Crow's feet are the fine wrinkles that occur at the corners of the eyes as we age. They may be apparent when the face is at rest but tend to be most prominent during smiling or squinting of the eyes. Treating crow's feet can make you look younger and enhance your overall complexion.
Why do crow's feet form?
Depending on a patient's facial features the muscles that cause crow's feet (primarily orbicularis oculi) may be very active or only mildly expressive. The smiling muscles zygomaticus major and minor may also contribute to crow's feet formation. There is great variability in how much any of these muscles contribute to apparent wrinkles around the eyes.
