Lip wrinkles are common for someone that is aging. This is often due to making the same movements with your mouth over the years. It is more common, however, for people that smoke. This is due to making the pursing motion while smoking. No matter the reason, below are two tips on how you can diminish these wrinkles.
One option you have is to use dermal fillers. You must visit a dermatologist or other doctor that can do this procedure. It is done in the office and you can go home the same day. The doctor can choose from different types of dermal fillers. One type is using hyaluronic acid derivatives. These substances mimic what is found in the lowest layer of your skin, which is known as the dermis. This filler will fill lines that you have on your lips, as well as pump your lips. This type will last you approximately four to six months.
Another type of dermal filler is using fat that is taken from another area of your body. The fat is then injected into the wrinkles to give the area more volume. This will plump out the wrinkle area enough that the wrinkles will diminish. It is not known how long this type of filler will last but some say it lasts much longer when compared to other types.
Human derived collagen is also a type of filler. This collagen is taken from your body and then injected in the wrinkles to fill them in. Because collagen is taken from your body you have less of a chance of having an allergic reaction to it. This type will last a few months in most cases.
Lasers and Peels
If you have fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth the doctor may suggest using a laser light and peel to help with them. With this, the outer layer of your skin is removed using a type of laser light. The doctor runs the light back and forth over the wrinkled area. Removing the layer of skin will reveal younger looking skin.
The doctor may also use a chemical peel in order to achieve the same results. This peel is made of a type of acid. The doctor places the peel over the area and lets it sit for a certain amount of time. The peel is then peeled off removing the top layer of your skin. If you choose this, you may want to consider having your entire face done while you are at the doctor's office.
Removing these skin cells will also help improve the texture of your skin, as well as even out the color. This will result in a glowing complexion that can also make you feel younger.
Talk to the doctor you choose about this information and they can give you many more details.
