How Best to Banish Your Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet will impact almost all of us at some point. It’s understandable, as our eyes are one of the most mobile parts of our faces (we blink around 20,000 to 30,000 times a day!), and the skin around our eyes is up to four times thinner than the rest of the face.

However, your eyes are also at the centre of your face – they’re one of the first things we see when meeting new people, and are the way we convey connection and emotion to each other. Having crow’s feet can make you look older than you feel, and might be impacting on your self-confidence. If this is the case, then you might want to look into aesthetic treatments to help turn back the clock and make you feel like yourself again.

With so many treatments available, it can be hard to know what’s right for you, so in this post, we’ll compare two of the best non-surgical treatments for crow’s feet – Plasma BT (also known as Plasma Surgical) and Anti-Wrinkle Injections.

Plasma Surgical and Anti-Wrinkle Injections are two very different treatments, but are both highly effective. Plasma Surgical is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that uses plasma to create a tiny electrical arc, which is then applied to the skin. Plasma surgical is an incredibly targeted treatment that allows us to treat very tiny areas of the face, without disturbing the surrounding skin. When the plasma is applied to the skin, it causes a process called ‘sublimation’ which actually vaporises some of the skin cells in the targeted area, tightening the skin and prompting the remaining cells to regenerate and contract. This helps to tighten the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet and smoothing the area out to give you a brighter and more youthful appearance. The results of Plasma Surgical don’t wear off, though wrinkles and fine lines may appear again as the ageing process continues.

Anti-wrinkle injections work in a very different way, but still offers effective results. These anti-wrinkle injections are made up of proteins that are injected into the skin and muscles around the eyes. These proteins then block the nerve signals from the muscles to the brain, preventing them from moving. This actually stops the skin in the area from folding and creasing, reducing the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothing the skin. Treatments should be repeated every six months or so to maintain optimum results, and with repeated treatments, the treatment can actually stop new wrinkles from forming.
