You may have deep marionette lines around your mouth, and these could be managed organically for more permanent results. Facial gymnastics exercises, combined with other techniques, can drastically reduce or completely eliminate smile wrinkles. We explore some treatments here.
You need to perform 3 facial yoga exercises to treat expression lines which are also known as nasal folds. The logic here is that if one firms the skin on the cheeks, the nasolabial folds will become less pronounced in a short space of time. This is the key. All the facial gymnastics that we provide here must be practiced for at least 1 minute daily to see results; the more you practice them, the faster you and others will detect the results
Take your index finger and place it on the bones at the base of your eye sockets, just below and in line with your pupils. Make small, firm circles inward. This facial training is called Cheng Qi.
Now, with the same fingertips, place them on the cleft of your cheeks (just below the apex of your cheekbone), still vertical to your eye pupils and horizontal to the bulge of your nostrils. Manipulate this acupressure point until you experience a small tingling sensation in the middle of your face. The manipulation of this nodal point is known as Sibai.
These two facial exercises will tighten the central facial muscles and improve the contour of the skin above this part, which prepares us for the next facial firming exercise that really works the expression lines.
Rest your index fingers in the creases of the smile, just above the upper lip to the middle of the nostrils, and make small circles outwards.
The 3 facial exercises outlined above are very powerful in the fight to cure or treat the real problem of laugh lines. Try to use some moisturizer while doing these yoga facial toning exercises as it will be absorbed by the skin and help to seep into the tissue below. Always massage from the top down when it comes to yoga facial exercises, as this opens up the blood vessels and gravity takes over.
Exercises for cheek wrinkles and laughter will open the blood flow to the middle of the face; the tingling will feel good, indicating that it is working. It’s a natural mini facelift done with acupressure!
Facial exercises are also splendid for getting rid of forehead lines, firming turkey neck, lifting jowls, treating eye wrinkles, and contouring loose, sagging skin on the face and neck. Facial aerobics are essentially the means to a non-surgical face lift!
So what is also a reliable remedy for smile wrinkles around the mouth?
1. If your marionette lines are shallow, you can try a moisturizer with glycolic acid in lotion or cream form. This is basically a synthetic form of the acids found in fruits. It will help get rid of the shallower lines. Moisturizers can also be helpful in loosening old skin cells on the surface and replacing them with fresher, younger cells from below. This method is effective in reducing fine wrinkles and expression lines.
2. Collagen injections have been found to work in the treatment of nasal lines, because it occurs naturally in the second layer of the skin. It gives your skin a framework for the enhanced growth of blood vessels and cells. As you age, free radicals and constant squinting and smiling will cause collagen to deteriorate. Cosmetic surgeons can use bovine collagen to counteract this effect. In contemporary collagen injection techniques, the doctor can obtain some of your own collagen to re-inject it into the area where your lines are most severe. This will at least include collagen which should work for you as an individual. You may experience some redness and swelling, but these will subside within a couple of hours after the process is complete. Collagen injections can eliminate or minimize fine lines for 2-3 months. But it’s not a long-lasting answer like non-invasive facial gymnastics exercises.
3. You should wear sunscreen every time you go out to stop any further exposure to the sun. It will be effective in stopping new expression lines and delaying the worsening of older ones. If you have sensitive skin, don’t use sunscreens with oxybenzone or PABA, which can irritate your skin. As an alternative, use a sunscreen with titanium dioxide. If you want to swim, put on waterproof sunscreen and reapply it every hour.
Hopefully, these tips will provide you with several of the best ways to remove or scrub away laughter folds. Use them to obtain excellent results and a renewed face, less wrinkled, with fewer wrinkles in the mouth and lips.
