Wrinkle lines on the upper lips are also known as smoker’s lines. While smoking does not always cause these wrinkles, it can increase the likelihood of getting them.
Frequent mouth movements such as drinking, talking, frowning, and other lip movements can also cause these wrinkles. These are signs of aging that can cause a lot of people to be self-conscious.
There is good news about these smoker’s lines, you can get rid of them! Injectables and laser treatments can get rid of those ugly superficial or deep wrinkles.
A dermal filler may be used in the lips to treat the smoker’s lines. Many of these treatments contain hyaluronic acid; this plumps up the area around the lips and helps them to appear fuller than before.
Botox is also commonly used for smoker’s lines as well. Botox helps relax the muscle around the mouth and the appearance of these lines are greatly reduced.
Collagen producing options such as IPL facial treatments can be used. However, they are not going to give you the best results and will still need to be combined with other procedures to help you to have reduction in the appearance of the smoker’s lines.
