THREADS AND PRP TO CHASE AWAY YOUR SMOKER LINES

If you’re wondering how to get rid of your smoker lines and achieve a natural result, then you’ve come to the right place!

We all tend to get wrinkles above our lips as we age, and some of us might even realise that our upper lip has flattened over the years! We are definitely not alone on this ride, and this is why the non-surgical aesthetic world is always improving itself to give you the best options on the market to feel confident and beautiful again! Thread lifts are perfect alternatives for surgical face lifts and they are practically non-invasive and cheaper. Thread lifts for smoker lines are perfect and specifically target the upper lip area for a more rejuvenated look.

The key to a beautiful smile and a sexy not only depends on our lips but our upper lip is a key indicator of ageing, which is why it is important to maintain that area of the face. Smoking, genetics and excessive sun exposure are common factors that lead to the deterioration of the upper lip through time.

I constantly advise my patients to take care of the upper lip area before they get visible lines (called static lines), but at the same time they start to see those lines appearing when they speak (we call them dynamic lines). It is the best time for treatment with PDO threads. They are inserted perpendicularly to the lines and will slow down or avoid those lines to get deeper and then visible.

PDO threads are known for the use of collagen type 1 and 3 regeneration and it has been an approved method for it as well as lipolysis and neo-vascularisation! The dissolvable sutures of PDO threads are inserted under your skin, and once they dissolve they allow collagen to grow in their place, allowing you to see long lasting effects. The threads are inserted under the skin and give a structural template for the collagen to grow, helping to reduce the effects of lines and wrinkles on the face.

However, I usually find that the combination of treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or Profhilo is a great complimentary treatment with the PDO threads to get rid of wrinkles above your lips, as it allows the neo-vascularisation and collagen regeneration happen through a growth factor release, which in turns gives the treatments the best possible results. Instead of over using dermal fillers that might make that area over voluminous, PDO threads and PRP usually provide the best harmonious balance!
