Why choose upper lip line treatment?
Lines on the top lip detract from the face’s second most important feature, the mouth. If you feel these lines are knocking your confidence, this is the treatment for you. It’s long lasting, safe and easily reversible.
Over time we may start to see small lines coming out from the borders of the lips (particularly the upper lips). Often they extend vertically from the lips and are sometimes called smokers’ lines or lipstick lines.
Despite common thinking about smoking being the main factor, these lines are also the result of volume loss that comes with age but also due to repetitive pursing of the lips and creasing of the tissue due to intense muscular activity. That said, smoking is likely to be a major contributory cause due to the toxins in cigarettes damaging the skin and regular pursing of the lips. Consequently, the lines that form may cause your lipstick to bleed hence the name lipstick lines.
Unfortunately, early onset of lines around the mouth and volume loss in the border of the lips (known as the vermillion border) can often may us look much older than we really are as our eyes are instinctively drawn to the mouth area. Fortunately, the treatments available from the SkinViva doctors and dentists can deliver an impressive reduction in these signs of ageing.

How does upper lip line treatment work?
Long lasting results with dermal fillers...
During your consultation, your SkinViva doctor or dentist will assess your face to understand the causes, type and extent of your upper lip lines in order to decide what treatment will work best. Often treated with advanced dermal fillers – such as Juvederm. Each treatment is tailored precisely to your needs and your unique features. Our doctors and dentists always work to make our treatments fit in with the correct natural proportions, and it’s nowhere more important than the lips.
Your doctor or dentist will consult you on your choice of treatment but will recommend either a treatment or a combination of approaches to get the best results. The strength of your mouth muscles and how deep your upper lip lines are will have a bearing on the best treatment choice for you.
For deeper lines, a soft, light dermal filler is carefully placed to preserve natural definition and shape, while also softening lines, for a natural looking result. In addition, adding subtle volume to the lips will further benefit the upper lip lines by gently plumping out the lines and elongating the lip which has contracted over time.

Got a Question?
Immediately on top of that is the dermis, which contains collagen and elastin – two key attributes to a youthful appearance. Constantly renewed in the young, production of these slow dramatically with age.
The epidermis, or top layer, is the home of crucial cell renewal. In young skin, cells are replaced every 15-30 days, but this slows to every 60 days in later adulthood.
Dermal filler replaces lost volume and treats static facial lines by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid content of the skin.
This is when the neuromuscular junction – where the nerve and muscle meet – has its receptors blocked from acetylcholine: the chemical which forces the muscle to contract.
Therefore, even though the nerve continues to send a signal which requests movement, the tissue does not receive the instruction and the muscle remains still.
Over 3-5 months, the muscle gradually grows new receptors and is able to contract again.
BOTOX® is most effective in the correction of lines which are formed from muscle contractions alone. Because the underlying muscle doesn’t move, the skin above it no longer creases.
Thus, the effects of BOTOX® are most noticeable in frown and laughter lines.
BOTOX® does not remove wrinkles which are permanently engraved in the skin, regardless of muscle movement, although it may soften them.
With SkinViva, we contact you one week after your BOTOX® treatment to determine if you require a free top-up injection. If necessary, this is administered around 14 days after the original treatment.
If you prefer, ice or local anaesthetic cream can be applied to minimise sensation.
