It’s no secret that wrinkles are the main sign of aging, and their correction is the most important problem of modern dermatology and cosmetology.
To solve these problems, scientists have been conducting research for years while cosmetic companies have been working tirelessly launching new treatments.
Our topic for today is Laugh Lines.
What are they?
Well, the name says it all.
Laugh lines are creases and grooves on the skin, which appear due to active facial expressions, causing frequent muscle contraction.
After all, facial muscles can contract more than 15,000 times a day, and it is not surprising that this leaves a noticeable mark. The saddest thing is that this problem is only getting worse with age. The grooves become deeper and more visible.
But luckily, there are numerous solutions that help to prevent Laugh Lines and, in some cases, fully get rid of them.
Below are a few tips that you may find useful. Some of them are easy to implement at home, so they should become a part of your daily routine while others require a specialist’s help.
TIP NO. 1: WEAR SUNSCREEN
As trivial as it may sound, wearing sunscreen is not a trivial matter. Exposure to the sun accelerates skin aging and makes wrinkles more visible. If you plan to stay in the sun for more than 15 minutes, make sure to apply a sunscreen to your skin with an SPF of at least 15 before leaving the house.
You can apply a sunscreen on top of a moisturizer or use a moisturizer with a UV protection.
If you are in the sun all the time, reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours, and after you sweat or wet your skin.
The sunrays accelerate the age-related changes of the skin and increase the risk of skin cancer.
It is advisable to use natural sunscreens, which contain zinc or titanium oxide because these substances provide protection against the UV light.
TIP NO. 2: USE DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal fillers allow you to quickly solve the problem of Laugh Lines or, in fact, any other facial lines, wrinkles or folds.
Wrinkles become almost invisible within 2 to 5 days after the treatment.
If you have doubts about using dermal fillers, try a single injection in a small area of the face.
For example, introduce a small amount of cosmetic filler between your eyebrows or in the area around the lips, and check out the result.
You will be pleasantly surprised!
After all, dermal fillers really do reduce the depth of facial wrinkles, and the area that is especially suitable for this treatment and gives positive results is the area around the mouth.
However, keep in mind that the results last 6 to 18 months. After that, you should be prepared for touch up treatments.
Remember that dermal fillers sometimes cause insignificant swelling that can persist for several days.
The risk of an allergic reaction is minimal because most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin or calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance naturally found in our bodies.
As for the cost of dermal fillers, the price depends on the type of filler and the administration area.
On Anna’s Cosmetics, you can buy dermal fillers at best prices and suitable for most budgets.
TIP NO. 3: COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
It is also known as Dermarolling or Microneedeling, or Skin needling, and implies the use of an instrument, called a dermaroller, which has very small needles in it. During the dermarolling treatment, your skin gets tiny punctures, which, in turn encourages your skin to renew and regenerate.
In addition to this effect, dermatologists use the dermarollers in combination with various skin rejuvenating and anti-aging products, because such application allows the formulations to penetrate the skin better. You can successfully treat light to medium Laugh Lines.
On Anna’s Cosmetics, you can buy both the dermarollers and the skin care products, the synergy of which ensures visible skin improvement and a glowing complexion.
TIP NO. 4: LASER SKIN RESURFACING
This aesthetic treatment has a similar effect on your skin, i.e. it damages it and encourages to produce new skin cells.
The only difference is that the laser skin resurfacing uses laser to remove skin layers. Further rehabilitation, i.e. healing process, is the key to skin rejuvenating after the treatment. However, unlike skin needling, laser skin resurfacing may require having a general anaesthesia, if you need to treat your whole face.
Therefore, it might be unsuitable to you, based on your medical conditions. Besides, it also requires abandoning the use of certain medications and topical products. After this treatment, you need to take special care of moisturizing your skin well.
On Anna’s Cosmetics, you can find a good variety of healing and moisturizing products that suit this goal perfectly.
TIP NO. 5: THREAD LIFT
With age, our skin loses its ability to hold its weight and begins sagging, creating lines, folds and wrinkles. Thread lift is a type of facial rejuvenation that helps you improve your look by literally lifting small areas of facial tissues with the help of special threads. So you should start considering thread lift as soon as your pesky Laugh Lines turn into nasolabial folds.
Threads are introduced under your skin and lift it, ensuring a smoother and firmer look. This treatment also induces a collagen formation at the treated areas, thus improving your look in two ways: by lifting it and by making it look younger thanks to improved collagen production.
Whichever treatment you find more suitable and useful to your case, keep in mind that healthy lifestyle, sensible eating along with reduced alcohol consumption and plenty of rest play extremely important role in staying beautiful and ageless.
And in case you cannot wait to get rid of the laugh lines that become more and more prominent with every day, choose a filler according to your budget, follow a simple ordering procedure and have it delivered to your doorstep within 36 hours. Simple and fast!
