Laugh lines (also known as smile lines) are the wrinkles that form on the sides of your mouth, sometimes extending towards your eyes. They become more prominent when you laugh or smile.
While these wrinkles are nearly impossible to avoid because they come with age, there are several options available to help you get rid of them.
Smile Lines Treatment Options
With a multitude of treatment options available, everyone can experience smoother smile lines. The solution could be something as simple and as cost-effective as an over the counter skin product. For more severe cases, surgery may be recommended.
Over the Counter Skin Care Products
Over the counter (OTC) products like ones containing retinol break down the free radicals that cause wrinkles. Vitamin C, peptides, and hydroxy acids are also used to treat fine lines.
The downside to OTC anti-wrinkle products is that it can take months to see a change, and the results aren’t permanent.
Facial fillers are made from hyaluronic acid and are injected into the sunken in areas (wrinkles) of the face. This treatment will give you immediate results, but they will only last a few months
Botox is also administered through small injections much like fillers. The solution freezes the muscles of the treatment area in the given area. Some initial swelling post Botox treatment is normal. Optimal results will be seen a few days after. The effects are temporary, and the procedure will need to be repeated every few months if you want to keep up the look.
