Mouth Wrinkles Treatments – The 5 Best Options

in Anti Aging

Mouth wrinkle treatments are an immediate requirement for most people trying to fight off the signs of aging. So it’s obvious that there are a whole lot of treatment options available in the market today.

Chemical Peels

Three types of peels are performed, depending on the desired outcome: superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.

Superficial Peel A superficial peel is just as it sounds: a lighter peel that does not penetrate as deeply into the skin. Superficial, or mild peels, are generally done with alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), but trichloroacetic acid (TCA) may also be used. However, the skin may flake and remain red for a few days. The patient will most likely need treatments over a longer period of time to reach the desired effect.

Medium Peel A medium peel often contains trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Though this treatment will not correct deep lines and wrinkles, it will improve the texture of skin with fine lines and pigmentation problems. The procedure lasts up to one hour, and the patient may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation during the treatment. Within a week, the treated skin will crack and peel, revealing a fresh layer underneath. Redness may persist for up to two weeks, and several peels may be needed to treat the area(s), depending on the severity of the skin’s damage.

Deep Peel Deep chemical peels are often referred to as phenol peels. These are the most extensive of the three, and therefore recovery time is longer, pain is more severe, but the results are often superior to other techniques. The procedure can take up to two hours for a full-face peel, and since swelling of the eyes is common, it is suggested that the patient have someone to care for him or her for at least 48 hours after the procedure. The intensity of the peel can cause the skin to turn a ghostly white color, and this color may not change; so the best candidate for a deep peel is someone with a fair skin tone. After the procedure, the skin will be raw. Pain medication and antibiotics may be prescribed. After three months, the skin should lose the bright red tone.


Dermabrasion, is an excellent mouth wrinkle treatment that helps to smoothen the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The surgeon scrapes away the top layers of skin using an electrically operated instrument with a rough wire brush or diamond-impregnated burr. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance. Dermabrasion can result in excellent improvement, but can also produce significant side effects, including scarring and permanent changes in skin color.

Laser Resurfacing

In laser resurfacing, a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions like on the mouth. In many cases, facial wrinkles form in localized areas, such as around the mouth. The laser can be precisely controlled so that only these specific areas are targeted. Often, the procedure is done in conjunction with another cosmetic operation, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. Risks associated with laser resurfacing include burns or other injuries from the heat of the laser energy, scarring, and obvious lightening or darkening of the treated skin. It’s among the more expensive options for mouth wrinkle treatment.

Non-ablative Laser Resurfacing: Unlike “traditional” resurfacing procedures, in which the epidermis is sacrificed, leaving a raw surface that takes days to heal, non-ablative laser resurfacing or “photo rejuvenation” utilizes light energy to stimulate collagen remodeling to remove irregular pigmentation and enlarged blood vessels from the skin surface.

Plastic Surgical Procedures

Browlift – For persons who want to remove fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth a browlift is a viable solution. Overall, recovery from browlift surgery is uncomplicated and quick. Most people can return to work or their regular daily activities within 10 days or less.

Botox Cosmetic

Botox Cosmetic is the number one non-surgical medical procedure for the removal of facial wrinkles. Botox works by paralyzing the muscles that create the wrinkles and that way lessening the appearance of frown lines or laugh lines. Improvement lasts several months and must be repeated to sustain improvement. Anyone considering any of the cosmetic procedures should be sure to consult doctors who have experience in one or several of these techniques. Patients should fully inform themselves about the risks and potential benefits of the procedure they are considering before going forward. Botox is a very popular mouth wrinkle treatment option especially in the US.
