How to Get Rid of Smile Lines
The nasolabial folds, commonly known as “smile lines” or “laugh lines”, become more pronounced as we get older and are a natural sign of ageing. Smile lines are the two skin creases that run from the bottom of the nose curving down to the corners of the mouth. They result from the loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as we age, and become deeper from repetitive smiling and laughing. To some, they may represent a sign of maturity, status and character, or that you lived a happy life! Nonetheless, when they become very deep, they may make you look older, tired or unhappy. This is where our smile line treatment can make a difference to bring back your confidence and refresh your face.
What Are Smile Line Fillers?
Injectable dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid (HA) are a popular way to restore loss of volume by providing structural supports to lift deep creases across the face. Smile line softening with dermal fillers can help replenish a more youthful volume while stimulating natural hyaluronic acid in the treated areas without the need for invasive plastic surgery, or the downtime and lengthy recovery period that comes with it.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Besides softening your facial lines, dermal filler stimulates your natural hyaluronic acid production, which acts as an internal moisturiser to hydrate your skin. Newer generation dermal filler can last up to 18 months. It is EU and FDA approved and CE-marked. The effects of HA-based fillers are reversible through being dissolved by Hyaluronidase if necessary, providing you with a safety net and that extra peace of mind.
How Long Until I See Results?
You should see some effects of the treatment immediately, but the final result may take up to two weeks. We will book a complimentary consultation for two weeks after your treatment to review your progress and discuss any next steps. Every person will have different results depending on lifestyle and other factors, but you can expect to top-up your filler once per year.
We do not recommend smile line softening treatment for pregnant or breastfeeding women or those with allergies specific to this treatment to please check beforehand.
