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.
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.
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.
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.
