Case Study

Getting Rid of Deep Wrinkles Around The Lips With Laser Skin Resurfacing


We do a lot of talking over the years so it is not surprising that our skin creases around the lips as we age. This can also be associated with people that smoke, because the constant puckering of the lips causes creases to form more deeply.


The Erbium resurfacing laser is perfect for targeting these creases around the mouth, leaving it looking smooth and refreshed.

Get Rid of Wrinkles Around the Mouth with Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing can be used on the face and the body. The procedure is able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, deep lines and other signs of ageing that may impact the confidence and self-esteem of the patient. The patient in this case study chose laser resurfacing to remove the wrinkles around the lips, which transformed the appearance of the patient dramatically. To learn more about skin resurfacing and the treatment that was used in this case study, please read our information below.

What Treatments Were Used for the Patient in This Skin Resurfacing Case Study?

The patient in this case study was struggling with wrinkles and creases around the lips, which had a negative impact on the appearance of the patient in question. These types of wrinkles and creases are commonly seen in smokers, considering they constantly pucker the lips.

In order to reduce the appearance of the wrinkles and creases around the lips, the patient chose a laser resurfacing treatment with Erbium laser. The Erbium laser is the perfect treatment for lines and wrinkles around the mouth. The incredible result is definitely noticeable on the patient in this case study.

Why Is an Erbium Laser Better Than Other Lasers for This Treatment?

Laser resurfacing with an Erbium laser can be more beneficial than laser resurfacing with a carbon dioxide laser. Treatment with Erbium laser is less invasive than treatment with a carbon dioxide laser. It is also accompanied by fewer side-effects and increased recovery rate.

How Does Laser Resurfacing with Erbium Laser Work?

Treatment with an Erbium laser will remove the outer layer of the skin, which mainly consists of dead skin cells. By removing this outer layer, the cosmetic surgery is able to reveal the underlying skin, which is more youthful and smoother. A laser resurfacing procedure will also activate the collagen in the skin; this stimulation of collagen will result in tightening of the skin.

How Safe Is a Skin Resurfacing Procedure?

Skin resurfacing is definitely a safe procedure, especially when you consider how effective an Erbium laser can be during this procedure. Even though carbon dioxide lasers are still used for skin resurfacing procedures, Dr Lanzer personally finds the Erbium laser is much more effective and safer.

A skin resurfacing procedure is also safe because of the use of local anaesthetics, instead of general anaesthetics. While most cosmetic procedures used to be executed under general anaesthetic, advancements in cosmetic surgery have enabled cosmetic surgerys to execute most treatments under a local anaesthetic, which is less risky for the patient.

Even for a minor procedure such as skin resurfacing, patients can still count on a follow-up from their cosmetic surgery. When you come to the Dr Lanzer Clinic for a laser resurfacing procedure, Dr Lanzer will keep on following your progress after the procedure until you are fully healed.

Can Laser Resurfacing Be Done On Other Parts of the Body?

Parts of the body that can be treated with laser resurfacing will depend on the type of laser used during the procedure. Laser resurfacing with an Erbium laser can treat areas such as the face, hands, neck and chest. The procedure can be used to treat wrinkles, scars, burns and other skin abnormalities that may have an impact on your confidence and self-esteem.
