The deep wrinkles or lines on both sides of the mouth that extend from the very edge of the nose right to the mouth’s outer corners are called nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds are commonly called smile lines or laugh lines. Nasolabial folds are made up of dense bundles of fibrous tissue and muscles. As the skin loses its volume and becomes saggy and thin with age, these lines become more prominent.

What Causes Smile Lines?

Smile lines, or Nasolabial folds, are among the early signs of aging, but there are a number of other factors that may contribute to their formation. These other factors include:

  • Exposure to the sun which damages the skin and causes wrinkles and a change in skin texture
  • Weak and thin skin caused by the loss of collagen that comes with age
  • Saggy cheeks and other parts of the face due to loss of fat
  • Smoking, which is a habit that breaks down the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin
  • Significant weight loss that leads to looser, saggy

How to Effectively Treat Smile Lines

Smile lines are an unfortunate part of getting older, but there are ways that you can fade them out and in some cases, get rid of them entirely.

Your options include skin resurfacing treatments, surgical procedures, laser resurfacing treatments, and even dermal fillers. Given all of the treatment options available, one of the most popular solutions is an injectable filler known as Restylane Refyne.

Refyne To Restore A Natural Youthful Look

Restylane Refyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn technology. It provides smooth, flexible, long-lasting and natural-looking results. Restylane Refyne is specifically used to correct nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It helps restore a youthful look to the face while also helping you retain your natural expressions.

Restylane Refyne is injected into the facial skin through a fine-gauge needle. The filler is imbued with a local anesthetic known as lidocaine to ensure optimal comfort during the procedure.

Benefits of Refyne

There are a number of great benefits that come with using Restylane Refyne to improving your facial features. Refyne creates a natural fullness and provides significant volume without any hardness and lumps in the treated area.

The filler is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical in the human body that helps give your skin a more youthful and vibrant look. Since it is a natural substance, it is easily dissolvable in your body without the risk of any adverse effects.

Due to its ability to improve collagen production, Refyne provides results that last long and continue to improve over the course of time. This non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment does not require downtime and patients can return to their normal daily activities in no time.

Restylane Refyne should not be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women, people with skin problems, history of scarring and by those consuming blood thinners. Refyne helps get rid of marionette lines and nasolabial folds and makes the skin look naturally youthful.
