Living in Tampa, Florida, we are all in the sun more often than most people. You have probably already noticed that you are developing wrinkles between the eyes. The “angry 11’s” are one of the most common wrinkles to appear on the face and in-between the eyes, and are caused by repetitive facial expressions, the skin losing elasticity due to age, and skin damage caused by the sun. While the wrinkles are inevitable, there are some things that you can do to prevent the formation of eleven lines and reduce the visibility of wrinkles around the eyes (known as crow’s feet), as well.
How to Reduce Eleven Lines and Crow’s Feet:
With a proper skin care regimen it is possible to postpone the visibility of the angry 11’s or eleven lines. Dr. Dominic, the board-certified facial plastic surgeon at Tampa’s Elite Facial Plastic Surgery suggests drinking plenty of water, eating a healthy diet, and using daily moisturizer with a high SPF. Always try to stay out of the sun, and if you must go into the sun wear a hat and good quality sunglasses to avoid squinting.
Squinting is often the culprit behind the formation of the angry 11’s and crow’s feet on the outer edge of the eyes. You should try to be as conscious of your facial features as possible. Whenever you are reading, make sure that you have enough light so that you avoid squinting and therefore, creating crow’s feet and eleven lines.
How to Get Rid of Present Eleven Lines and Crow’s Feet:
Once the wrinkles have already formed it is hard to erase their visibility. However, the Tampa plastic surgery team and Elite Facial Plastic Surgery recommend injectables like Botox or Xeomin for eleven lines and crow’s feet. Tampa Botox injectables are a great way to reduce the appearance of eleven lines and crow’s feet, and restore a more youthful appearance. Botox is also preventative, so if you see that eleven lines and/or crow’s feet are beginning to form, you can use these Tampa injectables to prevent permanent wrinkles.
For deep 11’s, a Tampa dermal filler may be necessary to reduce the appearance of the wrinkles. Dermal fillers in Tampa come in the form of Juvederm treatments and will add volume to the skin to erase wrinkles and add contour to areas where the fat has shifted. For the areas around the eyes, Tampa Juvederm procedures can fill in smaller, finer line and restore a youthful appearance.
