Smoker's Lines

also known as vertical lip lines or barcode lines

As the skin ages it can become thinner and less elastic.  Years of lip pursing from talking, eating and facial expression pass by and the muscles that purse the lips become stronger.  As a result, lines can begin to form along the lips and above them both at rest and with movement.

Wrinkle smoothing injections into the lips can reduce the strength of these muscles and reduce how much these lines show.  Hyaluronic fillers into the lips and along the lip border and above can disguise these lines too.  The quality of the skin can also be improved with skin boosters to hydrate and hide these lines.

At The Facial Rejuvenation Clinic, our practitioner will assess your lip area and decide which and how many of these treatments would be required to improve the appearance of these lines around your mouth.  She will also ensure that their appearance is kept natural and not overfilled.
