Botox® Mouth Lip Lines Treatment

A beautiful smile is a sight to behold and can light up a room. Some people are fortunate to have an appealing mouth even when it is in resting phase. Others may not be quite as lucky due to lip lines. These lines take time to appear and are most visible on older adults.

Lip lines become more visible after years have gone by for several reasons. The older we get, the more the skin goes through changes. The proteins collagen and elastin in the skin begin to break down with aging. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity. Bone and muscle shrink as we get older. Between the breakdown of supportive proteins and the loss of bone and muscle mass, the skin becomes more prone to wrinkles.

Lip lines are also formed by years of smoking. The puckering of the lips to hold a cigarette causes wrinkles to form over time. Environmental factors also play a role. Pollution, UV rays and other environmental toxins contribute to premature aging of the skin. Botox® injections can help reduce the appearance of lip lines and aid in creating a more youthful look.

Effecting Change with Botox Injections

Botox is not a dermal filler. It works as a neuromodulator, inhibiting muscle movement by blocking nerve signals to the brain. The muscles in your lower face affect the appearance of the overlying skin. When the muscles in the targeted area are injected with Botox, they do not move as much. This, in turn, allows the overlying skin to rest smoother. While this treatment can give satisfactory results, it is often used in combination with a dermal filler.

The skin in and around the lips may need to be plumped up with a dermal filler in order to produce the desired results. The filler reduces the appearance of wrinkles in and around the lips while the Botox treatment relaxes the muscles so the skin will look smoother. Your doctor will examine the area and determine the best approach for achieving the optimal results.

You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Khosh or Michele Rivard, PA, for a consultation to find out more about addressing the issue of lip lines. Contact Creative Facial Aesthetics now to make your appointment.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
