Botox Mouth Lip Lines Cosmetic Treatment
Every time you pucker your lips to give a kiss or sip your favorite beverage through a straw, you are using the orbicularis oris muscles within the lips. As you age, this pursing or puckering of the lips leaves vertical lines in the skin as these muscles do their job. Lip lines, or “smoker’s lines,” are a common complaint that comes with age, especially with women. Our aesthetics team at LM Medical NYC offers Botox® mouth lips lines cosmetic treatment to smooth away those wrinkles at our clinics in Manhattan.
The lips are one of the most sensuous features, but vertical lip lines can diminish the appearance of your mouth. The skin around the mouth is delicate, which is why lip lines are often some of the first wrinkles to appear on the face. Botox injections can be used to relax the orbicularis oris muscles that contract to create vertical lip lines. With a quick injection treatment, lip lines can smooth away and create more youthful, sensuous lips.
Eliminate Vertical Lip Lines
Botox cosmetic injections are safe and effective for eliminating vertical lip lines. The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and results can be seen within a week. Botox works by blocking muscle contraction signals from the nerves, relaxing the muscles to smooth dynamic lines and wrinkles. The results can last for 2-4 months before another treatment is needed to maintain smooth, line-free lips.
Both Dr. Morgan (our expert dermatologist) and Dr. Lesley (our skilled facial plastic surgeon) can perform Botox mouth lip lines cosmetic treatment.
