Smokers’ Lines (Lip Lines)

Condition Overview

Why Do I Have Lip Lines?

Smokers’ lines, also known as lip lines, lipstick lines or perioral wrinkles, are fine lines and creases that develop around the mouth, particularly on the upper lip. These lines are associated with the habitual act of smoking but can also occur due to natural ageing and other environmental factors.

The primary cause of smokers’ lines is the repetitive puckering and pursing of the lips through facial expressions and communication, or while inhaling and exhaling cigarette smoke.

How Does Ageing Contribute To Lip Lines?

Intrinsic ageing processes play a role in the formation of lip lines. As individuals age, the skin naturally loses collagen and experiences a decrease in skin elasticity, making it more susceptible to the effects of facial expressions and environmental factors. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that provide skin with elasticity and structure. As these proteins diminish, the skin around the mouth becomes more prone to developing fine lines and wrinkles. This process combines with constant movement of the mouth and lips (as well as heat and chemicals from cigarette smoke) contributing further to the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin.

What Is The Aesthetic Impact Of Lip Lines?

Smokers’ lines (lip lines) affect the appearance by creating visible vertical lines on and around the lips, often giving the impression of premature ageing. These lines can be particularly noticeable due to the repetitive muscle movements associated with smoking and other lip motions becoming ingrained in the skin. In addition to their aesthetic impact, smokers’ lines can contribute to a worn or tired appearance, affecting overall facial aesthetics.

How Will Novo Skin Clinics Treat Lip Lines?

Addressing smokers’ lines (lip lines) involves a combination of preventive measures and cosmetic interventions. Quitting smoking is a crucial step in preventing further damage, while topical treatments, anti-wrinkle injections, lip fillers, polynucleotides and skin boosters are common interventions to reduce the appearance of existing lip lines.

At NOVO our experienced practitioners help patients to understand the causes of this concern. Our aim is to work with patients to explore both lifestyle changes and cosmetic solutions for individuals looking to minimise the effects of smokers’ lines (lip lines) and achieve a more youthful and smoother lip contour.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
