Lipstick lines, smoker’s line, lip lines—there are many names for those pesky, vertical wrinkles that appear above and around your pout.
Whatever you call them, the goal is always to get rid of them.
So how exactly do you get lip lines, and how do you prevent them from getting worse? Just like crow’s feet or forehead wrinkles, there’s plenty of false information out there about how to magically achieve younger-looking skin overnight.
Lip lines are any vertical wrinkles running from the top of your lip to the bottom of your nose. There’s no need to panic as this sort of wrinkle tends to sneak up slowly over time but more importantly, it can be treated. As you age the collagen and elastin in your skin begins to breakdown.
These proteins are what keep your skin looking tight and soft when you’re younger, thus the onslaught of wrinkles as you age occurs. You also have a decreasing amount of oils to keep the upper layer of skin, known as the epidermis sufficiently hydrated.
There are many options, at Hamilton Skin Clinic we have a variety of ways to approach this problem head-on. A combination of anti-wrinkle medicine and dermal fillers will address this concern beautifully.
