Crow’s feet anti-wrinkle injections Overview



Those radiating lines that appear at the outer corners of your eyes when you smile or squint are called crow's feet.

We offer the latest Botox treatments to smooth away crow's feet for a rejuvenated look.

What Are Crow's Feet?

Crow's feet, known medically as rhytids or lateral canthal lines, refer to the fine lines and wrinkles that develop over time from repeated muscle contractions around the eye area. There are two main types:

Dynamic Crow's Feet: These are the temporary wrinkles that appear when making expressions like squinting or smiling. They result from the orbicularis oculi muscle repeatedly contracting.

Static Crow's Feet: These are the etched, stubborn lines that remain visible even when your face is completely relaxed. They form as the skin loses elasticity over many years of facial movements

How is Crow's Feet Caused?

Crow's feet are an inevitable part of the aging process, caused by a combination of repetitive muscle contractions over time and the natural loss of skin resilience. As we grow older, our bodies gradually produce less collagen and elastin, the proteins that allow skin to stretch and snap back to its original smooth appearance. This decrease in skin elasticity means wrinkles become progressively more carved in instead of immediately rebounding.

While some crow's feet development is unavoidable as we age, certain environmental and lifestyle factors can significantly accelerate or worsen their formation:

  • Overexposure to UV radiation from the sun
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Dehydration and poor nutrition
  • Excessive squinting or frowning
  • Genetic factors

Why Choose Anti-Wrinkle Crow's Feet Injections in Texas?

When it comes to treating crow's feet wrinkles, Botox is a leading non-surgical solution to consider. This neuromodulator offers a two-pronged approach - it temporarily relaxes the facial muscles behind dynamic wrinkles while also smoothing and tightening the skin in areas with static wrinkles. The end result is a softer, more refreshed, and youthful-looking appearance around the eyes.

How Botox for Crow's Feet Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Works

During your Botox crow's feet eyes treatment, our medical professional will precisely target and deliver the purified botulinum toxin into the orbicularis oculi muscle that circles the eye. These expert injections temporarily block the release of acetylcholine, the chemical messenger that stimulates muscle movement in that area.

By stopping muscle contractions, the overlying skin can gradually smooth out over 1-2 weeks as the Botox takes effect. For static wrinkles, Botox causes the facial muscles to relax their constant pull, allowing the skin to lie smoother and look slightly tighter in those areas over 2-4 weeks.

The Botox Crow's Feet Treatment Process

Your journey begins with an in-depth consultation with one of our board-certified medical professionals. This appointment allows them to closely evaluate your areas of concern, facial anatomy, and wrinkling patterns up close. They will also discuss what you want so that you have realistic expectations about the procedure.

Together, you will determine the best crow's feet eyes treatment plan tailored specifically for you, mapping out the precise injection sites and dosage of Botox needed to achieve optimal results.


No extensive preparation is required before your Botox appointment. However, it is best to avoid alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinners for 1 week before the treatment. This will minimize potential bruising or bleeding at injection sites.

You should arrive at your appointment with a clean face, free of any makeup, moisturizers, or other products. Doing so ensures the medical professional can see your muscle movements when evaluating your treatment areas.


When you arrive for your Botox injection appointment, your medical professional will begin by thoroughly cleansing the crow's feet treatment areas. They may then apply a cold compress or topical numbing solution to the injection sites to reduce potential discomfort, though these injections only feel like a minor pinching sensation to most patients.

Using an incredibly fine needle, your clinician will then carefully inject a strategically dosed amount of Botox into the muscles that cause Crow's feet wrinkles. They will likely inject the solution several times in the area surrounding the outer eyes, specifically in the orbicularis oculi muscle.

The entire process takes about 10-15 minutes, after which you can immediately continue with all other normal daily activities. No downtime or recuperation period is required.


While there is minimal aftercare required following Botox injections for crow's feet, we recommend not rubbing or massaging the treated areas for at least 12-24 hours after your appointment. This enables the muscles to fully absorb the Botox. You should also avoid doing strenuous exercise during this immediate period, as it can cause the product to move into unintended areas.

Some minor swelling, redness, or bruising may occur surrounding injection sites, but these temporary side effects will fade completely within a few days. Your medical professional will give you detailed instructions on this.
