Anti-Wrinkle Solutions – Smoker’s Lines (Vertical Lip Lines)

Also commonly known as “lipstick lines” or “pucker lines,” smoker’s lines are fine wrinkles on the lips that tend to affect the upper lip more predominantly, radiating out from the border of the lip. Although they are usually referred to as “smoker’s lines”, anyone can develop them whether they smoke or otherwise, although smoking does tend to worsen the situation. A loss of volume in the lips as a result of ageing, as well as repetitive muscular activity and other contributing factors affect the severity of these lines.

Anti-wrinkle treatments have been found to be an effective option, minimising the appearances of the smoker’s lines by blocking nerve signals to the orbicularis oris muscle in the lips while still allowing for facial movement.

Sometimes, if your smoker’s lines are quite deep, treatment with dermal fillers is a great option, in order to achieve optimum results.

Frequently asked questions

The expert, doctor-led team at North West Aesthetics take the time to understand your needs and expectations before formulating an effective treatment plan specifically for you. While you can be sure that our prices are both reasonable and competitive, it is hard to give you a firm figure before you first undertake our free consultation process. With that said, we find that most treatments of this type cost around £129.00 to £199.00 on average.

The personalised nature of your treatment plan should allow for optimum results as soon as 14 days post-treatment that tend to last around 3-4 months for most patients. This is a temporary treatment, so repeat treatments will need to be scheduled to maintain your results.

Anaesthetic is available to minimise the discomfort involved with anti-wrinkle injections, although this will add 30 minutes to your treatment time. This treatment only takes 5 minutes, but we ask for a 30 minute appointment to be booked to ensure you feel as comfortable as possible, and we complete all the necessary consent and paperwork.

There is no downtime or recovery associated with anti-wrinkle solutions, allowing you to return to your day-to-day routine immediately post-treatment.

You can easily cover any bruising, swelling and redness using makeup. These side effects are very minimal and only last up to 48 hours.

The outcome of this type of treatment is a natural, subtle rejuvenation that temporarily reduces the appearance of your dynamic fine lines and wrinkles. This is not suitable for any patients looking for a more long-term solution with more unnatural results.

At North West Aesthetics, our friendly and attentive team prioritise your wants and needs, offering bespoke treatment plans that work specifically for you. We take the time to get to the bottom of your concerns via a thorough consultation, before then considering the best possible course of action. A high standard of treatment and care is imperative, which is why our staff are extensively trained and experienced in all aspects of advanced non-surgical aesthetics, led by renowned medical doctor, Dr David Taylor.

“I was very anxious after having Botox treatments at other places in the past. I was recommended to use Dr David Taylor at North West Aesthetics, and so far I am amazed! David is great and very understanding of my needs. The results are just as I wanted, I will be using David for all my treatments in future!”

“I was nervous about trying fillers but Dr David put me at ease right away. The whole team are so friendly and welcoming. Before my treatment David went through a pre treatment medical assessment, which made me feel safe and secure as I have seen some horror stories before! I had Botox and Lip Fillers and I love them. I get so many compliments on how natural looking my lips are and how my complexion is glowing – for the first time in my life people are saying “you have such amazing clear skin!”…”
