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.
The ageing process takes it out of our lips somewhat, as from as early as our late twenties our lips start thinning. On the other hand, some people are born with smaller lips causing the proportions of your face to be altered. Thin lips due to ageing are caused by loss of collagen in the lips, which reduces both their natural fullness and colour.
At the Dr Victoria clinic it is very simple to restore lip volume, definition and colour. Our medical professionals can administer dermal fillers, containing hyaluronic acid, a type of sugar that occurs naturally in the body. Small amounts of filler are injected into the lips and surrounding area as required to enhance the shape of the lips for a fuller, natural appearance, which is harmonious with your facial features.
Our treatments are often a blend of technologically advanced procedures and more traditional approaches while we give the best patient care from the moment you come in for a consultation. This patient care doesn’t just stop after your treatment, but we offer free ongoing advice to our patients whenever they have any questions.
