Wrinkles have a way of showing up in all the wrong places, especially around our mouths. Our mouths tend to draw focus, particularly when we’re having a conversation. Unfortunately for most of us, the corners and the area around our mouths are the exact places that wrinkles show up first. Even worse, these fine lines and wrinkles can appear well before we’re considered “old” due to a variety of factors, such as sun exposure, genetics, acne, or smoking cigarettes.
While we rely on our facial muscles to produce a wide range of expressions, these movements create creases and furrows that can eventually become fine lines and wrinkles. Every time we pout, pucker, laugh, smile, or talk, lines begin to form as the skin loses collagen and elastin, which are the substances in the skin that provide volume and suppleness.
While there is no real way to avoid this form of aging over time, there are many options for facial rejuvenation and improving lost facial volume in San Diego County. Restylane is a great dermal filler treatment manufactured by Galderma that can help reduce the most common signs of aging that can occur around the mouth, particularly when combined with other effective cosmetic procedures.
