Crow’s feet or laughter lines are one of the most common facial expression wrinkles. Depending on your lifestyle and genetics, these tiny lines may creep in as early as your mid-20s and 30s. While fine lines can add to the character and charm of your face, the deeper lines can make you look wrinkled and aged. On the bright side, we have an incredible range of anti-ageing treatments that can restore your skin’s elasticity and iron out those unwanted eye wrinkles for radiant and youthful skin.
What are Crow’s Feet?
Crow’s feet are the fine lines around the eye area. They resemble the feet of a crow – hence the name. There are two types of wrinkles: Dynamic wrinkles, these are not permanent and only visible through facial expressions like smiling and frowning. And static wrinkles, these wrinkles are always visible even when the muscles are resting. As we grow older dynamic wrinkles develop into static wrinkles. Over time they may develop into permanent, deep wrinkles.
What causes Crow’s Feet?
Crow’s feet develop because of the skin’s natural reduction in collagen and elastin as we age. These two proteins give skin a youthful and firm appearance. Plus, the skin around the eye is exceptionally thin and fragile, exposure to excessive UV rays and environmental pollution may aggravate these facial lines. In addition, facial expressions like smiling, frowning, or scowling also play a role in deepening and elongating these wrinkles.
