Crow’s feet are small lines and creases that appear on the skin around the outer corners of the eyes. The skin around the eye area is particularly susceptible to damage, as it is thinner than the rest of the face and is in fact the first area where signs of ageing manifest themselves.
The contraction of the facial muscles used to convey emotions, the loss of elasticity due to aging, damage caused by UV rays, smoking, and pollution all contribute to the formation of these expression lines.
Crow’s feet are a completely natural result of growing older and indeed convey pleasant emotions, such as joy or laughing. They are however a common sign of ageing, and patients frequently wish to achieve a softer, more youthful look around the eyes. There are certain non-invasive cosmetic procedures that can reduce the signs of ageing in the skin around the eyes and achieve a fresh, well-rested look.
The suitable treatment for you depends on several factors, such as the specific type of your wrinkles, whether they are static or dynamic, your skin type, the specific area affected, your age, medical history etc.
