Common Causes of Crow’s Feet

There are a few reasons why crow’s feet wrinkles form where they do and why they’re such deep, prominent wrinkles. In fact, crows feet are such a big issue for our patients, that one of the most popular requests we get is for crow’s feet treatment. Knoxville patients that get treatment for their crow’s feet are often amazed at the results.

Collagen

When we’re young, our bodies produce a lot of collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin volume, strength, and tautness. With age, our bodies stop producing as much. This is why the skin can get thinner as we age and more wrinkles form.

Different Types of Wrinkles

One of the primary things to understand is that there are different types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are grooves on the face that are always there even when you aren’t making any kind of facial expression. Dynamic wrinkles are the opposite: they’re most noticeable with your facial muscles contract. Crow’s feet are most commonly dynamic wrinkles.   Another reason they’re so prominent is because of the eyelid muscles underneath the skin.

The Orbicularis Oculi

One of the most active muscles in your face is called the orbicularis oculi. This muscle is also part of a group of muscles that control your eyes and facial expressions that are almost always moving, which is why crow’s feet form so commonly.

Options for Crow’s Feet Treatment

Knoxville patients have several fantastic options to get rid of their crow’s feet. Botox and other injectable treatments are a terrific choice. Not only are the results quick and long-lasting, but the procedure has virtually zero downtime and only takes a few minutes.
