Smoker’s lines, also known as “lipstick lines,” are fine vertical wrinkles that appear on the upper lip and extend toward the nose. Although these lines are usually small, multiple lines can form simultaneously, creating a noticeable effect. They result from various factors, including aging, genetics, repetitive facial movements, and, in some cases, smoking.

Treatment at Aesthetic Envy

At Aesthetic Envy, our skilled nurse injectors specialize in treating smoker lines using the softest hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. A few precise injections can smooth out these fine lines, restoring a youthful appearance around your mouth.

Why Do Smokers Get Lines Around Their Mouth?

Smoking contributes to the formation of lines around the mouth due to the repetitive puckering motion made when dragging on a cigarette. Over time, this repeated action causes permanent wrinkles. Additionally, smoking damages the skin, making it more prone to wrinkles. To maintain youthful skin, quitting smoking and considering rejuvenating cosmetic treatments can be beneficial.

I’ve Never Smoked; Why Do I Have Smoker’s Lines?

It’s not uncommon for non-smokers to develop smoker’s lines. These lines can result from various factors, such as:

  • Repetitive Facial Movements:Drinking from bottles or the way your face moves when laughing or smiling can contribute to these lines.
  • Genetics:Your genetic makeup can make you more prone to developing wrinkles.
  • Thin Skin:Individuals with thinner skin are more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles.

How to Minimize Smoker’s Lines

If you’ve noticed smoker’s lines around your mouth and a loss of lip volume, lip injections can be an effective solution. Lip injections not only minimize lines but also add volume, restoring a youthful appearance.

Vertical lines, especially on the upper lip, are a prominent sign of aging. Often called smoker’s lines, these wrinkles can be caused by various factors, including genetics, cigarette smoke, sun exposure, and repetitive mouth movements. While vertical lines can be inevitable, there are effective ways to reduce their appearance.

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that promotes hydration and maintains clear, supple skin. These fillers provide positive results, smoothing out wrinkles and adding volume to the lips.

Depending on the severity of your smoker’s lines, additional treatments may be recommended alongside dermal fillers for optimal results. Here are some options:

  • Botulinum Toxin A Injections:These injections, often performed simultaneously with dermal fillers, help relax the muscles around the mouth, reducing the severity of lines and preventing them from becoming more pronounced.
  • Neurotoxin Injections:By relaxing the muscles responsible for line-causing movements, neurotoxin injections improve the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming.
