How Can I Treat a Horizontal Line over my Upper Lip?

 Best, IMHO, is careful and conservative use of a neurotoxin like Botox, Dysport and Xeomon. I have used neurotoxins to reduce unwanted lines and wrinkles around the mouth for over 20 years.

Correcting lip lines

Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm or Restylane are the best options for correcting lip lines. A photo would be quite helpful in assessing your lips. You can follow the video link below to see me injecting my wife’s lips with Restylane!

Correction of Horizontal Upper Lip Line

It would be a lot easier to answer this after having done an evaluation, or at least with a picture, but most horizontal upper lip lines can be improved with injectable fillers. Occasionally neurotoxins and/or chemical peeling can aid in treating these types of lines as well. I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon for best outcome. The link shows you a before and after of a woman who had her upper lip lines corrected with a combination of injectable silicone (filler), light electrosurgery and laser resurfacing.
