Uneven lip lines are a series of thin vertical lines that run very sharply between the lip and adjacent to the normal skin. Also referred to as ‘Lipstick lines’, this is how they are first noticed as it gives the appearance of lipstick bleeds into the fine lines. These lines are formed due to contraction of perioral musculature and occur naturally as we age and our lips start to lose their volume. Upper lip lines are a common complaint but with the use of Botulinum toxin they can be improved. This treatment also increases lip eversion resulting in a fuller lip appearance.
The effect of treatment lasts for 2 months. A repeat treatment will be required when the function of the muscle responsible for this begin to contract, prior to lines returning to their pre-treatment expression.
In some cases our specialist aesthetic doctor may suggest that you have dermal fillers, this will plump up your lips too. A combination of Botulinum toxin and the dermal filler is also a possible technique that is carried out.
You will have a consultation with our specialist aesthetic doctor and discuss your desired outcome. Following this, he/she will decide precisely where the injections will be inserted to create the best results.
