Crow's Feet / Eye Wrinkles

Along with physiological aging, losing fat and connective tissue supporting the dermal layer around the eyes, may result dryness and wrinkling, especially with those expressive lines around the eyes (Crow’s feet).


  • Botulinum Toxin Injection

    Botulinum Toxin Injection

    Our expression lines are resulted from facial expressive muscle contraction stimulated by our neurotransmitter Acetylcholine (Ach). Botulinum toxin (BTx) is purified protein which can effectively reduce the excessive muscle contraction via competing with Acetlycholine for the receptive binding sites on muscle plates and hence reduce our expression lines. Furthermore, we can also delay the formation of static lines on face at later age through reducing excessive facial muscle contraction.

    The certified available botulinum toxins in HK are BOTOX from USA, Dysport from UK and Xeomin from Germany. However, those with neuromuscular diseases, pregnant or lactating mother are not advised for botulinum toxin injection. It is important to seek medical advice before deciding on the treatment. It will start effect about 3 - 7 days after injection, and the result can last about 4 - 6 months, variation subjected to individual patients.

    Botulinum toxin has been widely used clinically nowadays mainly at the following:

    Face: Reduce expression lines, namely frown lines, crows feet, forehead lines, bunny lines and etc.

    Calf sculpture: Reduce the muscle bulk of gastrocnemius, it can help reshaping the contour of calf muscle..

    Square face: This is resulted from the muscle bulk of masseter muscle (main chewing muscle of face), botulinum toxin can reduce the muscle bulk and hence reshape the facial contouring.
