Upper lip wrinkles are a common concern for many women.These pesky lines usually start to appear around the age of 40 when the skin loses elasticity, muscle tone and collagen. Lines around the mouth are formed in much the same way as lines around the eyes or forehead, in that they are mainly caused by muscle movement.
Often the term smoker’s lines is used to describe them, which might cause you to assume that they only occur in smokers, but that’s definitely not the case – it affects non smokers too. Smoking however accelerates the formation of these lines due to repeat pursuing of the lips and the effect of smoke toxins on the skin. Upper lip lines are therefore seen in smokers much earlier than non smokers. Other triggers include the using straws or drinking directly from bottles. Both of these common actions require you to purse your lips – which places pressure above your upper lip.
At Jeunesse MedSpa® we strongly recommend trying to prevent the formation including stopping smoking and reducing sun exposure etc. These lines cannot be eliminated completely but rather reduce significantly We typically treat these lines with dermal fillers, or wrinkle relaxers or a combination of both. The depth of the lines and extent of puckering will influence treatment modalities.
