Unfortunately, wrinkling and aging is a natural part of life which can’t be avoided, but it can be delayed.!!

Eyes are the window to the soul, and they’re also a telltale sign of our living habits, primarily because the skin around your eyes is some of the thinnest and most delicate area on the body.

Crow’s feet are wrinkles at the outer corner of the eyes that resemble the feet of a crow. As we age, the skin around our eye loses its collagen and elasticity naturally , making it more prone to wrinkles. These wrinkles get deeper and longer as we grow older.

Sometimes these pesky wrinkles are also known by the name of “laugh lines”, “expression lines”, or “character lines” because they’re caused, in part, by our habitual facial expressions. Some people are proud of their “laugh lines,” but when these premature wrinkles start to deepen, most of us begin wondering how to get rid of crow’s feet instead. The skin around your eyes is one of the first areas of the face to develop those fine lines and creases. Unfortunately, wrinkling and aging is a natural part of life which can’t be avoided, but it can be delayed.

What Causes Crow’s Feet ?

Our skin is composed of three layers: the outermost epidermis, the inner dermis, and the subcutis beneath the skin. When we refer to “wrinkles”, we’re talking about the creases or depressions seen on the epidermis, but the real action goes on below the surface.

The dermis is the main layer of skin that causes crow’s feet and wrinkles; it’s a complex combination of blood vessels, hair follicles, and sebaceous (oil) glands. More importantly, this layer is where you’ll find collagen and elastin—two essential proteins for preventing crow’s feet.

  • Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, made up of various amino acids. It’s found within connective tissue and is responsible for giving structure to the body’s skin, hair, nails, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Most importantly, it provides the skin cells’ strength and volume.
  • Elastin is another protein found within the dermis and connective tissue. It has an elastic property which enables skin cells to resume their shape and ‘snap back’ after being stretched, contracted, poked or pinched.

The subcutis (or bottom layer of skin) hosts sweat glands, loose connective tissue, and most importantly, fat. When this fatty layer is reduced, it can cause crow’s feet, wrinkling, and overall sagging.

Altogether, the three levels of the skin are made up of various components, including water, protein, lipids, minerals, chemicals, and enzymes. These elements are constantly in flux throughout the course of our lives—for better or worse. As we age, the biological changes within our skin cells are what cause crow’s feet and other wrinkled skin across our body. Gravity can also be added to the list of crow’s feet causes since weakened skin without support will simply sag downwards.

Crow’s Feet Treatment

Getting rid of crow’s feet is generally simpler than eliminating the pronounced grooves or furrows found elsewhere on the face. There are several different treatment options you can use to get rid of crow’s feet, from natural home remedies to professional cosmetic procedures. Eye Creams with Vitamins and Minerals are helpful for crow’s feet treatment like:

    • Vitamin A: Retinoid eye creams are derivatives of vitamin A, which can reduce the wrinkle depth of crevices which extend beyond the epidermis into the dermis.
    • Vitamin C: Not only does vitamin C products like L-ascorbic protects skin against UV ray damage, but also stimulate collagen production. This vitamin is also a lightening agent, meaning it can help those who struggle with dark circles or sun spots in addition to crow’s feet.
    • Vitamin E: Use of Vitamin E prevent and delay sun damage of the skin in addition to repairing the damage caused by free radicals.
    • Peptides: Short chains of amino acids called peptides are often found within eye creams to treat crow’s feet for their ability to signal collagen production and assist with essential cellular activities.

What is the best treatment for crow's feet?

Eye creams and serums cannot achieve the desired success for crow’s feet treatment, so considering cosmetic procedures using injectables such Botox and Dermal Fillers are considered most effective today.

Today, the most sought after treatment for crow’s feet is Botulinum Toxins like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin etc. Botox works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a chemical needed for muscle contraction thereby preventing the wrinkle formation. Cosmetic surgeons at FMS typically inject Botox to the outer corners of the eyes, but some patients also get a tiny amount injected in the muscle band below each eye. By stopping contraction, the creases and wrinkles disappear and the treatment can deliver natural results lasting up to four months.

Dermal Fillers:

Fillers like Hyaluronic Acid can be used in the under-eye area to fill in hollows and lessen shadows. Only the lightest of fillers is used here. Most fine lines can be eliminated with one of these lighter dermal fillers like Juvederm Volbella, Resylane L, Restylane Refyne etc. Fortunately, these fillers contains preloaded lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so treatment isn’t painful at all.
