What Is Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet is a condition marked by a wrinkling of the skin around one’s eyes, especially during a smile or laugh. It is normal for people of all ages to have slight wrinkles at the corners of their eyes during times of bliss, but it is not until around the age of 40 that those wrinkles transition from temporary laughter lines to more permanent facial features. In some instances, individuals with crow’s feet appreciate how they affect their appearance. They can add an aura of gracefulness and refined dignity. But not everyone is as happy with the aesthetic. Many people want to smooth their wrinkles and restore youthfulness to their faces. Uptown Medical Aesthetics can help make that happen through prevention and treatment efforts.

What Causes Crow’s Feet?

The skin around your eyes is much thinner than in other areas of your face, which makes crow’s feet more noticeable than any of your other wrinkles. Skin in other areas of your face and body is surrounded by thick, fatty tissue, but that is not the case at the corners of your eyes. As a result, this area is usually the first to exhibit signs of aging. Your skin has a remarkable ability to renew and repair itself. However, over time, decreasing skin collagen and elastin – combined with sun damage, changing hormones, and environmental pollutants – reduce your skin’s ability to restore itself. With decreased structural integrity and slower cellular renewal, crow’s feet begin to appear at your eyes corners.

Why Should You Treat Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet do not lead to any harmful physical effects, but there are still physical reasons – as well as social and emotional reasons – to treat them when they begin to form. As with anything, quick restorative action will slow the development of crow’s feet and minimize their spread. By allowing them to run their natural course, you reduce your ability to reverse their progression as you continue to age. While that may not be an issue in the immediate future, it could have social and emotional consequences down the line. Small crow’s feet could be a badge of honor, but in a few years, you may not like the way they look. This can lead to reduced self-esteem and lower confidence in social settings. As a result, it is important to treat crow’s feet early.

How Can Uptown Medical Aesthetics Treat Crow’s Feet?

There are multiple approaches to minimizing or lifting wrinkles from the corners of your eyes. Among the most common is Botox® treatment for crow’s feet. This FDA-approved injectable has been proven to treat moderate-to-severe fine lines and wrinkles, and Uptown Medical Aesthetics can expertly use it to help rejuvenate your skin and produce a more youthful appearance. We can also provide dermal volumizers and creams for the same purpose. These products mimic the skin’s healing abilities by combining proteins, soluble collagen, antioxidants, and more. Our aestheticians will consult with you to determine the best treatment for your crow’s feet.
