The mouth – where we showcase our joy, grief and even sensuality – is not immune to the signs of ageing…
Ageing is synonymous with volume loss (deflation), sagging (ptosis or descent) and wrinkling. Unfortunately, our mouths and lips can also show signs of ageing. Some of this ageing is due to the natural ageing process, facial animation and genetics whilst in some individuals, this can be accelerated by environmental factors such as sun exposure and smoking. With age, the upper lip lengthens, the lower lip loses volume, the tissue around the corners of our mouth deflate, the corners of our mouth turn down, lines and wrinkles form around our mouth, our chin pad sags (chin ptosis) and the nasolabial folds on each side of our mouth become more prominent.
How you can reclaim a youthful mouth…
The lines around the mouth (perioral rhytids) can be addressed with laser resurfacing such as Sciton Profractional laser or Fraxel laser. Alternatively, the lines can also be reduced using dermal fillers to soften those lines. If there are many strong dynamic lines around the mouth on animation, a small amount of wrinkle relaxants can also help improve the appearance of lines. Dermabrasion or chemical peels can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A combination of treatments can effectively improve the quality of the skin and soft tissues around the mouth.
The long upper lip can also be addressed with a lip lift which is a surgical manoeuvre to lift the lip and reshape it. The deep nasolabial crease and prominent nasolabial folds may require a midface lift or fillers.
