What Causes Thin Lips?

Some people have naturally thin lips and are perfectly happy them.

However, thinning lips can be a sign of aging, a result from smoking or even excess sun/sunbed exposure.

But what about the wrinkles around your lips  too?  Many clients say:  “I don’t understand why I have these lines around my lips.  You’d think I’d been a smoker!”   These lines are often referred to as Smoker’s Lines, but are not necessarily caused by smoking.

As we age, the collagen in our lips breaks down and the muscles tire, leaving lips looking and feeling thinner and leading to the lines radiating from the lips.

Giving a subtle enhancement to your lips is a quick way to achieve a more youthful look.

Treatments For Thin Lips

Lip Fillers

Lip Fillers give an almost immediate result (lips start developing from 48 hours following treatment) and lasting up to 12 months.

The treatment involves injecting a clinically-proved, developed solution containing Hyaluronic Acid under your skin with a fine needle to plump and fill the lips. The solution is used to replace the natural substance in your skin that repairs damaged tissue.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

A measurement of injectable Lip Filler is injected into the lips to add volume and definition, as well as to help smooth out the lines radiating from the lips

The substance in Lip Filler is called Hyaluronic Acid, which is naturally occurring in the body and so completely safe to use. The lips are numbed first to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

The amount injected depends on the effect that you want to achieve.

Will I Look Fake?

A big concern for many clients is that Lip Fillers will make then look unnatural and silly.

It’s understandable with the trend for ever larger, fake-looking lips seen on some people.  But there really is no need to look fake at all.

Lip Filler can give a subtle enhancement – it’s all about the quantity of Filler that’s administered – to leave you looking more youthful.   As the saying goes, Less is More.
