Treating Mouth Wrinkles from Smoking

smokers wrinkles

You may have heard that smoking causes unsightly lines to appear around your lips. Although wrapping your lips around a cigarette can cause these lip lines to appear, so can drinking through a straw or a sports bottle. The reason these actions bring about lip lines is, every time you pucker your lips, the muscles around them contract. Repetitive contracting of these muscles damages collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, aging can make the skin around your lips wrinkle too. You can break your smoking habit and never sip through a straw or drink from a sports bottle again to help prevent any more lines and wrinkles from appearing, but you will need some help getting rid of the lip lines and wrinkles you already have.

Youthful Reflections offers an amazing treatment for lip lines, and it’s called the Peri-Oral Rejuvenation Procedure. This procedure is designed to make lines and wrinkles around your mouth much less noticeable. Botox injections are given to lessen muscle strength and relax the area around the mouth. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the area, followed by microneedling of the skin, to restore volume and stimulate collagen deposition, new cell growth, and skin tightening.  What you see and experience after the treatment is improved skin texture, better skin tone, and long lasting results.  Results will differ from one person to the next.

As you enjoy the new smooth and young looking skin around your mouth, you should take steps to make the fantastic results you received from your Peri-Oral Treatment last as long as possible. One step you can take is to use an effective moisturizer on your skin every day. The daily application of a sunscreen is another step you can take. Exfoliating your skin will also help.
