Your mouth moves thousands of times a day. Between laughing at your co-worker’s jokes to talking on the phone in the evening with your son who is away at college, not to mention three meals (and some snacks thrown in there) your facial muscles are responsible for hundreds of different movements.
It’s no surprise then, when those muscles start to show signs of aging and creases develop in the skin around them. Especially when they’re on your face.
The nasolabial fold is one of the most prominent creases on your face. Sometimes called “smile lines,” it’s the area that frames your mouth when you’re smiling, extending from the corners of your lips up to each side of your nose.
Smiling is a great thing. But when you’re not smiling, and those creases are just as deep as ever…it can detract from your appearance and make you look older than you feel.
Fortunately, cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers can help!
Smoothing Out Smile Lines
There’s a simple and non-surgical way to smooth out your nasolabial folds/smile lines to give you a plumper, fuller surface that hides deep wrinkles. Dermal fillers are easily to apply and can provide results for several months at a time, allowing you to touch up a couple of times a year as necessary.
When combined with other injectables like Botox (which relaxes the facial muscles) the effects can last even longer.
