Facial wrinkles are very common due to repeated use of facial muscles while giving facial expressions. Facial wrinkles are very common in 30s and later on but sometime they appear earlier in our life. These are wrinkles mostly seen on sides of our eyes (crow feet or lateral canthal lines), on forehead (forehead lines), on the sides of nose (bunny lines), above the lips (lip lines, smokers lines, lipstick lines) & between the eyebrows (line of 11, frown lines, glabellar lines).
These wrinkles are best treated with Botox injections. Botox is a chemical which relaxes the muscles and thus smooth out the wrinkles. It is also known as botulinum toxin. Though it is a toxin, it does not have toxic harmful effects in our body. Actually while treating these wrinkles we use very less quantity of botulinum toxin which does not give rise to toxic effects. Usually we inject less than 100 units of Botox for cosmetic treatments. Botox is most common cosmetic treatment in the world. Botox injection is known as lunch hour procedure as it can be done in few minutes and there is no downtime most of the time. Botox injection is almost painless. Rarely we use topical anaesthesia for Botox injection.
Botox is a wonderful treatment modality for wrinkles. There are various wrinkles on face that appear with ageing. One of them is Crow Feet or lateral canthus lines that is visible on the outer sides of corners of eyes. These wrinkles become prominent when we smile or laugh. Crow feet become visible due to repeated use of muscles when we smile and laugh. Over the period muscles on the outer sides of eyes get enlarged and skin in this area start wrinkling.
Botox or Botulinum Toxin is a very safe and effective procedure to treat crow feet wrinkles. Around 15-20 Units of botox is required to treat Crow Feet wrinkles. Botox is injected at 3-5 points on each sides of eyes. The results of Botox injection treatment are apparent in 7 days and reach to the maximum in 2 weeks. Results usually last for 3 months but many times results may last longer. There is no downtime after botox injection or botox wrinkle treatment ie you can go to work or office immediately after botox treatment.
