Vertical Lip Lines
Do you see tiny vertical lip lines above your top lip and around your mouth? These fine lines that run from the lips to just beneath the nose and around the mouth may be thin and shallow, but they add many years to the face. They also cause lips to appear thinner, robbing them of a youthful look. Where did these lip lines come from and how do we get rid of them?
What Causes Vertical Lip Lines?
While many of us are genetically predisposed to vertical lip lines, many patients develop these lines due to daily habits like smoking or frequent use of straws. If you don’t yet see vertical lip lines or you want to slow their progression, we recommend adjusting your habits to avoid excess puckering.
