Crow’s feet are those annoying little wrinkles which appear around the eyes. They are somewhat formed due to excess exposure to the sun, although smoking – which displaces oxygen around the skin and reduces blood flow – can also play a part in the development of crow’s feet and other wrinkles and blemishes. However, the biggest cause is the repeated facial expressions we make over the years.
You see, not all wrinkles are the same – in fact, there are two distinct types:
– Dynamic lines, which occur due to the underlying movement of muscles and are typically visible when you frown, squint or smile.
– Static lines, which are constantly visible and are caused by sun damage and other factors.
But can anything be done about your crow’s feet? Thankfully, our staff can offer a number of treatments to alleviate crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles. To learn more and schedule an appointment, call us at Aesthetic Medicine & Veins today!
BOTOX® is a fantastic – albeit temporary – means of reducing the appearance of crow’s feet. Injections of this product can work wonders, and patients can expect the treatment to last for multiple months until repeat treatments are necessary for ongoing results.
For a non-invasive means of quickly and efficiently achieving younger-looking skin, professional peels are a perfect option for many people. A peel can reduce lines and wrinkles while helping the patient achieve a more balanced skin tone. At Aesthetic Medicine & Veins, we are proud to offer the SilkPeel®. Of course, no two skin types are the same, which is why our treatments are customized.
