Crow's feet can leave people looking much older than they really are, which is why so many patients who experience crow's feet come to the practice of Dr. William C. Cohen. He has achieved excellent skin care and facial rejuvenation results, making his practice a leader in facial aesthetics in Orange County, using injectables such as BOTOX cosmetic to reduce wrinkles and lines as well as the latest in light and laser technologies. Let's consider crow's feet right now and how they can be treated.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of safe laser light technology to stimulate the growth of collagen as well as newer, fresher, and tighter skin. This helps reduce wrinkles and make patients look much, much younger in the process.
Chemical peels will remove the surface layer of your skin using a safe and controlled acidic solution. Once this is done, a healthy lower layer of skin will be revealed, which is more refreshed and free from major wrinkles. Different levels/degrees of peel are available depending on the needs of the patient.
Microdermabrasion involves the careful use of small crystals to help remove the topmost layer of skin and reveal a healthier lower layer of skin that's softer, smoother, and more rejuvenated.
BOTOX injections are among one of the most popular non-surgical facial treatments out there today. The BOTOX cosmetic solution will freeze muscles in the injection site, which prevents them from agitating the skin and producing wrinkles. By doing this, patients will have faces that are more youthful in appearance. The results will last for several months, and repeat BOTOX injections can be performed in order to repeat and prolong the benefits.
Are there any surgical options for treating crow's feet?
Interesting enough, there are very few surgical options for crow's feet that prove to be that beneficial. For the most part, the best and most effective treatments are non-surgical skin care procedures. This is good in some ways in that none of the procedures that have been listed above involve any sort of downtime or scarring.
