Ask Cheryl: Crow’s Feet

Q: Is there anything I can do to eliminate crow’s feet at the side of my eyes

A: Most of us will develop crow’s feet lines at the outside corners of our ees as of result of squinting our eyes in the sun or to see better.  The medical term for these common wrinkles is lateral canthal lines.

Crow’s feet can be removed with surgery or with laser skin resurfacing.  However many people prefer a less invasive treatment.  Botox and other botulium toxins can be injected into the area around the side of the eyes to temporarily improve or eliminate the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines.  The facial muscles that create those wrinkles are injected, causing the muscles to relax and lines to disappear.

The effect of treatment will probably last three to six months and you look younger and more rested.  Of course, Botox can also be used to treat forehead lines and frown lines between your brows.
