Some wrinkles can become deep crevices or furrows and can become especially prevalent around the mouth and neck, known as marionette lines or nasolabial folds. Marionette lines around your mouth can change your facial expression and sometimes make you look unhappy when you’re not. Nasolabial lines commonly known as smile lines or laugh lines are the lines which run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Smiling and laughing are healthy for the heart and soul and reflections of a life well lived. Unfortunately, as we age these folds become deeper causing the skin to sag. This can be due to sun exposure damaging the skin, loss of collagen production making the skin look thin and loss of fat which can cause the cheeks to sag.
If these wrinkles, and folds are beginning to bother you, Dr Victoria has plenty of experience in non-surgical treatments to correct them. For wrinkles around the mouth, we mostly use dermal fillers to restore lost volume in the skin, and to stimulate collagen production. Our treatments fill in the wrinkles and folds while improving your skin tone and texture to give you a more youthful appearance.
Our treatments are often a blend of technologically advanced procedures and more traditional approaches while we give the best patient care from the moment you come in for a consultation. This patient care doesn’t just stop after your treatment, but we offer free ongoing advice to our patients whenever they have any questions.
