If there appears to be no end in sight to your smoking habits, it may lead to one of several fatal conditions including heart disease, lung cancer, and emphysema. Smoking can not only affect your internal organs, but also the skin.

One of the root causes of premature aging and wrinkles is none other than tobacco. Smoking after ten years can make a drastic change to your appearance, leaving you looking much older than actual. When these wrinkles appear, they are almost permanent.

If you want to quit smoking, or have already quit, but still are trying to do something about those wrinkles, there is one thing you can do that home remedies or over-the-counter drugs cannot do.

Dermal fillers are a treatment you can take where you can also get facials and other anti-aging treatments in Salt Lake City. What dermal fillers do is reduce the wrinkles left on your skin after a history of smoking, regardless of how long or short. Here are all the types of wrinkles and blemishes that dermal fillers can treat if you have a history of smoking. Like Botox and other treatments, dermal fillers work to help your skin become younger and more elastic for a number of months.

Smoker’s Lines

One type of wrinkle is called “smoker’s lines”. These wrinkles are what any person is able to get, even for people who inhale second-hand smoke. Regular smokers are more likely to obtain them, however, and these can take years off a person’s life.

Smoker’s lines can be found around the lips, and can be treated with Juvederm or Belotero injections. These lip injections occupy the small folds in these wrinkles in order to reduce these lines and wrinkles.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are wrinkles’ that form at the sides of your eyes. These are more often connected to other causes of prolonged aging. While these wrinkles appear naturally as you get older, they are much more visible and pronounced as you smoke. Because of how expressive the eyes can get, they can become more noticeable when you squint or make certain facial expressions. Fortunately, severe instances of crows’ feet can also be treated by Botox injections and they will certainly make your eyes look younger as a result.

Dark Circles

Dark circles aren’t necessarily wrinkles’, but a change in color in the areas underneath the eyes. The skin around your eyes will change depending on your sleeping and eating habits, as well as aging. However, smoking is the number one cause of the accelerated development of dark circles, meaning the more you smoke, the more major they appear on your face.

Dermal fillers add volume to fill in wrinkles and add lost volume to your face. Many kinds of fillers are made with an ingredient your body produces naturally called hyaluronic acid, and can work to improve the appearance of your eyes for at least half a year.

Your appointment for dermal fillers can take up to an hour to complete including numbing the area as needed. Following the procedure you will notice results within 3 -10 days after minor swelling has subsided. You may be asked to come back in 2 weeks for a complimentary follow-up appointment. Dermal fillers are not permanent and therefore require maintenance syringes.
