Peri Oral Lines
Perioral sculpting is a treatment for barcode vertical lines which exist above your upper lip. This treatment involves the use of anti-wrinkle injections (botox) and/or hyaluronic acid filler to soften the lines.
Our doctors will usually advise on which treatment approach is best for you. Patients in their 30-40’s with fine lines may be treated with anti wrinkle injections alone, however patients in their 50’s and above or those with deeper lines would usually be great candidates for treatment with both dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections.
Treatment with dermal filler is visible straight away however some swelling or bruising can take up to 2 weeks to settle. Treatment with anti wrinkle injections takes 5 days to start working and full effects are seen at 2 weeks.
Often patients who require perioral sculpting may also have a lack of volume and hydration in their lips, which can be ageing. In this case a very subtle lip filler can be administered to bring this area back to life.
