Who would have thought that something as positive as the act of smiling results to formation of lines around the mouth . It can be taken as an indication that we have many reasons to laugh and be happy about but some feel that smile lines make them look older than they really are which can turn that smile into a frown.

Smile lines, also known as laugh lines, are facial deep fine lines and wrinkles on either side of the lower half of your face that expands out from the mouth and at times appears around the eyes.

There are several factors why smile lines are developed such as too much exposure to the sun, lifestyle (smoking), and forceful movement. However, more often than not, smile lines are caused by ageing.

Repetitive muscle action of smiling makes the skin lax creating permanent creases. It also wears down the tissue that even if you already stop smiling, wrinkles and lines around the mouth remains.

It is fortunate that it is possible to get rid of laugh lines by going through a treatment called dermal filler

As the ageing process continues, the skin in the face and neck tends to lose firmness and becomes saggy which forms fine lines and wrinkles.

There are two types of facial wrinkles

Dynamic Wrinkles

These are form from facial movement. They are caused by muscle activity seen with motion like crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes or the lines on your forehead when your eyebrow is raised.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are lines or folds that is visible even when face is relaxed like laugh lines. These types of wrinkles are from due to loss of collagen and elasticity

Before, we can only get surgery to enhance our face but now, we have several non-invasive treatment to choose from

One of the most popular treatment in Australia is injectable fillers also known as Dermal Fillers. Dermal fillers are quick and non-invasive way to enhance features. Dermal fillers are gel-liked substance injected underneath the skin to add volume to soft tissue and fill in fine lines and wrinkles giving you a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can replace facial volume loss in the facial structural component.

When fillers are injected under the skin, it attract water and after few days will swell mildly and start to give volume. The filler produces a lifting effect and over time will be broken down to your body naturally

There are two fillers widely available for treatments, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Polyacrylamide (PA). The former being the main one used in treatments while the latter is being virtually unused.

Result may differ and effect may not be as longer lasting as filler but if you want to go down the path of natural remedies for smile lines, you have these options.

  1. Oil is good for moisturizing. Apply oil around your mouth and laugh lines as and massage it. You may leave it overnight for better results.
  2. Apply lemon or pineapple on your wrinkles. The acid helps tighten loose skin and the antioxidants free radicals
  3. Add some spice to your anti ageing routine by mixing cinnamon and/or turmeric to honer and apply it on the face like a mask
  4. Drink plenty of water because staying hyderated is good for the skin
  5. Facial Excercise
  • With lips partially separated, pull the corners of the mouth back toward the face
  • Pull back, as far as possible, while keeping the lips parallel
  • Hold for about 10 seconds
  • Relax and repeat 10 to 25

Do fillers make skin sag?

One of the concerns of many in terms of filler is the fear that skin will stretch. Contrary to the hear say that filler will make it sag, it actually won’t. Filler do not have lasting effect on your skin and will not require more filler in the future for the same results. In reality, with most cases, after the filler fades away the skin will recover and revert to the way it looks

What is in dermal filler?

Dermal filling is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear gooey sugar derivative which is naturally found in the body and can hold 1000 times its own weight in water. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist. However, HA in dermal filler is made in the laboratory. Its levels in our skin do change over time and as our body modifies or breaks it down with enzymes as part of our metabolic processes.

You will see immediate results after your procedure. Give at least 7 days for the filler to settle. In general, fillers last up to 12 months however, there are factors that may affect this such as gender, exposure to the sun, alcohol intake, smoking, and exercise. It is also necessary to know how to maintain it so that the effect will remain longer. You may also want to consider additional facial rejuvenation to amplify the results and endurance

Local anaesthetic will be used by your doctor to numb the area and reduce discomfort. Another option that works very well is the use of a cannula – a thin plastic tube which has a powerful vacuum device on the end – which helps to reduce bruising and discomfort markedly.  It is able to weave its way around the face and under the skin. Medical grade numbing creams may be helpful also along with the use of ice to lessen the sensation.

For lip enhancement, dental anaesthesia can be used.

How does laugh lines filling work ?

Laugh lines are treated by injecting the filler directly to the lines. There are several injectable fillers available – permanent, semi permanent and non-permanent. So far, the most common is non-permanent because its effects are temporary and can be easily reversed if you are not satisfied with how they look. Permanent filler can only be removed surgically.

Once injected under the skin, the filler help increase the volume from the inside and smoothens the laugh lines which results to improvement on how you look.

In the average, treatment will only take 20 minutes. Topical anaesthesia is applied to lessen discomfort
