Botox® or botulinum toxin injection
Botox® injections aim to decrease wrinkles and fine lines at rest and not freeze the face. The facial expressions are retained after treatment carried out correctly, thus producing a natural result.
The eye area is a key part of the face and our eyes are the seat of our emotions. Due to the structure of the surrounding skin, the eyes are often the first to bear the brunt of skin aging or our lifestyle. Why? Mainly because this area is under a lot of strain and the skin around the eye is among the finest and most delicate of the body. It is, therefore, more fragile and more rapidly affected by skin aging and free radicals.
So, the expression wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes are among the first to set in. Depending on the way we express our emotions but also the anatomy and the musculature of our face, these famous wrinkles, called crow’s feet, will be more or less visible.
Located at the outer corner of the eye, the crow’s feet wrinkles look like a small fan. With aging, the skin around the eye loses its elasticity and is also naturally less rich in fat cells so it dries out very quickly making it more susceptible to wrinkles. Crow’s feet develop due to the loss of collagen and elastic tissue in our skin, an inevitable result of skin aging. The formation of free radicals due to the sun and pollution can worsen the effects of aging. Wrinkles can also appear under the eyes when we contract this area when smiling and laughing a lot. With aging, the lines become deeper and longer, giving a tired, less youthful appearance.
Should we stop laughing then? No, of course not.
