Wrinkles are a normal part of getting older and certain types are more prominent than others as the skin ages. Smile lines are a good example and they can be some of the most striking wrinkles on the face.
Some people may feel self-conscious about smile lines and seek cosmetic treatment. In this case, we recommend smile line fillers and we’ve put together a guide to help you decide if it’s the right treatment for you.
Defining Smile Lines
Also known as laughter lines, smile lines are wrinkles that form on the edges of the mouth and around the eyes. They also appear when you smile because of the facial muscles contracting.
When you’re young, these lines usually disappear, and the skin can bounce back through the large volumes of elastin in the body. This elastin breaks down over time and it becomes harder for the skin to return to normal.
What Are Smile Line Fillers?
This treatment is a type of injectable dermal filler that’s transferred into the skin. Made from a naturally occurring compound in the body called hyaluronic acid, the filler is injected into areas where smile lines are prominent.
The dermal filler stimulates the growth of new collagen in the skin and removes the smile line creases. The skin is revitalised and you’ll benefit from a smoother complexion.
What’s Involved In The Process?
Before having a smile lines filler procedure, you’ll be taken through a consultation with an Omniya skincare expert. The consultation will determine if the treatment is right for you, assess your medical history and make you aware of all aspects of the procedure.
After the consultation has been completed, the appointment will be set up and you’ll be able to come in for a quick treatment that can be done on a lunch break. The hyaluronic acid will be injected into the specified area that needs treating. You may experience a slight scratching on the skin that shouldn’t be painful.
The results will be dependent on the amount of filler that is injected. There may be bruising and soreness in the hours after treatment and this should pass after 24 – 48 hours.
