Botox Lips

Causes of lip wrinkle


The lips wrinkle easily after we ages, especially so among the Caucasian. The vertical lines seen in both the upper and lower lips, also called the bar code lips is an indication of the  ageing process whereby the skin, the underlying collagen and elastic tissues has been thinned out. Due to this the over lying skin of the lip comes close to the lip muscle, and once it started to contract, it wrinkles the overlying skin giving rise to a dynamic wrinkle lines. As we ages further and if left untreated, it becomes a static lines.
