Kaycee, I too suffer from lines around my mouth. I have one sever line that comes vertically down from my nose to the lip. I've had collegen in my lips. That helps but I felt as though I had big lumps of something in my lips. I wondered if the radiance would give that foreign object feeling. Also, collegen made me look like Daffy Duck. Not the result I was hoping for. I was hoping for Julia Roberts. I am considering erbium laser or CO2 laser for acne scaring and hopefully it would help this line also. It is supposed to cause the underlying collegen to become stimulated.
In the meantime ladies, this is what I do for temporary help. At night I apply a one inch strip of adhesive tape on the line because I think the position I sleep in causes the line to form while I am sleeping. (I sleep on my side.) Do you notice your lines being really noticable when you first wake up? I keep the tape on the
bedside table and apply after I turn out the light, so hubby is unaware. Also, don't use straws or whistle. If you put a large smile on your face these lines will disappear. Warning: This may cause other lines in other areas.
The things we do to be beautiful or at least less offensive.
