Why do we get them?
Thin lips can be completely natural but they can also be a sign of ageing. If you’ve noticed your lips getting thinner and losing their full, plump look, it’s probably as a result of a loss of collagen and a tiring of the muscles around the mouth as we get older. This can lead to wrinkles around the lips that can really age the face.
Prevention and Reduction
Ensuring your lips are always thoroughly moisturised is one way to keep lip wrinkles at bay. We recommend using a concentrated eye cream around the lips as they often contain active anti-wrinkle ingredients that plump and hydrate the skin. Giving up smoking and generally leading a healthy and active lifestyle are other ways to give your lips and skin the best chance of staying youthful, firm and radiant.
Effective treatments for Thin Lips and Lip Wrinkles
It is very simple to achieve fuller lips and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. At The Harley Medical Group our medical professionals can administer dermal fillers, which have been proven to achieve excellent results for many people. Small amounts of filler are injected into the lips and surrounding area as required to create fuller lips and smooth wrinkles. If you’re only just beginning to notice lip wrinkles, we recommend having a course of medical microdermabrasion, a non-invasive treatment that painlessly removes dead skin cells and stimulates blood cells and the regeneration of new, healthy cells.
Find out more about dermal fillers and medical microdermabrasion, both of which can be used on other areas of the face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead or around the eyes, and to soften frown lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
