There is no greater medicine out there than being able to stop and laugh. Laughing will make you feel great thanks to all the positive chemicals that it releases. It will also ensure that you can get rid of some of the tension that you might be feeling.

Whilst there are plenty of great things laughing, one thing that might not be quite so good is the fact that as we age it can leave you with some rather obvious laughter lines. These lines form around the eyes and the mouth and are known to be one of the biggest giveaways when it comes to ageing skin.

What Causes Laughter Lines?

Aptly named, laughter lines are there because of the way that the face naturally creases whenever we laugh or smile. This is why they are always found in the same spot on everyone’s face. Whilst they are there because we smile, the true reason that they actually form is because as we age, we see a reduction in the collagen and elastin in the skin. It is these proteins that cause our skin to lose firmness and elasticity and lead it to appear sagging and loose.

It also means that those wrinkles and lines can form much easier; as the skin won’t be able to put up too much resistance.

How can Laughter Lines be Treated?

The next thing that you want to know is whether there is actually anything that can be done to prevent (or treat) laughter lines. The good news is that there are a variety of treatments out there that are designed to help you to have the fresh and youthful skin that you crave and the experts at Koha Clinic in Berkhamsted can offer you a personalised approach to age management.

Here are a few of the options available:

Skin Peels – A skin peel will often contain a number of active fruit acids; these will then cause the top layers of the skin to peel away and the skin that is left behind is going to be fresh and smooth. You can choose from a variety of strengths of peel depending on your need. Koha offers Dermaquest Skin Peels ( with a range of protocols available.

Anti Wrinkle Injections – Another popular treatment to prevent laughter lines is to use anti-ageing injectables. These work by ensuring that all the muscles in the face are as relaxed as possible, which helps when you are completing repetitive muscle movements. Koha’s aesthetic doctor will be able to advise and prescribe the most suitable treatments for your needs.

Fillers – Another injectable that can help with laughter lines is are dermal fillers. These are injected under the skin with a fine needle, which will help to fill out lines and grooves on the face. These injectables contain hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance that you should find in your skin. It is also the substance that is going to help your body to produce any lost collagen, helping your skin to be as elastic as possible.
