Having wrinkles around the mouth? Acupuncture can help to reduce them.

Wrinkles are a part of the aging, you will find wrinkles appearing in different areas of your face like the forehead, around the eyes, and wrinkles around the mouth.

Wrinkles around mouth are also called perioral wrinkles, also known as barcode lines or smoker’s lines. They are the fine or deep vertical lines around the mouth and lips. These wrinkles are formed by contracting of the muscle around the mouth called orbicularis oris.

The orbicularis oris muscle is a complex of muscles in the lips that encloses the mouth. It consists of four independent quadrants that connects each other which gives it a look of circular. It blended in with other expression muscles on the face. When it contracts, it closes the mouth and puckers the lips creating vertical wrinkles around the mouth.

Acupuncture can help this muscle to relax and reduce the vertical wrinkles around the mouth.

Other wrinkles around the mouth

Smile Lines (nasolabial lines) – These are those lines that run from thebottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Marionette lines – These are the vertical wrinkles that can be found at the corners of the mouth. These lines can give the face a downturned expression and make you look sadder, serious, or even angrier.
