Wrinkled Lips

Lip wrinkles, which are sometimes called lip lines are tiny vertical lines that form on the lips as we age. Sometimes wrinkled lips are also called crocodile lips which is just a fun fact. Lip wrinkles can be seen on the lips themselves as well as the area of skin around the lips, most of the time it's around the upper lip. They become highly visible to the eye and can stretch from one end of the mouth to the other. When foundation or lipstick is applied, the product can settle within these lines, making them appear deeper and darker than they are. Wrinkles above the lip, which appear as vertical lines, are often more visible and pronounced than those on the actual lips.

Injections of lip fillers performed by a trained medical injector can improve the appearance of fine lines of the lips. By applying lip fillers in micro amounts around the outside of the lines can significantly reduce the appearance of lip lines by reducing the movement of the muscles.
