Lip Lines: The best treatment options for wrinkles around your mouth.

We have all heard of crow’s feet and frown lines, but what exactly are lip lines? Lip lines,sometimes called lipstick lines or smokers lines, are the small wrinkles that form just above your upper lip. The three main causes of wrinkles above and around your lips are smoking, sun exposure, and old age. Smoking wreaks havoc on the human face and causes premature aging lines and spots to appear everywhere.  Too much sun exposure, without sun protection, will also cause wrinkles and creases to appear on the skin, especially in those people with fair skin.  In many cases, wrinkled lips are simply a result of genetics.  Additionally, as you age, you lose volume in your lips, further exacerbating the wrinkles that occur through movement.  Fortunately, , there are many treatments available that can reduce or eliminate wrinkles around your lips. Quitting smoking and taking care to apply sunscreen will help your lips be as smooth as possible. Good hydration and nutrition will also keep your lips healthy and pretty.  Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin/lips, giving a healthy, youthful appearance.  Juvederm and Restylane fillers are designed to fill in the lines and wrinkles as well.
