Life is full of reasons to smile, but sometimes in doing so regularly, we can cause lines to form around our mouths over time. Also referred to as ‘laughter lines’, smile lines are deep and inset lines that appear on either side of your lower face and extend out from your mouth. The repeated muscle actions that work as we smile are what causes these lines to appear, and they can often be more pronounced in slimmer people without much facial fat. When skin loses fat and elasticity as we age, these lines can appear much worse in some cases.
Some of us will like our smile lines, as they definitely show signs of happiness and laughter, but others see them as a sign of ageing that they would like to treat. If you’re the latter, then you’ll be pleased to know that smile lines can easily be softened and smoothed out with dermal filler injections at the Dr Rasha Clinic.
