Have you started to feel self-conscious about those wrinkles around your mouth? Wrinkles around the mouth are very common, especially among women. The skin becomes susceptible to wrinkles over time due to the breakdown of collagen, and as well as other factors. But how can you smooth wrinkles around your mouth.
Wrinkles around the mouth

How can I smooth wrinkles around my mouth
Dermal fillers can be used to smooth wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane is one of the most effective options, because it is specially formulated to treat moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane is comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps the skin retain moisture (learn more).
How Restylane works
When Restylane is injected into the skin, the HA molecules attract and bind water, and this adds volume to the skin, and fills in wrinkles and creases.
How long do the results last?
When used to smooth wrinkles around the mouth, the results of Restylane last approximately 12-18 months.
