Dermal Fillers for Smoker's Lines
If you are looking for an alternative, consider a DEEP fractional resurfacing. When we are working on lines like these, we are often in the 800-1000 micron depth (1 mm) and have to use dental blocks and direct injection of lidocaine for the patient to be able to tolerate it. There is also about a week of recovery time. If the recovery time does not bother you then you may want to take a different direction on improving the lines and consider laser resurfacing.
I agree with what Dr. Weiss and Dr. Kaplan have recommended. For some reason, still not well-known to us, this type of wrinkling is very resistant to treatment. Therefore, I usually recommended filler + fractional laser resurfacing (sometimes more than 1 session of each) to target them aggressively. Although I know it may not be the answer you were looking for, there are still options to get you to your goal. All the best.
