Eye Wrinkles / Crow's Feet

Lines around the eyes give a variety of emotional expressions, most of which convey a negative impression.

These Crow's Feet are the result of normal but excessive muscle action of the underlying sphincter muscle of the eye and produce wrinkles that radiate outward in a 'sunray' effect. Elimination or softening of these lines is a frequently requested procedure. Injections alone are a great treatment for young patients given their prophylactic effects. While this request is simple, in the older population, adequately treating crow's feet often requires combining the injections with a rejuvenating treatment such as Laser Genesis, Carboxytherapy, Skin Needling, Pearl Fractional, Titan or a combination of some of these, to obtain optimal results. With most rejuvenating treatments, a good long-term result is only possible if the underlying muscle action is controlled with anti-wrinkle injections.

Since the eyelids and the surrounding skin is quite thin, it is an area that is particularly responsive to Laser Genesis™ which uses a light to moderate depth laser with no downtime. The crow's feet area is pre-treated with injectables followed by Laser Genesis™ Rejuvenation two weeks later.

Injectable treatments combined with Carboxytherapy treatments around the eye area performed two weeks later is also producing great long term eye rejuvenating results. Eight out of ten patients get a noticeable improvement in skin laxity around the eyes after the first two treatments.

However for patients who are apprehensive about the effects of injectables there are, new technologies such as Titan, Pearl Fractional, Skin Needling, Dermapen and Carboxytherapy. With Carboxytherapy the prospects of a more open expression in the eye and brow area are now possible and ageing around the eye area such as crow's feet, dark circles, eye bags and crêpey skin can be improved on, especially if Carboxytherapy treatments are initiated early on in the ageing process.

Skin Renewal Tip

Unfortunately a stunning "Hollywood" face and skin has not been handed out by nature - it has to be bought and this usually comes at an expensive price. At Skin Renewal, every client is provided with a fully customised yearlong solution dependent on budget and expectations. The treatments have prolonged effects and can be administered monthly or over a period of time until the desired result is achieved. The effect of each treatment is accumulative with best results down the line.
