Dermal fillers such as Restylane, for example, are excellent non-surgical options capable of boosting facial contour. Micro-needling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is another option capable of improving the skin’s texture and visual aesthetic. Both of these have different purposes. Dermal fillers will focus on facial contour and “plump up” skin wrinkles for smoother lines while microneedling is designed to encourage collagen production so that the skin rejuvenates itself.
To help you make an informed decision, consider the following. For lines or wrinkles (parenthesis lines) across the mouth and nose, dermal fillers are excellent and they are also effective in treating lines stretching from the corner of the mouth to the jawline, these lines often being called marionette lines. Especially good for acne scarring, big pores, cutting down on pigmentation, and bad skin tone, microneedling may be a better option in this case.
