The labiomental crease is actually that will horizontal indentation or groove below your lower lip. For some This specific is actually quite deep, for others This specific is actually barely noticeable at all. While there are anatomic reasons as to why This specific is actually there (This specific represents the junction between the horizontal orbicularis muscle along with the vertical mentalis muscle), most people only notice This specific if they think This specific is actually too deep or prominent. A deeper labiomental crease may may an undesirable deep indentation or may make the chin look more prominent than This specific truly is actually. For some, This specific merely makes them look older.
Softening of the deep labiomental crease can be easily done with any of the commercially-available injectable fillers. The more visous along with longer lasting injectable fillers work best in This specific area. Treatment volumes are less than the nasolabial fold area, for example, usually about 0.5ccs or half a syringe worth. Injectable fillers such as Perlane, Radiesse, or Sculptra produce Great long-term however not permanent results.
The deep labiomental crease cam also be treated with additional types of materials, through natural to synthetic. These include off-the-shelf dermis (e.g., Alloderm or NeoForm), dermal-fat grafts (strip fat grafts), fat injections, along with synthetic implants. They all produce a lessening of the crease along with some are more effective than others at This specific. I do not find dermal-fat grafts or fat injections as effective as I might have hoped. This specific is actually not possible to thread in as large a dermal-fat graft as is actually needed through very smaller incisions at the side of the creases. Fat injections don’t seem to last very long in This specific area. Processed dermis or tubed synthetic implants (e.g., Advanta) work the best for long-term results. Whatever material is actually used, This specific must be stiff enough to provide a Great ‘push’ of the deep crease outward to seek visible results.
Because of the location of the labiomental crease, there is actually no bone-based approaches that will will work. In fact, chin augmentations in some patients having a deep labiomental crease will worsen its appearance by actually producing This specific ‘deeper’ as the chin tissues come forward.
Treatment of the labiomental fold is actually best with injectable fillers for a temporary effect or a synthetic implant for a more permanent solution.
