Get Rid of Your Crow’s Feet


Your crow’s feet (who thought of that term anyway?) are a badge of life – maybe an unwanted one. The best approach is to use different treatments depending on your age and their depth.

If you’re young and they’re just starting, a little Botox is a good solution.  But after another decade or two, that alone won’t really do it. This is one reason for starting in your 30s-40s with some collagen building, like long wave lasers, Fraxel, or Thermage.   And don’t forget to use sunscreen on this area.

If you’re over 40, combining collagen building, Botox, and perhaps a filler like Cosmoderm or Cosmoplast should soften your crow’s feet. Don’t forget that if your temples are getting really hollow or your brows are sagging, that may be contributing too.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
