Treating Dynamic Smile Lines Around The Mouth
Typically any lines that are dynamic (seen when making expressions) in nature are best treated with neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport. Common locations for neurotoxin treatment are the frown lines (glabella, area between eyebrows), forehead lines and crows feet lines (smile lines on the sides of the eyes). Botox can be injected into the peri-oral (around the mouth) dynamic smile lines, but very conservatively and cautiously as to avoid any unwanted loss of necessary muscle funtion around the mouth. I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon experienced in injecting neurotoxins.
