Crows feet can be a very positive attribute as they are the result of years of smiling. However crows feet can get to the point where they are unnecessarily ageing. At this stage the judicious use of Botox® can soften the lines by relaxing the muscles in this area without completely freezing the smile. We may need to use dermal fillers as well if crows feet are particularly stubborn. Fillers provide volume under the line to soften them.
The key is to achieve a natural result by precisely placing the Botox® for maximum positive effect. This requires experience and Palm Clinic doctors have this in spades having been amongst the first doctors to use Botox® Cosmetic in New Zealand 15 years ago. Individual results may vary.
Crows feet in men can be softened in such a way that it looks very natural. Crows feet in men are normal and can be quite prominent in those who have had a lot of sun exposure (squinting) or enjoyed a lifetime of laughter. Sometimes though, the crows feet can be prematurely ageing and are easily softened (rather than eliminated) by Botox® and/or Dermal Fillers in such a way that it looks very natural.
