Can I fill smile lines?

Are the smile lines around your mouth making you look older than you are?  Although smiling and laughing are natural expressions, they cause unwanted lines to develop around the mouth over time.  If you are bothered by these lines, chances are you’re wondering – Can I fill smile lines.

What are smile lines?

Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds or laugh lines, are the lines that start on either side of the nose, and extend down to the outer corner of the mouth.   

Can I fill smile lines?

Yes, you can fill in smile lines with dermal fillers.  Doctors generally opt for hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers to fill in smile lines.  HA fillers are a great choice for filling in smile lines, because they have the ability to attract and hold onto moisture, so they add volume to smile lines, and give them a plump, smooth appearance.

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus for smile lines

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus both contain HA as the active ingredient, and are primarily formulated for the treatment of mild-to-moderate wrinkles such as smile lines.

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus not only fill in smile lines, they also improve the texture of the skin.

How Juvederm Ultra & Juvederm Ultra Plus work

The area being targeted is numbed using a topical anesthetic and a tiny needle is used to inject the filler into the smile lines.  The filler instantly adds volume to the area.   

There may be some bruising and swelling after treatment, but this usually resolves within 2-3 days (click here to learn more).
