The beauty of the smile fades due to aging as gravity pull our cheek’s fat pads down and as a result of regular muscle movement the ligaments attached to the lips start getting loose and sag. While, the collagen formation process of the body decreases. The sagging of skin near lips and smile lines can be corrected with the help of fillers, threads or ultherapy.
Smile lines result from a number of causes:
- Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure
- Repeated facial expressions
- Too little sleep
- & Stress
Some of the causes of laugh lines may be prevented with good lifestyle habits as a young adult. For example, you can wear sunscreen every day to prevent wrinkles that are related to sun damage. Keeping your skin hydrated also goes a long way, whether you already have smile lines or not. Be sure to drink plenty of water every day.
When it comes to smile lines, there are a variety of treatment options available. Whether you’re looking for surgical options or other cosmetic procedures, it’s best to talk to a dermatologist (skin specialist) or plastic surgeon who’s knowledgeable and experienced in treating wrinkles.
Injectable fillers are among the top choices for people looking to get rid of smile lines without undergoing surgery. Many are made from hyaluronic acid and are injected at the crease that goes from your mouth to your nose. The effects are noticeable right away, but you can also have them reversed if you don’t like the results. Some common brand names include Juvéderm and Restylane. The results typically last several months. However, it’s thought that after repeated injections, some scar tissue may be left behind that causes a more permanent filler effect. Other fillers such as Radiesse, which is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, and Sculptra, which is made of poly-L-lactic acid, may offer more permanent results and can be injected deeper into the facial tissues.
