Laugh lines correction

Laugh lines come in two varieties: nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Laugh lines or grin lines are formed by one or more wrinkles and fine lines that we may notice even when we are not smiling. When we grin, we naturally develop laugh lines, which are known as dynamic lines. That is, they only occur when we produce facial emotions like smiling. These lines might be aggravating when they become sagging and visible all the time; even when we keep a straight expression (static). We used Radiesse dermal filler in this case.

Collagen, a skin-plumping protein that naturally declines with age, is either replaced to stimulated by fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found in the majority of laugh line fillers. This transparent material is created naturally by the skin and aids firmness and hydration. However, these fillers replenish the collagen, with little or no effect on making it. Hyaluronic acid fillers that we use for laugh lines correction include Belotero, Croma, Juvéderm, and Restylane. These HA fillers have been approved for the treatment of nasolabial creases and laugh lines.
Dr. Alhallak, Ph.D. in Pharmacy, may recommend Radiesse, another type of filler that contains calcium hydroxyapatite. 

Dr. Alhallak may inject it directly into the prominent spots of your nasolabial folds, jawline, or cheek malar bone. These fillers will eventually disappear from your body. The injectables last anywhere from 6 to 18 months in total.

Laugh line filler Case # 1200

Dr. Alhallak recommended Radiesse for laugh lines correction after the consultation. The patient had been receiving Juvederm for over 5 years and was looking for a long-term solution to avoid a yearly trip to the Edmonton centre.

Can Radiesse correct nasolabial folds and laugh lines?

Practitioners at Albany Cosmetic and Laser center in Edmonton use Radiesse to correct wrinkles and folds on the face and hands. Radiesse is made with calcium-based microspheres to stimulate the body’s collagen for long-lasting resultsRadiesse can be used in the same places as Juvederm: the cheeks, laugh lines around the mouth. Moreover, Radiesse can also be injected in the chin wrinkles, the pre-jowl fold, and the backs of the hands.

Radiesse has numerous advantages, making it an effective treatment for reversing the signs of facial aging. Its natural components eliminate the need for allergy testing because there is virtually little danger of an adverse reaction. Moreover, Radiesse contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the injection procedure. However, the stimulation of spontaneous collagen formation may be the most exciting advantage of Radiesse contains calcium-based microspheres and gel that deliver immediate and long-lasting laugh lines correction results.


Dr. Alhallak (a Pharmacist with a PhD from the University of Alberta) employs a variety of strategies to get the greatest outcomes. Depending on the situation, it may comprise laser coagulation, filler injection (Juvederm or Restylane), and threads. In certain instances, we also inject botox into the DAO and Levator muscles.
