What are Lipstick Lines?

Lipstick lines or lip wrinkles are sometimes known as lip lines or smoker’s lines. They appear as small vertical lines that run across the top and bottom lips of older adults. Lipstick can often settle in these cracks, making someone’s lips look more creviced and uneven, hence the name ‘lipstick lines.’

What causes Lipstick Lines?

Ageing is the primary factor that causes lip wrinkles. From between the ages of 30-40, lipstick bleed lines can develop as our lips start to gradually lose the collagen, elastin and fat stores that are found in youthful, nourished lips. This ageing process can cause deep lines to develop across our lips, while factors such as gravity, genetics and smoking also play a role. The result is a look that can leave us looking older than we actually are around our lips, with a sad-mouthed or drooping appearance.

Our Lip Wrinkle Treatments

Fuller and plumper lips can be achieved without fear of having a celebrity ‘trout pout’ by placing yourself in expert hands for the most natural of differences.

Most lip enhancements are achieved using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These are specifically developed for the lips and mouth area to achieve a natural look with long-lasting results of 9 – 12 months.

We only use FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable lip fillers designed with safety and efficacy in mind. This softens lipstick bleed lines and smooths vertical lip lines by enhancing the edge of your lips.

At your initial consultation with our qualified medical practitioners, we will discuss a personalised lip filler treatment plan that follows a subtle approach for fuller yet natural-looking lips. Building on the effect can always be achieved by subsequent top up treatments.

If you are experiencing lipstick lines or smokers lines and you would like to speak to one of our expert practitioners in London and Buckinghamshire, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today and we will be happy to help!

Get rid of lipstick lines and lip wrinkles with our leading non-surgical treatments.

How to get rid of lip wrinkles

The key to making lip wrinkles and lipstick lines disappear is using aesthetic treatments that will give your lips a supple structural boost. Our skin loses an estimated 1% of collagen each year, and this essential skin protein is crucial in giving our lips support. We also lose elastin and fat stores in the lips as we age, which further affects our skin elasticity and hydration. By seeking out treatments that work to restore moisture, hydration and volume, we can fill out the lines that develop in our lips as these vital supports decline.

Dermal Fillers for Lip Wrinkles

Dermal fillers will instantly add volume to your lips by filling in lipstick lines and lip wrinkles. These hyaluronic acid fillers will also boost your body’s own natural production of collagen over time to give you fuller lips over a longer period.

Skin Boosters for Lipstick Lines 

We also offer a nourishing lip booster from Restylane that works to quench and moisturise your lips from deep within. Collagen and elastin stores are rebooted while lip lines and wrinkles are smoothed out.

Ultherapy for Lip Wrinkles

Lipstick lines can also be minimised using our award-winning Ultherapy ultrasound treatment, which non-invasively boosts skin renewal around our lips to lift them up while eradicating lip wrinkles.
