Frown lines, laugh lines and other mouth wrinkles can now be erased without surgery, anaesthesia, or a long recovery.
Fine lines and pronounced wrinkles around the mouth can age your face and rob you of your self-confidence. At Austin Clinic, we use innovative, state-of-the-art treatments to erase mouth lines without the need for facial surgery.
Mouth lines, including laugh lines, frown lines, and marionette lines that extend from the nose to the lips develop naturally as we age. Beyond that, sun exposure is the chief culprit in that it accelerates the process. Age and UV rays damage the facial fibroblasts responsible for collagen production. Smoking is another factor that disrupts collagen production. Without collagen, the skin becomes deflated. Muscles also lose their ability to manipulate the skin. This turns dynamic (temporary) wrinkles into static (permanent) ones.
Facelift surgery is one option for eliminating mouth lines. Both mini-lifts and deep-plane face lifts can correct them. For patients seeking a less invasive method for rejuvenating facial skin, Austin Clinic offers several options. Our expert injectors use dermal fillers to restore volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The results are immediate and may last a year or longer. Muscle-relaxing injections can be used to help prevent the formation of mouth lines. In-clinic treatments such as chemical peels and laser treatments can be combined with at-home skincare products to help skin look brighter, fuller, and firmer.
