Our eyes are the highlight of our faces and are the first thing you notice when you look at someone. They not only allow us to see the beauty of our world but also provide lots of information about our emotions. The eyes are said to be the open windows to the soul of a person. It is no wonder that lines and wrinkles around the eyes can reduce their ability be our facial highlight.
Sun exposure, smoking and the constant movement around our eyes with smiling, laughing and squinting result in lines at the corners of our eyes. The shape of these lines have resulted in the term “Crows Feet”. Crows feet are a very common concern and are due to contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle, a circular muscle that surrounds the orbit or ‘eye socket’. These muscles are attached to the skin around the orbit and pulls the skin around the eyes inwards when it contracts, causing wrinkling. They typically start small, and then slowly getting more noticeable as we age.
A popular treatment for Crows feet are wrinkle relaxer injections such as Botox® & Xeomin® They relax the orbicularis oculi muscles that cause crow’s feet to form. After injection into the muscle, the onset of action is between 4 to 7 days. Duration of action is approximately 2 to 4 months on average, and depends on dose administered. Treating the upper part of the crows feet can result in a brow lift.
We believe that crows feet should treated a natural subtle way so they are soft and in balance, adding sparkle to your eyes. Completely obliterating these pesky lines can create a very stark artificial look which doesn’t necessarily make you look better. Genuine smiles are always accompanied by crow’s-feet even in children and it is quite okay to have some crows feet. We see them as a positive expression and something to be celebrated and embraced, not wiped away over filled or frozen.
Dermal fillers can also be used to reduce crows feet and wrinkles around the eyes, by restoring some of the lost volume in the area. Volume loss of the area around the eyes and the upper cheeks can cause skin laxity and wrinkling.
