Lips

Lips

The lips are one of the most distinctive features of the human face. They help us to speak, to express emotion, and to kiss. But the effects of ageing, along with genetic deficits and physical imbalances, can leave people dissatisfied with the appearance of their lips.

The effect of ageing on the lips

A structural protein called collagen contributes to the full, firm appearance of young, healthy lips. Once we reach our twenties, we lose collagen from our skin at a rate of about one percent a year. In the lips, this can lead to a loss of volume, resulting in thin or flat lips. During our thirties and forties, the upper lip can lose its distinctive V-shape area – the Cupid’s bow – and tiny lines may appear. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to thin lips or may wish to correct a physical imbalance. Others may simply wish to enhance the aesthetic appearance of their lips.

Aesthetic treatments for lips

Volumizing-style dermal fillers are one potential treatment for adding volume to lips and correcting imbalances. A typical treatment takes 15-45 minutes, and treatments may last between 12 and 18 months depending on the area being treated, the product selected and the characteristics of the individual. When placed in the deeper layers of the skin, dermal fillers provide a consistency that is soft and yet firm enough to provide volume and shape.
