Smoker’s Lines Surrey

How can we help?

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

What Causes Smoker’s Lines?

Sometimes referred to as “kiss lines”, smoker’s lines are creases on your upper lip that form from repeated puckering or sucking motions. While we’re young, these lines naturally fade as our skin has enough collagen and elastin to restore itself. As we age, depleted collagen and elastin levels cause wrinkles to stick.

Although you may not smoke, these signs of ageing may still affect you. Smokers’ lines may appear from applying your makeup, drinking through a straw, or even kissing. 

Wrinkles and lines can deepen if you spend excessive time in the sun or smoke. UV rays from the sun lead to further decreases in elastin and collagen, and smoking harms the blood vessels below your skin, slowing the oxygen flow.

Prematurely aged skin can impact your confidence; however, there are treatments to remedy this issue. With anti-wrinkle injections, it’s possible to smooth the smoker’s lines and bring a refreshed look of youth to your skin.

How We Treat Smoker’s Lines

The great news is that we can treat your smokers’ lines without surgery. Using injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers, we can flatten unwanted lines and give you a fresh, youthful appearance.

Every treatment starts with a thorough facial assessment. Here, we’ll examine your wrinkles and facial structures to identify the best approach. 

Botox is an effective way of dealing with wrinkles. We’ll inject the solution into targetted areas of your face to relax muscles that lay beneath the affected skin. The procedure takes less than an hour and has no downtime.

In some cases, we’ll also use dermal fillers. Again, we’ll inject specific areas to restore lost volume. You’ll notice the results immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes Smoker’s Lines?

Smokers’ lines do not always come about from smoking. They’re also sometimes referred to as kiss lines or lipstick lines. The cause of these lines is often a combination of the natural ageing process, the depletion of naturally-occurring collagen and elastin proteins, and repeated facial movements.

What Is Botox?

Botox is a branded product containing Botulinum-A Toxin, a neurotoxic protein that blocks nerve transmissions and relaxes muscles at the injection site. Outside of facial aesthetics, Botox is commonly used elsewhere in medicine to treat migraines, relieve spasms, and more. Even though it has ‘toxin’ in its name, Botulinum-A Toxin is safe when injected by a skilled and experienced professional. Side effects are minimal. You may experience some flu-like symptoms and swelling around the treatment site; however, these side effects will pass within days.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid (HA) to provide volume to your skin. HA is a safe solution commonly found in the human body. When injected into sunken and wrinkled skin, HA attracts water molecules to restore plumpness.
