SMILE LINES AROUND MOUTH - CAUSES & TREATMENT - THE HARLEY MEDICAL GROUP
Smile lines and wrinkles around the mouth
Our faces are what people first see and often what they remember most about us so it can be difficult when we look in the mirror and see that we’re showing signs of ageing. Noticing lines and wrinkles between the nose and mouth, or sagging skin around the eyes or along the jawline can be upsetting and make us look much older than we feel.
Why do we get them?
Lines around the mouth are a natural part of the ageing process and this area, along with the eye area, is particularly susceptible to ageing as we use these muscles when talking and making facial expressions. The muscles can become tired and the skin loses its elasticity due to a loss in collagen, and for some of us that means deep lines and wrinkles.
Prevention and reduction
It’s not possible to completely prevent lines and wrinkles on the face but there are ways to delay the onset and reduce their visibility. The most important factors in healthy, young-looking skin are following a healthy lifestyle and wearing rich moisturiser with built in SPF15 or higher.

We know it can be difficult to come to terms with how our faces change as we get older and that’s why we offer the most effective treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. All the treatments we offer can be used to soften deep lines or completely erase them, depending on how natural you want the result to look.
