As we get older, we will begin to see signs of aging on our face. Wrinkles may begin to form on the forehead, below the eyes, between the eyebrows and around the mouth. It is common for everyone to start getting wrinkles as they begin to age, but women are more prone to developing wrinkles around the mouth because of their skin structure. Wrinkles around the mouth, caused by aging, genetics, sun exposure and smoking are called perioral wrinkles.
Botox treatment can help undo visible facial aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and vertical lip lines.
Types of Wrinkles Around the Mouth
There are three types of wrinkles around the mouth:
- Smile lines – These are the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
- Marionette lines – Vertical lines found at the corners of the mouth, that gives a person a serious and angry look on their face.
- Vertical lip lines – Vertical lines that are formed from regular smoking, and waxing and threading of the upper lip.
Botox Injections for Wrinkles Around the Mouth
Mouth lines, wrinkles, and visible facial aging can be reduced with the help of Botox treatment.
The appearance of mouth lines can be reduced with the help of Botox by targeting small muscle groups in your face. Botox immobilizes the muscles temporarily which causes the skin folds to soften.
The process is quick and easy and takes approximately 10 minutes with minimal or brief discomfort. It takes about a week for people to see the results. The following treatment wears off after three to four months. Additional treatment can be given depending on doctor’s analysis and the patient’s response.
