Botox Injections for Treating Smokers’ Lines

What are Smokers’ Lines?

Smokers Lines Treatments

A common complaints we hear from patients is the appearance over time of vertical lip lines, commonly referred to as “smoker’s lines” or “lipstick lines”. These stubborn wrinkles are caused by a variety of factors, including age, genetics, repetitive lifestyle habits, and in some individuals, smoking.

These lines occur naturally as we age and the lips start to lose their volume. They are often first noticed as lipstick ‘bleeds’ into these lines.


After the botox injections in the Smokers’ Lines treatment people can once again feel confident and youthful.

Smokers’ lines can be successfully treated by botox injections and the smokers’ lines can also be filled with a dermal filler. Often a combination of these techniques is employed.

Botox injections offer a safe, approved and non-surgical solution to many of the wrinkles and facial changes  commonly associated with ageing, including smokers’ lines.

Botox is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be seen for several days after a treatment, the effects of  botox injections in your Smokers’ Lines Treatment will usually last for several months.


The side effects of Smokers’ Lines Treatment are usually very mild but may include temporary swelling, tenderness or a headache. Any side effects are usually reduced with each repeat cosmetic treatment.

Botox injections are quick and convenient to administer but as Botox weakens the muscles that cause lip pursing, it might be a little difficult to drink from a straw and some people occasionally experience difficulty pronouncing some letters or words.

The majority of people who have botox injections for Smokers’ Lines are very satisfied with their cosmetic treatment.
