Ageing Around the Mouth

Solutions for Ageing Around the Mouth

As we age, the delicate skin around our mouth often reveals some of the earliest signs of ageing. This area, prone to fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, can significantly impact the overall appearance of our face. At our doctor-led clinics in Belfast and Bangor, we specialise in advanced treatments designed to rejuvenate and restore youthful vitality to the mouth area. Led by Dr. Mark McCoubrey, our expert team offers a range of solutions, from microneedling and chemical peels to state-of-the-art fillers and skin boosters, to combat these common ageing concerns.

Understanding Ageing Around the Mouth

The ageing process around the mouth is influenced by several factors, including:

  1. Loss of Collagen and Elastin: These proteins provide structural support and elasticity to the skin. Their natural decline with age leads to sagging and the formation of wrinkles.
  2. Repeated Muscle Movements: Daily actions like talking, smiling, and chewing contribute to dynamic wrinkles, commonly known as expression lines.
  3. Volume Loss: Over time, fat pads in the face diminish, leading to a deflated, sunken appearance, particularly around the lips and mouth.
  4. Environmental Factors: Sun exposure, smoking, and pollution accelerate skin damage, further exacerbating signs of ageing.
  5. Genetics: Our genetic makeup plays a significant role in how and where we show signs of ageing.

Signs of Ageing Around the Mouth

The signs of ageing around the mouth are often some of the first to appear and can include:

  • Vertical Lip Lines: Also known as "smoker's lines," these fine lines form on the upper lip.
  • Nasolabial Folds: These are the deep lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
  • Marionette Lines: Lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth, giving a downturned appearance.
  • Lip Deflation: Thinning lips and loss of volume are common as we age.

Our Expert Treatments

At our clinics, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments tailored to address these signs of ageing and restore a more youthful appearance.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that involves creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin using fine needles. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, promoting collagen and elastin production. It’s particularly effective for improving skin texture, reducing fine lines, and enhancing overall skin tone around the mouth.

Chemical Peels

For more thorough skin resurfacing, chemical peels can be highly effective. They work by removing the outermost layers of skin, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath. Chemical peels can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, and sun damage around the mouth.

Dermal Fillers

Volume loss is a major contributor to ageing around the mouth. Dermal fillers, administered by Dr. Mark McCoubrey, can restore lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are particularly popular as they not only provide immediate results but also stimulate collagen production over time.

  • Lip Fillers: To combat lip deflation, lip fillers can add volume and definition, creating a fuller, more youthful pout.
  • Fillers for Nasolabial and Marionette Lines: Injecting fillers into these areas can smooth out deep lines and lift the overall appearance of the lower face.

Skin Boosters

Skin boosters are injectable treatments designed to hydrate and improve the quality of the skin. Unlike traditional fillers, skin boosters work by distributing micro-injections of hyaluronic acid evenly across the treatment area. This leads to long-lasting hydration, improved elasticity, and a natural glow.
