As a natural part of the ageing process, the skin loses collagen and elastin and this causes wrinkles and lines to develop. These are often most noticeable around the eyes, where the skin is thinner to start with, and in fact, lines and wrinkles around the eyes can begin to be noticeable in your 30s. These lines are often called crow’s feet. But what causes these, and what are the advantages of plasma pen treatment for crow’s feet?
What are crow’s feet and what causes these?
“Crow’s feet” is the term we used to describe the fine wrinkles and lines that may appear around the edges and corners of the eyes. These may also be known as smile lines. This is because the lines and wrinkles that develop around the eyes are often caused by expressions, such as smiling and squinting. As a result, these will also be more visible and noticeable when smiling.
In general, crow’s feet tend to form due to a loss of elasticity in the skin, which is a natural part of the ageing process. When we lose this elasticity, the skin struggles to return to its original position after we have smiled, or formed any expression. As a result, lines and wrinkles in the skin will stay, even when we are no longer smiling.
What are the advantages of plasma pen treatment for crow’s feet?
There are a number of ways to treat crow’s feet, but plasma pen treatment can be the most effective option. In fact, there are a number of advantages and benefits to opting for a plasma pen treatment to tackle crows feet. These advantages include:
- Stunning results without surgery- if you want to avoid cosmetic surgery, plasma pen treatment for crows feet can be the number one solution. This treatment uses a state of the art device to create an electric arc which can be directed at the skin tissue directly around the edges of the eyes. This never touches the skin directly but it does cause a reaction under the target area of skin, which then causes the skin to tighten around the eyes. This tightening effect causes the skin to flatten immediately and then still further over time, for a high quality result without needing to go under the knife!
- Immediate results- because of the way that the plasma pen works, you can see the tightening effects on the skin around the eyes immediately! This fast action is one of the aspects that makes plasma pen treatment even more popular than anti-wrinkle injections or chemical peels for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet.
- Long lasting results- not only can the results of this treatment be identified immediately, but these results are incredibly long lasting. In fact, you might not need another treatment for up to 5 years, depending on lifestyle and environmental factors.
