Whether nature failed to bless you with full, luscious lips or the plump lips of your youth have “deflated” over time, you can now get that coveted “bee-stung” look without the stinger! Our Beverly Hills patients love lip injections because they are a quick and easy way to enhance your overall appearance and boost your self-confidence.
What causes our lips to thin out and lose fat as we age?
Lips lose their volume due to reduced elastin and collagen production. Lack of moisture and hydration can also cause lips to become thinner and less plump as part of the natural aging process. Factors including excess sun exposure, smoking, genetics, bone loss, and hormonal imbalances can also contribute to thinner lips.
Healthy lifestyle behaviors such as not smoking and protecting skin from harmful UV rays can help slow down the thinning of lips. Those who are unable to maintain full, plump lips can restore volume to their lips using cosmetic procedures such as lip augmentation and dermal fillers.
