What are thin lips?
The natural voluptuous volume of your lips requires an ample dose of collagen to retain their perky fullness. Youthful lips are full of collagen, which promotes a plump appearance. No matter the lip shape and size that you have, that is genetically pre-determined, everyone will experience a gradual thinning of the lips with age.
What causes thin lips?
The reduction of collagen in the skin is one of the primary causes of thinning lips. Naturally produced by your body, collagen is responsible for the elasticity of your skin. When collagen is in plentiful supply, lips are plump and full. Depletion results in the contours of the lips looking noticeably thinner. Collagen loss can also result in wrinkles forming around the lips, which contributes to signs of ageing. Commonly known as peri oral lines (or ‘smokers lines’) the fine lines are due to premature ageing caused by low levels of collagen production. Hormonal imbalances also have a detrimental impact on lip thinning.
It’s possible to achieve fuller lips, and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. The safe and non-invasive treatment injects hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers into the lips, and the surrounding area, and creates a fuller, plumper appearance while also smoothing out any fine lines and wrinkles. Increasing lip volume halts the thinning of the skin on the lips. Natural long-lasting results are achieved through precision injection techniques that are carried out under topical anaesthetic. The treatment reinforces existing collagen, and boosts the stimulation of the natural collagen production process.
Anti-wrinkle promoting and rejuvenating Botox can effectively target the peri oral lines that can give your appearance a premature aged look. To further enhance your fuller lips, you can also take advantage of the advanced lip corners lift technique and lip hydration treatments.
