Are Vertical Lip Lines Making You Appear Older Than You Feel?

Tame Smoker’s Lines for a Younger-Looking You

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a smoker to have those pesky lines and wrinkles. Stubborn vertical lip lines can be a problematic condition for many men and women due to the natural aging process, genetics, or repetitive lip pursing like drinking out of a water bottle. If you’re not getting the results you want from over-the-counter products and wrinkle creams, it might be time to consider your minimally-invasive options at Karolak Facial Plastic Surgery.

What Treatment Options Are Available for Smoker’s Lines?

At Karolak Facial Plastic Surgeon, we offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatment options for patients with unwanted lines and wrinkles. As a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Karolak uses his skill and expertise to customize treatment plans that will produce dramatic, yet natural-looking results with minimal pain, scarring, and downtime.

You may be a good fit for one or more of the following anti-aging solutions, depending on the severity of your concerns as well as your short and long-term goals.

  • Hyaluronic Injectable Fillers
  • Fat Transfer
  • CO2 Fractional Lasers

Dr. Karolak performs all procedures himself in our state-of-the-art office to ensure an optimal outcome for each and every patient. You can rest assured you’re in good hands when you choose Karolak Facial Plastic Surgery for your aesthetic concerns.

What Results Will I See?*

The results you’ll see will vary according to the treatment chosen to resolve your smoker’s lines. Hyaluronic injectable fillers can produce exceptional results immediately and can last anywhere from 6-18 months, while fat transfer can provide results that are even longer-lasting or indefinite. CO2 fractional resurfacing is typically used for more severe wrinkles and can have initial results in several days with an optimal outcome in 1-2 weeks.

While most patients can see significant improvement with just one wrinkle reduction treatment, some patients may need a series of treatments to achieve the results they want. Dr. Karolak will discuss your projected results at the time of your initial consultation.

Dr. Karolak is an artist, there is no doubt. It is clear that he holds himself to a very high standard of practice and results. Aside from these important qualities, he is also compassionate, warm, and exceedingly supportive before, during, and after your procedure.

I will never hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Just wonderful.*

Is There Any Downtime?

Like your results, the amount of time needed for recovery can vary based on your individual treatment plan. Injectable fillers plump and hydrate the skin without any downtime. However, fat transfer procedures typically require more time for the harvest area to fully heal. CO2 fractional laser treatments can have no downtime or several days to a week of recovery depending on the depth of treatment.
