How to Eliminate Laugh Lines


Laugh lines occur from smiling, becoming more apparent as they deepen with age.

These lines run from each side of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth and are caused by the reduction in fat, elastin and collagen that occurs as a natural part of the aging process. Although medical science can’t help stop

the aging process completely, med spa treatments can help minimize some of the evidence.

Natural Ways to Prevent Laugh Lines

There are a few things you can do to prevent laugh lines from appearing in the first place, like wearing sunscreen. The powerful rays of the sun break down collagen and damage the skin cells. Wearing sunscreen helps mitigate this damage.


Smoking can contribute to the development of laugh lines as well. Among other health issues, smoking accelerates the aging of the skin. The chemicals in cigarettes damage collagen and elastin, while the nicotine constricts blood vessels preventing the skin from receiving essential nutrients.

Can Laugh Lines be Eliminated?


Laugh lines can be minimized or eliminated by a quick med spa visit for treatment with dermal fillers.

These Injectable fillers are made of naturally occurring substances already found in the body, and help restore some of the volume loss that’s responsible for deep laugh lines.

The entire treatment process takes only a few minutes and the results are almost immediate.  Although injectable fillers won’t prevent aging, continued maintenance injections will help you keep a youthful look for longer, offering a great solution for those pesky laugh lines.
