What treatments for Smoker’s Wrinkles are available?
The best treatment for upper lip wrinkles or lines around the mouth will depend on a number of individual factors and your desired outcome. At Cosmos Aesthetics we offer a number of lip line treatment options and can also combine treatments to give you the best possible result.
Dermal Fillers/ Skin Boosterd
At Cosmos Aesthetics we only inject the highest quality Dermal Fillers to smooth and fill lines in the upper lip and around the mouth. The filler is made from a naturally occurring substance found in the body and usually lasts about 12 months when used to treat Smoker’s Lines. Dermal Fillers can also be used to enhance the shape of the lip and create a more defined lip border. Product selection will vary according to the patient’s requirements and the severity of their Smoker’s Lines. Treating Smoker’s Lines with Dermal Fillers costs between $350 and $850.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural treatment used for improving skin appearance, texture and elasticity. As simple as a small blood test, your blood is spun in a centrifuge to extract your plasma which is then used to treat lines around the mouth. It does this by stimulating the production of collagen. Treating Smoker’s Lines with PRP costs between $400 and $600.
Fractional Lasers such as the Profile Sciton Laser are often used as an effective treatment for upper lip wrinkles. The treatment targets a “fraction” of the skin by causing thousands of tiny perforations to the Smoker’s Line, but leaves the surrounding unwrinkled skin intact. Healthy cells move into the treated area and cause collagen stimulation. Improvements continue for 3 to 6 months and the number of treatments required will vary depending on individual factors. On average patients usually require 1 to 2 treatments when used in combination with PRP. Please see the video below for more details on Fractional Laser. Treating Smoker’s Lines with Fractional Laser costs $700.
How do I know which upper lip wrinkle treatment is best for me?
To get a more accurate idea of which treatment or treatment combination will work best for you, a consultation at one of our clinics is recommended. During the consultation you can discuss your treatment options, the results you can expect to achieve and an exact costing. The cost of a consultation is $120 and is fully redeemable if you go ahead with a treatment.
