Smokers Lines/Lipstick Bleed Lines
Smokers lines, also known as lipstick lines or perioral lines, are vertical wrinkles that appear above the upper lip. These lines are often associated with smoking, but they can also be caused by natural aging, genetics, and repeated facial expressions.
Botox is a popular treatment for smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, including smokers lines. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, which can create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
To treat smokers lines with Botox, small amounts of the botulinum toxin are injected into the affected area. The treatment is usually quick and relatively painless, and there is no downtime required. The effects of Botox typically last for several months before gradually wearing off.
It’s important to note that while Botox can be an effective treatment for smoothing out smokers lines, it may not be suitable for everyone.
