If you find that you have smile lines on either side of your mouth, chances are you don’t find them funny at all. Smile lines or nasolabial folds can make you look old, angry, and tired, but it is possible to say goodbye to smile lines with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers will fill in those lines, and the results will be soft and natural.
Juvederm and Restylane
Juvederm and Restylane are two dermal fillers that are very effective wrinkle treatments, as they add volume and fullness to the skin. They are hyaluronic fillers and are very effective in smoothing the fine smile lines around the mouth, as well as other small depressions on the face. Most patients notice an immediate softening of smile lines after just one treatment with these dermal fillers (click here).
Treatment with Juvederm only takes a few minutes, as the filler is injected under the skin using a very fine needle. The hyaluronic acid formulation used in Juvederm attracts water, and this ensures that lines are diminished and fullness is achieved.
Depending on the areas being injected the treatment session can take between 15 to 45 minutes. A topical anesthetic is usually used, as well as numbing cream if required.
These dermal fillers have both been approved by the FDA. Restylane in February 2004, and Juvederm in June 2006.
You can say goodbye to smile line with these dermal fillers for a long time, as results can last up to 9 months. Both Restylane and Juvederm can also be used for lip augmentation.
