Crow’s Feet Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
Crow’s feet are lines and wrinkles that form around the outer corner of our eyes. The skin surrounding our eyes is 40% thinner than the rest of our face, making this skin delicate and extremely vulnerable to the effects of ageing. Whether we refer to crow’s feet as character lines or laughter lines, these wrinkles on the edge of our eyes are inevitable.
As we age, the skin around our eye area loses its elasticity, while collagen production weakens. Frequent face movements like smiling over time can cause eye wrinkles to form as we lose this supportive protein. Too much sun exposure, the natural downward effects of gravity as well as a genetic pre-disposition can also heighten the chance of having these distracting lines around our eyes. This can make us not only look aged, but also very tired and rundown.
We offer a range of game-changing treatments to get rid of crow’s feet without invasive surgery. Our award-winning treatments are designed to smooth out outer eye wrinkles while stimulating skin renewal over the long-term, so you can minimise the appearance of your crow’s feet for longer.
Botulinum toxin crow’s feet injections are one of our most popular procedures for instantly uplifting visible results. But we also offer treatments that reduce crow’s feet over time thanks to their clinically proven skin-replenishing and skin-tightening properties.
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we believe in helping you look great for your age in a completely natural and subtle way. Our crow’s feet treatments have been designed to generate optimal results that won’t look contrived, exaggerated or unnatural. To book an appointment and find out how you can achieve exceptional results, please call one of our clinics in London and Buckinghamshire today.
Fixing your crow’s feet is easy when you take a pro-active approach to prevention or damage minimisation, while also smoothing fine lines and eye wrinkles with treatments like fillers, botox and skin tightening. Repeated facial gestures like blinking and laughing cannot be avoided, but protecting your eye area against UV rays and pollution is a smart way to prevent crow’s feet from forming. The daily use of anti-crow’s feet eye creams also works to thicken and strengthen the skin, particularly when they contain retinol, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid. In addition to this preventative approach, take pro-active action to treat deep eye lines that have already formed by opting for dermal fillers and botox treatments for rapidly visible results.
Administered properly by a fully qualified medical practitioner, botulinum toxin injections will visibly diminish crow’s feet but enable movement in your facial expressions to remain and avoid an unwanted frozen, ‘caught-in-the-headlights’ look. It normally takes 5-14 days for botulinum toxin crow’s feet treatments to work.

Dermal fillers work to boost collagen stores in the outer eye area while restoring volume and plumping out the crow’s feet lines. They are the quickest way to generate visible results as they fill in crow’s feet lines as soon as they are injected. They also have a long-term collagen-stimulating effect to provide additional support and strength over time.
While anti-wrinkle injections are frequently used, in addition to injectable dermal fillers, we can also rely upon skin tightening treatments like Thermage Eyes and Ultherapy to visibly soften lines and smooth out the skin. Ultherapy uses advanced ultrasound technology kick-start the natural renewal of collagen stores deep within the skin, while Thermage Eyes relies on radiofrequency (RF) technology to improve skin elasticity and smoothness.
Crows feet surgery is not always the best option as a blepharoplasty procedure for example is not designed to target that area of the eye, so if your main concern is crows feet then a non-surgical treatment is more likely to give you the best results.
