Producing a Proud Pout

Producing a Proud Pout

Over time, our skin loses overall elasticity and the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) becomes more fragile. Unfortunately, the lips are no exception.

Lip "Liners"

The loss of volume, frequent repetitive motion, and facial expressions can all create small, vertical lines surrounding the mouth.

These are commonly referred to as “smoker’s lines”, a term which can be misleading. In fact, these perioral wrinkles affect smokers and nonsmokers alike. This is simply due to engaging the muscles around the mouth by pursing your lips.

With age, some people are still able to see these wrinkles even when the face is at rest.

Real Solutions ... Not Just Lip Service

One of the most effective methods used by professionals to soften these lines are injectables known as neuromodulators. These work by restricting movement of the underlying muscle, lessening the degree to which a person able to “pucker” their lips. This results in fewer lines with facial expressions.

Another option for those with noticeable lines around the mouth are injectable fillers, which work by restoring the volume in the lips themselves. They utilize a naturally-occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid that, when injected directly into the lips, stimulates collagen production and produces a smooth, youthful appearance.

Fillers are especially helpful for softening deep wrinkles, and can be injected directly into the unwanted lines.
