crow's feet

As we age, our skin gets thinner, loses elasticity and fat volume. This results in wrinkles and folds on our skin. Coupled with the stress from work, it’s easy to see why some might choose to opt for skin tightening treatments in Singapore.

What Are Crows Feet?

Crows Feet are lines that appear at the corners of our eyes. These are usually one of the first signs of aging that can appear in our late 20s.

Crows Feet are dynamic wrinkles that are noticeable when muscles are contracted when we smile, squint or laugh.

Smiles, frowns and squints are some examples of expressions that lead to folds and lines on our face.

Causes of Crows Feet

Every time a muscle on our face is moved, grooves are formed under the surface of our skin.

These repetitive facial muscles movements over time will result in the permanent breaking down of the foundation under our skin. Hence, making these wrinkles permanent.

Environmental and biological factors such as sun exposure and menopause are also some of the culprits contributing to crow’s feet.

Interesting Fact:

People with more natural pigmentation, such as darker skin Asians, are protected from harmful UV rays. That probably explains why most Caucasians are more susceptible to Crows Feet as compared to Asians.
