Treating upper lip wrinkles

Upper lip wrinkles can be treated effectively using two methods: Botox and fillers. The treatment that suits you best will depend on how deep your wrinkles are. In your first consultation at Kliniek Dr Frodo, we will thoroughly analyse your face to find the right treatment for you.

Causes of upper lip wrinkles

The most common cause of upper lip wrinkles is age and volume loss. As the years go by, the levels of collagen in the skin decreases, but your teeth also shrink and your skin loses volume. As collagen levels drop, your skin turns flabby and upper lip wrinkles become more noticeable . People with very expressive faces who move their mouths a lot are more likely to develop wrinkles in these areas.

Smoking lines

Another key cause is smoking. Accelerated skin ageing causes smokers’ lines around the upper lip. Smoking narrows the blood vessels in the skin. The limited blood flow paired with repetitive lip pursing increases the chance of developing smokers’ lines.

Botox treatment

Botox is a proven way to help you get rid of wrinkles. Botox is a brand name for the protein botulinum toxin . Injecting this protein around the wrinkles blocks the impulse transmission from nerve to muscle. That makes the transmission less powerful and makes the muscles relax.
After about 3 to 4 months, the impulses transmission will recover. You should come back regularly to maintain the best results. You will see the results of Botox treatment after approximately one week. Injecting Botox will help you look better again, naturally.

Filler treatment

Fillers are another treatment option. With fillers, hyaluronic acid is injected into your skin. It is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps your skin to be flexible and resilient. We produce less of it as we age, which causes our skin elasticity to drop.
The fillers replace the hyaluronic acid and form cushions in the skin that fill in imperfections. Filler treatment results will be visible for 6 to 18 months, and after that, the fillers will break down naturally in the body.

The risks of upper lip treatments

The risks of upper lip treatments

Both Botox and fillers are very safe. At Kliniek Dr Frodo, we have extensive experience with these treatment methods. Your safety is the focus of all of our treatments. Botox is one of the most widely used cosmetic surgery treatments and has very few side effects. A heavy feeling may occur in rare cases, which will clear up on its own. Slight redness or swelling may occur after treatment, but it will disappear after 10 minutes.

Fillers are also very low risk. After all, the substance occurs naturally in the body, so the risk of allergic reaction is virtually nonexistent. Slight reactions may occasionally occur after treatment. They are hardly noticeable and will resolve quickly after treatment.
