When you are not smiling, does the loose skin around your mouth form creases that make you look old or unhappy? These are called nasolabial folds or smile lines. As we advance in age, the muscles in our face relax and shift forward and down. A lack of elasticity allows the skin to sag with the muscle creating skin folds. Additionally, we lose collagen, so there is less padding under the skin to smooth out creases. Precision Medical Specialists can help you get rid of smile lines with tailored treatment.

For mild nasolabial folds, temporary treatments including dermal fillers, neuromodulators and micro-needling may help camouflage the area. For a permanent solution to advanced smile lines, a surgical facelift will restore the youthful, natural contours of your face, free of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sagging jowls and many other age-related concerns.

Botox for Crow’s Feet

In the early stages, crow’s feet can be cute crinkles at the corner of your eyes when you smile or laugh. As you age, the lines become longer, deeper and a permanent facial feature. Crow’s feet can be aging, and because of the amount of movement around the eye and position of the lines, they can also be very hard to hide.

As one of the earlier signs of aging, having crow’s feet does not mean you require an entire facelift. Botox® is a non-surgical way to address crow’s feet. Botox for crow’s feet works by relaxing the muscle near the eye, and without the tension of the muscle to contract the skin, the crow’s feet flatten out. A series of carefully placed injections can provide fast and effective treatment, with results lasting many months.
