When we age, the area around the mouth starts to crease and and form laughter lines. This stands to reason when you think of all the times you’ve smiled, laughed, kissed, smoked (perhaps) and talked.
One of my favourite authors of all time, Mark Twain, said: “wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.” Whilst I agree with him whole-heartedly, I do feel that we should be able to make little tweaks and corrections as we go along, in order to keep us looking as good as we feel.
Age is not something that should be shunned or shied away from; it is a fact of life, and we are all inevitably going to wear the signs at some point. But equally, if ageing starts to impact your confidence and self-esteem, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t take action to prevent or delay these tell-tale signs.
Botulinum Toxin for laughter lines
One of the most popular anti-wrinkle treatments in the world is botulinum toxin, which temporarily relaxes the muscles to help reduce the appearance of those mischievous laughter lines. Its use is extremely prevalent in the US, with over 4 million patients undergoing treatment every year.
Whilst the name itself may seem daunting – the idea of putting any foreign product into the body is always going to be a little scary – it is in fact no more dangerous than taking a paracetamol. The other benefit to having this treatment, is that it is temporary; if you are wanting to make a slight or subtle change, but aren’t ready to undergo surgery, it is ideal.
