How to Eliminate Extended Wrinkles from Laugh Lines?

I currently have little lines that which extend horrizontally from my laugh lines (all though some extend in same direction). Which procedures or fillers would work best in this situation?

CO2 laser resurfacing or dermal fillers can be used to treat this condition

Depending on the depth of the lines, one or the other or sometimes both can be used to address this condition. Your physician should be able to give your options that best fits your skin type and goals.

I hope I was helpful.

If the lines are indeed fine, you may be well treated with the CO2 laser. The laser is a temporary fix, but all fixes are. This is a good time of year to consider the laser as it will sensitize you to the sun and you should be less red by the time spring gets here.

Injection into horizontal laugh lines

These are difficult to manage due to the repeated smiling. Fillers such as Prevelle silk or other hyaluronic fillers introduced superficially may have some benefit but caution and avoiding excessive injection in this area is advised to avoid excessive fullness.
