Thin or Aging Lips

Did you know that the skin on your lips is among the thinnest and most delicate on the body?

What are Thin or Aging Lips?

Due to their thin and delicate nature, the lips are especially vulnerable to sun damage, environmental stressors, and the effects of aging. When this skin is left unprotected, these factors contribute to declining collagen stores over time, and cause the lips to age at a more rapid pace. Before you know it, they’re no longer plump and kissable, but thin and deflated.


Symptoms of Thin or Aging Lips

Aging around the lips usually manifests in volume loss, loss of lip line definition, and the appearance or deepening of perioral wrinkles (also known as smoker’s lines). 

Lips may also appear thin, unbalanced, or asymmetrical simply as a result of genetics. Luckily, there are effective injectable treatment options that can help address your concerns while providing natural-looking results tailored to suit your unique facial features. 

A thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, Dermatologist, will determine the volume and type of injectable filler that is best suited to your unique lip goals.

Treatment Options for Thin or Aging Lips

Injectable neuromodulators like BOTOX® work by blocking the nerve signals to certain muscles, preventing them from contracting. BOTOX® can be used to relax wrinkles around the mouth, also known as smoker’s lines. It can also be used to allow the top lip to roll slightly upwards, giving the appearance of more voluminous lips. This technique is often called a ‘lip flip’. Learn More

Dermal fillers such as Belotero Contour and Shape and Juvéderm® Voluma, Vobella, Volift, Volite, Volux and Ultra Plus XC can provide a lasting, natural-looking solution for thinning lips, loss of lip line definition, mouth wrinkles, hollows and more. Learn More
