NO LAUGHING MATTER
WHAT ARE LAUGHTER / CHEEK LINES?
Laughter lines / cheek lines are lines which form around the areas of the cheek when we laugh or smiler. These lines are different and separate to NASOLABIAL FOLDS although they typically occur in nearby areas, or in conjunction with nasolabial folds. LAUGHTER / CHEEK L
WHAT CAUSES LAUGHTER / CHEEK LINES?
The cause of laughter lines is multifactoral, including atrophic changes that occur with age in the skin, subcutaneous tissue, ligaments, skeletal muscle combined with gravity. However, it is important to have a face-to-face assessment to find the true cause of your laughter lines, as they may be caused by the skin (thin, dehydrated skin), loss of volume, shifting fat pads, or a combination of all - in order to find the right treatment for you.
HOW CAN THEY BE TREATED?
DERMAL FILLERS have their use in the treatment of laughter lines, but is dependent on the cause. If laughter lines are caused by loss of volume, then dermal fillers would be a good treatment option. DERMAL FILLERS last between 6 - 9 months.
If the volume loss is excessive, and / or the lines are widespread, then SCULPTRA is recommended. SCULPTRA produces an overall firmness and natural volume to a large area that may not be achieved with the use of dermal fillers. The results of SCULPTRA can take several weeks to be seen, but once achieved the desired effect lasts 2 - 3 years.
PROFHILO is another potential treatment option, that cures lines and wrinkles as opposed to simply filling them. Again, depending on the cause and extent of laughter lines, PROFHILO can be an excellent treatment option.
If the lines are caused by dehydration and / or a build up of dead skin, and / or the lines are mild - to - moderate, a combination approach of CHEMICAL PEELS and SKIN BOOSTERS may be recommended, to restore hydration and elasticity whilst resurfacing the top layers of the skin.
As each treatment option has it's own use and mechanism of action and it depends on the cause(s) of your laughter lines as to which treatment - or combination of treatments - is most appropriate, we would advise booking a free consultation to find which one is best for you.
