Of all the types of wrinkles, the barcode is one of the most unsightly that can occur. Found on the top of the lip, these expression marks are affected by different environmental factors, genetics and personal habits.
However, if they are already present, what can you do to remove the barcode?
Remove wrinkles from the upper lip
Colloquially known as a barcode, this term is used to label the vertical wrinkles that appear at top of the mouth, on the upper lip.
Their origin can be found in different factors: always bearing in mind genetics, these types of wrinkles usually appear from the age of 40, it is uncommon to find them in younger people.
They mostly affect women, although they can also occur in men because the skin around the lip is formed by a very thin layer, prone to deterioration. This area is constantly moving.
Two of the most harmful environmental factors for this area are the sun and tobacco. Sun exposure can affect any part of our skin; however, because the lip area is especially thin, as is also the case with the eye area, it needs paying special attention to.
Also, if you are a smoker, you should keep in mind that when smoking we purse our lips and that these wrinkles will be fostered by this habit.
