Wrinkle Reducing Treatments to Eliminate Smoker’s Lines and Wrinkles
If you are or have been a smoker, chances are you have smoker’s lines. These are the deep lines around your mouth. Although these lines are typically associated with smoking, they can also be a natural result of aging and genetics. The muscles in your face become accustomed to being in an unnatural position and eventually weaken. Along with weakened muscles and the lack of collagen, the lines around your mouth begin to deepen and affect your youthful appearance. Another problem many smokers have is deep lines in the forehead. There are several treatments a dermatologist can provide to help eliminate these smoker’s wrinkles and lines.
P. Alexander Ataii M.D. has provided over 15,000 Botox treatments, as well as thousands of Dysport and Xeomin treatments, all of which are beneficial for smoothing forehead and smoker’s lines.
Treatment Options for Lines:
- Botox is used to block the nerve impulses in the muscles of the area being treated. Botox is also the preferred treatment for your dermatologist to eliminate smoker’s lines around your mouth. A filler can be used to plump up the lines around your mouth for an overall smoother facial appearance.
- Xeomin is one of the newest products available to eliminate the deep lines in your forehead or the lines between your eyebrows. Xeomin works similar to Botox in that it weakens the muscles, so they are unable to contract, which minimizes the appearance of lines.
- Dysport injections are becoming extremely popular for those who want a quick onset of results. Dysport begins working within one to two days after the injections, while Botox typically takes about two to seven days to begin working.
Although it is possible to have Botox injections in the lines around your mouth, most dermatologists suggest that you have a wrinkle filler in addition to the use of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin for the lines that form around the mouth. Smoking can significantly age your face, as well as be harmful to your health. If you have quit smoking, but are still paying for it with the deep lines smoking has caused around your mouth, you should consider these treatments; the best reward for quitting is to regain a more youthful appearance. During your consultation with your dermatologist, make sure you specify that you are interested in removing the effects of smoking, including forehead lines and the lines around your mouth. The dermatologist will provide you with information about which treatments are best suited for your particular needs.
