What are Smoker's Lines?

Smoker’s lines, also known as lipstick lines, lip lines, and lip wrinkles, are the vertical lines that appear around the lips as you grow older. They’re known as smoker’s lines because they’re especially common amongst smokers and other individuals who open pucker up their lips. Lip wrinkles often form around the lips, stretching from one side of the mouth to the others. Removing smoker’s lines can take a decade off your face. We provide personalized dermal fillers to reduce the prominence of unwanted lip wrinkles.

Causes of Smoker's Lines

After the age of 20, your body produces 1% less collagen every year. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together and makes your skin look firm and voluminous. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid, a gelatinous substance that makes your skin look hydrated, also decreases. The gradual loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid makes your skin look thin, eventually leading to the onset of wrinkles. Smoking and sun exposure can speed up the process.

Dermal Fillers for Smoker's Lines

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume underneath the skin. We provide a wide range of dermal fillers to restore your skin’s depleting hyaluronic acid reserves and stimulate collagen production, thus reversing the effects of aging on your skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, Juvéderm, and Versa, instantly add volume underneath your skin to fill out the fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, collagen-inducing fillers, such as Sculptra and Radiesse, encourage your body to produce new collagen fibers, making your skin look firm.
