Question: I used to be a smoker and have those little lines above my lips. Can these be improved with some type of injectable?

Answer: If the lines are relatively deep we can inject a filler directly underneath the line and lift the line and make it visually virtually disappear. If you have multiple, very fine lines in the upper lip my personal recommendation is consideration of a laser peel to permanently get rid of those wrinkles. Fillers could theoretically be used for those lines; however, you end up filling in the majority of the upper lip and most patients end up with a look that is slightly unnatural and that is why I personally try to avoid fillers when patients have more than a handful of lines that are bothering them in that location.
