What are crow’s feet?
Crow’s feet, also known as laugh or smile lines, are the given name for the lines around the outer corner of your eye. As flattering as laugh lines sound, these unsightly lines appear in our early 30s, or earlier if you do not use an effective skin care regimen. Either way, these inevitable lines will appear as we grow older.
The causes of crow’s feet
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity due to lost collagen and elastin–the two most important proteins for maintaining a youthful look to our skin. The skin around the eyes is much thinner and often the first place on our body to show signs of wrinkles. As our facial muscles repeatedly expand and contract over time, fine lines and wrinkles eventually become permanently etched into the face. Crow’s feet will appear on the face when the muscles around the eyes are unable to fully rest. Other contributing factors of crow’s feet include sun damage and a slower renewal of cells (skin turnover) in the body.

The best way to combat crow’s feet is with neuromodulators. Neuromodulators, like Botox and Xeomin, block nerve impulses to the muscles. This softens fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. If you live in the Fairbanks area and you are interested in Botox or Xeomin treatments, request a consultation today.
