27 Nov Smokers Lines
What are they?
Smoker’s lines or lip lines are the little vertical lines that form on the lips of older adults. 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.
Why does this happen?
Lip wrinkles on the upper lip are often caused by smoking. This produce free radicals in the body, which contribute to premature ageing. It’s also possible that the repetitive motion of a drag could contribute to lip wrinkles. For exceptional results River Aesthetics recommend using a combination of dermal fillers & Skin Remodelling Profhilo®.
