Nasolabial folds are pesky lines that look like parentheses around your mouth. Our nonsurgical smile lines treatment in Portland and Vancouver provides instant results, helping you look younger and more refreshed.
Dermal fillers add volume to plump the wrinkle smooth in just minutes. FDA approved in 2002, Restylane is a staple in plastic surgeon’s offices around the world. Restylane is made with hyaluronic acid, similar to the kind that is found in your skin. It fills wrinkles instantly upon injection.
There are many different types of Restylane. For deep nasolabial folds, a denser formulation provides more strength to fill the wrinkle. For moderate nasolabial folds, a softer gel texture is suitable. At The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery, we select the best filler for smile lines to achieve optimal correction. We skillfully inject just the right amount of filler to eliminate smile lines while upholding your natural beauty.
In 2003, the FDA approved Juvéderm for nasolabial folds. Now, physicians have even more formulations to choose from. Like Restylane, Juvederm also contains hyaluronic acid gel.
There are several types of Juvederm we can use to achieve your desired amount of correction. Each type has a unique consistency and flexible strength. We match you with the best Juvederm for smile lines based on your individual wrinkle depth. Our patients love how long Juvéderm lasts. You can enjoy one to two years of wrinkle-free skin, with no maintenance.
Smile line fillers work quickly, so you will leave your appointment looking instantly more youthful. The results of your procedure will last up to one year or longer. This may vary based on the smile line filler that is selected for you.
Led by top Portland plastic surgeon, Dr. Workman’s staff strives to provide the elite level of care and attention you deserve. At your consultation, our highly trained nurse injectors will discuss your facial aging concerns and answer any questions you might have. After reviewing your medical history, a treatment plan is created just for you.
Our non-surgical wrinkle treatments take just minutes to perform. Our injector will numb your skin with an anesthetic for comfort. The gel is injected into your skin to fill your smile lines. The procedure itself is minimally painful. Following the injection, we may gently massage the treated areas. There is no downtime, so you can go back to work and social obligations immediately.
Our Vancouver smile line treatment has no downtime. Our patients can easily fix smile lines in one convenient visit to our Vancouver, Washington location. Minor side effects such as tenderness, redness, or discomfort may occur shortly after injection, but they should fade within a few hours.
We will provide specific aftercare instructions. You may be advised to limit physical activities and avoid rubbing the treatment site. It is in your best interest to avoid alcohol for one day after treatment. If you have any questions or concerns during recovery, please call our office.
Dermal fillers have a low risk of side effects. Serious complications are rare. We carry two product lines that are FDA approved for nasolabial folds: Juvéderm and Restylane. Both earned FDA approval in the early 2000s. Millions of smile line treatments have been performed worldwide over the years.
Because these fillers are composed of non-toxic hyaluronic acid that mimics the kind found in your skin, there is almost no risk of allergy. Our experienced care provider is trained in proper injection techniques to maximize the safety of your treatment. All minimally invasive procedures come with a small degree of risk, however. You will be advised of risks prior to your procedure.
Dermal fillers for smile lines are an inexpensive treatment compared to surgery. At The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery, the cost of smile line fillers in Vancouver is made even more affordable with special financing.
