While the eyes are the windows to the soul, the mouth is often seen as the door, allowing your ‘soul’ to be seen through the language and ideas you communicate. The lips are also one of the most expressive areas of the face, with countless articles, blogs, and books written about the study of body language, and how certain actions with the lips can indicate thoughts and feelings. These expressions are vital to us, influencing our understanding of verbal communication, but they can also cause damage over time. At PHI, we predominantly use dermal fillers to treat wrinkles around mouth.
Treat Wrinkles Around Mouth - Smoker's Lines
Vertical lip lines are often called ‘smoker’s lines’, despite affecting the majority of people, smoker or not. Caused or worsened by a range of factors, like diet, UV exposure, and repetitive facial expressions, these lip lines can cause a huge amount of self-consciousness, and alter the look of the face dramatically.
At PHI Clinic, we use dermal fillers to correct this indication with a lip enhancement or augmentation. The Juvederm Vycross range of dermal fillers, by Allergan, have a lip-specific product – Juvederm Volbella. Volbella has a smoother formula in order to create natural, subtle results perfect for an area with so much movement. The hyaluronic acid in these fillers can hold up to 1000x their own weight in water, and act as a volumising and cushioning agent for a fuller look to the lip. Lasting up to 12 months, results are noticeable immediately after treatment, but continue to improve for around 3 weeks to create a balanced look. While one session will deliver results, many people choose to use dermal fillers as an ongoing treatment in order to maintain the effects.
