Before & After Peri Oral / Smokers lines treated with Dermal Filler (1 ml of Premium Teoxane Filler)


Perioral lines, often referred to as “lip lines” “smoker’s lines” or “barcodes” which are the fine wrinkles that form around the mouth. These lines can be vertical or diagonal and typically become more noticeable as a person ages. They can result from a combination of factors, including aging, repetitive muscle movements such as pouting, sun exposure, genetics and even smoking or vaping. So even if you do not smoke you may still get these as they are a natural part of aging, they can contribute to an aged or tired appearance. Fortunately, advances in medical aesthetics offer effective solutions, such as dermal filler treatment, to address these lines and restore a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


Understanding Perioral Lines and Their Causes

Perioral lines tend to develop as the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production decreases over time, leading to reduced skin elasticity. Repetitive movements like smiling, talking, and sipping from straws can exacerbate the formation of these lines. Additionally, factors like genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices such as smoking or vaping can play a role in their development.


How can you prevent them from appearing

There are certain things you can do to help reduce the likelihood of these appearing, such as using a medical grade skincare. Always make sure you wear an SPF to prevent damage to the skin.


The Role of Dermal Filler Treatment

Dermal filler treatment has emerged as a powerful tool in the battle against perioral lines. Dermal fillers, typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, can effectively fill in and plump up the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When applied strategically around the mouth, dermal fillers can soften the look of perioral lines, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
