Smokers’ Lines

What are these and how can they be corrected?

These are vertical lines on the upper lip. They can occur in non-smokers too. These are skin creases formed by repeated muscle movements around the mouth. They are best corrected with fillers. It is important to uses a light filler here as not to create a bulk or a duck like lip. A light filler can provide a blanket coverage and smooth out this area. A small amount of Botox can also help in reducing the muscle movements that normally reinforce these lines.

What are the benefits of treating smokers’ lines?

Using dermal fillers can help hydrate this area and smooth out the lines. By putting some filler in the margin of the lip can contour the lip and even out the lines at the margin. Filler can be used to reform the cupids bow and the philtrum’s columns (prominent lines from cupids bow to the nose). This gives a more youthful appearance. By injecting a small amount of Botox, the muscle movement around the mouth can be reduced so that the lines are not reinforced and the effects of the treatment can last longer.

What are the side effects botox and filler for smokers’ lines?

The main side effects are bruising and swelling due to the filler injection. Sometimes Botox can relax the muscle too much causing problems with sipping and using a straw. These effects are short lived and usually settling within a fortnight.

What is the downtime with smokers’ lines?

Up to 1 week for the redness, bruising and swelling to resolve.

How long do the results last for smokers’ lines treated with fillers and botox?

Effects are usually visible at 2 weeks and results may last up to 6 months.

How much does it cost to treat smokers’ lines?

Usually 1 syringe of filler is ample and costs £375.

"My look is natural"

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
