I haven't smoked for 10 years, I'm 35. Why does my upper lip look 60? What can I use? That poxy bloody rose hip oil has done Nothing. ANY recommendations will probably be followed up, I'm almost thinking injections here!

Fillers? Just had mine done.

poppym12 Wed 24-Jun-15 22:45:40

how long do they usually last 27?

I am succumbing to the dreaded lip lines, and I have never smoked. I won't do fillers though.

I had fillers two months ago. Best thing ever, although I can't remeber how long they're meant to last. i'll be back for more when they lose their effect

I find fillers last 4 months or so.

With the filler, did they fill the lines, or inflate the entire area so they got stretched out?

Rosehip oil is never going to prevent lines. Possibly pigmentation a bit but not lines. CH has a great line of 'when you get to a certain age a few rose hips are just not going to cut it'.

I hav lines and have never smokedshock

sad I fell for the rose hip related hype!

Moisturiser, any good ones which might inflate them a bit?

What is the rest of your skincare routine like? Are you already using acids and retinols which can help increase collagen so slow down things getting any worse? Most importantly on the prevention side are you using SPF everyday?

You might find some plumping happens with hyaluronic containing moisturisers like Eucerin Hyaluronic Filler.
