After Browsing Info Still Not Sure What to Do About Deep Lines Around Lips

Deep lines

You could try Restylane but, it is quite similar to Juvederm. If the lines are deep enough Radiesse mat be a better choice. Have you considered C02 laser resurfacing?

Treating aging lips

Without photos or a physical examination it is impossible to know exactly what is going on. I assume you are refering to aging lines of the lips. These line extend in a radial fashion out from the lipstick wearing portion of the lips. The tend to be more prominent in the upper lip and in the lips of smokers. I have not been happy with injectable fillers in this setting and prefer CO2 laser with subcision but have also had good results with dermabrasion.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.

Lip lines

These lines that radiate around the mouth are called perioral lines. Optimal treatment in this area is individualized and depends on their depth, if they are there at rest,; if you are a smoker, etc.  In some cases a combination of procedures is warranted:  resurfacing the lines, using a filler to shape and contour the lip itself and even botox to inhibit some lip motion.  You will need to see an expert .

Deep lines around the mouth do well with dermabrasion and implant when fillers don't last.

Upper lip deep lines can be dermabraded to smooth the skin out and the vermillion border can be made more ridged with a thin lip implant to permanently fix the problem all under local anesthesia.  Sincerely,

Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results, may be used to diminish the appearance of upper lip wrinkles.

Vertical lines in your upper lip may be improved by a carefully performed Injectable Filler treatment. There needs to be a minute amount of product injected directly into the wrinkle, not deep to it. I have had good success softening these wrinkles with Silikon-1000 for permanent results.

I hope this is helpful for you.
