Smoker lines are perioral lines that are not necessary caused by smoking. With aging, you’ll begin to get vertical lines above your lips from the shape your mouth makes during inhalation.
Lip fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are an affordable, non-invasive, and well-tolerated way to get rid of the unattractive wrinkles we call smoker lines.
How to Reduce Smoker Lines
There are certain lifestyle choices we make every day that can help reduce the chances of getting smoker lines. Preventing deep formation is the best way to keep your face looking youthful and healthy.
Using sunscreen each day, no matter the weather, will help protect natural collagen from breaking down. Using straws or drinking from water bottle nozzles can also create these stubborn lines. Avoiding these things can help keep them from forming in the first place. Lastly, stop smoking. Getting the help you need to beat the deadly habit is the best thing you can do for your overall health, including preventing lines and wrinkles.
Filler For Smokers’ Lines
We use FDA-approved dermal fillers to bring back smoothness and youthful skin to your face.
JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally found sugar molecule in the body. As we age, the hyaluronic acid we naturally create begins to diminish. With that comes lines and loss of collagen. Because of its unique small particle size, JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® can re-deliver this naturally plumping substance to minimize fine vertical smoker’s lines.
