5 Ways to Get Rid of Lip Lines (“Smokers Lines”)
If you’re like many women over the age of thirty or forty, you may have begun to develop small, vertical lines forming just above your mouth and lips. These are often called “smoker’s lines” – even if you don’t smoke! – because smoking can cause or contribute to these lines! Unfortunately, whatever the cause of your “lip lines” they can make you look much older than you really are.
The good news is that we offer several highly effective treatments for “lip lines” and “smokers’ lines” at our Oakland County MedSpa!
What Causes Lip Lines?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to developing smoker’s lines – most of which have nothing to do with smoking.
People lose approximately one percent of their collagen-producing ability every year after age 20! So, aging is the biggest factor in lip lines – since a 50 year old, only produces 70 percent as much collagen as a 20 year old.
Additionally, your skin type and the way your skin ages depend largely on your genes. So if your parents developed lip lines, sadly, you likely will, too.
UV exposure from the sun’s rays (especially tanning!), as well as smoking and poor eating habits can also contribute to unsightly lines above the mouth.
CO2RE Skin Resurfacing
The revolutionary new Candela CO2RE fractional laser is one of the most advanced wrinkle reduction technologies. This state-of-the-art skin resurfacing treatment dramatically reduces wrinkles by removing the aged top layer of skin tissue, while simultaneously stimulating cell regeneration, and collagen and elastin production, with a fractional laser.
Microneedling with PRP for Lip Lines
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates the body’s own collagen production – improving wrinkles, lines & skin tone.
Microneedling uses the insertion of very fine short needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. As the skin repairs itself, it becomes plump again, filling in the “smokers lines.” And, when combined with PRP, the results can be astounding!
Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Microneedling
AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI has recently added the amazing Morphues8 to our wide array of wrinkle reduction technologies. This state-of-the-art skin remodeling treatment simultaneously provides skin regenerating microneedling, while delivering deep radiofrequency thermal energy to stimulate natural skin rebuilding. As the body’s production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are renewed, lip lines and wrinkles are reduced or eliminated.
Frax Laser Skin Resurfacing for Lip Lines
The Nordlys Ellipse Frax 1550 laser skin treatment is an amazing, state-of-the-art, skin care technology that comes from Scandinavia – the land known for flawless skin!
This Nordlys Ellipse Frax 1550 laser effectively treats unsightly wrinkles and fine lip lines, by using a combination of fractional and infrared lasers in one device. The heat generated by theFrax 1550 laser stimulates the body’s own collagen production which causes the skin to tighten and fill in the lines.
Frax is a quick, simple, painless and affordable wrinkle treatment with long-lasting results.
Juvéderm VOLBELLA for Lip Lines
Juvéderm VOLBELLA® XC is an injectible facial filler that adds subtle, natural looking volume to lips, and can be used to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines.
Juvéderm is a type of hyaluronic acid (HA) that is injected into the lines and folds in the face by a doctor or nurse, to replace the HA that the skin has lost. This restores volume and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds – taking years of a person’s appearance!
