Our last blog post was based on a question and answer from a Facebook exchange.  Further discussion followed:


(I) am one of the fortunate ones who kicked the smoking habit – the lines around the lips are dreadful evidence.

(I) had several peels and even laser. would do all often once the budget lines up again.

heard good things about obagi and perhaps will…l try it in the near future.

please announce when you come up with a solid solution for lip line repair, 🙂

  • Facial fat into the upper mouth and lower mouth area can help quite a bit. it does require harvesting fat from another body area (hooray!). Another less invasive treatment may be the Selphyl PRP injections.
    A major cause of the upper lip lines can be due to loss of upper mouth fat volume.
  • Friend any recovery time? how often needed? can hardly wait!! 🙂

  • Walter Tom With fat grafting it may take two treatments (we treat the whole face) but this will definitely improve the lip lines. It may last from 3- 5+ years. As for Selphyl we are waiting further studies as to how long the benefits are apparent.
