Your mouth is one of the most expressive features on your face. From smiling to puckering for a kiss, the many small muscles around your mouth create the effects. Over time, the skin loses its elasticity, and creases in the skin can appear around the mouth from years of pursing the lips. Lip lines, also called smoker lines, make the mouth look older and less sensuous. At RIVKIN Aesthetics, we offer Botox® injections for mouth/lip lines treatment at our LA clinic for a more youthful mouth appearance.
The vertical lines that appear above the top lip and around the mouth are the creases in the skin when you pucker your lips. Years of smoking is a common cause of these lines, but anyone can experience lip lines with aging skin. The small wrinkles around the mouth can impact wearing cosmetics like lipstick, and these lines are undesirable for anyone who wants to retain a youthful appearance. Botox injections can be effective at smoothing lip lines for a more attractive mouth.
