Lines around mouth mostly when smiling

These are not easy to treat since during rest, there is not much to see. The problem is if you fill these areas when you are smiling, it will look abnormal when you are not smiling. Retin A is good to thicken the dermis. Consider other methods to do this as well such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and Infini.
