Botox Mouth Lip Lines Treatment
Years of puckering lips to kiss, drinking from a straw or puffing on a cigarette can leave little vertical lip lines around the mouth. The skin loses its elasticity and volume with age, allowing these tiny wrinkles to outline the lips. If you have lip lines that are impacting the border of your mouth, Botox injections may be the solution. The aesthetics team at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offers Botox mouth/lip lines treatment at our medical center in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Botox injections are effective on dynamic lines that are caused by muscle movement and contractions. The muscle that creates vertical lip lines is called the orbicularis oris. This circular muscle allows you to pucker your lips, which is where those small mouth lines form. Relaxing this muscle can impact the mouth or lip lines, smoothing the outline of your lips for a more youthful appearance.
Smoothing Wrinkles Around the Mouth
Lips lines, also called “smoker’s lines,” are a common facial aging complaint. The good news is there are non-surgical options to smooth these noticeable lines. Facial filler injections can be useful, as can Botox injections. For Botox lip line treatment, multiple injections relax the different areas of the orbicularis oris around the upper and lower lip. Botox results can take several days to become evident, but they last 3-4 months or longer. The treatment can be repeated as necessary to maintain the desired effect. In some cases, both facial filler and Botox injections work together to create more youthful, full lips without wrinkles or lines.
