Aging is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, most of us see aging as a symbol of a long and happy life. However, as our bodies change over time, some of our features may begin to look different and affect our self-esteem. Here are three common signs of aging, and some suggestions on how to combat them if they are affecting your self-esteem.

Smile Lines

Smile lines, or nasolabial folds, are the folds of skin that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth. When you look in the mirror and smile, you might notice that these folds are pushed up into your cheeks. However, when you relax your smile, you may notice these folds leave noticeable lines or wrinkles that disrupt your facial symmetry. As we age, these lines are likely to become deeper or longer, drawing more attention ot themselves than desired. If your smile lines are bothering you, New England Laser Lipo is happy to offer you a variety of solutions to combat this issue. We are happy to offer Belotero Balance®, a hyaluronic acid filler that assists in restoring volume to the face, smoothing away wrinkles and filling in deep facial folds.

Frown Lines

Different from smile lines, frown lines are the wrinkles that form between our eyebrows over time. Sometimes these lines extend all the way up the forehead. This is usually due to extended periods of concentration or stress. Frown lines can also be caused by frequent exposure to sunlight, causing you to squint or furrow your brow. To treat frown lines, Dr. Willis recommends Botox Cosmetic. Botox Cosmetic is a solution used to treat fine lines on the forehead, around the eyes, on the nose, and between the eyebrows. These injections block the nerves and weaken the muscles that cause deep wrinkles and frown lines on the face, helping you appear more relaxed and youthful.

Wrinkles & Fine Lines

As we age, assorted wrinkles and fine lines begin to show up on our faces. Our skin does not bounce back as quickly as it used to, and any repeated muscle movements quickly leave behind a permanent line on our face. Sunscreen and a healthy diet can only go so far. If you notice wrinkles and fine lines are dragging down your facial features, Dr. Willis can provide Juvéderm, a solution that restores hyaluronic acid in the skin, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Radiesse is another long-lasting solution to reducing this common aging sign.
