The appearance of any fine line or wrinkle on your face is worrisome as you age, but what about when fine vertical lines appear on your lips? Lip lines are caused by pursing lips, eating, talking, using a straw, genetics and smoking, virtually everything in life. They start early so treatment needs to begin at first sight.
Whether you have early fine lines or deep creases, here are two different procedure options that can keep your lips wrinkle-free and looking youthful.
1. Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler
Using filler temporarily improves lip lines and loss of volume, but I prefer Fat Transfer if we are going down that path. Fat, unlike filler, won’t slip out of the creases and is a more permanent option. It also tends to look more natural.
The newest and best option that is great for all patients is Microneedling. During this treatment, we use a special tool with tiny needles to make micro wounds across the targeted area. The treatment helps to rebuild and strengthen collagen to help these lines virtually vanish. We offer a variety of microneedling options and during your consultation will determine which is best for you. Regardless of your age, you WILL see improvements and the more treatments, the better the results. It is a win for everyone, and a true investment in your skin.
