shh! Anti-agers no one else but you should know: I quit smoking years ago, but can’t shift the bad rules

Q: I am 78 years young and have lots of fine lines radiating from my lips, causing my beloved red lipstick to run. I quit smoking years ago! Can you suggest treatments?
A: These are indeed ‘smoker’s lines’, and they are a challenge to deal with! But, says Dr Sarah Tonks, there are options.
One is Viscoderm Hydrobooster, a plumping gel that is injected directly into the lines and plumps them up.

“It smoothes the area for six months, but it’s very technique sensitive,” she warns. “Inject too much and you can get ripples.”
So find an experienced doctor who can show you great pictures of their results. Dr Tonks charges £795 per session (you need two) at thelovelyclinic.com, or call 020 8455 4896 to find a clinic near you.
dr. Tonks also likes Nordyx Mono Threads, small threads made from surgical material (called PLAKL) that stimulate collagen production (email info@nordyx threads.com to find your nearest clinic).
‘Injected around the lips, they instantly minimize creases and improve skin texture over time; the threads dissolve within a year, but results remain for two years.’
It costs £695 at Dr. Tonks, who likes to combine wires and the Hydrobooster.
