The appearance of wrinkles around the mouth is one of the steps in the natural aging process of people. However, wrinkles and fine lines can worsen our appearance significantly. Although their appearance may reflect our lifestyle and the type of care we are giving to the skin, it is inevitable that they will emerge in the long run.

Mouth wrinkles, also known as “barcodes” or “smoker’s lines,” are small vertical lines that form on the lips as we age. They are very difficult to disguise and can significantly worsen our appearance. These wrinkles can be seen on the lips themselves and in the area of skin around them, especially on the upper lip.

Wrinkles in the mouth are also very visible to the eye and can extend from one end of the face to the other.
