Crow’s feet wrinkles are those that appear on the outer corners of the eyes, in a fan shape towards the temples. They are dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines.
They form when you smile, due to the contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle. This muscle is responsible for lowering the eyebrows and closing the eyelids.
In the case of frequent sun exposure, and particularly if you do not wear sunglasses, these wrinkles can become more marked. This phenomenon gets worse over time and with fat loss, which makes the skin on this area thinner.
Treatment: Crow’s feet wrinkles can be treated with fine injections into this area to prevent it from creasing too much when you smile, but without causing you to lose your expressiveness.
Please note that, in certain cases and depending on which muscles need treating, this treatment might raise the tail of the eyebrow slightly. This effect is much appreciated and is known as the “Fox Eyes” effect. However, it does not last very long due to the strength of the muscles in this area. The effects of the treatment to correct crow’s feet wrinkles usually last 4 to 6 months on average.
The fee charged for this type of treatment starts at 200 euros per session.
