No Downtime Laser Peel for Smokers Lines

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

What are they?

Smokers lines, also known as vertical lip lines, are wrinkles around the lips and mouth that can often distract others from the beauty of the lips. Sometimes called "lipstick lines" for lipstick tends to bleed into these fine lines making them more noticeable. These wrinkles are very stubborn, and are a very common problem women and men face as the age. Yet, women are more common to develop these wrinkles because of the structure of their skin is different. The harmful effects of smoking as well as pressing the lips together when you smoke is a large factor in the appearance of these lines around the mouth.

Why does smoking cause these lines?

Whenever you suck on a cigarette you are pursing your lips. Same thing goes for when you sip through a straw. This pursing causes muscles to contract around your lips. Repeating these movements will start to cause collagen to break down along with the elastic tissue that keeps the skin looking smooth and youthful. The damage these movements have on around your lips can be permanent if not treated properly. Smoking of course also causes a series of health factors that contribute to smokers lines and wrinkles - not just pursing your lips. For instance researchers have confirmed that cigarette smokers synthesize 20% less collagen in the body compared to those that do not smoke.

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *
