Accordion line treatment

Accordion Line Treatment

Have you noticed those small crooked vertical lines on your lower cheek when you smile while looking in the mirror? Those lines are called accordion or smile lines, and they are static wrinkles that form on the outside of your mouth even when you’re not smiling.

Constant smiling may cause the skin around the mouth to become slack, leaving visible lines even when your face relaxes after a smile. With age, facial changes take place and unfortunately wrinkles gradually start to appear. The loss of elasticity and facial fat is part of the ageing process which contributes to the formation of accordion lines.

Treating accordion lines

Mira Clinic is located in Perth where we are devoted to offering dermal filler injections to treat accordion lines. This treatment allows our patients to look and feel the way they have always wanted with natural-looking results.

The benefits of using fillers:

  • No bandages
  • No recovery time
  • Fast, safe and effective
  • No pain
  • Fillers increase volume and smooth out the accordion lines

What You Can Expect

Dermal fillers are injected around the smile lines to raise and fill in skin volume. The injected filler makes the laugh lines look smoother and the surrounding skin plumper.

At Mira Clinic we use injectable fillers which leave our patients with natural looking long-term results with the option of reversing the treatment if required.

Treatments that smooth smile lines generally take half an hour. An anaesthetic cream is placed on the desired area to numb the skin. Small volumes of dermal fillers will then be injected along the laugh lines.

When the session is finished, the patient can return to their daily activities because of the non-invasive nature and straightforwardness of the procedure.

Gradually the body will absorb the injected filler which makes the treated area go back to its pre-treatment state. Many of our patients decide to have dermal filler treatment on a regular basis to maintain their rejuvenated appearance.

Are you a candidate for accordion line treatment?t

A good candidate for accordion line treatment is someone that is in good health and concerned about the appearance of their smile lines.

How long do the results last?

Results vary from patient to patient, it all depends on how fast the individual’s body can absorb the filler.

What are the risks involved with accordion lines treatment?

Like most procedures, accordion line treatment may be associated with some complications such as bruising, redness, swelling, or an allergic reaction to the filler. Now and then, lumps can form underneath the skin as the filler is distributed in certain areas of the body. If these lumps form, they can be managed by lightly massaging the skin.
