Look Younger in the Mirror: Fending Off Crow's Feet
The problem: Crow’s feet.
What are they?
Crow’s feet are those fine wrinkles which creep up around the eyes as early as the late twenties. These wrinkles seem to be the tell-tale sign of age since they often expand and deepen over time.
What causes crow’s feet?
The primary cause stems from thinning of delicate eyelid skin due to sun exposure and repetitive movements such as smiling and squinting. Skin also loses its elasticity and firmness due to reduced amounts of collagen production.
What can I do about crow’s feet?
A dermatologist can help you fend off these unwanted signs of aging with quick outpatient procedures that address the 3 R’s:
- Relaxing the muscles that create crow’s feet with Botox or similar products
- Refilling lost volume in the skin with fillers
- Resurfacing with fractional lasers and chemical peeling
How should I care for my skin at home?
There's a fourth R that you can do in your own home: Rest! Getting your full night’s worth of beauty sleep can work wonders for your skin and overall health.
In addition, remember to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, apply an eye cream or serum, and wear sunglasses outside no matter the weather to help to maintain your results.
