Meyer Clinic: feel better, look better

Lipstick Lines

Fine lines around the mouth are one of the biggest tell-tale signs of ageing.

Lipstick lines | Meyer Clinic

Improve appearance

Lipstick lines go from the vermilion border (the demarcation between the lip and the face at the edge of the lip) outwards, either down towards the chin or up towards the nose can be a source of self-consciousness.

They are mainly formed by muscle movement and are sometimes referred to as “dynamic wrinkles”. People with very expressive or animated faces will tend to have more dynamic wrinkles. Each time the muscle in question contracts to form an expression, the skin attached concertinas.

This repetitive movement can result in a permanent line that, over time, can become a deeper wrinkle.

At Meyer Clinic, we use different treatments to improve the appearance of these lines which are discussed in consultation with our patients. What may work for one set of lips, may not for another which is why all our treatments are bespoke to the individual.

Dermal Fillers

A popular option with our patients dermal fillers are used to hydrate and add volume to the area around the mouth to reduce the appearance of lipstick and fine lines. As this area is particularly delicate to treat it is essential to find an experienced practitioner who is trained in the latest leading edge-techniques and is focused on natural-looking results.

Blue Peel Radiance

At Meyer Clinic, our team of aesthetic therapists offer the latest treatments in skin rejuvenation. Blue Peel Radiance by Obagi is a superficial salicylic acid-based peel that can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area. Skin is tighter, smoother and brighter-looking after just one treatment.


This gold-standard treatment uses targeted ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers beneath the skin, without harming the skin itself. As new collagen and elastin is produced skin lifts and tightens, making Ultherapy® a wonderful option to improve the appearance of fine lines around the mouth.
