Q:

I am a 55 year old female and have deep lines all around my mouth. What is the best procedure to get rid of these?

A:

Lines around the mouth at 55 years of age are quite common. With today's technologies, we have a number of different venues which could work alone or in combination. There is no good surgical treatment for this. Non-surgical options include: Botox, in small amounts to relax the muscles, lasers to smoothen the skin and/or build collagen, and injectable fillers to "fill" the lines which is probably the most popular method at this time.

A:

Treatment of Deep Perioral Lines – The optimal treatment is modality and one cannot really work well alone. One can use the “Lift & Fill and Resurface” technique. You can Lift the deep layers in a multiple layer facelift. You can Fill the commissures area deeply with fat. You can Resurface the deep wrinkles with a laser which will give a moderate to good improvement, but will not remove these significant deep wrinkles around the mouth, especially in the perioral area.
