Botox® Injections for Crow’s Feet

Those tiny fan-like lines on the outside corners of your eyes are commonly known as crow’s feet. These little wrinkles are often the first ones to make an appearance, and everyone gets them at some point in life. This is because the skin in this area is very thin. The repeated contractions of the facial muscles when you squint, smile and laugh cause the thin skin to wrinkle. Over time, those wrinkles become deeper and more visible even when those muscles are at rest. Botox® injections can help eradicate those little lines.

When Botox is injected into the underlying muscles, it blocks some of the nerve signals going to the brain, so the muscle does not move as much. While the muscles are in this relaxed state, the skin lying on top is able to remain smooth and unwrinkled or less wrinkled, depending on how deep the lines are.

Treatment for crow’s feet using Botox injections takes only a few minutes. The Botox is injected with fine needles directly into the muscle below the skin. Topical anesthetic may be used to numb the area before treatment begins. There may be some minor side effects with treatment, such as minimal swelling in the treatment area, possible redness or light bruising.

Results with Botox

Botox treatments are very effective in smoothing out the fine lines of crow’s feet; however, results are not immediate. In general, it takes a few days for the true results of the treatment to be noticeable. After a few days, the muscles around your eyes will begin to relax, and the skin at the corners will begin to look smoother.

Wrinkle treatment with Botox is not permanent. On average, Botox treatment for this purpose lasts about four to six months. In order to maintain your new look, you will need to have regular follow-up injections every few months. With continuous follow-up treatments, the procedure is very effective for eliminating crow’s feet.

Recovery from these treatments is simple. You can resume your normal activities immediately. You will be able to wash your face and wear makeup, but do not rub the skin around your eye. To do so would possibly move the Botox out of the treated area.

Crow’s feet are a sign of aging, and you can take down those signs when you make an appointment with Michele Rivard, PA or Dr. Khosh, at Creative Facial Aesthetics for Botox treatment.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
