Lip wrinkles, which are sometimes called lip lines, lipstick lines, or smoker’s lines, are the little vertical lines that form on the lips of older adults. These lines are notoriously difficult to conceal. Getting rid of your lip lines, rather than trying to cover them up, can easily take 10 years off your face.


After age 20, you produce about 1% less collagen every year. As collagen production decreases, the skin becomes thinner and less elastic. The lips, which are typically puffy during youth, become noticeably deflated as you age.

Aging skin also produces less oil and is prone to dryness due to their constant exposure to the sun. This is called photoaging.

Lip wrinkles on the upper lip are often caused by smoking. Smoking produces free radicals in the body, which contribute to premature aging. Lip wrinkles may also be contributed to pursing of the lips associated with drinking through a straw or repetitive facial expressions.

How to improve and reduce the look of lip lines?

There are some treatment options available such as:

  • Anti-wrinkle injections, muscle relaxant, need to be topped up every three to four months.
  • Laser resurfacing is a great treatment option. It requires one to two weeks downtime depending on the severity of the settings used.
  • Plasma Fibroblast is another great treatment option which stimulates collagen, shrinks and tightens skin with one week downtime.
  • Ultrasound (HIFU) which is also an effective way for collagen stimulation and skin tightening with no downtime.
  • Skin needling a collagen induction treatment with no down time. Fast and effective.
