Got Crow's Feet? 2 Tips To Make Them Look Better

Crow's feet are common as you get older. These wrinkles can start to appear over time as this area wrinkles up when you smile. Fortunately, there are things you can do to make these wrinkles look much better, two of which are listed below.


Botox is one option you have to help with these wrinkles. Botox is a chemical that paralyzes the muscles. Once this happens, the wrinkles can relax and may go away completely or be greatly diminished. You can get this procedure done in a dermatologist's office and go home as soon as it is finished. The doctor injects the area with the Botox, which feels like a pinprick. The needle they use is generally small, so it is not really painful for many people. If you are worried or scared of needles the dermatologist can apply a topical anesthetic to the site before they do the injection.

The dermatologist will tell you about aftercare, which generally means staying out of the sun for a few days and not touching the area where you had the injections. You will not see results immediately, but they will appear slowly over time. The doctor can tell how long you can expect the Botox to last. After this, you will need to go back for more injections to keep the wrinkles away. 

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is an intense procedure, and you will be given pain medication before the treatment. You may even go to a hospital and be put under anesthesia. The doctor uses a laser that heats up your skin, which then removes several layers of your skin. This also helps with collagen production, which can aid in wrinkle removal and help you heal faster. After the treatment, the doctor will put a heavy cream on the area or wrap the area in dressing for a few days. It may take several weeks for you to completely heal. Many people like resurfacing because it can last many years.

You can have only your eye area done but if you have wrinkles in other areas of your face, consider having your entire face resurfaced. Your face will become very red if you do this, so this would be a good time to take a couple of weeks off from work. 

A dermatologist can give you more information about these two treatments, as well as other options available for you.
