Lines around the mouth

As we age, the mouth area can undergo changes that can affect its appearance. Some of the most common age-related changes that can occur in the mouth area include:

  1. Loss of Volume: The loss of fat and collagen in the mouth area can result in a sunken or deflated appearance, making wrinkles and fine lines more noticeable. The most bothersome of these are vertical lines above or below the lips also referred to as ‘lipstick lines’, ‘barcode lines’ or ‘smokers lines’.
  2. Thin Lips: The lips can become thinner and less defined over time, making them appear less youthful.
  3. Marionette Lines: These are the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin, and they can become more pronounced as we age.
  4. Nasolabial Folds: These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, and they can also become more prominent with age.

To address these changes, there are several cosmetic treatments available, including dermal fillers as well as anti-wrinkle injections. During your consultation, Dr Tash will evaluate your facial features and recommend the most suitable procedure to achieve your desired outcome.

The Treatment options I offer

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to reduce nasolabial folds and marionette lines. They can also help soften lipstick lines.

Anti-wrinkle injections

Can be used to reduce the downward pull of the corners of the mouth as well as soften lipstick lines.


Polynucleotides work at the skin cell level to boost collagen, and hydration and repair damaged tissue.

Skin boosters

Skin boosters can be used to hydrate the area above and below the lips reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Because it is important that your particular problem is identified correctly, I would encourage you to arrange a consultation at Skin Enhance and Wellness for an in-depth analysis of your facial features and devise a customised treatment plan, based on your requirements.
