Quit Smoking: The vertical lines on the lips are a well-known side effect of smoking. Perhaps injections may help--but the best thing you can do to prevent them from getting worse is to do that which is very difficult--quit smoking. If that's what's happening to your lips, just think what's happening to your lungs--and arteries.
