Plump Your Skin
Anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective for treating naturally formed perioral lines, but they have a secondary, equally important effect. Botox works by blocking signals to the muscles that cause contraction, and over time those muscles weaken, reducing the strength of the contractions which can cause perioral lines in the first place if those contractions occur naturally. If you have perioral lines due to smoking, the contractions will continue and the treatment will be less effective. For this and other reasons, we advise you to quit smoking today or to get help to quit. If you’re considering Botox injections to minimise naturally formed perioral lines, it might also be worth considering using them for other areas of the face subject to lines and wrinkles, including:
- CROW’S FEET
- FROWN LINES (BETWEEN THE EYES)
- SMILE LINES
