Crow's Feet are generally a sign of skin damage or aging - actinic elastosis. Sun damage, also known as photoaging, exacerbates the effect of aging and also ages the skin prematurely, as does smoking.
Crow's Feet are caused by the contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle, which sorrounds the eye, and which controls eyelid closure. Crow's feet extend at the right angles to this muscular contraction. Care has to be taken when treating this area with BOTOX®, as the orbicularis oculi must remain able to control the eyelid satisfactorily after the treatment.
