Can Botox® Treat Crow's Feet?
Crow’s feet are a common sign of aging, and one of the most frustrating skin issues to encounter. It is caused by a reduction in collagen and elastin production, which is why most people need a helping hand to reverse the damage and restore their youthful glow. The Baltic Beauty Centre offers various procedures to treat this problem, but is Botox® is a smart choice?
Botox® Treatment Areas
Botox® is widely regarded as the #1 cosmetic treatment for reversing the signs of aging, tackling wrinkles and fine lines that surface over time. Often lasting for six months before top-up appointments are needed, they offer a semi-permanent solution to a range of problems to boost your appearance, confidence, and general wellness.
As well as cosmetic incentives, they can also be used to help manage issues like arthritis. The most common anatomical treatment areas for Botox® injections are;
- Forehead lines,
- Crow’s feet,
- Frown lines,
- Bunny lines,
- Marionette lines,
- Smoker’s lines,
- Chin dents.
Crow’s feet, otherwise known as Lateral Orbital Lines, are one of the most frequently treated areas.
Neurotoxins are a group of toxins that attack tissue cells. While they sound dangerous, they can be used to impact muscles to deliver semi-permanent benefits for cosmetic and health reasons. The Baltic Beauty Centre handles each of the three primary neurotoxin solutions, including Botox®.
Botox® is the world’s best-known neurotoxin. It works on the concept of relaxing the muscles of the treatment area to make wrinkles and fine lines become less visible in as little as 72 hours. Botox® injections use botulinum toxin A and additional protective proteins. In relation to crow’s feet, the injections are made just under the skin to relax the muscles around the eyes, which reduces the visibility of the fine lines in this anatomical region.

Xeomin® neurotoxins are very similar to Botox® injections and can be used to treat a similar list of imperfections. However, they use botulinum toxin A exclusively. While this does slow the speed of their impact and can change the storage requirements, the injectables are capable of delivering great results. It should be noted that they are less prone to antibodies.
Dysport® is another neurotoxin solution that can deliver noticeable results in as little as 24 hours. They are designed predominantly with crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles in mind.
Botulinum neurotoxin injections are an FDA-approved solution and boast popularity for a wide range of reasons. The incentives often cited by patients for taking this route to skin rejuvenation are;
- It’s safer and less invasive than surgery.
- The results are seen in minimal time.
- Localized injections allow for spot targeting.
- The results last for up to six months.
- Minimal downtime is required.
The fact that neurotoxins can be used multiple times during a lifetime is another source of confidence for many patients and future patients alike.
