As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles. One common type of wrinkle that people experience as they age is smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds or “crow’s feet.” These lines extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth or around the corners of the mouth and can make a person look older and more tired.
Many people wonder whether they need surgery to treat their smile lines. The truth is that surgery is not necessary for everyone, and there are a variety of non-surgical treatments that can effectively reduce the appearance of smile lines. Creative Dentistry & MedSpa in Atlanta, Georgia, offers several effective non-surgical treatments for smile lines.
Non-Surgical Treatments for Smile Lines
Modern aesthetic technological advancements make treating your smile lines a snap with non-surgical, non-invasive treatments. Our talented team of aesthetic professionals offer these therapies to help you recapture your youthful, unlined face.
Dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical treatment for smile lines. These fillers are injected beneath the skin to add volume and smooth out wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers are a common type of dermal filler used for smile lines because they are effective, safe and long-lasting. The results of dermal fillers typically last between six months to a year.
Botox® is another popular non-surgical treatment for smile lines. Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, including smile lines. The results of Botox injections typically last between three to six months.
Chemical peels are a non-surgical treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of smile lines by promoting collagen production and skin cell turnover. The results of a chemical peel typically last between three to six months.
If your smile lines are mild to moderate, non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers, Botox and chemical peels may be enough to achieve your desired results. However, if your smile lines are severe and you want a more dramatic improvement, a surgical procedure like a facelift or fat transfer may be necessary.
