Treating Your Smile Lines

By The COZmedics Team - Monday, 6 October 2014

Laughing is fantastic! Whether it’s a small laugh from a simple delight or a laugh until you're on the ground & your tummy hurts. This simple human emotion produces endorphins which are the brain chemical known for that feel good effect.

As we progress through our ages laughing unfortunately has some unintended effects. Beginning in our mid 20s the simple muscle movements involved in producing the familiar ha ha ha sound begin to cause small wrinkles around the mouth, nose and eyes. These small wrinkles are produced as a result of our skin slowly losing collagen and elastin - two key tissue structures that allow our skin to stretch.

Over time the depletion combined with environmental factors such as sun exposure (ak uv damage) and loss of hydration - your small wrinkles become more pronounced and form what's known as nasolabial folds (aka smile or laugh lines)

As we all age at different rates some people may start to see visibly pronounced lines sooner than others. Luckily though it doesn't matter if you already have pronounced lines or are just starting to develop them there are preventative and restorative actions we can take so you can keep on laughing and look good at the same time!

Dermal Fillers to treat & prevent nasolabial folds

Dermal fillers are a safe non-surgical injectable treatment which is comprised of a naturally occurring compound named Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid draws moisture to the skin and induces collagen growth that helps lift and smooth deep lines, wrinkles and furrows.

Due to their virility - dermal fillers are used to treat a wide range of ageing related concerns and are perfectly suited to treat nasolabial folds.

Key Points

  • Walk in walk out procedure with no down time.
  • Safe. No foreign substances. The filler product contains hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring compound.
  • Fast results. Full effects take place up to 7 days post treatment and lasts 6-12 months.
  • Non permanent. Unlike old ‘filler’ treatments which involve collagen. The product is naturally absorbed by your body.
