What are crows' feet?
Above and beyond seeing the world around us, we use our eyes so much in order to form all kinds of expressions. Over time, movements such as squinting, laughing, and smiling causes lines and creases to form at the corners of the eyes. Because of the shape of these wrinkles we commonly refer to them as ‘crow’s-feet’.
In our younger days the wrinkles that form at the sides of the eyes disappear when we relax our eyes and face but as we get older these lines start to appear even when our face is relaxed and rested. This is when we start to show our age and years of hard work and stress around our eye area.
Crows’ feet treatment using anti-ageing injections allow us to restore a more youthful look and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at the corners of the eyes.

How does crows' feet treatment work?
Injectable treatment for lines around the eyes
Before considering any treatment, we arrange a free consultation with one of our experienced clinicians. This will include a full assessment of your face and diagnosis of the key issues. Our clinician will then recommend whether treatment is appropriate and if so, which course of action is best for you.
There are a number of treatment options that may be considered, including cosmetic injections. The presence of lines and fine wrinkles at the side of the eyes are can be improved almost instantaneously with a few small injections. When treated at the hands of an experienced SkinViva aesthetic medical professionals, the effect is that the lines are significantly reduced or will disappear completely. The effect is temporary but you can expect results to last 3 to 4 months before further treatment is recommended.

Got a Question?
BOTOX® can also be used to lift eyebrows and improve other areas of concern on the face.
Our clinician will fully assess your face and discuss your concerns. If they agree treatment is appropriate, they'll then explain the treatment options.
You can usually have the injectable treatment at the same appointment as the consultation but there's no pressure to do so unless you are fully ready and the clinician is in full agreement.
- BOTOX® is used to smooth out wrinkles in the upper half of the face (e.g. your crows' feet).
- Dermal fillers plump areas of lost volume, such as nose-to-mouth lines, or to enhance lips.
Luckily, BOTOX® is highly effective at correcting crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, as well as treating vertical neck bands, grooves above the upper lip and gummy smiles.
With SkinViva, we contact you 14 days after your treatment to determine if you require a free top-up injection. If necessary, we'll book you in whenever you're free for a follow up.
If you prefer, ice or local anaesthetic cream can be applied to minimise sensation.
The crows' feet count as one area and therefore is available from £169 (for our direct debit scheme) or £180 in paying in one go.
For the first 2 hours after treatment, it’s important not to rub around your eyes so that the BOTOX® stays in the area we're looking to treat - your crows' feet! For the succeeding 24 hours, don’t engage in any vigorous exercise, drink alcohol or experience prolonged sun exposure – whether natural or artificial. This can limit the effectiveness of the treatment of the wrinkles at the sides of your eyes.
Your Clinician will discuss these with you at your consultation.
Perhaps those who have had a BOTOX® treatment themselves and are particularly observant may have an inkling.
Real Patient Story
Paul's experience of anti-ageing treatment
“I didn’t know what expect at my first consultation with Tim but he reassured me that the changes would be subtle. This was important for me because I didn’t want people at work to know.
“Since then I’ve been back six or seven times and have met Drs. Sharan, Lucy and Tim. All of them have been friendly and chatty. It’s easy for me to book in and the guys are helpful on the phone.
“Since having the treatments I feel more relaxed about how I look because I’m not worrying about the few wrinkles that I had at age 30 and am totally comfortable with how natural it looks.”
