Lip lines are a common sign of aging seen in both men and women. Dr. Michael Scannon and his associates at Florida Westcoast Skin and Cancer Center in Tampa, FL can educate patients on how to prevent lip lines or delay them, in addition to finding solutions for treating them once they’ve developed.
What causes lip lines to form?
Lip lines are usually caused by a combination of things, including sun damage, smoking, and genetics. However, there are a few things you can do to help prevent them from forming:
- Some simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference when it comes to preventing lip lines. Wearing sunscreen on your lips whenever you go outside is one of the best things you can do. This will help protect your lips from harmful UV rays that can cause damage over time.
- Quitting smoking is another excellent way to reduce your risk of developing lip lines. Smoking causes the skin around your mouth to become dry and wrinkled, so quitting will help keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.
- Finally, staying hydrated is essential for keeping your skin looking its best. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and help prevent lines from forming.
How can I treat lip lines that have already formed?
Our team may recommend nonsurgical solutions such as dermal fillers to add volume to the lines and reduce their appearance. Dermal fillers can last several months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results and slow the process of aging.
