Smokers lines, also called lip lines, lipstick lines and barcode lines, are those pesky lip wrinkles that appear around your mouth when you smile or laugh. They’re most common in people who smoke, but can also be caused by sun damage, dehydration, and ageing. If you’re looking for ways to minimally reduce or get rid of smokers lines, there are a few options available to you.

Different Ways To Get Rid Of Smokers Fine Vertical Lines

There are a number of facial treatments that can help to plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles, such as cosmetic injectables and laser resurfacing. However, there are also a few things you can do at home.

Different Ways To Get Rid Of Smokers Fine Vertical Lines  - Jade Cosmetic Clinic

There are many different ways to treat upper lip lines, both at home and professionally.

Anti-wrinkle injections

If you want to smooth out deep lines without having surgery, you may want to consider anti-wrinkle injections. They are a safe and effective way to temporarily reduce the appearance of upper lip wrinkles. They work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, so they can’t contract as much. The results typically last for 3 to 6 months.

Dermal fillers

If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution to get rid of smokers lines, you may want to consider dermal fillers. These are injected into the skin to help plump it up and smooth out wrinkles. They are made from hyaluronic acid (a substance found naturally in our body) and results can last for 6 to 18 months.

Cosmetic injectables can help rid you of smokers lines and give you younger-looking skin.

Laser resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is another option for getting rid of smokers facial lines. This treatment uses a laser to remove the top layer of skin, which helps to smooth out wrinkles and can be done in a doctor’s office or at a laser centre. Results usually last for around several months.

Surgical option

If you’re looking for a more extreme solution to get rid of smokers lines, you may want to consider surgery. This can be an effective way to remove deep wrinkles, but it’s also expensive and carries a risk of side effects. If you’re considering surgery, be sure to talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate whether you’re a good candidate.

At home treatments

If you don’t want to shell out for a professional treatment, you can do several things at home to help get rid of smokers lines:

  • Good quality sunscreen – use daily to protect your skin from further sun damage, which can make wrinkles worse.
  • Drink plenty of water – to keep your skin hydrated.
  • Topical retinoid cream – can help to stimulate collagen production (essential skin proteins that keep our skin supple and hydrated) and improve the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Hyaluronic acid serum – a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to keep the skin hydrated. Applying the serum to the skin can help to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. You can find them at most drugstores or online.
  • Low-energy laser treatments – use low-energy lasers to stimulate collagen production and help to plump up the skin. There are several home-use laser devices on the market, so it’s important to do your research before you purchase one. Look for a device that has been cleared by the FDA and has been shown to be effective in clinical studies.
