Improving crow’s feet and
eyebrow position

Clients often ask “what can be done for the eye area?” Many people do not realise that we can dramatically improve the appearance of eyes through a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers for a brighter, natural-looking appearance.*

As the passage of time takes effect, we see certain common changes that we can treat to dramatically target concerns, if not diminish them entirely. These include smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes known as crow’s feet as well as lifting the brow area which can lower, lose shape and droop with age.

*Individual results may vary.

Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet are caused by the contraction of the orbicularis occuli muscle, giving rise to the lines that radiate from the outer corners of the eye. Anti-wrinkle injections are the primary treatment for this condition and reduce the appearance of these lines on smiling.

Some lines may still be present when we are completely relaxed. Dermal fillers can effectively reduce them with the combination of both anti-wrinkle injections and fillers producing the best result.*

*Individual results may vary.

Eyebrow position and shape

The position and shape of the eyebrows are critical in defining the face. Ideally, the female eyebrow is ‘gull wing’ shaped and is sited above the bony rim of the eye socket. The highest point of the eyebrow curve is two thirds from the middle edge. Male eyebrows are lower and straighter.

The shape and position of eyebrows is determined by one muscle known as the frontalis. This pulls the brows upwards and uses 4 sets of muscles to pull them down. Careful use of micro anti-wrinkle injections can adjust this balance to lift and enhance eyebrow shape and position. This may be supplemented with dermal-filler treatment to help support the eyebrow.*

Your questions answered

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a protein that occurs naturally in bacterium. It relaxes facial muscles by interacting with nerve endings to prevent the release of the compound that triggers muscle contractions. This can help to soften fine lines and wrinkles including crow’s feet.*

How long does the treatment take with Dr James Willis?

Your initial complimentary consultation with Dr James Willis is open ended but usually takes about half an hour. The actual anti-wrinkle injection treatment often takes less than 10 minutes.

If you’re a new client, we will usually invite you to return for a review after 2 weeks.

What improvements will I see after treatment?

It will take around 5 days to begin to see results such as wrinkles appearing softer and less obvious in treated areas. Your face will look younger and more relaxed. Improvements optimise after about a fortnight.*

How long will results last?

The effects of your treatment should last between 3 to 6 months, depending on your individual response. You may then need a top-up treatment. Subsequent treatments tend to last longer. Dr James Willis will talk through this during your free consultation.

Is the treatment painful?

No. The medication is injected in very small doses with an ultra-fine needle. It is mildly uncomfortable and doesn’t need any anaesthetic. However, some clients ask us to use a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) such as Emla cream. Dr James Willis is happy to do this if you prefer.

Will it leave my face frozen and without expression?

No. We assess the optimum dose to produce a relaxed soft appearance but you will still have facial expression and movement.

Are there any side effects?

Generally, no. Some clients experience slight bruising or swelling immediately after treatment. We will discuss this in detail with you at the time of your consultation.

Is there anything that I should or shouldn’t do after anti-wrinkle injection treatment?

You should avoid touching the treated area for a few hours. You will need to keep upright immediately after treatment and it is helpful to exercise the treated muscles during the first few hours. The dos and don’ts will be explained in detail during your assessment.

Can Dr James Willis combine anti-wrinkle injections and dermal-filler treatments?

Yes. Dr James Willis often provides an integrated treatment plan combining the 2 treatments. This is true for the treatment of both crow’s feet and drooping brow.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gels made from hyaluronic acid (a naturally-occurring substance that helps to maintain healthy skin). When injected they can help to replace lost volume, add contour and definition, smooth lines and wrinkles and restore a more youthful look.*

What happens to the dermal filler after it’s been injected?

Over time, the dermal filler will break down naturally and be reabsorbed by the body.

Which areas can Dr James Willis treat with dermal fillers?

This versatile treatment can be used for the following:

  1. Nose-to-mouth lines
  2. Lip contour and volume for plumper lips
  3. Marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
  4. Enhancing the cheeks
  5. Deeper glabella (frown) and forehead lines
  6. Crow’s feet around the eyes.
  7. Jawline refining
  8. Nose reshaping

How long does the treatment take?

It takes about 20 minutes depending on the area being treated.

What results will I see immediately after my dermal filler treatment?

The result is immediate. Your skin will appear younger and smoother.

How long will the results last?

Results may last for 6 to 9 months depending on the product and the areas being treated. Subsequent treatments tend to last a little longer.* Dr James Willis will talk through this during your free consultation.

Is the treatment painful?

No, Dr James Willis is an expert in gentle injecting techniques. Some dermal fillers contain anaesthetic to reduce discomfort further still. For dermal-filler treatment around the lips and mouth, we tend to use local anaesthetic to completely numb the area. This is the same feeling that you would have with a dental anaesthetic.

Are there any side effects?

Initially, there is a little redness and swelling that usually subsides after 12 hours. You may experience some bruising, which subsides over time. These side effects are all quite normal.
