Whoever said, “laughter is the best medicine” clearly have not seen laugh lines. While it is undoubtedly healthy for the body, mind, and soul to laugh loud and often, these jovial outbursts of joy leave a mark. Also known as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or smile lines, laugh lines are a part of aging, especially for those who tend to be very expressive. If your laugh lines are starting to bother you there is an excellent filler that can help smooth these wrinkles out and reduce their appearance. The filler is called Juvéderm Vollure XC and is available at Siti Med Spa in San Diego. To learn more about this filler for laugh lines, read on or give us a call at (619) 717-8484.
What are Laugh Lines?
Laugh lines consist of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Together, these wrinkles and fine lines are known as laugh lines or smile lines.
Nasolabial folds are the fine lines and wrinkles that go from the corner of your nose down to the outside of the lips.
Marionette lines are the fine lines that go from the outside of the mouth down to the jawline on both sides of your chin.
What Causes Laugh Lines?
Laugh lines are caused by the combination of a few factors, working in conjunction as you age to create unwanted wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Some of the primary causes include:
Repeating facial expressions over time
A reduction in the amount of elastin and collagen produced as you age
A reduction in the amount of fat in your face as you age
Juvéderm Vollure XC to Treat Laugh Lines
Juvéderm Vollure XC is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds—with results that last up to 18 months! Although Juvéderm Vollure XC was just approved by the FDA this year, the formula has been on the market in Europe and Canada since 2013. This highly effective injectable filler works beneath the surface of your skin to add volume, smooth smile lines and wrinkles, and restore your face to its youthful contours.
Juvéderm Vollure XC Has Proven to Be the Most Effective
While a variety of other dermal fillers also do an adequate job of treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines, Juvéderm Vollure XC has proven to be the most effective. Juvéderm Vollure XC is a thin filler that works to smooth out the wrinkles and fine lines around your nose and mouth. The great thing about Juvéderm Vollure XC is that since it is a thin filler it does not overpump the region, leaving your face looking natural and youthful.
How Does Juvéderm Vollure XC Work?
In order to understand how Juvéderm Vollure XC works, it’s important to first know how nasolabial lines and folds develop and deepen. You can probably guess how laugh-lines got their name—they appear as the result of repeated movement. So, big laughers and talkers with expressive faces are more susceptible to the development of lines, folds, and wrinkles around the mouth. Additionally, sun damage and the natural aging process both contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elasticity, causing your skin to lose structure and volume and resulting in sagging cheeks and deepened laugh lines. Genes play a role as well. If your mom has deep nasolabial folds and wrinkles, then chances are good you’ll get them, too.
The Magic of Vycross® Technology
Juvéderm Vollure XC isn’t just any hyaluronic acid filler—the formula uses Allergen’s proprietary Vycross® technology, which combines different weights of hyaluronic acid at the molecular level. While most hyaluronic fillers are created with 100% high molecular weight, Juvéderm formulas with Vycross® technology use 90% low molecular weight and 10% high molecular weight. This makes for a smoother formula that’s both easier to inject and easier to integrate into your skin. The combination of molecular weights results in natural looking youthful contours that last up to 18 months! In other words, Juvéderm Vollure XC is the gift that keeps on giving.
