Remember mother’s words of wisdom? “Don’t make that face or it will stay that way!” As it turns out she wasn’t kidding. As you age, the areas of your skin that crease repeatedly can cause lines to become etched into your face, and laugh lines are among the most common. These creases along either side of your mouth spell O-L-D, and there’s nothing funny about that. If you’ve dared to enjoy the pleasures of life by laughing every now and again, shame on you. Luckily, there are a few options for getting your face seriously young again.
A short, easy treatment, injectable fillers will have you leaving the clinic looking like you’ve enjoyed nary a chuckle in your life. These temporary injectables use a combination of proteins and other ingredients to fill in lost volume in your deep creases, creating a smoother look that will have you smiling with no repercussions.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The latest craze in the cosmetic enhancement world is laser skin rejuvenation. Laser treatments come in a range of forms and use energy from a laser beam to stimulate your skin’s healing properties. Laser treatments can zap the age out of your face by minimizing laugh lines as well as other imperfections.
Microneedling/Microdermabrasion + Facials & Chemical Peels
Last but not least, microneedling or microdermabrasion combined with surface facial treatments can help you say sayonara to your laugh lines for once and for all. Microneedling and microdermabrasion both encourage new skin cells to replace your old ones. When combined with routine facials and chemical peels, you can enjoy completely rejuvenated skin that will have you joyously kicking your laugh lines to the curb. So go ahead and laugh — and be sure to have your local med spa on speed dial.
