What Happens To Your Skin When You Quit Smoking?

If you have quit smoking, or are on a journey to quitting smoking, then you are doing something amazing for your body! Stopping smoking lowers your risk of various cancers, as well as the risk of diabetes, whilst helping your blood vessels to work better and helping your heart and lungs. But what happens to your skin when you quit smoking? Read on to learn more.

What Happens To Your Skin When You Stop Smoking? Let Us Explain!

Over time, tobacco use can leave your dermis damaged, as tobacco ruins collagen and elastin fibres, the building blocks of healthy, youthful-looking skin. When these fibres become damaged, your skin can become hardened and less able to bounce back into place, leading to deeper wrinkles and premature ageing. You may notice this in particular around the mouth (also known as ‘smoker’s lines’). Remember, your skin is the largest organ in your body. It needs looking after just as much as any other!

At North West Aesthetics, we offer a range of treatments designed to help to transform your appearance after you quit smoking.

Dermal Fillers

We know exactly what happens to your skin when you quit smoking, which means we know exactly how to help. Our knowledgeable and professional team will recommend what is best for you and this could be dermal fillers. Specifically designed to correct smoker’s lines, dermal fillers are a non-surgical, injectable treatment that can be tailored to suit your specific needs and offer anti-ageing benefits. Our experts at North West Aesthetics will insert these fillers just beneath the skin and gently massage them in place. Unsightly smoker’s lights will soon be a thing of the past!
