How Botox Reduces Crow’s Feet and Fine Lines Around My Eyes

As we age, crow’s feet and other fine lines around the eyes are a common development. Luckily, there are many wonderful options to pursue that can help reduce these lines, helping our patients achieve their desired appearance. Injectables and fillers such as Botox and other similar products are a fantastic, stress-free option to explore if you are interested in restoring a youthful appearance.

Botox is a prescription medication that can be injected into muscles around the eyes. Because the treatment is a muscle relaxant, meaning they stop muscles from contracting, these injections are very effective in temporarily reducing wrinkles and smoothing skin out in the area of injection. The treatment only takes a few minutes, and it can last for months before a follow-up is required, making it a low-maintenance way to keep your skin wrinkle-free.

Even if Botox is not the perfect choice for you, a little known fact is that there are actually four FDA-approved neuromodulators which can all help reduce frown lines. Along with Botox, also included in the list are Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin… and at Silk Vision and Surgical Center, we use them all! This means that we have all the tools available to provide you and your face with the optimal care, following a meticulously-crafted customized treatment plan.

If you are interested in learning more about these options and determining which is right for you, please call us at Silk Vision and Surgical Center at (703) 876-9700 for more information or schedule a consultation with Dr. Rajjoub. We look forward to meeting you!
