Lip wrinkles, which are sometimes called lip lines, lipstick lines, or smoker’s lines, are the little vertical lines that form on the lips of older adults. These lines are notoriously difficult to conceal. Getting rid of your lip lines, rather than trying to cover them up, can easily take 10 years off your face.
Lip wrinkles form on both the lips themselves and on the skin of the upper lip. On the lips, they appear as a set of fine vertical lines, often stretching from one side of the mouth to the other. It’s not uncommon for lipstick to settle in these lines, making them appear darker and deeper than they actually are. Above the lip, vertical lines stretch upward from the lip toward the nose. These wrinkles are typically deeper and more pronounced than the ones on your actual lips.
Many of us also have asymmetrical lips where they maybe uneven, or the top lip may be a lot thinner than the bottom.
A range of dermal fillers can be used to create youthful plump lips, add fullness, remove unwanted lines, enhance definition and hydrate dry aged lips. Alternatively, non invasive procedures such as laser and chemical peels are an excellent method in removing fine lines and rejuvenate the skin around the mouth area.
The most common concerns for the lips and lip area are:
- Uneven lips
- Downturn smile
- Lip lines
- Thin lips
- Dry, dehydrated lips
