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
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.
How do we Treat Crows Feet?
Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatments
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.
