If you feel unhappy with your smile lines, you are not alone. While smile lines are natural, you may want to decrease their appearance to achieve a more youthful glow.

Smile lines are wrinkles that occur around the sides of your mouth from smiling over time. They can begin to appear from your early twenties, deepening as you age. They can be caused by a lack of hydration or collagen in your skin, alcohol, smoking, and sun exposure. They can also be inherited genetically – if deep smile lines run in the family, you are more likely to have them too.

If you feel unhappy with your smile lines, there are a few things you can do:

Injectable Fillers

Fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a skin ‘wonder’ ingredient. The filler is injected into your face into the smile lines to give you a smoother, softer appearance. Fillers can last for months, but you may have to revisit every few months for top-ups. If you are unhappy with the fillers, you can have them dissolved.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

A popular treatment for many reasons, anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They can work perfectly to give you a subtle, youthful appearance. It can cause a bit of irritation and redness around the injected areas, and you will need to follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your practitioner. These anti-wrinkle injections take a few days for the results to show, and it lasts for up to three months.

Laser Therapy

If you want something that doesn’t involve injections, laser treatment is an exciting option. It helps to reduce smile lines and wrinkles, but it does have a long recovery time of 1-3 weeks. You may also experience a bit of redness and soreness around the treated areas, and the results last for three months.


Microneedling (or collagen induction) directly addresses a lack of collagen, causing your smile lines. It can give you a plumper, more youthful appearance. The treatment takes place over multiple sessions, which can take up to 9 months to finish.
