Wrinkles in the mid face are often a reflection of what is happening inside our mouth. When our teeth are misaligned, worn or missing, they are unable to support our facial muscles in a desirable way. This loss of support can lead to collapse of the facial tissues resulting in wrinkles. After the treatment of the underlying cause, imperfections may still exist in the surface of our skin. In cases like this, the use of dermal fillers (TEOSYAL) and muscle relaxants (Dysport) have proven useful as supportive treatments.
