Scarecrows aren't the only ones who despise crow's feet. The wrinkles at the corners of our eyes often leave us frustrated - and fantasizing about a solution. However, with so many skincare companies and clinics promising to banish crow’s feet with their miracle products, you may find yourself wondering, "what is the best treatment for crow's feet?" Here's what you need to know about products and treatments that really work to combat those crow’s feet once and for all.

Popular Treatments for Crow’s Feet that Really Work

Retinoids and Retinols

Prescription retinoids and over-the-counter products that contain less potent retinols utilize Vitamin A to promote rapid skin cell turnover. These creams and gels are considered a handy weapon against common skin issues like acne and wrinkles because of their significant ability to refresh the skin's surface. While retinoids and retinols are great for preventing fine lines and wrinkles, used alone they often aren’t enough to combat crow’s feet or lines and wrinkles that have already formed.

BOTOX and Dysport

Best Treatment For Crow's Feet

BOTOX, and its popular alternative Dysport, offers you an effective, non-surgical way to smooth wrinkles that were caused by dynamic muscle movement. An aesthetic injection specialist will identify your wrinkle-causing muscles and inject BOTOX into them using a fine needle. This injection temporarily relaxes the muscles. BOTOX allows both the muscles and skin to relax, banishing crow's feet, forehead furrows and frown lines. BOTOX requires little to no downtime. You can expect to see results in about 5 days, with results lasting for up to four months. For these reasons, BOTOX is often our first recommendation for crow’s feet or to erase fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face.

Dermal Fillers

Like BOTOX, dermal fillers are injected, though they work a little differently. As the name suggests, dermal fillers soften your facial lines, creases and scars by adding volume to the face’s soft tissue and creating a cushion beneath the skin. There are many different types of facial fillers available, with most requiring little recovery time but producing fast results. These results can last anywhere from four months to more than a year depending on your skin type and which filler is used. Fillers aren’t often recommended for crow’s feet, but some patients do benefit from this treatment to fill out the areas around the eyes, such as with under eye bags and dark circles. A side-effect of getting that treatment is that crow’s feet can also soften in appearance. However, with most patients, we often recommend a little BOTOX or Dysport in the crow’s feet area as well.

Surgical Solutions

A rhytidectomy, or eyelid lift, can be an option if you are willing to undergo a longer procedure and recovery time. Better known as a facelift, this surgical procedure targets the visible signs of aging on your face and neck. A facelift can generally take between two and six hours depending on your specific case, with a typical recovery time of two to three weeks. The results tend to last for five years or more, with some patients returning for spot treatments with BOTOX.

What Is the Best Treatment for Crow's Feet?

While it is always important to weigh your options, BOTOX is hard to beat as the “best” treatment for crow's feet. Retinoids and dermal fillers improve the appearance of your skin, but BOTOX can go further, addressing both your skin and the muscles beneath it that actually cause the wrinkles. BOTOX also allows you to avoid the risks and lengthy recovery periods associated with surgery.

Aging may be inevitable, but living with crow's feet doesn’t have to be.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
