Smokers Lines Cardiff

Smokers' Lines

Smokers' lines are sometimes also referred to as the barcode and occur as we grow older and the lip naturally starts to lose its volume. Smokers' lines are often first noticed when lipstick starts to 'bleed' out of the vermilion border (the generally sharp demarcation between the lip and your adjacent normal skin) into the vertical fine lines around the mouth. More common and more pronounced in smokers, these lines can be filled with dermal fillers or treated with BOTOX®.

At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we are completely focused on you as an individual and will always strive to give you a natural-looking end result that exceeds your expectations and makes you feel confident about your appearance.

 

Types of Dermal Filler treatments

At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we use a range of hyaluronic acid fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®. These are non-permanent fillers and their effects typically last for six to 12 months.

The hyaluronic acid used in these dermal fillers is produced biosynthetically by bacterial fermentation. (Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape).

We use longer lasting calcium hydroxyl appatite RADIESSE® fillers. RADIESSE® is a unique dermal filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in a water based gel carrier. It is 100% biocompatible, so no allergy testing is required before use. RADIESSE® is biodegradable and will gradually  break down and be absorbed by your body. However, the results are longer lasting than those of the non-permanent hyaluronic acid fillers, typically lasting for 12 months or longer in many patients.

Patients express a high level of satisfaction with each of these products.
