I have smoker’s wrinkles around my mouth. I would like to remove them without surgery. What is the best injectable filler to use in this area?
Smoker’s wrinkles, lipstick bleed lines, and other wrinkles around the mouth are extremely challenging issues for both the physician and patient. Although dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm will certainly help with filling the wrinkles and plumping the lips, which also decreases the wrinkles on the lipstick line, for really deep wrinkles, a laser treatment or medium to deep chemical peel may likely be required to effectively reduce the appearance of these lines. In cases where the lines are worse with excessive motion of the mouth, a small amount of Botox or Dysport will help with this as well. Your physician will be able to help you decide which procedures would be right for you.
