How to Get Rid of Crows Feet

Although often referred to as smiles lines crow’s feet can make us look aged and are something that people often would like to remove. Sometimes people worry if they treat their crow’s feet they will no longer look like they are smiling but this isn’t the case. there are two muscle groups that move when we smile and we only treat one when we treat crows feet so if done properly it shouldn’t effect our smile. Below are some great tips on how these lines form and the best treatments for crows feet.

What are Crows Feet

Crows’ feet or as they are sometimes referred to as “smile lines” although they are definitely nothing to smile about are the lines that radiate from the corner of the eye outwards when we smile. Eventually, over time these lines remain even when we aren’t smiling. They get the name crow’s feet as have the appearance of a crowfoot.

What Causes Lines Around the Eyes

There are many factors that contribute to the formation of wrinkles around the eyes from what you eat to how much you smile, sun damage and genetics. Sun damage and genetics play host to the quality of the skin and how likely it is to wrinkle thus keeping the skin healthy with skincare and dermal therapies and most importantly sunscreen will help stop them from forming. The repetitive movement will eventually leave these lines when we arent smiling. By weakening the muscle we can stop these lines from forming and also treat one already there.

Lines Under the Eyes

The under-eye area is always a popular area of concern for clients, because as we all age, our skin loses its collagen and elastin and becomes thin and wrinkled over time. Again, this is often due to genetics and sun damage. The best way to treat these is to strengthen the skin under the eye with dermal therapies and skincare.

Crows Feet

Crow’s feet are formed by the continuous movement of the muscles around the orbital bone (eye). These lines can appear in many different lengths and depths. The name crow’s feet come from the similar look of the lines that are formed and how they curve through the skin around the facial structure from the eye, much like a crow’s foot or claw.

Preventing Crows Feet

There are many ways to help reduce the formation of crow’s feet around the eyes. The most obvious is to stop smiling but of course, we don’t want to do that. The second easiest way is to use botulinum toxin to assist in weakening the muscle’s strength to stop the wrinkles from forming. The use of great skincare is vitamins A, B, and C to keep the collagen in the skin to assist it in bouncing back, and thirdly dermal therapies to help strengthen the skin’s integrity.

Antiwrinkle Injections

Low-level antiwrinkle injections can help weaken the muscle and prevent the lines from forming. It needs to be done every 3 to 4 months and costs between 200 and 400 dollars depending on the muscle strength. It is a simple injection done with a very fine needle.

Great Skincare

The use of good skincare and sunscreen ingredients targets things such as fine lines, collagen, elastin, and thinning, dull skin over time. Using these with persistence is always going to optimize results in the area. Specialized eye creams and the ABC of skincare will make the best difference.

Dermal Therapies

Therapies such as skin needling, peels, HIFU, PDO Mono Threads and PRP all help build collagen in the tissue. Helping the skin keep its substance and elasticity.  This allows the skin to bounce back after movement rather than forming lines.

How do we Treat Crows Feet?

So what do you do if these pesky lines have already formed and are there when you aren’t smiling? Your best option, in this case, is anti-wrinkle treatments. In these cases depending on the depth of the lines and how far they radiate, some dermal filler in the outer cheek can also be beneficial. Skincare and treatments such as skin needling are still beneficial as your antiwrinkle will work better if the skin is in great condition and the lines will go away faster. Staying out of the sun and using sunscreen will help in the skin’s integrity as well as keeping the skin hydrated can also reduce the appearance of lines.

Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatments

It is great that these days we have these amazing nonsurgical treatments at our disposal. These tools however are only as good as the person using them so make sure you do your research when choosing a practitioner. Dermal fillers now come in a great variety of strengths and properties where we can do everything from building a new chin to simple skin hydration delivered under the skin. Antiwrinkle treatments have been around since the 1980s so there is lots of evidence for their safety. The techniques used and administration have improved so you can have a treatment with little discomfort or downtime.

Wrinkle Treatments for Other Areas of the Face

Anti-wrinkle injections are suitable for treatment on many areas of the face such as cheeks (cheek lines), forehead lines, glabella (frown lines), crows feet, eyebrow lifts, nose lines (bunny lines), lips (gummy smile, downturned mouth), around the chin, neck and more. When we look at a face, we look at it aesthetically and we try to even out the aging process evenly when using antiwrinkle injections. The reason that we may treat other areas is to ensure that we are balancing out the texture of the skin and matching it throughout the face. This is so we don’t have areas on the face/dermis looking 5-10 years older than others.
