Vertical Lip Lines (Smoker's Lines) Treatment in London
Vertical lip lines or smoker's lines are fine lines and wrinkles that go from the edges of the lips outwards either towards the nose or the chin (or both). They are very common in men and women and can be a source of self-consciousness. Whilst they are also called smoker's lines, they can affect non smokers also. Since the lips are a highly expressive part of the face lines and wrinkles natturally develop over time as we get older. Vertical lip lines are made worse by the thinning of the skin (due to lost collagen and elastin) which occurs when we age. This not only highlights these lines but also reduces the structure and definition of the lip area. Other causes of vertical lip lines include sun damage and genetic factors. In women, these lines can seem more prominant as they cause lipstick feathering or bleeding.
The Effective Treatment for Vertical Lip Lines (Smoker's lines)
Our combined approach to treating vertical lip lines uses anti-wrinkle muscle relaxing injections (with Botox ® injections ) and hyaluronic acid demal fillers. This treatment is effective because it tackels the two main causes of vertical lip lines. One is overactivity of the underlying muscle. Hence, the muscle relaxing injections stop puckering and wrinking of the skin. The second is that once these vertical lip lines form they become ingrained. So the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers help lift these lines and support them. To finish off we use dermal fillers to rstore the outline of the lips which provides further support to this area which in women will help with lipstick bleeding or feathering.

I recently hit my mid-thirties and had wanted to fix some age lines in my forehead. I took City Skin Clinic up on their offer of a half hour consultation with Dr Ibrahim. There’s no hard sell with these guys, by the end of the consultation I knew exactly what to expect in terms of the treatment process, what results I could expect and how much it’d cost me. I would recommend City Skin Clinic to anyone considering anti aging treatment.
Highly recommended. Dr. Ibrahim takes great care of you throughout the process, from consultation to procedure, she makes sure you are aware of every aspect of the service being carried out, while taking on board all your requests and concerns. I love my visits to city skin clinic!
