They show when you’re happy, or even when you’re sad.
They appear when you laugh with joy, or squint in annoyance. They may even reveal your age at times. Etched in the outer corners of your eyes, you might not even notice when they start to appear at the outer corners of your eyes. Say hello to our little friend, the crows feet.
The Homecoming of Crow’s Feet
The wrinkles around your eyes start to form as a result of multiple factors including the loss of elastin and collagen, exposure to UV rays, and repeated facial movements – such as frowning, squinting or laughing. Crow’s feet could appear as early as your mid-20s, making you look tired or older than you are. Although you may not be able to remove crow’s feet completely, there are multiple ways to reduce them!
Blocking out UV
UV rays increase the rate of collagen breakdown, so make sure you keep out of the sun as much as you can! If you do need to be out in the sun, remember to slap on SPF sunscreens, put on UV protective sunglasses and hats before you head out. Your skin will thank you for it.
Change Out Subtle Habits
It is subtle but some of your habits may be causing the crow’s feet to intensify. Change out your daily routine if you find yourself doing these actions unconsciously!
- Rubbing your eyes
- Resting your cheeks on your hand
- Sleeping on your side every night
Going For A Jab
If you’ve done everything you can, it’s time you seek out botulinum toxin injections. The next generation Pure Botulinum Toxin with Zero Complexing Proteins is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that helps to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Administered in small amounts, these pure neurotoxins relax your muscles to prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles when making facial expressions, helping you look younger and fresher. Go for wrinkle reducers that are US-FDA approved and contain zero complexing proteins!
Lift, Lift, Lift
You could also consider US FDA-cleared micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (#mfuv) treatment to lift and tighten skin around your eyes, thereby reducing the appearance of these lines. This non-surgical treatment bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural healing response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. Over the span of 3 to 6 months, you can expect to see the full effects of the micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation treatment. Speak to a medical professional for a solution just for you!
Crow’s feet are nasty, but your youthful looks are here to stay with these easy fixes!
