Wrinkles are inevitable part of ageing. it is not wrong to say that aging and wrinkles go together. If wrinkles are somewhere else in the body, then they may be tolerable. However, wrinkles especially on the face are the ones to get rid of as early as possible. They tend to decrease the face value. Area above the lips is notorious for having wrinkles especially in old age.
The most common cause for wrinkles above the lips is facial expression with the help of lips especially. Due to this the muscles around the lips, known as orbicularis oris are constantly under tension which result in formation of wrinkle lines deep there. In order to avoid wrinkles relax your mouth. Lots of expressions keep the facial muscles constantly under tension and by relaxing those most of the time you can get rid of unwanted wrinkles.
Another factor causing excessive wrinkles above lip is sunlight. Sunlight as ultraviolet radiations which results in formation of free radicals in the body and eventually causing wrinkles. So it is always better to avoid both UVA and UVB radiations as much as possible. This can be done by using sun screens on your face.
Moisturizing your skin is also an important remedy for wrinkles above lip. Moisturize your skin both from inside as well as from outside. Take plenty of fluids especially water throughout the day. You can also use moisturizing creams above your lips to keep them moist.
Certain chemical substances like creams containing hydroxyl acids of different types as well as Retin A creams are very beneficial in getting rid of wrinkles above lips. Hydroxyl acids actually remove the top layer of skin thus exposing the new and healthy skin. However, Retin A creams help in regeneration of the skin cells, resulting in wrinkle removal.
Chemical peel offs are newer modalities used for getting rid of wrinkles above lips. They actually burn away the top layer leaving the new and fresh layer exposed. A dermatologist must be consulted before using this treatment modality.
Laser therapy is becoming more and more popular these days in getting rid of unwanted wrinkles especially above the lips but with few limitations. This treatment modality needs to be repeated after every 3 to 6 months as it has short living effect.
