BOTOX Crows Feet Scottsdale

Aging is a natural part of life. Some people age must faster than others. There may be a plethora of reasons for this. But, many people, to no avail, have gone in search of the fountain of youth. This may have been a myth until recent years with the introduction of Botox which have many people declaring that that they may have found that fountain. While this may be a bit of a stretch, to say the least, the fact is that Botox does deliver some amazing results. 

There are many tell tale signs of aging such as gray hair, sun spots, and wrinkles. Crows feet are the lines and wrinkles that form on the outer edges of the eye area as a result of laughing or frowning. These fine lines may appear anywhere from the age of 20 and upwards. Some people are lucky enough not to get these lines until they are deep into their 30’s. For others, like myself, these lines start to appear from late 20’s to mid 30’s. Luckily for us, there is a remedy that will deliver a short term solution at a cost-effective price. 

How much does it cost to get Botox for crows feet

Let’s start with some facts. Botox for crow’s feet is not a medical procedure and is considered an elective cosmetic procedure. For this reason , chances that your health insurance will cover this procedure is very low. Having said that, the cost of having Botox for crows feet will vary greatly depending on the city and state that you live in as well as the amount of units that will be required. Some patients may not have as many wrinkles as others and as such may require fewer units of Botox to achieve the desired results. Having said that, you can expect to pay around $90 to $200 per visit. In addition, this is not a permanent solution. You may need to revisit your doctor for follow up treatments in order to maintain the results. 

Can Botox eliminate crow’s feet

Absolutely. Botox is an excellent alternative to correcting crow’s feet. This procedure may have a dramatic effect on deep lines and wrinkles around the eye area. The process works by relaxing the muscle and allowing the skin and muscle to return to their original place before the aging process. However, keep in mind, that Botox is not a permanent solution. It will yield results relatively quickly and effectively, but the results will need to be maintained through regular visits to the doctor. The results may only last for a minimum of two months and a maximum of four months. In addition, according to The Mayo Clinic Botox may even assist with chronic conditions such as migraines. 

Is Botox or fillers better for crow’s feet

In order to answer this question it is best to understand the difference between Botox and fillers. Botox is injected into the affected area. The Botox then relaxes the muscle under the skin and allows the skin and muscle to return to their previous position. It gives a more youthful, open-eyed appearance. Fillers are soft tissue filler that is injected into the skin at different depths to decrease facial wrinkles, create more facial volume, and in some cases alter the physical appearance of the facial features. Both Botox and fillers each come with advantages and disadvantages, and to tell the truth, they are not really used for the same thing. Botox can also be used as a preventative measure as many younger people seek to use Botox as a means to prevent premature aging of the skin. Botox is great for elevating the brow and opening up the eye area while fillers are primarily used to add more volume to the skin and create a more youthful appearance. Botox treats wrinkles while your face is moving making their appearance lessen while fillers lessen the appearance of wrinkles on the face when the face is not moving. Treatment time and the time frame for the results to last differs between Botox and fillers. Fillers create longer lasting results but also take longer to inject. However, when it comes to crows feet, Botox may be the better option.

What helps crows feet without Botox

There are various beauty creams on the market that promise to deliver great results when it comes to minimizing crow’s feet and other wrinkles. Retinols and retinoids are two extremely popular ingredients found in many beauty creams that deliver outstanding anti-aging results. These ingredients are known to stimulate cell regrowth and regeneration. This will dramatically alter the appearance of the skin surface and texture. The down side of this type of product in relation to Botox is that Botox is known to work much faster. The up side in this comparison is that over the longer period, Botox may be the more cost-effective, and least labor intensive approach if you take into account the hefty price tags that are now placed on some of the beauty creams on the market that contain these ingredients. In addition, the facial cream usually only lasts as long as it is being used. There are other alternatives that may help to achieve similar results to Botox. These include wearing sun protection, sleeping on silk, using skin tightening treatments, and micro needling to mention just a few.

Is 20 units of Botox enough for crows feet

Yes, 20 units of Botox may be sufficient for crow’s feet. But, this depends on the patient and how deep the crow’s feet are. According to the producer of the brand Botox, 10 to 12 units of Botox should be administered per eye. This means that between 20 and 24 units of Botox is required to treat both eyes. The producer of Botox, Allergan, advises cosmetic professionals to use about 20 units of Botox for frown lines. Therefore, 20 units may in fact be enough for some patients but not for all. Now, as mentioned several times in this article, the amount of Botox required will greatly depend on several factors such as the age of the patient, the amount of Botox required to rectify the problem, and the desired results that the patient hopes to achieve.

