Patricia Bell asks:
I am 68 years young and was a smoker for many many years. Back when we didn't know the dangers of smoking. I have deep creases, lines or wrinkles around my mouth. The rest of me is aging just fine, very few other facial wrinkles. What is the best treatment for this and what is an approximate fee?

these lines and creases around the mouth are very difficult to completely correct. there are different choices. a popular non-invasive choice would be fillers. these can last from 6 to 18 months. fillers range from 475 to 535.00$. also, this area can be treated with a chemical peel, or a laser. these may last longer, but they are usually more expensive and require more recovery time (1- 3 weeks). there is no best treatment, this is an area that requires continued maintenance for the most ideal result. each patient is different in their results. but you will get some improvement with any of these techniques.
