What causes lip lines or smoker’s lines?
Lip lines, also known as smoker’s lines or barcode lines, are the vertical wrinkles that extend from the red lip border away from the mouth. They are often more prominent on the upper lip, and are a common sign of ageing.
Lip lines are the result of repetitive skin bunching that occurs with normal mouth movements. Bunching of the skin causes it to crease. Over time this leads to the lines becoming permanently etched into the skin. The name smoker’s lines references the fact that smoker’s purse their lips when inhaling cigarette smoke. This movement is what most often causes the wrinkles.
Smoking, sun exposure, ageing and genetics all play in role in the development of vertical lip lines. They lead to a loss of skin collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, weakening the skin.
We can improve lip lines with anti-wrinkle injections, and supported with wrinkle filler.
