Fillers for Smile Lines

Injectable fillers such as Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm can be used to treat smile lines (nasolabial folds), the "parenthesis" shaped lines that reach from the side of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. Dr. Kapadia prefers using Juvederm Ultra Plus in the nasolabial fold area.
