As we age our lips can lose volume and structure. This can be caused by collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid breaking down. These are the substances that give our lips shape and volume. Many factors can contribute to this such as sun exposure, smoking, and our bodies natural ageing process.
Dermal fillers can be used to treat the border of the upper and lower lip, to enhance the contour and shape of the lip, reducing the appearance of fine lines. Lip augmentation can be performed to achieve an increase in lip volume or give thin lips a naturally fuller appearance without looking ‘fake’.
