Non-Surgical and Surgical Options
Laugh lines are also known as nasolabial folds. These lines run from the corners of your mouth to the nose. They occur as the result of aging. Sun damage and genetics can also play a role in the development of laugh lines. There are several treatments that can be used to erase laugh lines. The treatment that is recommended is contingent upon the severity of the problem. There are surgical and non-surgical treatment options available.
Botox is an option if you want to get rid of laugh lines without surgery. The Botox is injected into the facial muscles. It temporarily weakens and paralyzes the muscles in the area, which helps reduce the laugh lines.
You also have the option of getting dermal fillers. Bellafill, Restylane, Sculptra, Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma are some of the dermal fillers that have been approved to treat laugh lines. They are injected into the crease that extends from the sides of the mouth to the nose. The results can last from six months to one year.
Skin resurfacing is another choice treatment that you can get if you want to reduce laugh lines without surgery. Skin resurfacing can be performed with laser or chemical peels. However, it is important to note that skin resurfacing is ideal for people who have moderate laugh lines.
Surgical options are available for people who have severe laugh lines. You can get a fat transfer procedure. The fat transfer procedure involves taking fat from one area and then placing it into the area around the jaws and eyes. The fat is removed via liposuction. The fat transfer procedure not only reduces the appearance of laugh lines, but it also helps restore lost volume.
Additionally, you can get our FreshLift, our less-invasive facelift procedure. It involves repositioning the tissues in your cheeks. It can also tighten and remove excess tissue in the neck. Cheek implants are another surgical option for treating laugh lines.
