Chin wrinkles and smokers lines
We lose tissue and bone so the skin collapses in on itself and wrinkles are the result.
A smoker can speed up that process simply from the mechanics of pursing the lips - the same can happen from the way you move your lips when talking.
Outside of fillers, in some instances, a little touch (little is key here) can relax the muscle and minimize the movements that make the wrinkles more obvious.
Chin wrinkles can be volume loss or they can be from muscle contraction. With contraction issues you can improve the situation with Botox. Pebbly like skin is usually related to muscle. The horizontal crease that sometimes is thought as a wrinkle is the labiomental crease and this too can be improved with relaxers and/or filler.
What filler is good for smokers lines?
Belotero or Restylane Silk, both hyaluronic acid fillers, may be ideal for your situation, especially around the mouth. However, if you have deeper lines, you may benefit more from laser resurfacing. Just be sure to choose a board certified plastic surgeon or board certified dermatologist with expertise and experience in these procedures.
Belotero takes care of smokers lines very easily.
