One of the most common questions we receive from patients is, “How can I get rid of these smoker’s lines?” (also known as lipstick lines). These are vertical creases that surround the upper lip.

The motion of puckering when smoking a cigarette causes these unsightly indentations. Since lipstick can sometimes run into them, which is where the term “lipstick lines” originates.

The causes of these lines are not completely due to smoking. They are often caused by age, genetics, and especially from repetitive movements of the area. Please note, however, that smoking does cause wrinkles in the skin due to the effects of the chemicals in cigarettes.

Prevention is the easiest way to deal with these lines. Using sunscreen regularly, not smoking, and avoiding drinking from straws can help.

Even with prevention, the wrinkles can still appear. If they do, Restylane® Silk can help.

About Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk is an effective wrinkle filler. The substance fills in lines and deep wrinkles around the mouth, and also plumps the lips for beautiful fullness.

In clinical studies, patients report its effectiveness in diminishing lines and boosting lip volume. Ninety-eight percent of patients treated said they noticed significant improvement in 14 days after injection. Fifty nine percent of patients report they continued to see results six months later!

Restylane Silk is FDA approved and is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural found sugar in the body. As we age, that natural sugar diminishes, and that’s one of the reasons why fine lines occur. HA restores that natural sugar to minimize the appearance of lines, including pesky “smoker’s lines.”

Treatment takes only 30 minutes. It can be easily scheduled into an hour long lunchbreak, especially since there is no downtime. There may be some redness at the injection site, but effects subside quickly for most patients. It may be wise to schedule the first session with enough time afterwards to experience the effects and know if you can return to a job or social event immediately following injection.

Since the effects of Restylane Silk can appear unnatural if not done correctly, it’s important to choose a experienced, licensed practitioner such as James Christian Sardelli, RPA-C.
