What are smoker’s lines and how are they treated?
They are the lines between the nose and upper lip that give us an aging appearance.
We have a muscle around our mouth called the orbicularis oris which we use to move the mouth when drinking from a cup or bottle, smoking and applying lipstick.
All of these movements make the muscle stronger and, combined with the natural aging process, make these lines appear even when we are resting, becoming deeper and more prominent when we use our mouth.
I don’t smoke so why do I have smoker’s lines?
Because we use our mouth to drink, talk, apply lip stick, use a straw and whistle we get these lines. They are called smoker’s lines because they are more prominent in smokers.
How are they treated?
A combination of Botox and filler can treat these lines making them softer and less angry.
