What Causes Crow’s Feet?  

Did you know that the skin around your eye area is the thinnest of your body? That it’s one of the first areas to show fine lines (“laugh lines”) and wrinkles around the outer corners?  That’s because when we smile or frown, the overlying skin gets pulled.  While the resulting lines usually disappear, long-lasting lines may develop with repetitive use with the appearance of “crow’s feet”, hence their name.   


Can I Prevent Crow’s Feet? 

You can’t change your genes but you can help prevent crow’s feet with a healthy lifestyle: 

  • Protect your skin from the sun: UV radiation accelerates collagen breakdown, leading to premature aging. It’s essential to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.  
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to maintain skin hydration. 
  • Decelerate the aging process: A balanced diet rich in antioxidants, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking can significantly slow the aging process. 
  • Wear sunglasses: Protect your eyes from UV rays and reduce glare and squinting by wearing UV-protective sunglasses. 


How Can I Treat Crow’s Feet? 

  • Injectables such as Botox® relax the muscles of expression, so lines don’t form.  New lines may even be prevented. 
  • Tightening treatments, such as radiofrequency, can help also reduce the appearance of crow's feet by promoting collagen production. 
  • Microneedling also stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin.  



Can I Reduce Crow’s Feet With Topical Skincare? 
Yes! When targeting crow’s feet, look for products containing ingredients that promote hydration, collagen production, and skin repair: 

  • Retinol: A derivative of vitamin A, retinol increases cell turnover and collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid: This powerful humectant attracts moisture, plumping the skin and smoothing out wrinkles. 
  • Peptides: Anti-aging peptides such as copper peptide-1 rejuvenate the skin and help repair damage. 
  • Antioxidants: Ingredients like vitamin E and green tea extract protect against environmental damage and support skin health.
