Smoker’s line

Wrinkles are the main markers of skin aging that lead people to consult. They are mainly located on areas of the face that are stimulated by movement, such as the wrinkles at the corners of the mouth, otherwise known as smoker's lines. First of all, it is important to know that wrinkles fall into two categories: static and dynamic.

A dynamic wrinkle is a fold that is formed by repeated movement of the skin. The loss of elasticity and collagen due to aging plays a role in the appearance of this fold. With time, wrinkles will deepen and become more and more apparent, especially on the forehead, eyebrows and at the corners of the eyes and mouth.

A wrinkle is called static when it is present at rest. They appear when the skin has lost enough elasticity and collagen for a fold to form durably. Thus, static wrinkles often appear when dynamic wrinkles deepen the skin enough to leave a permanent mark. They are accompanied by a general sagging of the skin and are more difficult to treat.

Wrinkles at the corners of the mouth are dynamic at first. It is an area that is constantly moving, which is why they are among the first visible wrinkles and are the ones that quickly leave marks that later become static wrinkles. Mouth wrinkles are therefore often more difficult to remove. This is why a wrinkle reduction treatment is most effective when done at an early stage.

To treat wrinkles in the mouth, we often offer a combination of treatments that include hyaluronic acid Dermal fillers, a complex sugar already present in the human body. These are commonly referred to as Dermal "fillers". As opposed to botulinum toxin injections, which relax the muscles in order to soften the features and are less effective in the case of wrinkles at the corners of the mouth, which are more permanent. Dermal fillers help restore the convexity of facial lines, all with a natural-looking result.

For an optimal and above all-natural result, it is important to emphasize the importance of the combination of treatments. Indeed, the balance of the face and lips is a delicate and delicate balance. It is often necessary to act as a whole to re-harmonize the face as a whole. The treatment of wrinkles in the mouth is perfected with the use of technologies that heat the skin, such as pulsed light, radiofrequency and ultrasound. In addition, threads can be used around the mouth to perfectly harmonize the volumes.

Thus, it is important to adapt the treatment to the overall effect you are looking for. Wrinkles in the mouth can be reduced with various tools, which can also restore the radiance of your face in its entirety.
