“Crows’ feet” is the term used to describe the fine lines and wrinkles found at the outer corners of your eyes.
- There are two variations of these wrinkles; dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are said to be caused mainly by facial expressions. Every smile, frown, and eyebrow raise has contributed to creating tiny creases at the corner of the eyes.
- These dynamic wrinkles are a result of the creasing and breaking of the collage strands deep in the skin.
So what can I do about these wrinkles?
1. Keeping the skin around the eyes well-hydrated and protected can help to minimize the finer lines. It is especially important to use sunscreen (to minimize sun damage) and sunglasses (to minimize the squinting that can contribute to more dynamic wrinkles.) Recommendation: SilcSheer 2.0
2. An eye serum with Argireline [Acetyl Hexapeptide-8] can help soften these dynamic wrinkles.This peptide is distantly related to botulinum toxin (Botox®) and temporarily interferes with dynamic muscle movement. Recommendation: Super Eye Lift Serum
3. We also suggest to speak with your skin care professional about how a neuromodulator or dermal filler could be helpful.
