Crow’s feet occur when the muscle around the eyes tightens and creases the skin. It’s usually from smiling or squinting and is a normal part of ageing. To slow it down, wear a zinc containing sunscreen daily and use a retinol in the evening. Botox is the mainstay to treating this area as it stops the muscle from tightening so strongly.
Additionally, a CO2 laser can resurface the skin to make them go away. However, they will return if you don’t protect the new skin by using sunscreen.
In October we’ll be offering RF microneedling, which is very effective on crow’s feet and less expensive than laser treatment. Stay tuned….
