The tiny lines that spread from the corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet, are one of the first signs of aging. Since the skin around your eyes is so thin, these lines can develop in your early 30s, years before any deeper wrinkles or folds. At Purely Natural Medical Spa in Brooklyn, NY, we offer a non-invasive way to eliminate these crow’s feet, Xeomin brooklyn. Today, our cosmetic experts are discussing the applications of this rejuvenating treatment.
Can Xeomin Treat Crow’s Feet?
Xeomin brooklyn is most commonly used to tackle the deep frown lines that form between the eyebrows. However, it can also be used to treat cases of crow’s feet. Additionally, this injectable can be used to treat other moderate-to-severe dynamic wrinkles, including bunny lines on the nose and forehead folds. This injectable is so effective at eliminating crow’s feet, people turn to it when other neuromodulator treatments have failed.
In some cases, people use an alternative neuromodulator injectable for years. However, other neuromodulator injectables include binding proteins not present in Xeomin brooklyn. The problem with alternative neurotoxic protein injectables is, after several sessions, your immune system recognizes the extra binding proteins so quickly you can’t achieve your ideal results anymore.
Why Are Crow’s Feet So Frustrating?
Crow’s feet are notoriously frustrating. They are initially frustrating because they are often the first signs of aging to appear on your face. They may start out thin. However, they quickly deepen. If, over time, they do not become the deepest, most pronounced lines on your face, they come in second to frustrating frown lines. One reason crow’s feet get so deep is the skin around your eyes is very thin and fragile. Additionally, there are no oil glands in the area.
Due to the two aforementioned factors, when your skin ages and loses elasticity, it can’t bounce back like it could when you were younger. Although crow’s feet start as thin lines stretching away from the eyes’ outer corners, when left untreated, they deepen severely and meet your temples.
Why Do Crow’s Feet Occur?
There are several potential causes of crow’s feet. Usually, fine lines develop around the outer corners of your eyes due to repetitive muscle movements that occur daily. For example, the muscles beneath the skin can cause mild-to-moderate skin wrinkling due to repetitive smiling or squinting. Additionally, sleeping on your side can cause the skin on one side of your face to stretch and pull on your pillow.
Sun exposure can also lead to crow’s feet. Chronic unprotected sun exposure weathers your skin, causing a condition known as photoaging. Additionally, UV rays damage your skin cells by increasing the quantity of free radicals in your skin. This leads to premature skin aging. To help reduce the free radicals in your skin, you can include antioxidants in your skincare regimen, but you still need a professional muscle relaxing treatment to erase the lines.
How Can I Minimize My Risk of Developing Crow’s Feet in the Future?
There are a number of changes to your lifestyle you can make to minimize your risk of developing crow’s feet in the future. It is difficult to prevent the development of crow’s feet completely. However, you can minimize their severity by getting all of the nutrients your skin needs every day and remaining hydrated. Additionally, UV protective sunglasses and hats will reduce UV exposure around your eyes and minimize squinting.
Furthermore, you should wear UV protective skin cream and eye cream. This further reduces UV exposure around your eyes and ensures this skin does not age faster than it should. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will discuss your current lifestyle and skincare treatments. At that time, we can make recommendations on changes you should make, including cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing the area on a regular basis.
Do I Qualify for This Treatment?
If you are seeking this treatment to correct a cosmetic concern, you will probably qualify for this treatment if you are fairly healthy. It is FDA-approved for safety and is so safe it can be used to treat certain medical conditions in children between the ages of two and 17. That said, there are numerous signs you are a particularly good candidate for this neuromodulator injectable.
You Are Ready to Turn the Clock Back
Whether you have dynamic lines and wrinkles in several regions of your face or you are only worried about crow’s feet, this neuromodulator is the perfect solution for youthening your aesthetic. After your first treatment session, your face will look more relaxed and you will look years younger. Clients report they feel better about their overall aesthetic and more self-confident after a single session.
