Crow’s feet are the tiny lines that form on the corner of each of your eyes. They tend to be one of the earliest wrinkles to form on your face, developing as early as your mid-20s. This is because the skin around your eyes is thin, leaving it more vulnerable to wrinkles than other areas of your face.
Like all wrinkles, crow’s feet appear because your skin loses hydration and elasticity as you age. Each time you smile or squint, the wrinkles become more established as the muscles work beneath them.
There are two types of crow’s feet: dynamic and static. Dynamic crow’s feet (and other wrinkles) only appear when you move your muscles or make expressions. Static crow’s feet are always visible, even when your face is at rest.
Developing wrinkles with age is inevitable. However, there are a few steps you can take to prevent crow’s feet from forming early in life. If you don’t want pronounced crow’s feet, you should:
Taking these steps helps you minimize your crow’s feet, but they can form deeply anyway over time. Dr. Forbes can recommend specific products to help you keep the delicate skin around your eyes smooth and tight.
At Symphony Medical Spa, Dr. Forbes can treat your crow’s feet if they’re particularly noticeable or are affecting your self-esteem. She and her team use TempSure™, a radiofrequency-based treatment for wrinkles that works regardless of skin type or sun exposure.
TempSure’s radiofrequency gently heats the layers of tissue beneath your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and tightening your skin. Many patients report that treatments with TempSure give their skin a youthful, refreshed glow. You’ll see an improvement immediately, but the results get better over the course of the following few weeks.
Crow’s feet are one of many common wrinkles that can make you look much older. If you feel like yours are particularly noticeable, call Symphony Medical Spa or book your appointment online to explore treatment and minimization options.
