Got Crow's Feet? 3 Treatments That Can Help

by Chester Williams

If you have wrinkles around your eyes this is known as crow's feet. Smiling throughout the years is what makes these wrinkles appear once elasticity starts breaking down. Fortunately, there are things you can do to treat and conceal these wrinkles, two of which are listed below.


Botox is commonly used to treat crow's feet. With this treatment, the dermatologist injects Botox into the wrinkled area. The Botox then freezes the muscles causing the wrinkles to relax. Once this happens the wrinkles will disappear or will be greatly diminished.

The doctor may use a numbing agent at the injection site. You have this procedure done in the doctor's office and you go home the same day. It will generally not take long if you are only getting injections around your eyes. 

The doctor will tell you not to touch the area and not wash your face for the first 24 hours. You will start seeing the results appear a little at a time and will see the full results in a couple of weeks. Botox injections do not last forever, and you will need to come back to have the treatment done again. The results may last a few months or up to a year. 

Chemical Peel

Another option you have is getting a chemical peel. With this treatment, a chemical solution is put on your face. The solution will be left on for a certain amount of time depending on the type of chemical peel you choose. 

There are three types of chemical peels you can choose from. The first type is much less evasive and can be done by aestheticians. This is because this type only removes the first layer of skin. This will work well if your crow's feet are not deep but instead have just first appeared around your eyes. You will feel very little pain with this type of peel and will not have a lot of redness on your face when it is finished. You should have this type of peel done every few weeks.

The second type of chemical peel is known as the medium depth peel. This type removes not only the first layer of your skin but also the second.  This type is much more painful, and you will have red skin that will take time to go away.

The third type of chemical peel goes the deepest and can be very painful. Because of this the doctor gives you an anesthetic and puts an anesthetic on your skin to help reduce pain. Your skin will also be very red for a couple of weeks and tender to touch. This type is the best to choose to remove wrinkles, however.  The main benefit of choosing this is it will last for years.

About Me

Updating Your Look

A few months ago, I realized that I wanted to look a little bit younger. I got a job as a marketing representative, so I found myself traveling from place to place to sell our company's products and services. However, my older look seemed to be holding me back from communicating effectively with the younger crowd. To correct this problem, I started investigating plastic surgery, and I was really impressed with how many procedures were out there that could improve my appearance. I was able to completely overhaul my look by going through and undergoing a few procedures, and now I feel great. This blog is all about updating your look with plastic surgery.
