When you smile, the corners of your mouth push up your cheeks along the nasolabial fold. These creases look like parentheses around your mouth, which enhance your smile. As your skin ages, nasolabial folds or “smile lines” can become etched in place. These deep lines are often one of the first signs of aging, becoming more pronounced over time. At pēkomd® rejuvenation center, we offer nasolabial fold treatment with dermal fillers at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
If you have parentheses around your mouth when your face is at rest, you could benefit from facial filler treatment. Loss of elasticity and volume in the skin due to aging can create deep lines along your nasolabial fold. While facelift procedures can smooth facial lines, not everyone wants or needs plastic surgery to combat these signs of aging. Facial fillers can be a non-invasive option to refresh your lower face and smooth away smile lines.
Filler Injections for Smile Lines
If you want to plump under your nasolabial fold to erase smile lines, come see us at pēkomd®. We have several dermal filler products that are wonderful for non-surgical nasolabial fold treatment. Most fillers used for smile lines are hyaluronic acid formulas. The one that is right for you depends on the severity of your nasolabial folds. These smile lines can be deeper in the skin and require firmer formulas that can add the needed volume while still allowing for natural movement of the skin around the mouth.
Your smile line treatment can be performed in less than a half an hour with almost immediate results. There is no downtime or recovery needed after your injections – the most common side effects are swelling or bruising from the injections. Depending on the product used, you can expect your results to last for several months or longer before another treatment is needed to maintain the desired appearance.
