Crow’s feet are fine lines that form around the eyes. They were given this name because they look a lot like … crows’ feet. They are also called laugh lines and are largely caused by sun exposure, although smoking also plays a role.
There are two main types of crow’s feet:
Dynamic lines are the result of underlying muscle movement.
Static lines are always there and are caused by a long history of squinting, frowning and sun damage.
Injections of neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are popular ways to address crow’s feet. These results last about three to four months or longer depending on how frequent you get injected.
Another option, Pelleve 12 minute eye Wrinkle Reduction, also targets crow’s feet. Pellevé uses radiofrequency energy to heat inner layers of skin and stimulate collagen production. Collagen, the main protein that gives our skin the supple elastic qualities most associated with youth, will then plump and tighten the skin from within. Results appear gradually with improvement after just one treatment and last up to six months. We recommend a series of 3 treatments, spaced out 1 month apart for best results.
All of these can be used alone or together, for a combined rejuvenation effect that will dramatically softens crow’s feet and improves skin’s overall texture. Softening these lines will improve your appearance, make you look younger, and improve your self-confidence.