You Want to Combat the Initial Signs of Aging
In previous years, people sought this injectable because they were in serious need of professional skincare help. Today, more people are coming in at a younger age as they start to notice the first aging signs, such as crow’s feet. You may be the perfect candidate for this treatment if you only have mild-to-moderate lines around your eyes. The sooner you come in to relax the muscles causing you problems, the fewer problems you will have in the future.
You Are Looking for Convenience
We all want to look and feel our best. However, not all of us have the time, money or desire to undergo invasive anti-aging procedures. What’s great about this botulinum shot is it is quick, easy, comfortable and completed conveniently in a relaxing office.
You don’t need to be intubated and spend the night in a hospital. In fact, there is no downtime following this treatment at all. Schedule your injections during your lunch break and return to work without missing any time at all.
You Have Realistic Expectations About the Results
If you want to qualify for botulinum injections, it is very important you have realistic expectations about the results. These injections will make you look years younger. However, you won’t look 18 again. It is also important to approach this from an emotionally stable place for the right reasons. Don’t get anti-aging injections for anyone but yourself.
You Have Healthy Skin
Botulinum shots, when used for cosmetic purposes, are safe for adults regardless of skin tone, type or texture. Nevertheless, your skin should be healthy at the time you are considering treatment. It is not ideal to have swelling or a skin infection around the injection site.
If there is swelling or an infection around the targeted site, you should strongly consider delaying your treatment for a couple of weeks. Additionally, you should speak with your primary care physician if you wish to receive these injections but are pregnant, breastfeeding or have been diagnosed with a neurological disease.
You Have Developed a Resistance to Other Neuromodulators
Don’t despair if you have developed a resistance to other neuromodulators. This is a perfectly natural reaction due to the extra binding proteins used in those injectables. Due to the purity of Xeomin brooklyn, you don’t have to worry about developing a resistance to the treatment. We are happy to discuss your anti-aging options with you if you have used muscle-relaxing injectables in the past but are no longer enjoying the success you once enjoyed.
Your Wrinkles Are Worsened By Muscle Movement
Dynamic wrinkles benefit the most from botulinum injections. Dynamic wrinkles are defined as wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements, such as facial expressions, talking, drinking and eating. Static wrinkles are wrinkles caused by an extreme loss of volume in the affected area. Like dynamic wrinkles, static wrinkles can also be deepened by prolonged unprotected sun exposure.
You Have Other Aesthetic Concerns That Can Be Improved By These Injections
Although botulinum injections are most commonly used to erase lines, wrinkles and folds, they can also be used to address other aesthetic issues. For example, they may be used to liven up a drooping smile. They may also be used to treat gummy smiles and soften the contours of the jawline.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
The treatment process begins with scheduling an initial consultation about the botulinum injections. During this first meeting, we will discuss the pharmaceuticals you are taking, talk about your medical history and review the results you would like to get out of this treatment.
Once we have a clear understanding of the quality of your skin and the goals you would like to achieve, we will create a treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns. After that, you simply need to schedule your treatment session.
What to Expect During Your Injection Session
We will start your injection session off with a gentle cleanser. Then, we will use a marker to note the most effective injection sites for achieving your goals. After that, we will use an extremely fine needle to inject the botulinum toxin. You may need two or three injections to get the appropriate dose in the targeted area.
The entire injection process takes mere minutes. Since the needle we use is so fine, you will feel a slight pressure as the needle punctures your dermis but you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may also inject other anti-aging products, such as Juvederm or Restylane, to erase wrinkles caused by volume loss.
What to Expect After Your Treatment Session
Immediately after your injections are over, you should refrain from rubbing the injection site. However, you may apply cosmetics, including makeup and moisturizer, gently.
When You Can Expect to See Your Results
Typically, the results of these injections emerge three to five days after the session. The results aren’t immediate because the injectable needs time to settle into the skin deeply. However, the full results will not be visible for roughly 10 days. It takes this long to see the final treatment results because it takes a while for your skin to smooth out once the muscles causing the wrinkles have relaxed.
