The natural ageing process causes our skin to gradually produce less collagen and elastin to keep our skin supple and hydrated. This creates thinner skin which is more susceptible to wrinkle formation. Smoker’s lines are tiny vertical lines that form across the lip itself as well as the skin that runs from the upper lip towards the nose. They often stretch from one side of the mouth to the other, resulting in an uneven and cracked appearance that can make a person’s lower face look distressed and aged.
These stubborn wrinkles are a common side of ageing, even when a person hasn’t necessarily smoked. They can ruin the look of an otherwise smooth complexion, and they are difficult to conceal even with makeup. Using dermal lip fillers in Nottingham, we can replace volume lost with ageing above the lip, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles to leave you with a flawless, younger-looking appearance.
How much product is needed?
This depends entirely upon the depth of the lines which you are seeking to disguise. A client with deeper lines would require 1-2ml per side, while someone with faint lines may only require 0.5ml each side. We can recommend the appropriate amount for you during the consultation stage of your appointment.
What products are used?
At Second Look Aesthetics, we use Revolax Deep for smoker’s lines treatments in Nottingham.
How long does the smoker’s line treatment take in the East Midlands?
This treatment takes around 20 minutes to complete. This includes a consultation so that we can gain a better understanding of any areas of concern and establish an effective treatment plan. Following this, we will recommend the appropriate amount of product depending on the depth of the lines, numb the area and administer the best smoker’s line treatment.
How long do the results last?
Your results will last 9-12 months. This will vary depending on the individual client, as someone with a fast metabolism will find they do not last as long, while someone with a slower metabolism will find they last longer. The more treatments that you have, the longer your results will last as you achieve a build-up of product.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects of lip fillers in East Midlands are very minimal. You may notice minimal bruising, swelling, tenderness and redness in the days following your smoker’s line treatment. Most clients experience no downtime and any symptoms can be easily managed with over-the-counter medication. Full healing will take 1-2 weeks at which point you should have no remaining side effects. We will provide full aftercare instructions following your treatment and our team is on hand to assist at any point should you have any discomfort or concerns.
Is the smoker’s line treatment painful?
This treatment will cause no to mild discomfort. We use clinical grade numbing cream to ensure your comfort during treatment and there is Lidocaine in the dermal filler to further numb the area as the product is being injected.
