As we age, and the more we laugh and smile, lines and folds in our facial skin appear and become more visible. Over time, those lines may become deeper and form permanent wrinkles that are present whether you’re smiling or not.
Are you among the group of many adults struggling with smile lines around the mouth and nasolabial folds (creases that extend along the bottom of the nose down to the mouth – aka “laugh lines”)? Don’t fret! You have options!
These four non-surgical treatments help to improve the appearance of laugh lines and smile lines, and restore your youthful look:
- Dermal filler injections w/Dr. Becker: Hyaluronic Acid fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm® are commonly used to smooth lines for immediate results that may last up to a year. Other injectable filler options, such as Sculptra® and Bellafill® deliver improved results over time and are longer lasting (compared to HA fillers).
- CO2 laser treatments are customizable to treat deeper facial lines & wrinkles and fully resurface the skin with minimal downtime. Results are long-lasting when accompanied by a good skincare regimen and minimal sun exposure. Periodic maintenance treatments may be recommended to extend results.
- Microneedling + Morpheus8 treatments are great for smile lines, as they penetrate into the layers of skin to help to stimulate collagen growth and skin tightening. A series of treatments are typically recommended for optimal results.
- High-quality, medical-grade skincare products containing retinol, AHAs, BHAs, and Vitamin A + Vitamin C are great for the early treatment of smile lines and nasolabial folds. Using high-quality skincare products in addition to the treatments above also helps maintain longer-lasting results!
Individual results may vary.
