What are Lip Creases (Smoker Lines) ?

These are unsightly vertical lines on top of the upper lip.
These occur with,

  • Age
  • Smoking
  • Can be inherited.

How long will lip crease treatment take?

It usually takes 20 - 30 minutes

Why are Lip Creases treated ?

By softening the lines,

  • Lipstick bleed is prevented.
  • The area around the mouth is enhanced to a more youthful look.

We recommend any of the following fillers for lip crease correction.

  • Restylane range
  • Juvederm Ultra 2
  • Teosyal Fine Lines

It is important that the filler for this area is fine and very smooth so that a smooth canvas is obtained and unsightly lumpiness above the upper lip is avoided.
The specific filler used will be discussed at your free initial consultation with Dr Bassi.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We attempt to make the treatment experience as pain free as possible.
  • A topical anesthetic ( Emla Cream ) is applied to the area 20 minutes before treatment. This numbs the skin and prepares the area for treatment.
  • All our fillers contain lignocaine anesthetic and this further reduces the discomfort factor.
  • Over 2 million dermal filler treatments were given in 2014. The number is expected to rise further.
  • The dermal fillers we use are non animal based and are made up of Hylauronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body.
  • They are extremely safe with very rare reports of allergic reactions.
Redness, burning and swelling at the injection site, lumpiness is usually temporary.
You will get a little swelling following treatment and maybe some bruising. The swelling will have resolved within a day or two but any minor bruising can be covered with make-up.

What Our Patients Say....Reviews

J.K .. Nottingham

Looking in the mirror all i could focus on was the lines around my lips, having these erased has made me enjoy putting on my lipstick once again.

F.F... Derby

My lip creases have always annoyed me, i have never smoked and i am in my early forties. The Lip Clinic at Selston has sorted these out and given me back to my confidence.

K.S ... Mansfield.

My budget was limited so i eventually chose to have my 'fag lines' filled out. For me this was the best decision i made. I am extremely happy!

L.K ... Chesterfield

My lip creases always embaressed me, i was forever covering my mouth with my hand. I had Teosyal and within 24 hours my upper lip was more or less smooth.

T.M ... Sheffield

It was an easy and effective treatment to have, but i am glad i used numbing cream first. It made the treatment very comfortable.

T.A ... Nottingham

I researched exhaustively for treatment for my smokers lines. Fractional laser skin resurfacing had a downtime of one week whilst the fillers gave me an instant result. I had treatment in the evening and went back to work the next day.
