Skin Concerns

Crow's Feet Wrinkles

Crow’s feet is the common name given to wrinkles which appear at the side of the eyes, stretching out towards the temples. The term ‘crow’s feet’ developed because of how the lines splay out; in a similar shape to a crow’s claw or foot. The main cause of crow’s feet is a decrease in the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are responsible for our skin’s elasticity, but production drops as we age.

The skin around the eyes is 40% thinner than in other areas of our face, making it more delicate. This is where most people start to display the first signs of ageing. While crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eye area are normal they’re also one of the most common ageing concerns.

Laughing, concentrating, squinting or frowning; whenever you move your face your muscles contract. After years of frequent contraction, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors – such as exposure to sunshine, smoking or pollution – lines and wrinkles begin to form around the corners of your eyes. The eyes are often the first place to reveal the signs of ageing, as the skin is thinner and more prone to creasing.

Royal Mayfair Medical Facial 

There are a number of skin peels at London Skin, designed to brighten and refresh the skin. The treatment involves applying a non-toxic chemical to the surface of the skin to encourage cell turnover and exfoliation. As dead skin cells are removed, skin appears clearer and more radiant and wrinkles are softened. 

London Anti-Wrinkle injectables

Injectable anti-ageing treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out crow’s feet wrinkles, without the need of surgery. During treatment, you can expect your practitioner to administer a small amount of solution into the skin to improve the appearance around the eyes, promoting firmness and delivering a more youthful structure to your skin around the eyes. 

Dermal Needling 

This treatment is also known as a collagen induction therapy which punctures fine, tiny holes in the skin to encourage skin cell renewal and stimulate the body’s natural healing response. 

When this response is activated, collagen and elastin (two proteins that are fundamental in warding off wrinkles) are produced to create an immediate brighter, younger look. This treatment is also effective in reducing scarring, evening any pigmentation and UV ray exposure. This would be a good option to treat multiple concerns in one treatment.

Plasma Pen 

Plasma Pen is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can enhance the appearance of your skin.

The plasma gas produced by the pen encourages the production of new cells and collagen to create rejuvenation, plump skin. Superficial wounds will be apparent on the skin but will flake off in the days following the treatment to reveal gorgeous results.
