Botox Cosmetic Helps Reduce The Look of Crow’s Feet

Getting Botox Edmonton for crow’s feet is a common inquiry at Edmonton Dermatology. Crow’s Feet are also known as smile lines. This is because when you smile your cheek moves upwards, causing your eyes to squint slightly. This creases the skin around the eye. The reason why many want to eliminate these lines, is because they feel that these lines make them look much older than they are.



Botox/ Dysport is used to retrain the muscles of the face that are used for expression. With time, the constant muscle movement causes creasing on the skin and eventually fine lines and wrinkles. When you smile the muscles move upwards, pulling and creasing the skin to form straight lines at the outer part of the eye, giving the appearance of thin crow’s feet. Botox/ Dysport is injected into these muscles to retrain the muscle not to move so aggressively to cause skin creasing.


What are the benefits of Neuromodulators?

The benefit of Botox/Dysport according to Edmonton Dermatology, is to retrain muscles. The injections train the muscles to move less, so that they do not crease the skin. Without the skin creasing, the look of visible fine lines are greatly reduced in the eye area. After even one treatment of Botox Edmonton for crow’s feet, you may notice a softening of the frown lines. And with repeated injections, the lines will slowly lessen or fade away.

A risk to Botox/Dysport when treating crow’s feet is eyelid drooping. This occurs when the Botox/Dysport is injected too close to the eyelid that causes the eyelid to be lower then normal, almost like your eyes are heavy when you’re tired. To avoid this, Edmonton Dermatology ensures proper markings of appropriate injection points and uses proper injection techniques to minimize this risk.

A common misunderstanding of Botox/Dysport is that it is dangerous because it is a toxin. The molecules of Botox/Dysport are medically engineered to mimic molecules that are naturally in our body. These molecules slow down the muscles ability to contract/move. Botox Edmonton allows for the effects of less movement to happen for a longer time. Also, Botox/ Dysport also lasts for three to four months making it a non-permanent treatment according to Edmonton Dermatology.
