When most people think of fine lines, they think of anti-wrinkle treatments, which take around two weeks to settle into the targeted muscles. Anti-wrinkle treatments target areas where muscles move, such as forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and upper lip lines.
Are you noticing small wrinkles around your mouth when you look in the mirror? If so, you’re not alone! The upper lip has thin, delicate skin subject to constant movement throughout the day, making lip lines an ultra-common cosmetic concern.
Lip lines are fine lines that surround the mouth as we age and are exacerbated by lifestyle factors such as smoking. While these lines typically appear after age fifty, they can become visible as early as your mid-twenties.
The mouth is one of the first spots to start showing signs of aging, but we often neglect it. Luckily, you can change your ways to counteract lip lines at any age!
There are many fine-line treatment options depending on where and how they form.
Anti-wrinkle injections are the go-to treatment for fine lines caused by muscle movement, which causes static lines to settle into the face. The injections are safe and effective with no downtime, so it’s no surprise they are one of the world’s most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.
At Peninsula Aesthetics, we offer anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers, also called Hyaluronic Acid Fillers.
Natural fillers such as Hyaluronic Acid replace the structural volume lost in the face as we age and help create a more youthful, refreshed visage. Depending on the type of filler used, treatments can also lift and hydrate the skin, with the effect lasting between 6 months and two years.
The same can be said for nasolabial folds (the lines that run down from your nose to the edges of your lips and then your chin as you age. Again, the best treatment is hyaluronic acid filler, as it removes the lines naturally and plumps the entire area for a more youthful look.
So, What Do We Know About HA (Hyaluronic Acid), And Is It Safe?
Hyaluronic filler, previously known as dermal filler, is a gel that is injected into areas of the face. HA filler is made up of a complex sugar that is naturally produced in the human body. HA fillers help to hydrate, add volume to the skin and the underlying soft tissue just below the surface. HA Fillers can be injected into different parts of your face including around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, lips, jawline, and temple.
How Do HA Fillers Work?
Within our bodies, we naturally produce collagen and elastin, this is what gives us our plump, youthful appearance, but as we age, we stop producing as much, our skin doesn’t bounce back like it used to, our cheeks aren’t as full.
More commonly now, HA filler is used to enhance certain features such as jawline, lips and cheeks. As generations become more subjected to treatments and it becomes more and more normal, we find that the younger people have started getting treatments done earlier in life, as opposed to trying to turn back the hands of time as they get older.
Nurse Alysha from Peninsula Aesthetics will always advise you and what treatments you require. With great advice and knowledge achieving a much more youthful look has never been easier.
