How To Treat Smokers Lines

One of the most common problems we hear from clients at RT Aesthetics 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 clients, smoking. Smoker’s Lines are straight lines on the upper lip, going from the end of the lip and towards the nose. These lines are normally slightly tilted outwards and can cause many clients to feel insecure in their facial appearance. The key to the severity of the lines is proportional to the frequency and number of times the shape is made during a lifetime.

Why do Smoker’s Lines appear?

Smoker’s Lines are vertical lip lines that develop over time, caused by repetitive facial expressions, the natural ageing process and smoking. These lines run from the top lip towards the nose, starting off as fine lines which can become deeper over time. Smoker lines can make many clients feel self-conscious and concerned about the way they look as the mouth is the focal point to the face. Also known as Lipstick Lines, when applying colour the wrinkles can gather and stick to the wrinkles, this make it difficult to hide the appearance, resulting in an overall aged appearance.

Smoking promotes the development of vertical lip lines, due to the repetitive action of sucking on the cigarette. Toxins within cigarettes break down the collagen and restricts blood flow and decreases oxygen to the skin’s surface, resulting in the acceleration of the ageing process. However, smoker lines can appear in those that do not smoke, this can be upsetting for those that do not smoke and who develop vertical lines around the mouth.

What causes Smoker’s Lines?

Smoker lines are caused by the natural ageing process, as collagen and elastin decrease the formation of wrinkles and lines are formed. These lines can be hereditary, for example, if your parents have/had vertical lip lines, then it is likely that you will also develop them. Other factors that can cause smokers lines include:

  • Drinking from a straw
  • Drinking from a bottle
  • Pouting / smiling
  • playing musical instruments
  • Diet and lifestyle

I could not be happier. Ryan made me feel at ease from the minute we met. I suffer really badly with anxiety and body dysmorphia so this was a very big deal for me. The attention he pays to detail and his knowledge of procedures is out of this world, he's a very intelligent and talented individual. There is literally nothing to worry about!

Rachel Moriarty

Just had my follow up appointment from my HIFU treatment... I am so happy with my results and after care I have received. The team were so warming and helpful and always on hand when I had silly questions to ask! Highly recommend this company! From start to finish my experience was warming and Ryan explained everything to me in great detail. I have since had my before and afters and I cannot express how happy I am. If you are struggling like I was and scared, then look no where else and contact this company, I promise you wont be disappointed.

Jess Williams

I am so happy with my fibroblast plasma… I am so happy with my fibroblast plasma treatment with Ryan. It had made such a huge difference and impact to both my eyes and crows feet. Everything was fully explained to me and I was very nervous at first. Straight after the treatment I was sent all my aftercare via email and had constant communication during my healing process. I was told that results take around 8 weeks to fully develop but at only 2 weeks I knew it had worked and my results were amazing from 2 weeks onwards. Ryan was very kind person who fully explained everything to me and made sure I was okay. The aftercare was great and I cannot recommend enough for all his hard work and warming heart. Thank you Ryan and will be recommending to others.

Linda Jenkins

I had the cryolypolosis (fat freezing) treatment on my stomach and love handles and have seen such amazing results after only two weeks, even though as standard it is supposed to take up to six weeks for results to show. I will be booking in for the HIFU treatment they offer shortly to target the wrinkles on my forehead and my crows feet and I have no doubt I will be ecstatic with the results.

Elizabeth Major

A huge thanks Ryan for today. I was a bit nervous but more because I needed to get down to my underwear in front of you. You made me feel really comfortable and at ease. Everything was explained really well and I'm really excited for the results and my follow up in 6 weeks.

Maria Sutton

Kirsty Kennedy

I attended RT Aesthetics for a consultation after having my second baby girl and in desperate need to get my body back in shape. I have had zero self confidence and wanted to feel better about myself. The staff were so friendly and advised a plan of action for me in a professional way, I felt like the cared. I started on their diet plan and had fat freezing on my abdomen, and I have to say the results have been amazing. I can see that I've I lost my baby weight and my stomach is flatter and I feel like me again. Thank you so much!

Sasha Goodman

RT Aesthetics are one of the must caring and professional company’s I have been lucky enough to be part of. I first met at their new clinic in Whickham and it was so easy to get too and lots of car parking spaces. I went in for my appointment and was met with a friendly atmosphere with cup of coffee and some leaflets to look at. I booked in for my Fat Freezing Treatment after I had previously had treatment at another clinic in Newcastle where I seen no results. I was told the reason why and I booked in for my Fat Freezing Treatment. I have now been post treatment 13 weeks and can not believe the dramatic results I have experienced. All my friends think I’ve had surgery and I hoesntly wouldn’t believe the results if I hadn’t had the treatment myself. AMAZING thank you

Sarah Wright

My plasma treatment was a little scary at first and the healing process didn’t look the best. However now I have my results I have to say it is the best thing I have ever done. It’s taken over 10 years of my face and I don’t feel such hang around my eye lids. They also removed my eye bags and it looks great. The aftercare provided is great and the responses I get were always within 2 hours or less. Great company with great knowledge and customer service. Thank you

Kaylie Summers

Great results from my HIFU and plasma treatment. Professional and the attention to detail was out of this world. I’ve been to other clinics for consultations but I knew from day 1 I was in safe hands and the knowledge and honest is truly a blessing. If you want a professional company that’s down to earth and going to be very honest with what you need and not tell you to buy the most expansive treatment then speak to these guys. Excellent customer experience and they know what their talking about! Great results and fantastic aftercare.

Ross Hall

Great results from my fibroblast plasma treatment around my eyes and crows feet. Was a little painful after treatment but the results have truly been worth it all. Very caring and always there when I had any questions or concerns regarding the treatment. I’ve booked in for fat freezing now and due to have this Tuesday.

David Davidson

My HIFU Treatment at RT Aesthetics was a little painful but my results 3 months later are really impressive. Great after care and my before and after photos are great. The treatment did feel a little like pin dots or a little warm but it wasn’t very painful at all. Everything was explained to me before treatment and I was sent my aftercare via email with all the contact information I would need. Overall it’s been a great expirence.

Tom White

I had fibroblast plasma lift around 3 weeks ago and I just say that it can be painful in some of the areas I had done. After treatment it felt sore and the next day it looked really bad. I had swelling, redness and blisters and I really thought to myself what had I done. I called my doctor and the Nuffield and he said it was completely normal. I can say today (3/4 weeks later) that I’m very happy with my results and happy with how well the plasma treatment has worked. However, I can’t say it’s a pleasant the first week after having it done. 5 stars for results, aftercare and everything RT Aesthetics gave to me. Just bare in mind it’s not the nicest treatment.

Sandra Walker

After seeing an advert on Facebook I decided to book a consultation to learn more about fat freezing. After learning lots about fat freezing during the consultation and reading lots online I booked in for treatment. This was around 11 weeks ago and I have seen such a big difference around my love handles and stomach area. The aftercare was great, you get a diet plan, email, follow up appointments and if I needed anything I just gave them a quick call and they were able to help. Great treatment and great aftercare which is what you want from this sort of treatment.

Harriet Brown

My plasma treatment at RT Aesthetics was great and I even learnt loads about the body and how it works. 3 and half weeks later and I’ve got such amazing results around my eyes where I used to have hooded eyes. Thank you for everything and I cannot thank you enough for my results and the profession after care I expirenced!
