Dermal Fillers for Smile Lines FAQs

Posted on

As we age, creases around the mouth become a lot more noticeable due to the fat pockets depleting, as they become deeper than before. Another name for these lines is the nasolabial lines, which tend to appear from the side of the nose downwards to the side of the mouth. Dermal fillers are used to fill these smile lines, to help soften the appearance of these lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers include hydronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance. 

What are the benefits of dermal fillers for smile lines?

  • Helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, which helps to make the skin look rejuvenated.
  • Reduces the depth of your smile lines, which helps to give a more contoured look. 
  • Can help to prevent sagging skin, which gives the client a more youthful look. 
  • A quick procedure time, with a quick recovery time.
  • Long-lasting results, that show just a few days after the treatment 

How long does the procedure take?

The actual procedure itself should only take around 20 minutes after all medical backgrounds are covered before the treatment. It will also give your practitioner time to give you any aftercare instructions, and to deal with any concerns you might have after leaving the clinic. 

How quickly will I see the results after my treatment?

The effects of having dermal fillers for smile lines are immediate. This means that as soon as the area has been injected you will be able to see your results. This can also be useful for yourself and your practitioner, to ensure that you are both happy with the results. Therefore, if the area needs more dermal filler injecting it should be quick and easy to do so. 

How long does the filler last?

Dermal fillers for smile lines last from 9 -15 months, individual results may vary. Your results will last longer if you regularly have your filler topped up regularly.
