They say that laughter is good for you. A good laugh helps you lower stress and can relieve anxiety. If you’ve spent a lifetime laughing, good for you! But maybe you’ve started to notice “laugh lines” around your mouth? They’re not so funny, are they?
The “so-called” laugh lines are those creases and folds that begin at the corner of the nose and extend to the corner of the mouth. They don’t really appear as the result of laughter, even though that’s what we think makes them appear! Rather, they are the product of multiple factors: volume loss around the mouth, downward “sagging” of the cheek area (also from volume loss), and increasing skin laxity as we age all combine to form the dreaded laugh lines.
There is news to smile about though! Restylane can help fill in those unwanted creases and folds making them virtually disappear! Because Restylane is a gel made up of hyaluronic acid, it can replace volume that’s been lost and improve the contour of the skin in the area around the mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-like molecule that acts like a mini “sponge”, attracting and holding on to water too. Not only will your lines and creases look smoother, but your skin will look firmer and smoother too.
Restylane is extremely safe and can be injected directly into the line, crease, or fold that you would like to see disappear. The procedure is fast and most importantly, you can see the results instantly! If you’d like to talk to us more about how using Restylane can smooth away your laugh lines, please give us a call today. We can tell you more about this “happy, little procedure” at your free consultation.
