Hiding the Signs of Smoking

Cosmetic Treatments for Smoker’s Lines

Smoking is highly addictive and if you smoke you certainly are not alone, millions do.

However, quite apart from the health risks, did you know that smoking actually makes you look older too?

Smokers’ can expect their skin to look less youthful as a direct consequence of their habit:

  • fine lines appear at an earlier age
  • deeper wrinkles around the eyes
  • lines appear on and around the mouth, known as ‘smokers’ lines’
  • the skin develops a grey palour
  • the jowls start to sag earlier

It’s enough to put many people off altogether and without a doubt, one of the best things you can do for your skin is to stop smoking. If you can’t stop, cut down – every cigarette less is better for your health and your skin.

Even celebrity smoker Simon Cowell has announced he is quitting the habit in a bid to live longer and look younger.

Simon Cowell has also famously enjoyed cosmetic treatments to look younger, including botox.

Premature Ageing Skin

When skin looks older than it really is and lines start to appear, there are treatments that can help to rejuvenate the skin. Popular options include:

  • Botox – injections to relax the lines and wrinkles
  • Fillers – smokers develop particularly deep lines between the nose and mouth which can be smoothed over with dermal fillers
  • Lip enhancement – replenishing lost volume in and around the lips evens out the unsightly smokers’ lines
