Developing crow’s feet is a natural part of aging. As our body grows older and is exposed to years and years of sunlight and a myriad of emotions, our bodies change and mature. However, just because crow’s feet is a natural process does not mean we have to like it! Luckily, there are amazing treatments for crow’s feet, including injections for crow’s feet and fillers for crow’s feet. The amazing team at San Diego Cosmetic Laser offer the best crow’s feet treatment, helping you shoo away those troublesome crow’s and turn back the clock.
What are crow’s feet?
Crow’s feet is the name for the wrinkles that form on the outside of the eyes, a natural reaction to squinting from the sun, laughing, smiling and just aging in general. Also known as “laugh lines”, crow’s feet tend to pop up during your late twenties and only get worse with time. While you can delay the abrupt arrival of crow’s feet with lotion, sunglasses and aggressive skin care, it is an inevitability that eventually the crow will make his presence known.
Over-the-counter and prescription wrinkle fillers for crow’s feet
There are many eye creams made with retinol that can help you reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and help prevent crow’s feet. Known by over-the-counter brands like RoC Retinol Correxion, and prescription brands like Renoval, this is an affordable option that can be done daily. However, there’s one disadvantage – it isn’t as effective as other, more expensive, methods. The results are often minimal and the best results are seen by women (and men) who started using these creams before they started actually seeing their crow’s feet.
Dermal fillers are the best crow’s feet treatment
If you want to eradicate aging, the best solution for crow’s feet is dermal fillers from a cosmetic doctor. These injections for crow’s feet can dramatically reduce the signs of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, shaving years of age off your appearance. If you are looking for the best crows feet treatment, look no further than dermal fillers from San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic.
There are numerous wrinkle fillers that can help with reducing the appearance of existing crow’s feet, but you’ll need to visit your local cosmetic doctor. The four most popular options are:
Collagen is a protein that’s a huge part of many tissues in your body – including your skin. Purified collagen that’s used in these dermal fillers can come from cows or human cells, and their effects tend to last for about three months. Compared to other injectable wrinkle fillers, collagen doesn’t last nearly as long, but tends to look more natural. If you are looking for the most natural looking treatment for crow’s feet, go for a collagen injection.
This injection for crow’s feet is a particular type of mineral that can be found in the teeth and bones. When used to fill wrinkles, the particles are put into a gel-like solution, which is injected into the wrinkle. This option lasts about a year-and-a-half. While it’s still working, the calcium hydroxylapatite may be visible in x-rays.
Also known as PLLA, poly-L-lactic acid is biodegradable, biocompatible, and man-made filler for crow’s feet. This polymer can be used in several ways, including in stitches and bone screws. It is also effective as a dermal filler for crow’s feet. The doctor gives a series of injections, usually over a few months. The effects become apparent over several weeks and they can last as long as two years.
Believe it or not, hyaluronic acid is a kind of sugar. It’s naturally present in a variety of body tissues, including both cartilage and skin. It combines with water and swells when it’s in gel form, which then has a natural smoothing and filling effect. This acid can be found in certain bacteria and in rooster combs. In some cases, hyaluronic acid is combined with other dermal fillers for crow’s feet to make it last as long as possible. Without being paired with other dermal fillers, it will last about six months to a year.
5. Juvederm for Crow’s Feet
Juvederm is one of the best solutions for crow’s feet, using hyaluronic acid and other dermal fillers to plump and smooth the skin around the eyes. A Juvederm injection for crow’s feet typically lasts somewhere from six months to nine months, with follow-up appointments required after that to maintain appearances.
