What are crow’s feet lines?
Crow’s feet lines appear when we smile, laugh or squint due to movement of the circular muscle around the eye. The most noticeable lines appear at the side of each eye toward the outer aspect of the face. These are sometimes referred to as laughter lines.
Crow’s Feet lines appear during expressive movement of the muscles around the eye.
How do crow’s feet lines affect our appearance?
There’s no escaping this one – crow’s feet lines visibly age us. Unlike other lines which may have a dimension of character to them, crow’s feet make us appear older than we are.
Over time, using these muscles too much can cause permanent creases which are visible at rest.
Why do we treat crow’s feet lines with anti-wrinkle injections and not dermal fillers?
Because of eye movement, it is challenging to treat laughter lines with dermal fillers.
However, anti-wrinkle injections using botulinum toxin products are highly effective at minimizing the movement of the eye muscles. This prevention of excessive movement smooths out the area. It also stops lines that are already there from worsening and slows down the formation of more permanent furrows.
What can I expect from my crow’s feet line treatment?
People who have their crow’s feet lines treated can expect a reduction in the formation of these ageing lines when they squint, smile or laugh. The results reduce the visible signs of ageing around the eyes and help soften the face, restoring a more youthful appearance.

Will I look ‘frozen’ or ‘done’?
Over treatment of the crow’s feet area muscles contributes less to the terrible ‘frozen look’ than other line treatments.
However, as with all anti-wrinkle treatments at Amara, our ‘subtle, natural results’ approach means we are careful to avoid the done look regardless – this is The Amara Way.
