Beyond Smile Lines: Exploring JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® for Lip Lines and Wrinkles

Featured Image

Over time, almost everyone begins to develop static lines and wrinkles on the face that can add years to their appearance in what seems like overnight. These lines, known as static lines, are often made worse by the natural loss of volume and progression of skin laxity that accompany aging. For many people, lines around the mouth and nose are among the earliest and most prominent static lines to appear on the face, leading more men and women each year to explore their options for smoothing out facial lines and restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance.

At Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe and our team of aesthetic specialists offer a complete range of cosmetic injectables, including dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, to address a diverse array of facial lines and wrinkles. For stubborn lines around the nose and mouth, JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® fillers offer an excellent opportunity to achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results without the need for invasive surgery. Keep reading to discover the exciting benefits of VOLLURE fillers for smile lines and more.

What causes smile lines?

Sometimes referred to as parentheses lines — a nod to their resemblance to the curved, vertical lines of parentheses — nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth are more commonly known as "smile lines" or "laugh lines." These static folds typically begin to become more pronounced in a person's 40s but may start to appear earlier in some cases. Volume loss and skin laxity are some of the natural causes of nasolabial folds, while sun exposure, smoking, diet, and other lifestyle variables can contribute to the progression of smile lines. To reduce the appearance of lines around the nose and mouth — including nasolabial folds — many men and women choose injectable dermal fillers for their instant results, long-lasting effects, and convenience.

Which filler do I need for smile lines?

One of the most popular and effective dermal fillers for lines around the mouth is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE. The unique formula of hyaluronic acid (HA)-based VOLLURE fillers lends itself well to making natural-looking enhancements to the delicate areas around the nose and mouth. Some of the specific types of lines and wrinkles that may be best treated with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE fillers include:

  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines, laugh lines)
  • Marionette lines (lines around the corners of the mouth)

Does VOLLURE work for lip lines?

Lines around the mouth, like marionette lines extending from the corners of the mouth, are extremely suitable for treatment with VOLLURE injections. Vertical lines extending from the lips — often called "lipstick lines" — may be more appropriately and effectively treated with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC. In many cases, a combination of JUVÉDERM products presents an ideal opportunity for addressing multiple types of facial lines and wrinkles simultaneously and achieving the most complete and natural-looking transformation possible. During your initial consultation for cosmetic injectables in Dallas, TX, one of our aesthetic injectors will evaluate your specific concerns and formulate a customized treatment plan that can best help you achieve your goals.
