What are crow’s feet?

Crow’s feet is a term for the small lines radiating from your eyes’ sides. The natural ageing process causes them. The delicate skin around the eyes is particularly susceptible to the signs of ageing and tends to start to show one’s age sooner rather than later.

What causes crow’s feet?

The causes of crow’s feet are no different to the usual cause of lines and wrinkles. Firstly you have the factor of repetitive movements; every time you smile or squint, you add to the lines and wrinkles that are already there. You also have the fact that your collagen and elastin levels are decreasing over time. When you add in sun exposure and the effects of first and second-hand smoke, you have all the reasons why crow’s feet could form.

Why Treat Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet, the fine lines that radiate from the corners of the eyes, are often among the first signs of ageing to appear on the face. These lines are not just indicative of ageing; they also reflect the joy and expressions of a life well-lived. As with all these things, there is the chance they can affect self-confidence and how one feels about their appearance, even in a small way. Treating crow’s feet at Derma Revive Skin Clinic is as much about restoring confidence and maintaining the skin’s health and vitality as it is about addressing the signs of ageing.

The skin around the eyes is particularly delicate and susceptible to damage from sun exposure, smoking, and the natural decrease in collagen and elastin production as we age. By treating crow’s feet, we aim to rejuvenate this area, making the skin look smoother and more youthful. This not only enhances your natural beauty but also provides a protective measure against the progression of these lines.

Suitable Treatments

Treatment options for crows feet

Whilst plenty of treatments out there state that they ‘reduce the appearance of fine lines, ’ anti-wrinkle injections are the main treatments people use for crow’s feet. Depending on the extent of the issue, other treatments, such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and/or dermal fillers, may be a viable treatment option.

It may be the case that we offer you multiple treatment options, some of which may be combined, in order for you to achieve the maximum possible result. If you are hoping that your crow’s feet don’t get any worse, then you should stop smoking; if you do, cover the area when in the sun, stay hydrated, and generally adopt a healthier lifestyle.

What to Expect After Treatment

Immediate Aftercare

After receiving treatment for crow’s feet at Derma Revive Skin Clinic, patients can expect minimal downtime, allowing them to return to their daily activities shortly after. Immediate aftercare will depend on the treatment received but generally includes avoiding direct sun exposure and applying any prescribed or recommended creams to aid healing. It is always important that you follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner to ensure the best possible results and minimise any potential side effects.

Long-Term Results and Maintenance

The longevity of the results from crow’s feet treatments varies depending on the method used. Treatments like Botox injections can last for 3 to 6 months, while the effects of dermal fillers may last up to 12 months. Microneedling results can improve over time, with a series of sessions recommended for optimal outcomes. Maintenance treatments are often advised to sustain the results alongside a healthy skincare routine that includes sun protection and hydration to support the skin’s elasticity and overall health.

How do Botox injections work to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet?

Botox injections are a popular choice for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet by temporarily paralysing the muscles that contribute to these lines. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles around the eyes, preventing them from contracting and thus smoothing out the skin. The results typically become visible within 3 to 7 days after treatment and can last between 3 to 6 months. Patients often report a more rested and youthful appearance, with the skin around the eyes appearing smoother and less wrinkled.

Are dermal fillers safe for treating crow’s feet, and how long do the results last?

Dermal fillers are considered safe for treating crow’s feet and are particularly effective for deeper lines that may not fully respond to Botox injections. Fillers work by adding volume beneath the skin’s surface, plumping up the area and smoothing out wrinkles. The results can be seen immediately after treatment and typically last between 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s skin type and lifestyle. It’s important to have dermal fillers administered by a qualified practitioner at a reputable clinic like Derma Revive Skin Clinic to ensure safety and achieve the best results.

How does microneedling reduce crow’s feet, and how many sessions are needed?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, encouraging collagen and elastin production. For crow’s feet, microneedling can help improve skin texture and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines. The number of sessions needed varies, but a series of 3 to 6 treatments, spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart, is recommended for optimal results. Patients often notice improvements after the first session, with results becoming more pronounced after subsequent treatments.

How do I choose the right treatment option for my skin type and age?

Choosing the right treatment for crow’s feet depends on several factors, including skin type, age, and the severity of the lines. A consultation with a skilled practitioner at Derma Revive Skin Clinic is the first step in order to assess your skin’s condition and discuss your aesthetic goals. Preventative Botox or microneedling might be recommended for younger patients with mild lines. In contrast, older patients with more pronounced lines may benefit from combination treatments, such as Botox and dermal fillers. Your practitioner will provide personalised advice to ensure the chosen treatment aligns with your skin’s needs and your expectations.

How long does it take to see results from crow’s feet treatments?

The time it takes to see results from crow’s feet treatments varies depending on the type of treatment. Botox injections typically show results within 3 to 7 days, with the full effect visible in about two weeks. Dermal fillers offer immediate improvement, with the final results apparent once any swelling has subsided, usually within a few days. Microneedling results develop over time, with noticeable improvements seen after a few weeks as the skin begins to produce more collagen. It’s important to have realistic expectations and discuss the anticipated timeline with your practitioner at Derma Revive Skin Clinic.
