Crow’s feet have lots of causes, including age-related collagen loss, smoking, squinting, sun damage and genetics. The smile lines radiating out from the eyes can appear when you’re in your 20s or may not appear until you hit your 40s. Regardless of when these fine lines become noticeable and permanent, they are sure signs of aging and skin damage. The good news? You can combat them a variety of ways.
Injectables. Botox® and Xeomin® offer a two-part solution for crow’s-feet. They reduce wrinkles in the short term by reducing or stopping excess muscle contraction and movement (like squinting). But both Botox and Xeomin also help to prevent permanent wrinkles, lines and creases from forming. Prevention is one reason why many of our patients opt to start treatment early. Injectables can’t get rid of loose extra skin such as excess eyelid skin but when combined with a forehead lift or eyelid surgery Botox and Xeomin lift, smooth and shape for a more youthful appearance.
Laser resurfacing. To fix the changing texture of the skin around the eyes, Dr. Atagi may recommend fractional resurfacing for damaged skin. Our ProFractional treatment eliminates old collagen and stimulates the body to generate new collagen creating a more youthful, smoother look. The treatment is great for significantly reducing the appearance of crow’s-feet.
Topical solutions. Finally, a solid daily, physician-grade skincare regimen can improve the skin daily and prevent future damage. Atagi Plastic Surgery & Atagi Skin Aesthetics has a full range of professional-grade skincare products. Our aestheticians will help you choose the products that are right for you.
