“How can I change my what?” you may be asking. The oral commissure is the term that cosmetic professionals use to describe the area at the corner(s) of your mouth. Yes, it’s that spot where you’ve noticed a line or crease forming under the corners of the mouth! Although it’s a small area, correcting this age-related change with dermal filler injections can make a big change in your appearance.
The oral commissures are an extension of the “laugh lines”. If you aren’t sure what this term refers to, it is the area beside the nose that extends down to the corners of the mouth. As we age, the skin in this area thins and the cheeks droop. Combined with other structural and volume-related changes in the face, a permanent line can form. Don’t worry though, you don’t have to stop having fun—laugh lines can easily be smoothed with dermal filler injections.
We can also develop creases that extend from the corners of the mouth down the sides of the chin. These are the oral commissures. Volume and structural changes in the chin along with thinning skin and repeated motion trigger their formation. Rest assured, injections of dermal fillers such as Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Radiesse or Juvederm provide natural and soft smoothing to this area.
Changing the look of your oral commissures (the laugh lines) can rejuvenate the appearance of your chin, mouth, and lips. So, go ahead and smile…you’ll look even happier after this treatment!
