While some of us are simply born with thinner lips than others, a loss of volume in the lips is also a natural result of the ageing process, leading many people to seek out lip enhancement later in life. As we age, our bodies lose facial fat and produce less collagen – a protein responsible for supporting soft tissue and giving lips their fullness. This collagen breakdown and subsequent thinning of the lips can be exacerbated by sun exposure.
The ageing process also sees the development of those unsightly vertical lip lines which arise after years of repetitive pursing of the lips – whether that be from drinking through a straw or smoking a cigarette. Smokers will typically see these lines develop earlier, especially as smoking also speeds up wrinkle formation and a loss of skin tone.
Wondering “how can I restore lip volume in my area?” Continue reading to find out how Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic can assist with lip fillers at our Melbourne CBD, Hawthorn, Mt Waverley and Viewbank clinics.
At the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic, we offer dermal fillers as a safe and immediately effective way to enhance lips that have lost their fullness. These enhancement fillers contain a compound that naturally occurs in the skin and is responsible for aiding moisture retention and tissue repair, holding together collagen and elastin, providing cushioning, and protecting against microorganisms.
Dermal lip fillers use this incredible natural compound to firm and plump the lips without creating an artificial look. The procedure requires no downtime and produces instant results that can last up to 12 months, depending on the treatment. Although results are long-lasting, they are not permanent, which gives you unparalleled flexibility with your look.
The Dermal fillers we use in our Melbourne clinics contain no animal substances or toxins, and should not affect your ability to form facial expressions. And because they require no pre-testing, treatment can begin immediately.
