While smiling and laughing a lot may be good for your soul, they can also leave behind unsightly laugh lines that you might not find so funny. Luckily, there are several treatment options available to erase those lines, leaving you free to keep on smiling.
Restylane®, a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, is very effective in eliminating laugh lines. Loss of firmness and lines and wrinkles that occur with age are due in part to decreasing levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Restylane® not only replaces lost volume in the treatment area, but also helps your body to repopulate depleted hyaluronic acid.
2. Fraxel® Dual Laser
Fraxel® is a very popular in-office treatment because it essentially kills two birds with one stone. This unique laser has two wavelength settings, each designed to correct a different problem in the skin. One wavelength addresses pigmentation issues, such as age spots, while the other wavelength targets deeper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production. Collagen, which can be described as the supportive building blocks underneath the skin, naturally diminishes with age. Replacing lost collagen ultimately reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, such as laugh lines.
3. Professional Beauty Treatments
Other in-office treatments such as medical-grade facials and chemical peels can also effectively treat laugh lines as well as improve your overall skin tone. Professional facials tackle lines and wrinkles by combining cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating to restore firmness and elasticity in the skin. Chemical peels remove the dull, dead surface skin cells, revealing smoother, more luminous skin underneath. Consistently pampering your skin with these nourishing, non-invasive beauty treatments is a wonderful way to care for your skin and slow down the aging process.
