Wrinkles around the corner of the eye are called crow’s feet. Unlike expression lines and wrinkles found on other parts of the face, crow’s feet can be very visible deep in the skin.
The main cause of crow fees is the reduction of skin elasticity and collagen due to aging and UV rays. Squinting, raising eyebrows, frowning, and repeated muscle contractions cause the skin to wrinkle and sag, gradually leading to wrinkles on the face.
Unlike other wrinkles, crow’s feet can actually appear in your mid-twenties. Even earlier in some individuals who are not engaged in good skin care. The reason they appear earlier in life than other types of wrinkles that appear with age is due to the thin layer of skin and lack of sebaceous glands around the eyes. Once the elasticity of the skin is reduced, it cannot return to its original state.
Botox or botulinum toxin treatment is performed with a thin needle from the outer corners of the eye. It usually takes 5-14 days for the treatment to take effect and can last for three to four months. We also offer treatments that reduce crow’s feet over time, thanks to their clinically proven skin regenerating and skin tightening properties. Book your consultation with our doctor to discuss what treatment options are suitable for you.
