Easy Ways to Minimize Lip Lines

Fine lines that appear around the mouth can make you look older than you feel and deter your beautiful smile from shining through. In addition, lip lines can result in lipstick bleeding that is simply unattractive and makes many women self-conscious about wearing makeup. If you are ready to bid farewell to your lip lines, check out these easy ways to minimize their appearance so you can put your best pout forward every day. 


One of the culprits of lip line formation is skin dryness, so keep the skin around the lips as supple as you can with high quality moisturizing formulas. Hyaluronic acid is a good ingredient to look for, since it helps skin to lock in moisture for long-lasting results. Use moisturizing lip products as well, to keep lips soft and pretty even while you are working on the skin surrounding them. 


Exfoliation is an effective way to minimize lip lines, and there are plenty of good options to choose from. Chemical peels use solutions to remove outer layers of skin cells, leaving softer, line-free skin underneath. Microdermabrasion is also an effective exfoliation treatment that uses a diamond-tipped wand to eliminate outer skin cells. Dermabrasion is a similar treatment that works deeper under the skin’s surface, creating more dramatic results but also requiring a longer recovery period.

 Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing has come a long way in recent years, with laser tools that penetrate outer skin layers without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. Lasers are precise enough to use on smaller areas like the skin above the upper lip, smoothing away lines and stimulating the body’s own collagen production for results that are long-lasting. Laser treatment can easily be customized to the patient’s unique skin type and concerns, ensuring the best possible results for every patient.

 Injectable Treatments

One of the most effective ways to treat lip lines today is with dermal filler injections using a product called Belotero. This treatment uses a very fine needle to administer hyaluronic acid gel formula that fills in fine lines and wrinkles. If you choose Belotero injections for your lip lines, select a physician that is experienced in the treatment to ensure you don’t experience any asymmetry of the lips after treatment.
