Crow’s feet, those fine lines that appear in the outer corners of the eyes, are often one of the first signs of aging to develop. Lines that begin when you make certain facial expressions can become permanently etched on the skin over time, making you look older than you feel. The good news is there are a number of effective treatments to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet. All of the following procedures are available at New Visage in Morehead City.
The go-to anti-wrinkle treatment is also effective in treating dreaded crow’s feet – in fact, it was approved by the FDA for just that purpose in 2013. Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles that lead to the appearance of wrinkles, smoothing away those telltale lines in the process. Botox injections take just a few minutes to complete and results can last up to 3-4 months before a touch-up treatment is required. Botox is a popular choice for both men and women and can also reduce the appearance of facial creases across the forehead and between the eyebrows.
Chemical peels offer full exfoliation, reducing the appearance of imperfections like crow’s feet. These chemical solutions are tailored to the unique needs of each patient, allowing us to address a wide range of skin concerns. The chemical solution is applied to the face and left on for a prescribed amount of time before it is neutralized and removed. The solution loosens the outer layers of skin cells, which flake off in the days following treatment. The results is a smoother, rejuvenated appearance with fewer age lines than before.
This innovative treatment creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s own healing response. As collagen and elastic production increases, patients see visible improvement to their skin with fewer signs of aging like crow’s feet. The procedure can be used on the entire face or on select areas, such as around the eyes, to address specific concerns. Results of a microneedling treatment can be both dramatic and long-lasting, with results that improve in the days and weeks following the procedure.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing
Another option for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet is fractional laser resurfacing, a procedure that work deep beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate healing and collagen production. Laser energy is delivered to the treatment area in micro-bursts, offering similar results to full laser ablation but without trauma to surrounding skin and tissue. This means quicker procedure times and shorter recovery periods without compromising your aesthetic results.
Signs of aging can be distressing, particularly when they occur sooner than you expected. With effective treatments available today, even sensitive areas like the eyes can be refreshed and rejuvenated, restoring your youthful appearance.
