The aging process makes it inevitable that we develop lines and creases around the eyes, known as crow's feet. Treatments for reducing crows feet include anti wrinkle creams, botox injections, laser skin resurfacing treatments and cosmetic acupuncture.

Diet and Lifestyle

The ageing process makes it inevitable that we develop lines and creases around the eyes, known as crows feet. The type of skin you have and environmental factors can make a difference in the severity of crows feet. As is usual with most health issues, prevention is better than cure. Avoiding exposure to the sun, using a good sun screen all year round and wearing a wide brimmed hat on sunny days will help prevent damage from the sun. A healthy diet rich in anti oxidants will help to strengthen the skin against damage from the sun and pollution. Smoking is known to give you wrinkles and can also damage your eyesight. Even if you do not smoke yourself, frequent exposure to others smoking can be just as damaging.

There are several treatments to consider for reducing crows feet around the eyes:

Anti Wrinkle Eye Creams
A huge range of products are available from beauty stores which claim to reduce wrinkles. It is difficult to know if these actually work, as any changes will be very subtle. There are some face creams which can relax the skin and prevent lines forming. The only way to know if anti wrinkle creams work would be to apply the cream to one side of the face for several weeks and then check the mirror to look for changes. Individuals may experience a different result due to the type of skin and strength of muscles which contract and cause lines to form in the first place.

Botox Injections
After botox treatment injections, you should see significant improvements within 7 days. Botox causes the muscles to relax, and prevents them from contracting, so that the face remains smooth and wrinkle free. Botox is excellent for reducing crows feet lines around the eyes, removing frown or glabella lines and forehead lines. Too much botox can create a face which does not move and is unable to show facial expressions. Some people may develop an immunity to botox, especially if they have frequent botox injections. Botox is popular with celebrities and is available at many local beauty salons.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Laser skin resurfacing can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by removing the outer layer of skin. Several treatments may be required to achieve the desired result. The skin may be very red and sore for several days after treatment, and exposure to sunlight must be avoided as the new skin revealed by laser treatment can be easily damaged by UV rays. Laser skin rejuvenation is a popular treatment for acne scars and uneven pigmentation. Some laser treatments can tighten the skin as the laser encourages the stimulation of collagen production, which plumps up and firms the skin.

Cosmetic Acupuncture
The principal behind acupuncture is that it redirects natural energy in the body, promoting healing and well being. The insertion of needles into the skin can also stimulate collagen and therefore acupuncture can achieve a face lift, reducing wrinkles and firming the skin. Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture should only be carried out by a qualified acupuncturist who has had specialist training in cosmetic acupuncture.
