The Best Treatments to Smooth Out Smile Lines

Some experts say that it takes more muscles to smile than to frown. While the exact number of muscles involved in either task remains up for debate, one thing remains true: smile lines can happen to you.

Contrary to popular belief, smile lines (also known as laugh lines) can occur even in your 20s and 30s. Although they are primarily caused by aging, these pesky lines can stem from sun exposure and smoking as well. While changing your lifestyle can help prevent them from occurring, it won’t do very much in minimizing their appearance.

Luckily, the physicians at New York Cosmetic, Skin and Laser Surgery Center, which has offices in both New York City and Long Island, have several non-surgical approaches to help you get rid of smile lines for good. Lead by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, their expert team is adept at using cutting edge technology to help clients look better and younger, while maintaining a natural appearance. They have helped hundreds of patients residing in NYC and Long Island get rid of their smile lines for good.

Here are some of the newest non-surgical procedures for smile lines:


As you may know, Botox is a tried and tested solution to reduce wrinkles and smile lines and Dr. Rokhsar is definitely the point person for anything Botox. As a certified trainer and speaker for Allergan, the makers of Botox, Dr. Rokhsar is an expert when it comes to improving clients’ appearance safely and with natural looking results.


Xeomin is a new addition to Dr. Rokhsar’s anti-aging arsenal. It is a neuromodulator that blocks the signal from the brain to the muscle, allowing the muscle to relax. This action not only diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles but prevents them from occurring in the first place. Its capability as a preventive measure for lines and wrinkles makes Xeomin particularly popular with younger clients.


Dysport, just like Xeomin, blocks the transmission of nerve signals. By relaxing the muscles, the area is spared from developing lines and wrinkles resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. What makes it different is that Dysport does not affect sensation in the area. Clients can see results in as little as 24 hours and results are thought to last longer than Botox.

Restylane Defyne

Restylane Defyne is the newest FDA-approved dermal filler made of biocompatible hyaluronic acid. It is designed to tackle moderate to deep set wrinkles and laugh lines. Defyne replenishes lost volume in key areas for up to 12 months. In the hands of an expert like Dr. Rokhsar, Defyne can make a client’s skin look smooth and supple in minutes.
