I Have Wrinkles Around my Mouth. Can Laser Skin Tightening Improve Them?
As we age, we lose volume in our lips. Repeated contractions of the mouth from actions like speaking, kissing, and drinking through a straw can eventually lead to wrinkles on the lips and around the mouth, as well as thinner lips. These can be made worse by sun exposure and smoking.
At Devine Aesthetic Solutions, Dr. Jeanine Thomas uses noninvasive laser technology to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Thomas serves patients near Arlington, Dallas/Fort Worth, Midlothian, and Euless, TX.
Keep reading to learn more about this nonsurgical laser skin tightening treatment and how it can help improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and help you regain a more youthful appearance.
How does laser skin tightening reduce lines and wrinkles?
As we age, our bodies no longer produce collagen and elastin at the same rate. Since these are the building blocks of plump, supple skin, reducing these elements leaves skin thin, saggy, and prone to wrinkles. At Devine Aesthetic Solutions, Dr. Thomas performs laser skin tightening using the Harmony XL PRO. This laser technology helps your body stimulate collagen and elastin at a faster rate.
During treatment, the laser is passed over the skin and targets deep layers of the dermis to stimulate tissue regeneration. Over the following weeks and months, your body will respond to this treatment, and your skin will begin to look tighter, smoother, and more youthful.
Who should get laser skin tightening for wrinkles around the mouth?
Women tend to get more lines around their mouths (since men's facial hair means they have more sebaceous glands around the mouth). However, anyone can get laser skin resurfacing treatment with the Harmony XL PRO.
The best candidates for laser skin tightening are generally in good health and do not want to (or cannot) undergo more invasive treatments, such as cosmetic surgery. Laser treatments are most appropriate for those who want to correct mild to moderate skin sagging around the mouth (or elsewhere on the face).
Maintaining a healthy weight is crucial to get the full benefits of laser skin tightening since significant weight gain and loss can lead to excess sagging.
The Harmony XL PRO can be used to reduce the appearance of lines all over the body, and most patients need 2 – 4 laser skin tightening treatments for optimal results. After discussing your aesthetic goals with Dr. Thomas, she can give you personalized advice on if the treatment is suitable, and how many laser skin treatments you may need to see optimal results.
