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.



"I would 100% recommend Amara when getting an anti-wrinkle treatment! This super clinic is so discreet, but the level of professionalism when you walk through the door is second to none. The staff are lovely and my treatments here have been brilliant. Amara is the real deal and the doctors never rush and always explain everything properly. For me, the 2-week check-up to make sure the results are what you want is important because I am scared of the frozen look and this way I avoid it. Overall I would describe Amara as a quality experience and I'll keep going back."

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.



Frequently Asked Questions

Smile lines, or nasolabial folds, are the creases or lines that form from the sides of the nose extending to the corners of the mouth. These lines are a natural part of facial expression and can become more pronounced with age or due to factors like sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices. Smile lines are categorized as static wrinkles, meaning they are present even when the face is at rest.

Non-surgical options like dermal fillers can add volume and smooth out the lines. Additionally, treatments like laser resurfacing can promote collagen production and improve skin texture. Surgical options such as facelifts or fat transfer may also be considered for more significant results. It is advisable to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine the most suitable approach based on individual needs.

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, such as frown lines or crow’s feet. While it may have some effect on smile lines, it is not typically the primary treatment option for these static lines. Dermal fillers are often more effective in addressing smile lines as they provide volume to the area, reducing their appearance.

The longevity of smile line fillers can vary depending on the specific filler used, individual factors, and the technique of administration. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, are frequently utilized for the treatment of smile lines. The effects of these fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. Over time, the body gradually breaks down the filler material, and maintenance treatments are usually necessary to sustain the results.

The cost of fillers for smile lines can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used, the quantity required, the expertise of the healthcare provider, and the geographical location. Generally, the cost ranges from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per treatment session.

  • Avoid touching or rubbing the treated area
  • Avoid strenuous activities
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure
  • Avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications

severity of the lines and the individual’s muscle strength. Typically, the treatment involves several injections into the specific muscles responsible for the formation of smile lines. It is crucial to consult with a healthcare professional who can evaluate your specific needs and provide a personalized treatment plan.

The duration of the smile line removal procedure can vary depending on the specific treatment chosen and individual factors. Non-surgical options like dermal filler injections typically take around 30 minutes to an hour, including the preparation and administration process.

The level of discomfort experienced during smile line removal procedures can vary depending on individual pain tolerance and the specific treatment method used. Non-surgical treatments may involve some discomfort, but a topical anesthetic or numbing cream can be applied to minimize any pain.

Common side effects of non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. Infection or allergic reactions are rare, but they may occur.

At Amara we only use the highest quality products which is why we use Allergan's anti-wrinkle product and not a cheaper biosimilar (generic) product. It is FDA approved and the most studied of its kind which means we can stand by its clinical profile.

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!
I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)
