The appearance of crow’s feet can be extremely stressful for people because they’re the first prominent wrinkles to appear on the face. These are the small horizontal wrinkles or fine lines next to the eyes — you can also call them “smile lines” because they’re more pronounced when you smile or grin. If you’re looking to address crow’s feet in Crescent Springs, Covington, or Cincinnati you’ve come to the right place.

What Causes Crow's Feet

Crow’s feet belong to a category of wrinkles known as dynamic wrinkles — these are wrinkles formed because of the overuse of facial muscles. When you’re young, crow’s feet only appear around your eyes while smiling, squinting, or grinning. When you stop producing those expressions, the fine lines fade away naturally.

But as you grow older, the underlying facial muscles used for smiling become more pronounced, making the fine lines stay etched on your face even at rest. This is similar to how regular workouts can make other muscles in your body grow larger and more visible. Crow’s feet appear on your face because of the overuse of facial muscles for smiling and squinting.

Your Crow's Feet Treatment Options

Unique Clinical Aesthetics MedSpa offers three incredibly effective neurotoxin injections to suppress crow’s feet in Crescent Springs — Xeomin, Jeuveau, and Botox. These belong to a category of cosmetic injectables known as neuromodulators, made of the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. After selecting the ideal neurotoxin for you, Dr. Jarrell injects it into targeted locations on your face to soften and suppress the crow’s feet.

Neuromodulators block the transmission of signals from nerves to the targeted muscles, thereby minimizing muscular contractions. As such, when the neurotoxins are injected into regions around the crow’s feet, they prevent the associated muscles from contracting, thereby smoothing the crow’s feet. The results gradually appear within 2 weeks and last for up to 4 to 6 months, following which you will need maintenance treatments.
