Crow’s feet are the fine and deeper lines that spread from the outer corners of your eyes when you smile. When you smile, the orbicularis oculi muscles contract around your eye socket. This muscle contraction pulls your eye skin inward and over time causes your eyes to develop fine lines and deeper wrinkles.
The skin around your eyes is very thin and can be the first area of your face to show signs of ageing. One of the biggest causes is a loss of your skin’s elasticity that has been caused by your squinting, smiling and sleeping. We believe the biggest instigators of crow’s feet is smiling, then squinting and then sleeping.
Dark shadows or hollows under the eyes, also known as tear trough defects, as they follow an arc shape starting from the corner of the eye where the tear duct is, tend to be accentuated by a weakening of the orbital septum (a membrane under the skin) and a loss of soft tissue in the cheek area.
Tear trough rejuvenation is a relatively new treatment that is used to improve the appearance of dark circles or dark hollows underneath the eyes which appear in some people.
The procedure involves a dermal filler product being injected into the deep part of the tear trough. The filler will plump out the hollow underneath the eyes, making it appear flatter and smoother.
