How to get rid of lines around mouth
Wrinkles and creases around our mouths often give people the impressions of being old, tired and sad. Down-turning of oral commissures, marionette lines and those fine perioral “smokers’ lines” are caused by a loss of facial volume and skin firmness. Fortunately, dermal fillers can help you to wind back the clock and achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing the scalpel, and change that ‘sad’ look into a perfect smile. Dermal fillers can restore loss of volume by providing structural supports to lift up deep creases and smooth out fine lines.
Treatment with dermal fillers not only can replenish lost volume, but also stimulate natural hyaluronic acid and collagen production. You will be amazed at the difference it makes by softening those wrinkles around your mouth and restoring your mouth corners to their previous up-turned appearance.
When combined with treatments such as “smile line” softening, cheek augmentation, tear trough correction and wrinkle injections, we can help you to achieve a younger, more youthful, rejuvenated appearance, without the need of invasive plastic surgery.
