Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet is the term used to describe the expression lines and wrinkles which develop at the outer corner of the eye. These lines are caused by repetitive actions such as smiling or laughing. Alternative terms are “smile lines” or “laughter lines”.


Anti-Wrinkle injections soften lines and wrinkles resulting in a more relaxed and rested appearance. The aim is a natural relaxed look rather than a “startled” or “frozen” one.

How does the treatment work?

One way to avoid crow’s feet would be to never smile, laugh, frown or squint. I am sure you would agree that this would result in a very boring existence!! Since this is impossible, Anti-Wrinkle Injections offer a more practical prevention strategy to this problem. Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily weaken the orbicularis oculi muscles around the eyes and iron out wrinkles.

The effects of Muscle Relaxing treatments last three to four months. Results are evident within two weeks of treatment. There is minimum downtime with this lunch time treatment, bruising may occur albeit a rare occurrence.

You cannot halt the progression of time or prevent ageing, but you can airbrush crow’s feet.

Cause of Crows Feet?

Crow’s Feet are lines around the eyes which may occur due to genetic factors and sun damage. Other causes are laughing, smiling and squinting in the bright sun light.

At Dr Lisa Fay’s Rooms we provide a range of treatments which rejuvenate the gentle eye area to take years off your appearance.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections are very effective and are usually the treatment of choice. Anti-Wrinkle Injections result in relaxation of the muscles in the crow’s feet area. Effects last between 3-4 months. The effects of treatment are evident at 2 weeks after your procedure.

How to treat deep resting Crow’s feet lines

Deeper resting lines often require a combination of Muscle Relaxing Injections (to relax dynamic movement of the muscles in this area) and dermal fillers (to treat resting static lines). The procedure involves relaxation of muscle first using Anti-Wrinkle Injections followed by dermal fillers. Filler is placed in micro droplets to increase hydration and skin strength. Further improvement can be achieved using medical grade skin care (retinols, peels and glycolic acids) and Microneedling.
