Can injections get rid of horizontal lines or wrinkles below the nose?

Are there any injections that can get rid of the horizontal lines or wrinkles below the nose?

Bottom line – sometimes with Botox/Dysport injections these horizontal lines or wrinkles below the nose can be eliminated.

Wrinkles Below the Nose

Wrinkles Below the Nose

Try this.   Wrinkle your nose up like you are smelling something nasty.   There are little muscles that run up the side of the nose that do this.   If those are relaxed, generally the muscle won’t pull up and that horizontal line will improve.   The only problem is that in some people who have a smile where the upper lip doesn’t show the teeth much, this could drop the upper lip a little more.   Have your doctor try this very cautiously the first time because you may not like what it does to your smile.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
