Some of us were born with lips that are naturally thin, and others have lips that have become thinner as they’ve grow older. As we age, our collagen production slows down, and this can cause the lips to lose volume. Thin lips can make the face look less vibrant and older than it actually is, but dermal fillers will give us back the volume, giving us the luscious lips we are after. So whether our lips have always been small and thin or they have become that way with age, dermal fillers can restore them.
Looking at ourselves in the mirror we might notice changes happening to our lips:
- Vertical lines – sometimes called smokers’ lines or lipstick lines
- Lost definition – the border known as the vermilion border has less definition to the outside of the lips
- Volume loss – lack of fullness in the lips
- Flatter philtrum ridge – lack of shape to the ridge between the upper lips and the nose
- Flat lips – less pronounced shape and the cupid’s bow lacks definition
Lots of us are unhappy with the lack of volume in our lips; wanting more volume, a better shape, definition of the border and to have more definition on the cupid’s bow. Dermal fillers are a perfect cosmetic treatment to make them full again. A good cosmetic doctor will give you subtle, natural-looking results; plump, shapely and youthful, but without them looking like they’ve had any treatment. The same dermal fillers injected to add volume, are also used to shape the lips, and these treatments are usually done during the same procedure.
These are sometimes called lipstick lines, and they are the fine vertical wrinkles that develop just above the lips. These lines show up when we purse our mouth while smoking or drinking through straws, but as we get older, they begin to become a more permanent fixture. Light botox treatment is often used to treat these pucker lines.
These lines run from the corners of the mouth to the chin and are similar to smile lines. Dermal filler corrects these lines.
These are also known as nasolabial folds, laugh lines or parentheses, and they’re the wrinkles that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Dermal fillers are a great option for smoothing these lines away.
Dermal fillers will give the lips volume and definition, and the injections are completely controlled, letting the client choose if they want a subtle, in-between or more dramatic look. Lip fillers can prevent and improve the signs of ageing, leaving us happy to enjoy younger looking, plumper lips for longer.
