Crows Feet Treatment
Over our lives the development of wrinkles and marks on the skin are unavoidable, especially in areas such as the face. A life of laughter may well result in some prominent crow’s feet. Though gained through joy, having crow’s feet can often be a far less pleasant experience. That is why we offer a number of ways to treat them here at UK Aesthetic.
What are Crow’s Feet?
Crow’s feet (also known as laugh lines) naturally form around the eyes when a person laughs or smiles. The outward form from the eyes and resemblance to bird footprints is the reason for the name. They are completely natural, but can obviously be aesthetically displeasing. A number of non-surgical treatments can be used in order to improve the appearance of crow’s feet.
Best Treatments for Crows Feet
A number of non-surgical treatments can be used in order to improve the appearance of crow’s feet. Typically, the severity of the crow’s feet you are experiencing will impact the choice of treatment you take. You may wish to combine treatments in order to achieve the preferred results.
Younger, healthier, looking skin is often the result of a chemical peel which can penetrate deep into the dermis. This can help to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet over a number of repeat sessions. If you’re having a deep chemical peel, then typically only one session is required.
Direct treatment for crow’s feet is that of dermal fillers. This is where your crow’s feet are injected directly with the filler in a small needle. There are a number of options for dermal fillers, with some being more permanent than others. Dermal fillers as a treatment for crow’s feet can be particularly effective when the crow’s feet show permanently on the face, even when not smiling.
Similar to chemical peels, laser resurfacing works to remove the top-most layers of skin to reveal a more youthful appearance. However, it can also work effectively for crow’s feet in particular as ensures an increase in collagen production. More collagen means that the skin around the eyes will heal more evenly and hopeful result in a smoother appearance.
