Having thick, plump lips is something that nearly all women desire to have. The natural aging process can cause the lips to begin to lose thickness and vibrance.
Starting as early as your mid 20’s, tissues, specifically collagen, begin to deteriorate and lose their ability to provide structure and healthy elasticity to the face.
Celebrities and models all seem to always have plump and healthy looking lips, but how do they do it?
The secret is in a Lips Enhancement procedure, and this type of treatment is now available to any women that is interested.
Aging and Facial Structure
Collagen and elastin are the two main proteins that provide structure and shape to your facial features. As you can see in the diagram, aging causes these proteins to shift from being organized and tightly bound to breaking apart and fracturing at the seams. These fractures and breaks cause skin to sag and present multiple wrinkles.
After these events begin to occur, collagen loses its ability perform its function.
In addition, if you are over the age of 35, it is likely your body now has a reduced ability to replace it with fresh, strong, new collagen.
In addition to a deficit of hyaluronic acid as well, skin will lose its youthful sheen and tight contour.
There are multiple options for fixing the lip volume issues that are caused by aging and environmental factors, especially those over the age of 35. By using a family of dermal fillers that incorporates hyaluronic acid, you can restore volume, moisture and the soft texture that you have been missing. Lips enhancement treatment can be used on the lips and surrounding facial areas through two types of products called Juvederm and Restylane.
Juvederm for Lips Volumization
Juvederm offers clients a chance to volumize and fill in volume in the lips that have been lost over time. With these FDA approved products, patients can experience a boost to volume and a youthful shine through the action of hyaluronic acid.
This treatment is also available in a package called Juvederm XC. This treatment is geared towards overall volume, as it fills in most thinnest lips. This product provides the deeper lips with vital minerals to get rid of lines and empty space not supported by collagen.
Restylane for Lips Enhancement
Similar to Juvederm, Restylane uses hyaluronic acid to provide moisture, contour, and volume to the lips. Aging causes pockets of fat that provide cushion and a base for nutrient production to become diminished. As a consequence, hyaluronic acid as well as collagen production is reduced, making it hard for the face, and especially lips, to retain its normal shape and contour.
Restylane is unique because it mimics your body’s natural hyaluronic acid and allows it to provide its many benefits to the skin when injected into the deeper layers of the skin.
These options are great for anyone over the age of 30 who feels like they could improve the look, feel, and shape of their lips. Juvederm and Restylane are easy, safe, and natural treatment options that utilize the critical components of natural skin wellness to plump and add healthy volume to the lips.
