As people age, they naturally begin to develop wrinkles and fine lines on their faces. Because people move their mouths a great deal, this part of the face is often more susceptible to developing the signs of aging than other areas. Fortunately, there are now a variety of cosmetic treatments available that can help patients improve the appearance of their aging lips and mouth without the need for extended downtime.
The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center is committed to providing patients in the Montgomery, Remington, Highpoint, Sixteen Mile, Sharonville, Kenwood, Milford, Covington, and Cincinnati areas of Ohio with a wide range of effective cosmetic treatments. If you’re interested in correcting your aging lips and mouth, don’t hesitate; contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment.
How do the Signs of Aging Affect the Lips and Mouth?
Many of the most common wrinkles that can form on the face develop near the mouth. Also referred to as nasolabial folds, smile lines run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Marionette lines are vertical lines that run from the corners of the mouth down the face. Vertical lip lines often form as the result of regular lip movements, but can also be made worse through regular smoking. Because of this, these lines are sometimes referred to as “smoker’s lines.”
The lips are also affected by the passage of time. The fat and collagen within the lips can begin to break down over time, leaving the lips less full and soft.
How can I Correct my Aging Lips and Mouth?
The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center is proud to provide our patients with a broad range of cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of nearly any patient’s aging lips and mouth.
Belotero and Botox are both simple ways to improve the appearance of lip lines and wrinkles. If you’re interested in correcting lip lines without the need for injectables, ThermiSmooth may be your ideal treatment option. Juvederm is another excellent injectable treatment that can be used to add volume to the lips.
If you’re interested in correcting aging lips or mouth wrinkles, the first step is to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Shalini Gupta. During this appointment, Dr. Gupta will take into account your unique condition and help decide what treatment or combination of treatments are right for you.
