When you're dealing with wrinkles, it's safe to say you're dealing with crow's feet, too. Fortunately, wrinkle reducing treatments for crow's feet are widely available. Here are a few treatments to ask about when you see your dermatologist.
If you want to treat crow's feet and attain an all-around more youthful, glowing complexion at the same time, a chemical peel is one of your best bets. One of the best things about chemical peels is that they're tailored to your skin and its needs. For this wrinkle treatment, your dermatologist will take into account a few different factors, including the condition of your skin, what kind of results you're aiming for, and whether you're currently using any topical medications on your face. All of these factors will play a role in the intensity of the chemical peel your dermatologist applies to your skin. During the treatment itself, your dermatologist will apply a chemical solution to your skin to remove the outermost layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is softer, smoother, and more youthful. If you're fighting crow's feet, this treatment will help minimize their appearance and soften the skin around your eyes. Depending on the intensity of your peel, you may need to have several treatments before you start seeing the results you want. It's typically recommended to wait at least a few weeks between chemical peel treatments to see if you like the results.
Retinoids are one of the most effective ways to treat wrinkles all over your face, including around your eyes. In many cases, you can find retinoids in the form of topical creams. While there are over-the-counter retinol options available to you, you're probably better off with a prescription. When your dermatologist provides a prescription for a retinoid cream, you're guaranteed a higher concentration of retinol and more immediate wrinkle reduction results. If you're unsure whether your skin is too sensitive for retinoids, you should definitely speak with your dermatologist. Together, you can find a wrinkle reducing treatment that works with your skin type.
Dermal fillers are another popular treatment for facial wrinkles and crow's feet. Also called soft-tissue fillers, these products are injected into the skin to provide more volume in certain areas and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. When you want to reduce eye wrinkles that appear even when your face is at rest, dermal fillers may be one of the most effective options available to you. Fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane are fairly popular for treating facial wrinkles. Each type of dermal filler has slightly different components, so make sure you speak with your dermatologist to determine which type of filler is the best solution for your skin. If you're looking for a longer-term wrinkle solution, dermal fillers can last anywhere from three months to one year.
