Vertical lines or the smoker’s lines are clearly visible on the upper lip. Smoking can cause these wrinkles to form, but factors can also be due to sun or hereditary. The most common reason for these is the repetitive mouth movements which are inevitable. Dermal fillers have very positive results and feedback for treating smoker’s lines.
HOW TO BEST TREAT VERTICAL LINES
Teosyal by Teoxane is used in the clinic to correct vertical lines. It is a soft hyaluronic acid based filler that contains lidocaine, which is an anaesthetic that reduces any pain or discomfort during the procedure. A topical cream can still requested and applied to the treatment area prior to the procedure. The improvement lasts up to 6 to 12 months as the product is absorbed into the body.
Patients receiving dermal filler procedures benefit so much as the procedure takes only about 30 minutes and has very minimal downtime. It is ideal for patients who avoid surgery because they can resume to their day to day activities and if swelling occurs, it will subside within 24 to 48 hours.
Anti Wrinkle Injections FOR VERTICAL LINES
Alternative treatment for vertical or smoker lines depend on the extremity. Anti Wrinkle Injections (Botulinum Toxin A) can be performed in conjunction with dermal fillers. It is also recommended by cosmetic doctors as the neurotoxin relaxes the muscles around the mouth and prevents the formation of lines and wrinkles.
