Smoker's Lines

What are Smokers' Lines?

Smokers' lines are commonly known as the 'barcode', a series of thin vertical lines that run perpendicular to the vermilion border (the normally sharp demarcation between the lip and your adjacent normal skin). These lines occur naturally as we age and the lips start to lose their volume. They are often first noticed as lipstick 'bleeds' into these lines.


Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) injections for Smokers' Lines

Smokers' lines can be successfully treated by Botox® injections, filling these lines with a dermal filler and/or enhancing the vermilion border. Often a combination of these techniques is employed.

Botox@ injections are a safe, approved and non-surgical solution to many of the wrinkles and facial changes commonly associated with ageing, including smokers' lines. Botox® is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be seen for a couple of weeks after a treatment, the effects of Botox® typically last for about three to four months. Botox® injections are quick and convenient to administer and Bellissima offers some of the most competitive Botox® prices.

It is wise to bear in mind the possible side effect that can occur with this treatment using Botulinum toxin. Although it is very rare, as Botox® weakens the muscles that cause lip pursing, it might be difficult to drink from a straw and some people occasionally experience difficulty pronouncing the letters P and B.
