Upper lip wrinkles

What causes upper lip wrinkles to appear?

The most common cause of upper lip wrinkles are age and volume loss. The passage of time causes a decrease in the amount of collagen in the skin, your teeth become smaller, and the subcutaneous volume decreases. Upper lip wrinkles will appear.

The reduction in collagen causes your skin to weaken and allows upper lip wrinkles to stand out. With people with a very expressive face who move their mouths a lot, there is an even greater chance that wrinkles on upper lip or wrinkles above upper lip will occur. Another important cause of upper lip wrinkles is smoking. With smokers the upper lip wrinkles are caused by accelerated aging of the skin. This is because smoking constricts the blood vessels in the skin. The deteriorated blood flow combined with the repetitive puckering of the mouth increase the chance that wrinkles on upper lip or wrinkles above upper lip will occur.

How to get rid of upper lip wrinkles?

The best treatment for upper lip wrinkles

Upper lip wrinkles can be effectively treated using two methods: Botox and/or fillers. It depends on the depth of your upper lip wrinkles which treatment’s the best treatment for your wrinkles. During the initial consultation at Kliniek Dokter Frodo, we perform a thorough analysis of your face. Based on this, we will choose the treatment for upper lip wrinkles that will best suits you.

Treatment for upper lip wrinkles with Botox

Botox is a trusted way of getting rid of wrinkles. Botox is a brand name for the protein botulinum toxin. After injecting this protein near the upper lip wrinkles, the transmission of nerve stimuli to the muscle is blocked. This makes the transmission less powerful and allows the muscles to relax.

After approximately 3 to 4 months, the stimuli transmission restores itself again. To preserve the positive results, you need to return regularly. The result of a Botox treatment is visible after about a week. By injecting Botox, you look better in a natural way. It’s one of the best treatments to get rid of upper lip wrinkles.

Treatment for upper lip wrinkles with fillers

Another treatment for upper lip wrinkles is the use of fillers. When using fillers, hyaluronic acid is injected into your skin. This is a substance which occurs naturally in the body. It is responsible for the flexibility and resilience of your skin. During the aging process, the production of this substance decreases, which results in a decrease in skin elasticity. And a decrease in skin elasticity will results in (upper lip) wrinkles.

The fillers replace the hyaluronic acid and form pads in the skin which fill up the upper lip wrinkles. The result of the filler treatment for upper lip wrinkles remains visible for 6 to 18 months. After that the filler will be broken down by the body.

Results may vary based on a variety of factors, to ensure suitability you must attend a consultation. All our consultations are of charge.
