Crows feet or 'smile lines' are formed at the corners of our eyes, and these lines are associated with our positive emotions and happiness.
Due to the breakdown of proteins, collagen, and elastin our smile lines progressively become more deep-set, resulting in being present when the facial muscles are relaxed, giving an aged or weathered appearance.
Your injecting practitioner will take into consideration your aesthetic desires while aiming to soften lines rather than 'freeze', maintaining a controlled movement and leaving positive expression and happiness when smiling.
How does the treatment work?
Like any area being treated your injecting practitioner will carry out an in-depth consult to determine your aesthetic desires, followed by assessing muscle strength and prescribing an anti-wrinkle dose according to your individual needs.
Outcomes of the treatment will reach effect by relaxing the muscle or muscle group within 3-14 days and will continue to show results between 2-4 months, depending on dosage and treatment preferences.
Crows feet or smile lines are one of the most common areas of concern.
Once assessed and treatment intention is established the area is prepped for the simple procedure. Small insulin needles are used to administer the prescribed dose of anti-wrinkle. Treatment is precise yet extremely quick and more than tolerable. Numbing cream is never required however an application of ice prior to treatment can be applied upon request for comfort.
Bruising is uncommon but possible and can be camouflaged using mineral concealer. This is a ‘lunch time’ treatment and you can return to work immediately.
Keeping balance and structure we compliment this area with additional treatment of frown lines.
What it costs
Treatment costs vary from patient to patient. When determining cost we calculate dosage per unit. Dosage is estimated through factors such as desired outcome, muscle strength and even longevity of the effects. All considerations and estimates are communicated prior to treatment within consultation. On an average basis this treatment can vary from $192-$320.
