There are two types of facial wrinkle:
These are caused by repetitive facial movements. Each time there is muscle activity, a hollow is formed under the skin surface hence we see lines with each facial expression.
Static wrinkles are lines or folds that are visible even when a face is relaxed. These are caused by gravity and loss of fat, collagen, and skin’s ability to stretch
Crow’s feet are both dynamic and static. They are mostly produced by dynamic activity like squinting and smiling but they are also caused by loss of collagen and elastin.
Skin movement and loss of skin elasticity and collagen because of aging are the main reasons for crow’s feet. The skin around your eyes is very thin and can be the first area of your face to show signs of aging. As we age, skin loses it plumpness and ability to stretch and fine lines and wrinkle are an unavoidable and natural part of the process. Crow’s feet are the fine lines that appear around your eyes. These are developed over time as muscle contraction occurs and pulls the eye skin inward each time we make a facial expression. Free radicals, hormonal changes, and sun exposure add up to the damage.
Crow’s feet may start small and unnoticeable, but over time and without the proper attention they can deepen. These lines develop earlier than you might think, around the mid to late twenties, and many are not expecting it.

Laser Resurfacing is a procedure that removes the upper layers of the skin resulting in newer younger looking skin.

Who would have thought that a happy expression such as smiling and laughing results in the formation of lines. Though we always want to think that everyone is beautiful, there are some who think that wrinkles make them look older than they are and can turn that smile into a frown. Over time, repetitive muscle action of smiling makes the skin lax creating permanent creases. It also wears down the tissue that even if you already stop smiling, wrinkles and lines around the eyes remain. Crow’s feet is also considered a smile or laugh line. There are several factors why crow’s are developed, such as; too much exposure to the sun, lifestyle (smoking), and forceful movement. However, more often than not, smile lines are caused by aging.
Crow’s feet can be taken as an indication that we have many reasons to laugh and be happy about and can even bring personality to your face but some feel that these little crinkles around the eyes make them look older.

In some cases, you may want to try a combination of treatments.
Crow’s feet is difficult to hide but you may try doing the following. Apply moisturizing eye cream twice a day. Once before you put on make-up and another at night time. Apply primer to fill deep wrinkles for a smoother look. Use light to medium concealer and foundation because heavy make-up makes the crow’s feet more distinct. If you don’t have time to get a new foundation, try applying your current one with a damp sponge. Blend it well for flawless, light coverage. Avoid using loose powder because it settles in your wrinkles. Use a highlighter on your cheeks and use dramatic lipstick to keep the attention away from your eyes.
