Treatment for Crow's Feet: Wrinkle Reduction Options By Patricia Berbari on January 29, 2016

A couple together at homeDr. Patricia Berbari has helped patients throughout the Gatineau area look their absolute best, offering the latest in cosmetic plastic surgery as well as cosmetic injectable treatments and other non-surgical solutions.

A number of patients have asked about the best treatments available for addressing crow's feet, which are a common sign of the aging process. Let's take a moment right now to consider these matters.

What Are Crow's Feet?

Crow's feet are the wrinkles that form at the corners of the eyes. They may be small or may be large and unsightly. In general, crow's feet can make a person look much older than he or she really is, which can lead to self-consciousness about the person's appearance.

What Causes Crow's Feet

Crow's feet are caused by the natural aging process as skin laxity changes as do the underlying structures of the face. Crow's feet are considered dynamic wrinkles in that they appear and form as a result of muscle contractions and facial expressions, making them more pronounced. Crow's feet are most visible when a person squints or scrunches his or her eyes.

In addition to the natural aging process, the appearance of crow's feet may be exacerbated by sun damage over the years, which often leads to more pronounced wrinkles. In addition, smoking is known to make facial wrinkles such as crow's feet form faster.

Thankfully there are different treatments for crow's feet to consider.

Skin Resurfacing Options for Crow's Feet

When you have minor crow's feet or lines around the face, it's not a bad idea to consider skin resurfacing procedures. Whether you undergo a facial, a chemical peel, or a laser resurfacing option, these can all improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles in the process.

BOTOX® Injection for Crow's Feet

Another good option to consider for crow's feet is the use of BOTOX® injections. BOTOX® injections work by halting the muscle contraction in the injection site. This means that the skin is not agitated by the muscles when making facial expressions, causing wrinkles to fade and not be present.

The results of BOTOX® injections last for several months, and patients can have lasting anti-aging results by undergoing subsequent BOTOX® cosmetic treatments.

Determining the Best Treatment Option for You

Both skin resurfacing procedures and BOTOX® injections can yield excellent results, but sometimes one wrinkle reduction approach is more effective than another. During the consultation process, we'll help determine the best anti-aging approach for you and your needs.

Way to Prevent the Formation of Crow's Feet

In order to prevent crow's feet from forming or at least make them less prominent, consider the following tips:

  • Wear sunblock when outdoors
  • Wear sunglasses to protect the eyes and the eye area
  • Wear a hat with a brim to keep your face shaded
  • Use a proper moisturizer on your skin
  • Eat a healthy and well-balanced diet
  • Stay well-hydrated by drinking water
  • Quit smoking (or just don't start in general)
