1.Protect and Nourish Your lips

Dry and flaky lips can make your lip lines stand out even more, and since lips are covered by a thin layer of skin, it is very easy to get chapped and cracked lips. To protect your lips, apply a rich emollient balm with SPF to protect against sun damage.

2.Change Your Habits

Your daily habits may contribute to fine lines and wrinkles forming on your lips. Drinking out of straws or whistling may seem like it’s harmless, but making a habit out of this can cause lip lines. More harmful habits like smoking also cause lip lines and contribute to fine lines and wrinkles overall and are harmful to your health.

3.Select Skincare Products that Stimulate Collagen Production

To help eliminate lines around your lips, focus on skincare products that will rejuvenate your skin and help your skin look healthy, firm and youthful. Skincare products like Kassir Dermatology Collagen Infusion Gel contains compounds which have been clinically proven to improve the dermal support matrix, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It stimulates your skin to produce collagen which yields to fuller and firmer skin.

4.Consider Peels or Lasers

A glycolic peel can be effective in eliminating lip lines since it removes dead and damaged skin on the outer layers of skin, which reduces the overall look of lines. Laser treatments like the IPL Photo Facial  are effective in treating wrinkles, blotchiness or age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. It can be used on the entire face or specific areas. The laser also has a mild tightening effect on the skin, and there is no downtime!


Botox is a popular solution when it comes to erasing deep wrinkles around the mouth and lip area.  Botox is used to treat numerous medical conditions and is the most popular go-to wrinkle relaxer amongst people of all ages. A injection of Botox  will immobilize selected muscles of facial expression and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.


You can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth AND on your lips with injectable fillers! When injected properly, fillers can fill in facial lines and folds, and add volume to your lips, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Dermal Fillers  add fullness and shape to lips providing natural-looking results after just ONE treatment!
