated with very small injections to the muscles surrounding the eye, that also serve to tighten the skin of the eyelid and give a slight lift to the eyebrow. This is a procedure which will smooth the wrinkles around your eyes and take the focus away from the lines.

How does the treatment work?

We administer a series of small injections to the muscles surrounding the eyes. These injections block signals from travelling between the nerves and the muscle, therefore reducing movement and creasing of the skin above the muscle.

This relaxing of the muscles helps smooth out the lines around the eyes and stops wrinkles forming when you smile.

What product is used?

We use a product by Galderma called Azzalure – Botulinum Toxin Type A.

Will it hurt?

You may experience some mild discomfort from the needle but the procedure if relatively pain free.

How long does the treatment take?

Around 10 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

Wrinkle relaxing injections are a very safe treatment when carried out by a qualified medical practitioner, however as with all medical procedures there is always a risk.

In this area the biggest risk is bruising.

When will I see results?

You will begin to see results within 3-10 days of treatment taking up to 21 days to take full effect.

How long do results last?

Results last around 4-6 months. This is when our patients normally come back to see us for a top up.
