Have Wrinkles around Your Eyes? 2 Treatment Options to Help Diminish Them

Posted on: 23 September 2021

It is common to develop wrinkles around your eyes, often called crow's feet, as you age but there are treatment options to make these wrinkles diminish. Below are three of these treatment options so you can decide what would work best for you. 

1. Botox

Botox injections work by temporarily contracting the muscles around your eyes which results in the muscles become paralyzed. The results will generally last around three to four months and then you return for more injections. How long they last will depend on how deep the wrinkles are and how many wrinkles you have around your eyes. 

The Botox is injected into the wrinkled area. You may receive more than one injection depending on how many wrinkles you have around your eyes. You may have pain or slight bruising where you are injected but this goes away within a few hours. You will start to see results from the injection in about one to two weeks. You then treat your skin the same as you normally do when it comes to cleansing. The dermatologist that you go to can give you more information about Botox injections.

2. Fillers

Another treatment option you have is fillers, which are hyaluronic-based. The filler works by plumping up the skin which causes the wrinkles to disappear. The filler comes in different consistencies. What the doctor will use will depend on the type of wrinkles you have. For example, a low consistency will be used if you only have fine lines around your eyes and a higher consistency will be used if your wrinkles are deeper. You will see results from the fillers within a few days in most cases. 

You have acid in your body and this acid is much like the hyaluronic acid that is used in the fillers. Because these fillers are considered a more natural treatment. There are different types of fillers that can be used and what the doctor chooses will depend on the results you want to see. The doctor can customize the fillers to ensure you have a natural look with the results. The fillers are injected into your skin, and you may have slight redness or bruising after the procedure that will go away in a few days. 

To learn more, contact a doctor near you. The doctor that you go to may have other treatment options available. Ask about wrinkle treatment options like chemical peels, lasers, and surgery.
