I have vertical smokers lines on my upper lip, I would like a more permenant solution, would this treatment suit? I have had restylane before but this did not last very long.
We offer laser resurfacing with our erbium or carbon dioxide lasers to help permanently remove these lines. The lasers remove the top layers of the skin and wrinkles, and the skin regenerates over the period of 1 to 2 weeks to form softer / smoother skin.
