Vertical Lip Lines
Vertical lines above the top lip, more commonly known as “Smokers Lines” are caused by the repetitive movement of puckering the lips whilst we are also naturally aging.
With a massive national reduction in smoking your health will undoubtedly benefit from stopping but the visible effects of smoking remain.
What Causes Smokers Lines?
Every time the muscles around the mouth contract to pout, suck or pucker, the skin ripples. As we get older and the skin becomes less flexible and it eventually cracks and permanent creases are then formed.
Also a loss of fat from within the lips causes them to shrink, this contributes to the puckering of the skin. For more information on Thin Lips, visit our page.
What Are The Best Treatments For Smokers Lines?
By far the best approach is to catch them early before the creases become too noticeable and deep. However, we can treat Vertical Lines with the use of Dermal Fillers, in particular we recommend Lip Fillers. Lip Fillers will directly fill the lines, slightly inflate the lips (if required) and improve the shape if it has been lost.
Sometimes more than one approach is required, the later the condition is left and the more severe it becomes, the more difficult it is to maintain the area.
