If you are looking to prevent or minimize lip lines, Botox may be the answer. Botox for lip line prevention works to minimizing excessive “pursing” of the mouth, which creates wrinkles.
The best treatment for lip lines is prevention – which can include our Botox injections as well as being aware of how you use your mouth on a regular basis.
A tendency towards developing lip lines may be in part genetic, however, it is also very much impacted by your daily behavior.
A musician who plays the trumpet, for example, is putting more stress on the mouth area than someone who is not a musician.
The Effects of Smoking and Vaping on Mouth Wrinkles
Any type of smoking, whether it is tobacco or marijuana, can encourage the creation of lip lines due to the habitual patterns the mouth employs to hold the cigarette or joint. Smoke further dries out the skin.
Vaping, which uses moisture instead of smoke to deliver tobacco and other inhalants, won’t dry the skin in the same way. However, in vaping, the position of the mouth is the same as with smoking, so there is still a risk for wrinkles.
Therefore, if you do choose to smoke or vape, be aware that it can increase your chances of developing lip lines.
How to Get Rid of Lip Lines
Reducing any tight pursing of the lips is the key to line treatment, and Botox can assist with this. Botox also helps lip treatments such as “blanching” to last longer by decreasing the movement of the mouth.
Our signature technique and dilution of Botox allow us to treat this area without overly affecting lip movement. You will appear natural and retain your beautiful smile.
