What are smokers lines?
Smokers lines or “pucker lines” are fine lines that form around the mouth. These lines often become deep and more noticeable with age, as well as being exaggerated by smoking. Lines can be caused when the muscles of the face contract repeatedly, like when puckering your lips to smoke a cigarette. Over time, this repeated muscle movement leads to the formation of wrinkles. There are a few different treatments to get rid of smokers lines that can be used to reduce the appearance of these lines. Botox for smokers lines is a popular option, as it relaxes the muscles that cause the lines to form. Dermal fillers for smokers lines are another option, as they can help to plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles. However, it is important to note that these treatments are not permanent, and will need to be repeated periodically in order to maintain results.
