Perioral Lines Botox®
£90.00 [price_including_tax] inc VAT
Perioral (smokers) lines are the linear wrinkles which radiate out from the border of the mouth. These lines are created through the activity of the underlying obicularis oris muscle and the natural process of ageing with a loss of volume and elasticity in the skin around the mouth. The appearance of these lines may be exaggerated through chronic sun exposure or smoking and certain individuals may have an inherited predisposition to developing them.
Botox® can be injected to relax the muscle fibres surrounding the mouth to help smoothen out the skin and reduce the appearance of these wrinkles. In some cases, this can be supplemented by small volumes of dermal filler which may further help to improve the skin in this area.
