Crow’s Feet Treatments, Causes, Symptoms and Common Questions

Welcome to Pulse Light Clinic, your premier destination in central London & Manchaster for advanced skincare solutions. Crow’s feet, those fine lines and wrinkles that radiate from the corners of the eyes, are a common concern among many of our clients. Though often seen as a sign of a life well-lived, crow’s feet can also make us feel self-conscious.

What are Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet, also known as laugh lines or character lines, are clusters of tiny wrinkles and fine lines that appear around the outer corners of the eyes. These marks become more pronounced when we smile, laugh, or squint, hence the name. They are among the first signs of ageing skin but can also develop due to various external factors.

Types of Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet can be classified into two main types:

  • Dynamic Crow’s Feet: These appear during facial expressions, such as smiling or squinting, and are usually the first to develop.
  • Static Crow’s Feet: Over time, dynamic lines can become static, remaining visible even when the face is at rest. This transition marks a deeper set and more permanent type of wrinkle.

What Causes Crow’s Feet?

The primary cause of crow’s feet is the natural ageing process. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen, making it more prone to wrinkling. However, external factors can accelerate their appearance:

  • Sun Exposure: UV radiation breaks down collagen and elastin fibres.
  • Smoking: It introduces toxins that contribute to premature skin ageing.
  • Repeated Facial Expressions: Frequent squinting or smiling can hasten their formation.

Symptoms of Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are characterised by lines that may initially appear only with facial movements but can become permanent features on the skin. These wrinkles might deepen over time, becoming more pronounced and extending further from the eye.

How Can I Prevent Crow’s Feet?

Prevention is key in managing crow’s feet:

  • Sun Protection: Use broad-spectrum SPF daily.
  • Hydration: Keep the skin well-hydrated with quality moisturisers.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Maintain a balanced diet and avoid smoking.

Treatments for Crow’s Feet at Pulse Light Clinic

At Pulse Light Clinic, we are at the forefront of non-surgical, advanced cosmetic treatments designed to combat the signs of ageing, including crow’s feet. Our experienced team of doctors and nurses specialise in a trio of effective treatments tailored to smooth, replenish, and rejuvenate the skin around your eyes:

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Our anti-wrinkle injections are a quick, safe, and effective way to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet by relaxing the muscles around the eyes. This minimises the formation of wrinkles and fine lines with facial expressions, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. The procedure is minimally invasive, offering noticeable results within days.

Skin Peels

Skin peels are another excellent option for diminishing crow’s feet. By carefully removing the outermost layers of the skin, our peels stimulate the natural regeneration process, promoting the growth of new, healthier skin cells. This treatment not only reduces the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles but also improves overall skin texture and tone.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers provide an immediate solution for softening crow’s feet by restoring lost volume and hydration directly to the affected areas. Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, fillers work to plump up the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes. The results are natural-looking and can last for several months.

Prevention

Beyond specific treatments, a comprehensive skincare routine and lifestyle adjustments can play a significant role in preventing the formation and deepening of crow’s feet.

At-home Treatments for Crow’s Feet

Incorporate retinol-based products, antioxidants like Vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid into your skincare regime to support skin health and reduce the visibility of fine lines.
