Crow’s feet are horizontal lines that radiate from the corners of the eyes, which are prominent as we age and are typically seen while smiling or expressing ourselves.
The delicate area surrounding the eyes is vulnerable to developing signs of aging. Lines or wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, can be dynamic or static. Dynamic wrinkles appear when muscles contract during facial expression and speech. Conversely, static wrinkles are visible when the face rests but may become more evident with muscle contraction. Over time, dynamic lines become static.
According to Dr. Ravali Yalamanchili, the renowned dermatologist at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic, “The aging of the periorbital region plays an important role in the psychological and quality of life”. It is the first area that is exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and environmental damage, which may vary widely from individual to. The aging of this area of the face is speeded up also by repeated facial expressions; indeed, crow’s feet are accentuated by the contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle that controls the closure of the eyelids.
Periorbital wrinkles are a crucial component of facial aging that can be reduced with botul-inum toxin treatment. Smoking can increase the skin's normal aging process, contributing to the formation of wrinkles. During aging, there is a change in the elasticity of the dermis with a reduction in the total amount of collagen.
Treatment options for crow’s feet depend on age, severity, personal choice, and doctors’ advice. Following are the crows feet treatment in Hyderabad offered at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic:
Topical creams: Topicals containing retin-oids like reti-nols are useful in slowing down the aging process. Reti-nols stimulate collagen and can reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Botul-inum To-xin: popularly known as BO-TOX is the most effective treatment option to treat dynamic lines and static lines. The procedure involved a toxin which is a protein in the concerned area. The results are seen within 48 hours, with peak results at 2 weeks and lasting up to 6 months.
Chemical peels: Deep peels like TCA peels help resurface skin and hence help treat fine lines.
Dermal fillers: Hyaluronic acid fillers help hydrate and improve collagen and elastin production. This provides a stretching effect on the skin and treats the lines.
Lasers: ablative lasers like CO2 lasers and Erbium lasers help in laser resurfacing and improving lines.
