Smokers Lines

Smokers lines, also known as lipstick lines or perioral wrinkles, are fine lines and wrinkles that primarily appear around the mouth and lips. These lines can detract from a smooth and youthful complexion. They are called "smokers lines" due to their frequent occurrence in individuals who smoke. They are caused by repetitive lip movements like puckering, smiling, or smoking, which break down collagen and elastin in the skin. Additionally, the natural decline of collagen and elastin with age, sun exposure, smoking, and genetic predispositions play significant roles in the development of these wrinkles around the mouth.


Find out more below to discover which treatments can help reduce smokers lines.

Botulinum Toxin
Type A

Botulinum toxin type A can be injected into the muscles around the mouth to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the muscles, which smooths the skin and lessens the prominence of these lines, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The effects on smokers’ lines typically last several months before a repeat treatment is needed to maintain the results.

You must book a free consultation with our aesthetic nurse Lisa at least 48hrs before your treatment, as Botulinum toxin type A is prescription only.

The results are immediate and can last anywhere from six months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors

Polynucleotides is an innovative concept of regenerative medicine that also aids reducing oxidative stress by scavenging free radicals, which accumulate in the skin due to factors like stress, cellular damage, or UV exposure. By boosting fibroblast activity, it stimulates collagen and elastin production leading to the reduction of wrinkles, including those caused by repetitive lip movements such as smoking, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.
