We Provide Professional Smokers’ Lines Treatment
IF you’re looking to get rid of smokers’ lines, you’ve come to the right place. Uptown Medical Aesthetics provides patients throughout Northglenn, CO and the surrounding areas with professional smokers’ lines treatment. These stubborn wrinkles are expected in smokers and older persons, even those that haven’t necessarily ever smoked. These lines can mar an otherwise smooth complexion. We offer non-surgical treatments for getting rid of smokers’ lines.
What Are Smokers’ Lines?
Smokers’ lines, also referred to as lipstick lines or lip lines, are vertical lines that can form around the mouth due to excessive smoking or aging. These stubborn lines can run from the upper lip towards the nose and often stretch from one side of the mouth to the other. While these lines are small on their own, they often appear in groups and create an uneven and cracked appearance.
Why Do Smokers’ Lines Appear?
Smokers’ lines can appear for various reasons. For one, they are a natural side-effect of aging. When we age, our skin gradually produces less collagen and elastin, two essential skin proteins that keep our skin supple and smooth. With less collagen and elastin comes thinner and less elastic skin that is vulnerable to wrinkles. In addition to age, there are other causes of smokers’ lines.
What Causes Smokers’ Lines?
In addition to the natural aging process, various factors cause smokers’ lines to appear. These factors include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Repetitive lifestyle habits
- Smoking and vaping
- Sun exposure
- Drinking from a straw
- Drinking from a bottle
- Repeated facial expressions
- Playing musical instruments
How To Get Rid Of Smokers’ Lines
There’s no one right way to get rid of smokers’ lines, and it’s important to first consult a professional to determine what treatment option would best suit you. The treatments we offer at Uptown Medical Aesthetics help restore hydration, strength, and support to these stubborn lines. Non-surgical treatment at our state-of-the-art medical facility is always an option to rid your face of smokers’ lines. Other methods of treating these lines include stopping smoking, staying healthy, and avoiding further sun damage.
What Are My Treatment Options for Smokers’ Lines?
At Uptown Medical Aesthetics, we offer various treatment options that can help reduce smokers’ lines. The treatment options for smokers’ lines include Botox® for smokers’ lines, various other injections for smokers’ lines, micro-needling, lasers, threads, skincare products, and more. The treatment options we offer for smokers’ lines include:
- Dermal fillers – We have various dermal filler options that can be used to treat smokers’ lines. After applying a topical numbing cream, a small needle is used to inject the filler into your vertical lip lines to decrease their size and severe appearance.
- Botox® – This injectable type can help decrease the severity of vertical lip lines for three to four months. Results are best when combined with other treatment options.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Smokers’ Lines Treatment?
If you are a good candidate for Botox® or dermal fillers, then there’s a good chance that you’re a good candidate for smokers’ lines treatment. Good candidates for Botox® and dermal fillers include those who are physically healthy, don’t smoke, are committed to maintaining good skin health, and have realistic goals in mind to improve their appearance. Additionally, good candidates for smokers’ lines treatment will have smokers’ lines around their mouths.
What To Expect With Smokers’ Lines Treatment
With a wide array of non-surgical treatment options for smokers’ lines, knowing what to expect comes with which treatment was determined best suited for you and your unique needs. For instance, taking vitamins, staying hydrated, and using anti-wrinkle products can help, but they won’t produce immediate results. Only professional aesthetic treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers can produce those results. The application of either product is an effective treatment for smokers’ lines.
How Long After Treatment Will It Take For Me To See Results?
Depending on which type of treatment you opt for, you may see results as soon as the same day. Injectables like Botox® and dermal fillers can produce immediate results. With injectable treatments like dermal fillers, results vary from person to person. Still, they can typically be seen within 24 to 48 hours after treatment from smokers’ lines.
