What causes crows feet lines?

Crows feet lines and wrinkles are caused by several factors: aging, sun-exposure, lifestyle, loss of collagen and elastin, extreme dieting and genetics. Crows feet lines can also be caused from expressions over time such as squinting and smiling. This is why crows feet lines are also known as smile lines. Although crows feet lines are a natural sign of aging that doesnt mean you can’t correct them.


Where are crows feet?

Crows feet lines are the fine lines that are at the corners of the eyes and can spread down towards the cheek or up to the temple area. Crows feet lines will deepen when making certain expressions like smiling or squinting. They are more often seen when smiling and can deepen over time.


Are crows feet lines permanent?

Crows feet lines are permanent, however, there are treatments that can help soften and minimise these lines to restore smooth wrinkle free skin.

Treatment for crows feet lines include:

  • Laser skin treatments
  • Medical grade skincare
  • Micro-needling
  • Chemical Peels
  • Cosmetic procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Skin Boosters


How do we treat crow’s feet lines?

At VIVA we treat Crow’s Feet by injecting the relevant muscle with Botox to provide a smoother and less wrinkled appearance around the eyes. Our injectable specialists will smooth out lines using  anti-wrinkle injections in the muscle allowing for natural movement and retaining expressions but improving deep set static lines.  Another option for crows feet wrinkles are dermal fillers improving the volume loss in the cheeks and temples, we can soften the lines and improve the skin tone.


How do you prevent crows feet lines?

You can prevent crows feet lines from getting worse by using high quality SPF 50+, wearing sunglasses in sunny climates to elimanate squinting, routinue eye exams reducing squinting, reducing screen time to prevent eye straining, reducing alchol intake and abstaining from smoking. Although, you can prevent them from getting worse, crows feet lines are natural wrinkles that develop over time naturally.


Crows feet treatment with Botox

This procedure takes about 30 minutes using tiny insulin needles. Our medical injectors will carefully mark the area of injection and discuss the aftercare and maintenance for your wrinkle treatment. A face to face consultation is required for this treatment as Botox is a presciption only drug. Patients that are breastfeeding or pregnant are not suitable for this treatment. At VIVA, this treatment is booked as 1 area of Botox.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anti-wrinkle injections are an increasingly popular treatment for tackling the signs of ageing non-surgically. They’re able to relax facial muscles and proactively prevent wrinkles from forming.

The injections work by using a naturally purified protein to relax muscles in the face and block certain nerve signals to the muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the hyperactive muscles that normally contract or elevate will freeze, allowing for smoother skin with reduced wrinkles.

Due to the treatment being non-surgical in nature, there is little to no pain involved in anti-wrinkle injections. Of course, everyone has a different pain threshold, but when performed by our expert practitioners the procedure is described as a slight pinch to the skin. The needles used for this treatment are extremely thin to allow for minimal discomfort and improved accuracy for our practitioners.


Different areas of the face will have more nerve endings, such as the upper lip, meaning these areas can be more sensitive than others. We recommend the use of a topical anaesthetic to soothe the area and remove any discomfort. Our clinically trained practitioners are trained regularly on the latest techniques to ensure that treatments are performed with your comfort and safety as a priority.

Due to the nature of injectable treatments, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Side effects from Botox injections commonly keep to the site of the injection and often only take a few days to settle. The most common side effects include: 

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Bruising
  • Sensitivity
  • Muscle weakness

Any potential side effects will be discussed further at the pre-treatment consultation with a member of the VIVA team.  Your practitioner will discuss relevant medical history to provide an informed recommendation for your course of treatment. 

Our medical team is led by Dr Rupert, who is considered one of the most experienced injectors in the UK. Having treated over one million patients in over ten years of opening our doors at VIVA, you can have peace of mind that your safety is our priority.

Initial results will be visible as soon as you leave the clinic, however, it will take around two weeks for the anti-wrinkle injections to finalise and provide the full result. The two-week wait also allows for any light bruising or swelling from the treatment to reduce, revealing your final look. 

After a few weeks following the treatment, you will begin to notice the muscle around your eyes contract less, and any lines will be smoothed.

The Botulinum toxin (BOTOX) anti-wrinkle injectables that we use at our clinics usually last around 3 to 4 months, with longevity varying naturally from patient to patient. We recommend a follow-up appointment around 4 to 6 months after your initial treatment to assess results and provide maintenance. Follow-up appointments will help us to keep your skin looking healthy and rejuvenated for as long as possible.

The exact length might change based on the volume of anti-wrinkle injectables used, aftercare, and the precise areas being treated. Our aestheticians will be happy to discuss specifics at your initial consultation.

Injectables can usually last independently for months, but you can increase the longevity of your results and prevent wrinkles in a few ways. To ensure that you get the most from your anti-wrinkle treatment, we recommend a combination of the following.

  • Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, minimising exposure to UV radiation.
  • Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated.
  • Avoiding stress, as this will accelerate the signs of ageing.
  • Follow the recommended aftercare provided by our practitioners.
  • Regular follow-up treatments.

We only use the most effective and safest FDA-approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. Before any treatment we require a full medical consultation to understand your suitability. We would never recommend a treatment for you if we deemed it to be unsafe or dangerous for your unique circumstance.

At VIVA, we only hire doctors and nurses with a strong background in the NHS, with a minimum of three years in aesthetics. Our MD, Dr Rupert Critchley, is involved in the training of other medical practitioners for Allergan, the company behind Juvéderm and Botox. 

You can be sure that you will be in the best hands; safety is our primary concern, and we work to ensure that you are safe and comfortable, before, during and after your treatment.

This treatment is quite popular, with the appearance of crow’s feet being fairly common, so this treatment is suitable for all patients looking to regain a youthful appearance and to treat those pesky wrinkles around the eyes.

This treatment is personalised to every patient so that we can proactively treat the required muscles that will be the most efficient for providing smoother skin and a reduction in wrinkles around the eyes. 

With many different brands cluttering the market, and our Clients as our top priority, we ensure to use only the safest, more premium products. This is why we at VIVA Skin Clinics are proud to use the FDA-approved Botulinum toxin by Allergan, one of the safest and most renowned brands on the market.
