Crows Feet (laugh lines)


The eyes are the window to the soul. It has the highest cosmetic value on our face. When we talk to

another person, we often various make eye contacts throughout the conversation, making the other

person visually focuses on your eyes.


When we are cheerful, happy and positive, we raise our eyebrows, the levator muscle tightens which

then causes a slight lifting of the eyelash. Muscle relaxant treatment on the crows feet can have

cause a significant improvement to early drooping of the outer corner of the eyelid, making your

eyes look more open and brighter. Although, treatment on this area result in extremely high

satisfaction rate amongst most patients, there are limitations to the ‘brow lifting’ effect that this

treatment can offer. This depends on the amount of excess skin on the eyelid and the functioning of

the levator muscle. In some cases, a surgical eye rejuvenation/blepharoplasty, correction of the

levator muscle (ptosis), and/or a surgical forehead lift will need to be considered to achieve a higher

satisfaction result for the patient.


Depending on dosage used and frequency of treatment, an overwhelmingly majority of the cases,

patients feedback to have brighter, more opened eyes, and most importantly, the disappearance or

significant softening of the laugh lines/wrinkle in that area.


It is important to point out that we are all individuals, although there are some guidelines on

dosage(amount of medication needed), we find that there could be a significant difference from

patient to patient. Dosage, frequency and longevity of treatment can vary. A normal to higher

dosage infrequently (every 3-4 months) can suit many people, others experience a better result from

having a lower dosage more frequently. Some anatomist have also lectured on the long-term

benefits of muscle relaxant treatment, basically, viewing it as a ‘prevention’ as well as a short-term

‘treatment’ for wrinkles. Please book in for a face to face consultation with one of our practitioners

for a personalised assessment.
