Vertical Wrinkle Lines Between Upper Lip and Nose
How to Get Rid of the Vertical Lines in New York?
One of the first places on the face where people develop vertical lines is just next to the nose. The line may suddenly appear one day and runs from the side of the nose down to the upper lip. While some people may have a single vertical line on just one side of the face, others may develop vertical lines on both sides of the nose. Vertical lines next to the nose can end up making a person look old and grumpy.
While aging is a common cause of these vertical lines, there are also other causes or triggers. If the line(s) happens to be on one side of the face, the reason could be sleeping on that particular side of the face or repeatedly making a certain facial motion only on that side (e.g., winking).
For lines on both side of the nose, the cause can be smoking, repeatedly using the facial muscles for whistling,
puffing a cigar, constantly smiling, habit of sucking on straw or laughing. The lines occur because these habitual facial motions cause the underlying muscles to contract and relax each time. Over time, the deeper tissues like collagen and elastin lose their resilience, and you develop lines. When younger people have these lines, the most common cause is smoking.
How can one prevent nose lines?
To prevent these vertical lines on the side of the nose, it is important to discontinue smoking. The second thing to do is avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. If you venture outside, always use a sunscreen with a high SPF. Even though some people recommend not making facial motions like laughing or smiling, this is not practical advice. We all laugh and chew, and there is no way to avoid that.
How can lines be treated at Rejuve NYC?
In the skincare market, there are thousands of creams, lotions, and potions that have been hyped up to treat every type of skin blemish. Unfortunately, most of the skincare products only smell nice and do not have ability to reverse wrinkles or creases. Hydrating products sometimes work but are usually not potent enough to erase the deep vertical lines.
If you only have beginnings of fine lines around the nose, you may want to try dermabrasion. The revolving brush can polish the skin and remove the superficial layers of skin. The treatment is cheap, but it does not work for the deeply etched lines around the nose. Similarly, chemical peels only work for the fresh thin lines and do not work well for the deep lines. In addition, higher strength chemical peels are more likely to induce complications.
The one treatment that is now widely used is Botox. Botox injections are done as outpatients and the procedure rarely takes more than a few minutes. The benefits of Botox occur within 4-7 days and last 3-4 months. There is little downtime and the procedure is fast and convenient.
Another good option is the use of dermal fillers. Over the years, many types of dermal fillers have been developed and essentially they all work in the same way – the only difference is in the duration of their cosmetic benefits. Dermal injections are done as outpatients, and there is downtime of a few days. The results may last 6-18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler. Some people may need touch-up once or twice a year.
Another possible option is Laser treatment. It has proven to produce exceptional results that are also durable. Laser resurfacing of the skin can erase the wrinkles and produce a smooth, younger looking face.
