What is Upper Lip Line (Smoker Line) Softening?

Upper Lip Line (Smoker Line) Softening is a specialized cosmetic procedure designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the upper lip area, commonly known as smoker lines. These lines often develop due to repetitive lip movements, aging, and other factors, and can be a source of self-consciousness for many individuals. Our treatment targets these specific lines, offering a solution to achieve a smoother and more youthful appearance.

How Does Upper Lip Line (Smoker Line) Softening Work?

During the procedure, our skilled professionals utilize a technique called subcision, which involves the insertion of a fine needle beneath the skin to break up fibrous bands that contribute to the formation of smoker lines. This process encourages collagen production and stimulates tissue regeneration, ultimately softening the appearance of the lines and improving overall skin texture. The result is a more refined and rejuvenated upper lip area.

Benefits of Upper Lip Line (Smoker Line) Softening

Why You Need It:

  • Smoker lines, also known as lipstick lines or lip lines, are the fine vertical lines that appear around a person’s mouth. These stubborn wrinkles are a common sign of aging, even when a person hasn’t necessarily smoked. As we age, we lose a layer of fat in the lip area and you can see the muscle around the lips working which creates a disharmonious appearance. Smoker lines can ruin the look of an otherwise smooth and flawless complexion, and they are often difficult to conceal, even when a person tries to hide them with makeup. Subcision is a simple and safe procedure that can release tethers and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The result is a softer appearance around the mouth. Sometimes Botox/Jeuveau and/or Filler are also necessary for optimal results, depending on anatomy.
