Have you ever noticed how your top lip and the area around your nose form vertical lines? In their 40s and 50s, many women start to get vertical lines above their lips. Around your mouth, lines that were previously only visible when you pursed your lips may start to set in permanently.
This is a result of Perioral muscle being repeatedly used from talking frequently or even from smoking in the past. These lines were called “smoker’s lines” because they appeared earlier in smokers than nonsmokers. Furthermore, your skin becomes more prone to wrinkles as you age due to increased skin laxity and volume loss above the lip. UV ray damage, volume and collagen loss, and repetitive muscle use all contribute to the development of these wrinkles.
What causes smoking lines or lip lines?
Smoker lines are smooth, vertical lines engraved, extending from your lips to just below your nose. They are common on the upper lips. The fine lines around your mouth and lips are known as smoker lines and result from the constant pouting and pursing of your lips caused by cigarette smoking. Typically, smoking inhibits the production of collagen in the skin resulting in thinning skin and more prevalent wrinkles.
Lip lines can also be caused by repetitive clustering of the tissues around the lips and mouth from overactivity, lack of moisture, ageing, or drinking and eating excess dry foods. Other causes of lip lines include continuous smiling, talking, whistling, and other mouth movements that cause the vertical ridges to become more defined and prominent.
Other contributing factors include:
- Drinking from a bottle or straw
- Sun exposure
- Repeated facial expressions like pursuing the lips
- Playing musical instruments that need playing with your mouth
- Lifestyle factors
- Loss of subcutaneous fat as you age
What is the best treatment for smokers lines?
This is primarily determined by your lip condition and desired outcomes. During your initial consultation, your general health and expectations will be assessed in order to determine the best course of action for your specific needs. Anti-wrinkle injections are the most commonly used treatment for upper lip wrinkles and vertical lip lines because they are less invasive and have no downtime.
Anti-wrinkle treatment is a type of neuromodulator used in this procedure to relax the small muscles in your face by inhibiting signal transmission in the affected area. Muscles cannot contract in the absence of signals and will begin to relax. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is significantly reduced.
Anti-wrinkle injections can help reduce the appearance of smoker’s lines by relaxing the muscle in your upper lip. Anti-wrinkle injections can also prevent new wrinkles from forming and slow the progression of existing wrinkles.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections FAQs
How are smoker lines treated?
Anti-wrinkle injection therapies remove wrinkles from any area, such as smoke/lip lines, by introducing a muscle relaxant product into the active facial muscles. When the product is administered to your muscle, it relaxes the facial muscles and inhibits contraction, thus preventing the skin from drawing together to form a crease.
Who is the ideal candidate for this treatment?
The ideal candidate is anyone who needs anti-wrinkle treatment. If you are concerned about your face appearing tired and sagged due to smoker lines around the mouth, we encourage you to contact us and discuss your specific concerns.
We can provide the best anti-wrinkle treatments to rejuvenate your facial aesthetics and improve your natural appearance. Our services are suitable for all skin and ages.
Can I combine anti-aging treatments?
Yes, you can combine anti-wrinkle injections with other treatments such as frown lines (lines between the brows), bunny lines, lip flips, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Face slimming (masseter reduction), brow lift, and anti-sweat treatment are advantages of anti-wrinkle procedures (hyperhidrosis). Dermal filler procedures such as lip filler, jawline filler, and cheek filler are available at Eden Cosmetic Therapies.
How much anti-wrinkle do I need for smoker lines?
Typically, the amount of product you need for anti-wrinkle injections varies from case to case. We will ask you a few questions, including the specific area of concern. Your cosmetic nurse will determine the appropriate amount needed to suit your goals. However, the average quantity given is between 10-25 units.
Will the injections hurt?
Anti-wrinkle injections use fine needles that most patients are comfortable with since they do not find painful. Clients have described the feeling as a quick sting. Our experts can apply topical numbing if you prefer a pain-free experience.
Will I see the results immediately?
The results from anti-wrinkle shots are visible after about one week from the Anti-wrinkle treatment time. The maximum can take you to see the effect is about 14 days.
How long does anti-wrinkle last?
The results from anti-wrinkle treatment are visible from one week to about 14 days. You can expect the result to last for about three to four months, after which you are able to return and have additional treatments to continue to reduce wrinkles.
What are dynamic wrinkles lines?
Lines that form as a result of repeated facial muscle movement are known as dynamic wrinkles. Outdoor workers frequently squint or frown and frequently develop crinkles around their eyes or frown lines between their brows. In other cases, there is a genetic predisposition to excessive frowning or smiling, resulting in familial lines and wrinkles. All dynamic lines are treated with Anti-Wrinkle Injections, which relax the overactive muscles. This smoothes the skin that lies on top of the muscle, giving it a softer, more youthful appearance.
What are static wrinkle lines?
When the skin’s supporting holding structures (collagen and elastin fibres) can no longer support the tissue, static wrinkles form, causing lines to form. These flaws can progress into deeper creases or folds as the skin loses elasticity.
Static lines appear to be a natural part of facial ageing; however, some people experience premature facial ageing if their collagen stores are depleted due to smoking, sun baking, menopause, illnesses, or stress. Another type of static line that appears as we age is sleep lines and creases. Dermal fillers are commonly used to treat static lines and wrinkles by lifting, filling, hydrating, and restoring collagen.
Will I bruise from Anti-wrinkle treatment?
Bruising can occur as a result of any injection-based treatment. We take every precaution to avoid bruising; however, as discussed during the consultation, the risks of bruising can be reduced. It is important to note that blood-thinning medications and supplements such as ibuprofen, fish oil, aspirin, and others are not advised. Please inform your cosmetic nurse of any medicines you take before your Anti-wrinkle treatment. However, do not stop taking the medication without consulting your doctor.
