Lip Injections and Vertical Lines
Filler or peel
Bepperboo, thanks for the question and great photos. Peri-oral lines can be very difficult to treat and there are two main approaches for dealing with them. The first is to have a filler like restylane silk or belotero used to inject the lip lines directly. This will soften them, but will need to be repeated i3-6 months. Another option for lip lines is to have a peel performed, either a TCA or phenol peel would improve the appearance of the lines on a more permanent basis. The down side of peels is that they usually have a 1-2 week down time associated with them. The peels may also produce hypopigmentation or lightening of the skin where the peel was performed. As always, make sure to see some one who is an expert in fillers and peels so that they are able to evaluate you in person. I hope this helps and best of luck in your area. ~Dr. Sieber
