Most people consider full, plump lips to be one of the most attractive facial features, however, lip shape and size varies hugely from person to person, meaning that many of us have naturally thin lips, which lack definition around the lip line or cupid’s bow.
As with the rest of our face, we also lose volume in our lips as we age, as collagen and elastin production slows down and subcutaneous fat is lost from within the lips. This can leave our lips looking a little “deflated” – the upper lip in particular is more prone to the signs of ageing. As well as the natural process of ageing, other factors, such as exposure to the sun and dehydration can also contribute to this. Even people who had naturally full lips, may find that as they’ve gotten older, their lips have thinned out.
Thin Lips Treatment
Dermal fillers can be injected into both the body and border of the lip to add fullness and definition. There are many different dermal fillers available, but the ones that are used for lip enhancement are normally made of Hyaluronic Acid. Certain dermal fillers have been designed specially for use in the lips and are a lot smoother so that they give a more natural result.
