Lip Lines (Perioral Lines/Smoker's Lines)

Lip lines (also known as perioral lines or smoker's lines) are wrinkles or fine lines that form around the mouth. They are usually most visible when you smile, laugh, or make other facial expressions. Lip lines are a very common form of wrinkles and can affect people of all ages. Lip lines, or creases on or around the mouth, can be caused by sun exposure, smoking, genetics, and repeated facial expressions. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments available to help reduce the appearance of lip lines and make them less noticeable.

HOW DR SKNN CAN TREAT Lip Lines (Perioral Lines/Smoker's Lines)

At Dr Sknn Wilmslow Cheshire, we offer several effective treatments for reducing the appearance of Lip Lines (Perioral Lines/Smoker's Lines). 

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular treatments for reducing the appearance of lip lines. The injections are made up of a neurotoxin which blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing them to relax and resulting in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. The injections are quick, safe and effective, and results can last for up to 4 months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of lip lines and wrinkles, without the need for surgery. The dermal fillers used are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that's found in the body. When placed into the skin, hyaluronic acid helps to fill in lines and wrinkles, restoring volume and a smoother, more youthful appearance.

CO2 Fractional Ablative Laser

CO2 fractional ablative laser is a type of laser treatment which uses short bursts of light energy to heat the deeper layers of skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment results can be long lasting and impressive.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Why Do Lip Lines Form?

Lip lines form for a variety of reasons. The most common cause is sun damage, as the skin around the mouth is particularly prone to sun damage due to its thinness and lack of oil glands. Other causes of lip lines include repetitive facial movements, smoking, and aging.

How to Prevent Lip Lines

There are several steps you can take to prevent lip lines from forming or worsening. The most important is to protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen and a hat when outside. Additionally, you should avoid smoking and minimize repetitive facial movements such as puckering, and pursing your lips.

How to Treat Lip Lines at Home

If you already have lip lines, there are some steps you can take to treat them at home. Applying a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid can also help keep your skin hydrated and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. You can also try skincare creams, which can stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of lip lines.
