One of the early signs of aging is appearance of fine lines around the lips. These lines, also called nasolabial folds, develop because of less collagen production in old age. As you age your body begins to produce less collagen causing ligaments around the mouth and chin to loosen and as a result the fatty tissues in your cheeks begin to sag.
However, age is not the only factor that causes wrinkles around the lips; bad habits and an unhealthy lifestyle can cause your skin to wrinkle and sag at quite an early age. Four habits that have been proven to cause early age wrinkling around mouth include smoking, chewing gum, drinking out of a straw and sleeping on your side. A recent research has proven that drinking out of bottle can also cause nasolabial folds. Going out without wearing sunscreen is also one major reason behind appearance of wrinkles at an early age. If you want to avoid these facial lines then always wear sunscreen and avoid repeated facial expressions.

Botox, a naturally occurring toxic protein, when injected into the skin causes the facial muscles to relax, thereby making the wrinkles and creases less visible. Expression lines around the mouth are caused by frequent movement of muscles. Botox, brand name for botulinum toxin type A, is injected directly into the muscle causing these lines. The drug temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for formation of fine lines around the lips, and thus prevents them from contracting. As a result these lines become less noticeable.
It is a safe and easy procedure that hardly takes 10 to minutes, depending on the technique and the extent of lines. The discomfort associated with the injection is almost negligible; however, if you are overly sensitive to needle prick then your practitioner may apply some topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before administering Botox.
