Over time, the skin loses some of the collagen that is under the surface. This collagen is what fills out the skin, preventing fine lines from appearing. Repeated movements, such as smoking or pursing the lips cause the skin to habitually form a certain shape. When that shape is constantly formed and collagen is lost, fine lines begin to appear. To make them disappear, replace the collagen.

Topical creams containing retinol will stimulate the production of collagen, and results will be seen with repeated applications over a period of time.

Dermal fillers are injections that yield immediate or almost immediate results. When you have collagen or fat injected, it immediately fills out the area under the fine lines. This causes the fine lines to disappear. Hyaluronic acid is a natural dermal filler that forms a gel-like substance when it bonds with water. Have a dermatological professional inject hyaluronic acid, collagen or fat into the skin to fill in the lines around your lips.

Avoid smoking, eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise. These things will prevent or slow down the development of fine lines around the mouth.
