The majority of patients seek treatment because of thinned lips and/or the emergence of vertical radial lines around the mouth in women. These lines are sometimes referred to as smokers’ lines, but nonsmokers can also develop them. Age-related deep lip fat loss can cause the lips to thin, particularly the top lip. Smokers’ lines, which oddly only affect women, are mostly caused by age-related fat loss around the lips and a decrease in estrogen.

Two methods are effective for treating wrinkles around the mouth. A lip filler is one. The portion of the smoker’s lines closest to the lip is smoothed out by filling in the red lip. The alternative is to employ a tiny amount of a neurotoxic to relax the muscles that are the cause of those lines, such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. This means that Botox can help older ladies to deal with wrinkles brought on by natural and unnatural factors.

Fortunately, you can use Botox around the mouth. Botox is an injectable form of botulinum toxin, a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is commonly used for treating wrinkles or lines around the mouth such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds,ย  as well as for reducing sweating in the face and neck area. Botox blocks the nerve signals that cause muscles to move, resulting in a temporary reduction of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. You can also get your injector to treat uneven lips with Botox. However, it is important to consult a certified specialist for the procedure and to be aware of the possible side effects of Botox.

Deep lines can be treated with Botox if they are brought on by muscular action; otherwise, it won’t be nearly as effective. I would suggest a resurfacing laser, chemical peel, or filler with Botox injections for those lines. It’s crucial to understand that Botox shouldn’t be used excessively. Definitely not better is more. The reason is that humans rely on these muscles for a variety of crucial tasks like speaking, eating, chewing, drinking from a straw, and smiling, among others. You should only get Botox top-ups for certain cases such as if your Botox is wearing off and if your doctor permits you to do so.