How do you get rid of deep crows feet

There are a plethora of solutions available on the market today that will address deep crow’s feet. This will depend on the budget and the desired results of the patient. As well as the time frame in which the patient would like to see results as some products and procedure may yield results much faster. For patients who do not want to be poked by a needle there are a variety of beauty creams on the market that contain ingredients to successfully combat crows feet. The results may be very slow though. Other alternative solutions to this pesky problem may include a chemical peel which will yield not only diminished wrinkles but also alter the texture of the skin and remove sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Derma fillers work in a similar fashion to Botox and will yield similar results as well. And, finally, there’s laser treatments.

Where do they inject Botox for crow’s feet

The doctor will use fine small needles to inject Botox directly into the area where the crow’s feet are. When the doctor is experienced then the pain, swelling, and bruising can be minimized simply by the technique that the doctor uses. In addition, since this is a very small area, the procedure should be relatively quick. Furthermore, the doctor performing these Botox shots will advise on topical anesthetic to help mitigate any pain experienced during the injections.

Can you stop Botox once you start

Yes. There is nothing wrong with stopping treatment after you stop. You may have had many years of Botox treatment and may decide that you no longer wish to receive Botox treatments. There are no harmful side effects that will occur from stopping the treatment and patients can stop treatment at any time they wish.

Does Botox ruin your face

Botox is seen as an alternative option to alleviating the problem of wrinkles. Anything that is being used in moderation is not harmful and will not ruin your appearance. Studies have confirmed this. It is merely a temporary paralyzing of the muscle nerve endings.

Are Botox injections expensive

Perhaps you have considered Botox before, but, if you are like me have avoided it due to the associated costs. The great news is that Botox really isn’t that expensive. Prices range from $10 to $20 per unit. And, depending on the area that you would like to get treated this may be relatively inexpensive.

Can Botox stop under eye wrinkles

Botox is an excellent resource for diminishing wrinkles around the eye area. As previously mentioned, though, this is not a permanent solution and will require repeat visits every four to six months, depending on the age of the candidate, and the desired results. If you are opposed to surgery and downtime as a result of surgery, then Botox may be the solution as there is no downtime associated with Botox for crow’s feet. Botox works by preventing nerve impulses. These nerve impulses cause muscles in the eye area to contract. Botox is injected into the upper third of the face. This area includes horizontal forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and the lines between the candidate’s brows. The injections may substantial diminish the wrinkles in this area, or, for many candidates, will completely erase all visible lines. Botox may lessen these visible lines and may even correct eyebrow and eyelid asymmetry. In a 2003 study, 19 candidates received Botox injections around the eye area. The findings of the study suggest that Botox may make the lower eye lid appear fuller and more plump. Keep in mind, though, that the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved Botox for use in this area.

Is 10 units of Botox enough for crows feet

Botox (botulinum toxin) is FDA-approved. It is produced by a company called Allergan. According to the company, 24 units of Botox should be administered for lateral canthal lines, or more commonly known as crow’s feet. During consultation, speak to the doctor about ingredients found in Botox. Some patients may be allergic to some of the ingredients. In addition, patients should disclose any nerve/muscle conditions, medical conditions, as well as any medications being taken by the patient at the time of consultation.

Why are my crows feet so bad

You may not always realize it, but you squint more often than you think. And, every time you smile or laugh, you move facial muscles, which may add to the formation of wrinkles. As we age, we loose elasticity in our skin. These two factors combined with natural facial expressions, free radicals, and hormone changes add to the deepening of facial wrinkles.

You’ve probably heard the old saying telling you to get more vitamin D. And, as such, you tend to spend more time outdoors. While sunlight in moderation is good for you, excessive UV exposure can cause damage to your skin and result in pre-mature aging by drying the skin out and causing harm to the cellular structure of your skin. This problem may be mitigated by wearing the proper sunglasses that block out UV rays and applying sun protection with added moisturizer. When applying moisturizer to the eye area, use the fourth finger on your hand to apply it as this will exert the least amount of pressure on the most sensitive part of your face, the skin around the eyes.

Another culprit of deepening crow’s feet is constant weight gain or loss. While this may have an effect on your entire body, certain areas are more prone to show damage, such as the gentle skin around the eye area. And as weight continues to fluctuate, the plumpness of the skin on the facial area, may not be able to bounce back, causing crow’s feet.

What age do you get crows feet

The development of crow’s feet will depend on several factors including hormones, sun exposure, genetics, and fluctuating weight. Not everyone will develop crow’s feet at the same age. But, according to WebMD, crow’s feet will start to appear on the face from your mid 20s. The collagen in your skin is responsible for its plumpness. When collagen is lost, wrinkles will start to appear. Experts indicate that the loss of collagen may actually start during the teenage years.

Botox is known for delivering excellent results, as can be seen by its widespread use, with zero downtime. Keep in mind that some patients may experience mild side-effects. It is important to disclose any previous surgeries as well as any underlying conditions before getting Botox injections.
