  • Add hyaluronic acid to your routine- Extremely hydrating for the skin It will leave it feeling comfortable and looking youthful, plumped and smoothed.
  • Try vitamin C- Vitamin C will work wonders for the entire complexion, not just wrinkles around the mouth.

What is the best treatment for deep wrinkles on upper lip?

For deep wrinkles around the upper lip there are a few treatments and procedures to consider;

  1. Chemical Peel- With a professional medical-grade chemical peel you will find the skin is resurfaced allowing fresh, new skin to be exposed and the layer of dead skin is removed resulting in wrinkles and fine lines becoming less visible.
  2. Microneedling- This involves a device used to roll pins across the skin which tricks the skin into thinking it is damaged and so boosts the production of collagen resulting in wrinkles becoming filled out and the complexion looks smoother.
  3. Derma Fillers- You can find derma fillers that contain hyaluronic acid that hydrates the skin making it appear more plumped and younger
  4. Face Lift- For more extreme cases there is the option for having a facelift, this decision shouldn’t be taken lightly and a lot of time and consideration should be taken before undergoing this surgery.

Some of these options are temporary and you need to keep in mind that if you enjoy the results then you must expect to repeat the procedure every 6 months or so.
