Botox Mouth Lip Lines Treatment
When you pucker your lips to give a kiss, small lines also pucker around your mouth. Pursing your lips to kiss, smoke or drink from a straw all use the same muscles and create the same puckering effect. Years of puckering can result in small lip lines around the mouth that detract from the youthfulness of the lips. To smooth away these small wrinkles, Timeless MedSpa NYC offers Botox® mouth lip lines treatment at our UES clinic.
The lip lines gradually appear as part of aging as the skin becomes thinner and less elastic. These wrinkles have been termed “smoker lines” due to the prevalence in people who smoked cigarettes for many years. However, you do not need to smoke or vape to get lip lines. The puckering movement is made for many reasons and as the skin ages, those little lines can become permanently etched in the skin. Botox® offers one treatment to smooth these lines to help improve the appearance of the lips and mouth.
Smooth Lip or Smoker Lines
The muscles around the mouth can tighten and result in more pronounced lip lines. Botox injections are used to relax the underlying muscles, which can smooth smoker lines caused by muscle contractions. Botox blocks the nerve signals that stimulate the muscles to contract, which works great to smooth most dynamic lines. The treatment is non-invasive – the injections can be performed during an office visit at our clinic on the Upper East Side, and there is no downtime needed. The benefits of the Botox treatment begin to be noticeable in a few days, and the results can last 3-4 months.
While Botox mouth lip lines treatment can smooth these small wrinkles, it is often combined with dermal fillers for the best results. Even though Botox relaxes the muscles that cause lip lines, the skin around the mouth can be very thin as you get older. Using a lip line filler can work wonderfully with the Botox to create a more youthful, attractive mouth.
