There: There are a few options when it comes to treating fine lines around the lips like you describe: 1. Injectible skin filler: a filler such as Restylane (dermal fillers) or juvederm can be injected in the skin in the area where the lines are to improve volume loss that may be occurring there.

More info: You didn't say how tall you are and how much you weigh. Are you really a normal weight? If not, the lines are a sign of that. The lines could be from excessive sun exposure. If so, that's not reversible but a dermatologist might help. But as a psychiatrist I have to go back to the basic issue: are you still restricting your diet and maintaining a subnormal weight to fight anxiety? ...Read more
