Crow’s feet wrinkles

Crow’s feet wrinkles, these small lines that form in the corners of the eyes, are often among the first signs of aging on the face. While some people embrace them serenely, they can be a source of concern for many. They are indeed likely to give a more aged or tired appearance than one actually feels, especially when they are associated with horizontal forehead wrinkles and the frown line.

What are crow’s feet wrinkles ?

Crow’s feet wrinkles are dynamic wrinkles. Over time, as the skin loses its elasticity and collagen, these wrinkles become more pronounced and may even be visible when the face is at rest. Alongside crow’s feet wrinkles, and as aging gradually affects the entire face, horizontal forehead wrinkles and the frown line develop in the upper third of the face. Together, these contribute to expressions appearing stern and perpetually fatigued.

How do crow’s feet wrinkles appear ?

Crow’s feet wrinkles, located at the outer corner of the eyes, are primarily the result of repeated muscle contractions from facial expressions such as smiling or squinting. With age, the skin loses its elasticity and ability to regenerate, which, combined with a decrease in collagen and elastin, contributes to the formation of these wrinkles. Sun exposure can accelerate this process by further damaging the skin. Additionally, genetic factors may predispose some individuals to develop these wrinkles earlier, while lifestyle factors including smoking, an imbalanced diet, and lack of sleep can also influence their onset and severity.

The solutions offered at Skin Marceau to reduce wrinkles

During an initial consultation, your practitioner takes the time to listen to your concerns and examine your face. Based on the severity of the signs of aging as well as your expectations, they will be able to advise you on the most appropriate therapeutic plan.

Treating crow’s feet wrinkles with BotoxⓇ

BotoxⓇ, or botulinum toxin, works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for the creation of these wrinkles, allowing the skin to relax and thus smooth out.

It is a preferred solution due to its minimally invasive nature, the simplicity of the procedure, and its quickly visible results. The eye contours regain a smooth appearance, with a significant reduction in the visibility of crow’s feet wrinkles and a fresh, rested look. Additionally, as part of a comprehensive facial treatment, it is possible to address the entire upper third of the face by also injecting wrinkles on the forehead and/or the frown line.

Facial rejuvenation with fractional CO2 laser

The treatment of wrinkles with fractional CO2 laser represents a significant advancement in the field of aesthetic dermatology. This cutting-edge technique utilizes laser to precisely target the superficial layers of the skin, thereby stimulating the process of cellular renewal. The action of fractional laser effectively treats wrinkles by inducing a mild abrasion that promotes the production of collagen and elastin. This stimulation helps restore elasticity and firmness to the skin, visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Suitable for various skin types, this treatment is particularly effective in diminishing signs of skin aging, offering noticeable rejuvenation and a more even complexion.

The results of treatments for crow’s feet wrinkles

Botox injections provide visible and natural results, with a smoothing effect that typically lasts between three and six months. This treatment is particularly appreciated for its non-invasive approach and rapid results, with minimal downtime.

On the other hand, the fractional CO2 laser targets the skin by creating small zones of thermal damage that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This natural healing process improves the texture and firmness of the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

It is even possible to combine these two methods to optimize the treatment of crow’s feet wrinkles, with each technique bringing its own set of benefits for a younger and revitalized appearance.
