What are Smile Lines?
Smile lines are peri-oral lines or lines that form around the mouth. They are due to muscle pull with smiling and age-related volume loss in the hollows underneath the cheekbones. It is normal to have Smile Lines and always good to be smiling, but if deeply ingrained, they can contribute to an aged look.
How are Smile Lines treated?
Smile Lines are treated with Dermal Fillers in a two-fold approach.
First, the existing lines themselves are directly injected to soften their appearance, taking care not to bulk the area.
Second, the hollows underneath the cheek bones are subtly volumised to improve the underlying tissue support, taking care not to produce a round face. By addressing the hollows and building support, new lines are prevented from forming.
The end result is softening of existing Smile Lines and a smoother contour between the mid and lower face that minimises new lines.
