Treatment for Horizontal Line above Lip

 
Hi and thank you for your question! The horizontal line above lip can usually best be treated with injection of Botox, but the dose needed is one lower end and care must be taken to avoid injecting too much Botox in this area to ensure the normal function of the muscles around the mouth is preserved. I hope it helps and good luck!
