Whether genetic or the result of age, thin lips can have a detrimental effect on a person’s self-confidence. With age comes many things including a loss of volume in the lips, which often leads them to become noticeably thinner. As a focal point of the face, this can easily make an individual look much older than they are but this can be remedied with the help of talented professionals, such as those at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham.
The main reason why lips become thin over time is most likely due to the loss of collagen – a key structural protein in the skin that diminishes over time. When supplies of collagen start to drop, many notice a number of changes and one of them is thin lips. They may lose their shape or appear less plump as they have done in the past, resulting in decreased confidence and an unwillingness to partake in social activities.
Additionally, thinning lips can also be attributed to a loss of bone density, which also decreases with age. It can cause an individual’s face to appear more hollow, which means a person’s facial structure simply might not be able to support the lips as well as it once did.
As well as factors related to ageing, thinner than average lips might be genetic. Regardless, lips that are thin and flat can age the face as they give the appearance of a sullen mood and create a less defined facial profile. However, lip fillers are able to resolve these concerns in no time at all.
Secret Aesthetics only uses premium products in all of their procedures and their hyaluronic acid (HA) lip fillers are no exception. This substance is one that occurs naturally in the body and it works alongside collagen and elastin fibres to plump thin lips to provide natural-looking results. A clinical-grade gel form of HA is used in this procedure, which draws water to the surface of the skin to combine with HA molecules and improve the appearance of the lips.
Following a consultation with one of the professionals at Secret Aesthetics, a facial analysis will be performed and your medical history will be considered to decide whether or not this is a suitable procedure given your individual circumstances. As well as this, personal expectations will be taken into account to ensure that Secret Aesthetics is able to meet your desires.
Following this, if it is deemed that lip fillers are the most appropriate method to treat your thin lips, they will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure minimal discomfort is felt during the procedure itself. In total, the actual treatment takes around 15 minutes.
Some mild bruising and swelling may occur at the points of injection but this should not be a cause for concern and it will fade within a few days. Limiting alcohol consumption and smoking for at least 48 hours following lip filler treatment will ensure optimal results and reduce any other potential side effects. This will be discussed prior to the procedure. Results can be seen immediately and they will last for around 12 months. It is important to note that as hyaluronic naturally occurs in the body, it will be broken down naturally too.
Lip filler is a cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found within the body, into the lips. It can be used to correct your lip shape, restore volume, and smooth out wrinkles.
