Almost everyone has had the experience of suddenly running into someone they haven’t seen for a while and thinking, “They look a lot older than they used to look.” Unfortunately, the realization that immediately dawns is, “I must look older too.” The reason this kind of encounter can be so startling, of course, is that aging is a gradual process. We see our own faces in the mirror each morning and minute daily changes go unnoticed. But traces of the passing years accumulate, even if it takes a long lost acquaintance to remind us.
The lines that form at the outer corners of the eyes, often called crow’s feet, are often one of the first marks of age to appear on your face. That’s because the skin around your eyes is double trouble-it’s both active and delicate. Think about it. Most facial expressions, especially the happy ones, cause you to wrinkle the corners of your eyes. Environmental factors do too, when you squint in bright sunlight and sneeze during allergy season. As your face registers all that happens to you inside and out, the fragile area around your eyes is constantly pulled by your facial muscles. Naturally thin already, this skin rapidly loses its ability to bounce back from all the action. Crow’s feet appear early and carve themselves deeper and deeper over time.
In the midst of all the new products available today and all the buzz that goes with them, it can be a challenge to sort out which ones are best for a particular problem like crow’s feet. Come in to visit the experts at Rejuvenate! We’re happy to tell you there is a very effective way to restore the smooth skin around your eyes and we’ll be delighted to help you do it.
Shoo Away Crow’s Feet for Good
With our three-step program, you’ll be seeing brighter, more youthful looking eyes in no time.
- First, to slow the aging process, we’ll develop a skin care regimen for the delicate area around your eyes. Our own pharmacist will blend medical grade ingredients unavailable without a prescription to create products just for you, and we’ll recommend products from Obagi® and Epionce®. Here in Colorado, skin care treatments like these will help you build moisture in your skin and protect it from sun and other environmental factors.
- The next step is to stop your crow’s feet from deepening every time you smile and laugh. You’ve probably heard about the popularity of BOTOX® Cosmetic in Denver by now, that’s because it acts to block dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet. The treatment is performed using tiny needles and injecting the safe, FDA-approved substance into the muscles around the corners of your eyes. You’ll still look very natural, just more fresh and youthful than you have in years.
- Finally, we’ll use a dermal filler to erase any remaining traces of crow’s feet around your eyes. These treatments support surface tissues from underneath, providing a strong, smooth foundation for skin to rest flat once again. Injectable skin treatments are easy to tolerate, and last several months and even longer.
Another option for treating crow’s feet is laser skin rejuvenation. This treatment uses a unique laser wavelength to treat both the outermost and deeper layers of the skin in just one or two treatment sessions.
