Smile Lines Filler or PDO Threads for Smile Lines Treatment

Smile lines, also known as accordion lines or laugh lines, form due to the movement of the mouth when smiling, causing the skin to wrinkle out from the mouth. Traditionally, smile lines filler was considered the first-line treatment; however, with the introduction of PDO threads, these rapidly overtake smile line fillers as the treatment of choice.  Other non-surgical treatments, such as skin tightening, may be added to the smile line fillers treatment. Excessive skin laxity generally warrants  PDO threads, skin tightening or even a facelift to achieve the best results. Our Doctors provide a free assessment at the outset and will assist in advising the best treatment approach.

What are Smile Lines?

Laugh lines develop over time due to facial changes caused by repeated expression, skin laxity, and facial volume loss. While driven by natural ageing, skin laxity is exacerbated by skin-stressing factors such as sun exposure, smoking, pollution, and skin inflammation. These factors accelerate the breakdown of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. And when combined with fat loss, there is a bunching of excess skin in the mid and lower face when you smile.

Laugh Line Treatment Options

The approach to treating laugh lines is primarily determined by the severity of the lines. When new wrinkles appear across the cheek, superficial smile line fillers are an excellent treatment option. However, once the lines become deeper or fixed, you may need PDO threads, skin tightening or a resurfacing procedure.

Smile Lines Filler Treatment

Dermal fillers work by adding volume to deeper layers of skin, reducing the appearance of lines on the cheeks when you smile—several factors influence product selection. Smile lines filler is typically injected perpendicular to and beneath the lines. These superficial injections can effectively reduce the wrinkling effect of accordion lines.

PDO Threads for Smile Lines Treatment

PDO threads are the newest kid on the block for treating laugh lines and achieving perfect skin tightening results. PDO threads are tiny (3-5cm long threads) inserted into your skin’s subcutaneous layer. 60-100 threads may be required. PDO threads, also known as Polydioxanone threads, work by stimulating the production of new collagen in your skin. They primarily tighten the skin but also have a skin lifting effect.

Skin Tightening and Smile Lines Treatment

If your laugh lines are more advanced, skin tightening may be more appropriate.   Skin tightening can be accomplished through laser resurfacing.  Softening the appearance of smile lines with either fractionated Erbium or CO2 laser can be used. Radiofrequency, such as Infini or Secret RF, is an alternative for skin tightening.
