What are crow's feet?

Crow’s feet are the fine lines and tiny wrinkles that form around the outer corners of our eyes. They are mainly caused by sun exposure but repeated muscle movement from normal facial expressions in this dynamic area, such as smiling, laughing, and squinting are also a major cause.42,66

The different types of crow's feet lines

There are essentially two main types of crow's feet lines:58,66

  1. Those that appear due to the actions of our underlying muscles. This can easily be illustrated if we smile or squint: this activates the muscles around the outside of our eyes to form crow’s feet.
  2. Those that are present all the time, even when we are at complete rest or asleep. They result from a long history of, for example, squinting, frowning and sun damage. 

What are the treatment options for crow's feet?

Botulinum toxin is the most widely used treatment for this area, however, nowadays, HA dermal fillers are also a possible treatment for this dynamic area of the face.3,70

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment option to correct fine lines and superficial wrinkles in sensitive areas such as the crow’s feet.29

We can temporarily improve our skin’s appearance by having injections (using a very small needle) of an Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler directly into our crow’s feet.66,71

Nowadays, novel automatic injection devices are available that help optimise injections into this dynamic area.72

Professional-grade skin care products made with highly effective ingredients such as HA, specifically address the delicate skin tissue surrounding our eyes.5,32

Whether they are in the form of a cream or a serum, these products are gentle enough to apply to the eye area, providing ample hydration and to smooth out the fine lines of crow's feet.32Especially when they are made of reinforced HA (crosslinked), they help this very thin skin keep its water content to avoid turning wizened

Consult your practitioner to get the best advice regarding the use of these skincares at home28.

Forehead Lines

Although these lines that are etched across our foreheads can be the result of natural ageing, they are more commonly caused by years of brow-raising, frowning, and daily sunscreen neglect.

Lip wrinkles reduction

Not everyone is naturally blessed with a bright smile and full, beautiful lips, both synonymous with natural beauty and sensuality.
