As the delicate skin around your mouth and nose ages, it often begins to develop fine lines and creases. While many ladies in particular find this unsightly, these nose-to-mouth-lines can be made to look even worse when lipstick bleeds into them.
A simple routine of applying lotion, moisturiser and foundation can make your lips appear smoother and wrinkle-free. But sometimes skincare routines alone just aren't enough. This is where professional skin clinic treatments can help.
Treatments for Nose-To-Mouth lines
A clinical solution for nose-to-mouth-lines, and even neck lines, is “cosmetic wrinkle fillers”. Cosmetic fillers are injected into the skin to plump up nose-to-mouth and neck lines. They can be used in virtually any area that has lost volume and elasticity.
Cosmetic fillers are also known as “anti-wrinkle injections” and are a safe and effective treatment to reduce facial and neck lines and wrinkles. Lines usually begin to appear after the age of 25 unless you have looked after your skin. Nose-to-mouth lines are caused by the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres as skin ages. This breakdown is accelerated by factors such as smoking, sun damage, stress and poor diet.
Cosmetic fillers have become one of the most popular anti-wrinkle treatments available because they result in an instant and natural look with few or only minor side effects. Popular areas to treat are the nose-to-mouth lines, lips, around the mouth, neck lines, and cheeks and between the eyebrows.
