Cosmetic injections for crows feet ( eye area smile lines )
At What age should you consider treatment for crows feet – below or over 30?
Careful application of Botox™ around the eye muscle helps to relax this area and reduce those lines around your eyes that are a tell tale sign of ageing.
Between the ages of about 18 — 25 we would say that you may not need Botox™ yet, even if you think you do. Some Doctors are even reluctant to treat those under 25, but do agree that some light Botox™ may be necessary around 27 or 28 when fine lines are beginning to show on your resting face.
It is understandable to want to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible because, at the end of the day, we all want that. But before jumping into Botox™, you should consider your daily skincare routine as this is vital. Sun damage is one of the main causes of premature skin ageing and so it is essential that you make the best use of products that contain a good SPF. Establishing a strong skincare routine can maintain the condition of your skin for years to come.
Those of you in your 30’s may start to think about a light application of “Baby Botox™” for your crows feet, just to give you that boost of help you need to fight off those fine expression lines that may be starting to set in. At this age, it is also likely that you may prevent the depth of crows feet later on, so more of a preventative effect.
Your early 40’s are usually the optimum time to now take advantage of Botox™ if you need it for crows feet. You may never need Botox™ if you have maintained quality sun protection, a good skincare routine and a healthy lifestyle. This includes a well balanced diet and refraining from smoking and excessive drinking.
For those of you already in deep with your wrinkles at this point or over 50, I would advise a discussion with a well experienced cosmetic doctor as you may instead need fillers rather than Botox™ at this point, or if they have already appeared then you will benefit more from a combination of treatments in order to even out the texture of your skin.
If you are concerned with crows feet and are unsure of your options, asking a reputable and experienced doctor for their advice rather than making rash decisions on your own can be very helpful. They can point you in the best direction depending on your individual wants and needs.
