Crow’s Feet Defined
Crow’s feet are those laugh lines around the eyes. What’s interesting is that you don’t have to be older to develop this. It can begin to age younger people prematurely. The skin around the eyes usually creates fine lines, divots, and creases first as we start to age. While aging, and even wrinkles, are a natural part of life, there are ways to slow down the aging process, at least cosmetically. We provide Botox and dermal fillers that can help you appear more youthful and remove fine lines. Now, just what causes crow’s feet? Here are four main factors.
The Body’s Inability to Break Down Proteins
The older we become, the body loses its ability to produce and break down specific proteins. Over time, these proteins’ presence gradually shrinks. Collagen makes up for 75% of the skin, but as the collagen ratio decreases, the skin becomes less firm and supple.
Less Muscle Mass
It’s natural for the body to begin to lose muscle mass as we age. Sometimes, we can also lose fat on the face, making a face appear less voluminous. The same amount of skin is there, but the skin begins to drape over and cause wrinkles without fat being present.
Slower Sebaceous Glands
Sebaceous glands are a medical term for “oil glands.” When we become older, we produce less sebum or “oil.” Sebum forms a protective barrier around the skin, and without enough of it, the skin can become dry and brittle, causing crow’s feet.
Fewer Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)
These water-binding sugar molecules are responsible for making a face appear plump or full. With less water or volume below the skin’s surface, it can make the skin appear hollow.
