Getting Rid of Crow's Feet and Eye Wrinkles

Some of the perpetual signs of aging are crow's feet and eye wrinkles. They have various causes and possible treatments. The small lines on the outside of your eyes actually look like prints left there by a small bird, which is the reason for their name.

Wrinkles around your eyes can get deeper as the years pass. They will not appear deep like those you might have on your forehead, or the wrinkles you may have that run from the corners of your mouth to your nose. They are still annoying, though, since they detract from the youthful appearance of your face.

The skin in the areas near your eyes isn't as thick as that on your forehead, which is why these wrinkles near your eyes won't become as deep as frown lines. The skin below your eyes is also thin. You can even touch these areas and feel the difference. You have, as does everyone, fatty tissues that allow your cheeks to plump, and this can be found elsewhere on your body. But you won't find any fatty tissue near your eyes.

Since you don't have fatty tissues in the eye areas, crow's feet and eye wrinkles generally appear sooner than other facial wrinkles, often at an earlier age. The skin on other body parts stretches out the fine lines. As that tissue also gets thinner, you'll see more wrinkles, as well as sagging and a loss of elasticity.

It is thought that the wrinkles around your eyes probably come from squinting and the repeated use of similar expressions that use the same muscles. If you always sleep on the side, this may also have an effect on the facial skin. Sunlight damages most skin areas, and the skin around your eyes is no exception. People with a tan often have corner eye lines. The wrinkles may be lighter than your face, if you spend a lot of time in the sun.

Squinting may cause lines since it can affect the new cell production in the area of your eyes. The skin is so thin to begin with, and it will get thinner as you age. In this way, the rejuvenation process of your body slows down.

Sun damage is almost always a culprit in facial wrinkles. The sun tends to dry things out and allow them to become faded. The thin skin in the area of the eyes is susceptible to photo aging, due to free radicals. Sunlight increases free radicals and this damages the skin.

Your eyes may likely be the first places you notice aging, with crow's feet and eye wrinkles becoming more apparent. Your eye skin area is almost always stressed, from loss of moisture, smiling, laughing, sun exposure and squinting.

Creams that help in the production of elastin and collagen are helpful in reducing wrinkles in the eye area. Botox can also be used to make your eyes look younger. Botox works by paralyzing facial muscles so that the wrinkles do not form. Some dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid that will smooth and plump up skin, so these can also be helpful in reducing crow's feet and eye wrinkles.
