Crow’s feet are a sign of a life well-lived — they can be caused by facial expressions such as smiling and laughing — but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re a wanted change to the face. In fact, many Beverly Hills patients are unhappy with how their crow’s feet make them look older and less vibrant. With the help of Dr. Nima, patients can undergo treatment to eliminate these telltale wrinkles at the corner of the eyes.
What Causes Crow’s Feet?
The skin around the eyes is some of the thinnest on the face, making it highly susceptible to wrinkling. As a person ages, it’s natural for them to start seeing fine lines around the corners of their eyes because of a loss of elastin and collagen. However, there can be a few other causes of crow’s feet, including:
- Excessive exposure to the sun, especially sunburn.
- Free radicals, which are tiny particles that can damage skin cells.
- Changes in hormone levels, which can happen due to age or another medical condition.
Types of Crow’s Feet Treatments and Their Benefits
There are many ways Dr. Nima can help his Beverly Hills patients overcome their crow’s feet. One of the most effective options is Botox or Dysport, which are both injectable solutions that paralyze the muscles underneath the skin. Once these muscles relax, tension in the face is relieved, which helps the skin look smoother and less wrinkled. Because these are non-invasive, have no downtime, and don’t affect how a person emotes, they’re an excellent option for most patients.
Another option is a chemical peel, which works by helping the skin shed its top layer to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. These peels are often completed in a series of three and have no downtime afterward.
Dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, and even microneedling are also great options for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, and these all have fast and effective results.
Which Crow’s Feet Treatment Is Right for Me?
It can be tricky to know which crow’s feet treatment is most effective, which is why Dr. Nima offers a consultation for all new patients. At this initial visit, he will take a look at the patient’s concerns, as well as their medical history, and then decide which treatment or combination of treatments would work best. Patients will never have to decide on their own which treatment to go with.
What Does Crow’s Feet Treatment Cost?
Because there are so many treatments available for crow’s feet, it’s impossible to quote an accurate price without seeing the patient first. After the initial consultation, Dr. Nima will have a much better idea of what the patient wants, so he’ll be able to put together a full estimate then. Patients should keep in mind that we partner with CareCredit to make paying for treatment easier.
