Treating peribuccal wrinkles with Botox injections
As we get older, peribuccal wrinkles appear around the lips and produce a pleating effect around the mouth. This can be due to sun exposure, smoking and dehydration. The orbicularis muscle of the lips, which is frequently used, also emphasizes the appearance of these wrinkles, in particular for smokers who contract the muscle more frequently. This is why they are commonly referred to as, “smoker’s wrinkles”.
