What Are Accordion Lines?
Have you noticed those little lines on your lower cheek when you look in the mirror?
They are called Accordion Lines.
They are static wrinkles that are present on the outer sides of your mouth even when you’re not smiling.
As we age, facial changes occur. And unfortunately, wrinkles appear over time. These “not so charming” dimples on this part of the face are the result of repeated muscle movements that form our facial expressions, especially when we smile.
Furthermore, when there is a decrease in naturally occurring sugars and fat in the same area, it results to a loss of volume, making the lines more visible.
Gravity, sun damage and other environmental and genetic factors can also play a part.
Restoring the naturally occurring sugars that help create volume under the skin can diminish the appearance of these pesky accordion lines.
