Are you thinking of blurring your bitterness folds commonly called "puppet folds" located on either side of the mouth?
The bitterness folds are wrinkles that start from the corner of the mouth and descend to the chin, the aggravation of which is gradual and inevitable. These are the wrinkles that age the face the most and that will create a moody look.
The contraction of the skin muscles of the face, those which are used during facial expressions, participates in the appearance and widening of this expression wrinkle, but it is the sagging skin which is mainly responsible:
- Fat and skin melting over time (postmenopausal hormonal deficiency, oxidative stress, sun exposure, tobacco.)
- hyperactivity of the muscle next to the area, namely the oral angle depressor muscle (DAO)
- Bone melting with receding of the mandibular bone relief.
The daily approach
The fight against wrinkles is not just psychological. It also takes place on the plate. A little varied or unbalanced diet accelerates the loss of elasticity of the skin. Certain foods are known to slow the appearance of wrinkles.
The medical approach

The surgical approach
the cervico-facial lifting helps to put back in tension the muscles and the skin of this region.
