Botox treatment can be ideal for patients seeking to mitigate facial signs of aging in a non-surgical manner. The FDA approved this med spa treatment in 2002 for cosmetically reducing frown lines on the forehead. In 2013, Botox received FDA approval for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet.
Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by the kind board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides Botox to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations across this region of Florida.
Reduction of Crow’s Feet with Botox
Crow’s feet, also known as lateral canthal lines, describe the fine lines and wrinkles that are visible on the far outside eye corners. These wrinkles can give the eyes a tired appearance making the person look older than their years.
The FDA has officially approved Botox med spa treatment for the reduction of lateral canthal lines around the eyes. Botox can help mitigate the appearance of crow’s feet offering a rested, revitalized and more youthful look to the eyes.
Botox Study for Crow’s Feet Reduction
Allergan Inc., the manufacturer of Botox, conducted extensive tests and research to showcase the efficacy of this treatment in eliminating crow’s feet after which Botox received FDA approval for use in the treatment of these lines. Allergan carried out a significant study involving over 1,000 adult participants who were segregated into two groups.
While one group comprising 833 participants received Botox treatment for crow’s feet, the other group did not receive any treatment. The group that was treated with Botox displayed a major reduction in crow’s feet appearance in comparison to the group that did not receive treatment.
Botox for the Treatment of Frown Lines
Frown lines can make a person appear tensed or angry. Botox can help reduce the appearance of these frown lines effectively. The removal of frown lines between the brows can make an individual appear more rested and approachable at work or during social interactions.
Botox cosmetic treatment relaxes facial muscles that lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines and prevents these lines from becoming more profound. The procedure takes only around 10 minutes and involves injecting a few fine gauge injections into the muscles that require treatment.
Administering Botox in an art where the best and most natural looking outcomes need placing the injections in the correct muscles and ideal dose by a well-qualified doctor. The sites that are commonly treated are the frown lines (grumpy lines), the ‘crow’s feet’ in the outer corners of the eyes, and the horizontal ‘worry’ lines.
How does Botox Work?
The neurotoxin known as Botulinum has a distinct property that leads to an obstruction of communication between the muscle and nerve when injected into the muscle in the appropriate quantity. This treatment is non-invasive. The Botox treatment provider uses tiny needles to inject it directed into the overactive muscle that is causing the wrinkle formation.
Upon reaching the muscle, the chemical stops the muscle’s communication with the nervous system, paralyzing it temporarily. Established Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for Botox.
