In time, the lips inevitably tend to dry out and lose volume, giving them a finer appearance and a less sharp contour. They can look unhappy and severe, causing a lot of hang-ups.
It is possible to fix this by redefining the Cupid's Arc, the curve of the upper lips, or by treating the shape of the lips to enhance the definition and contour of the lips.
Lip enhancement: what is it?
For some people, too thin lips can cause insecurities and, particularly for women, a lack of femininity. Lips that are too thin are lips that are not well defined, deemed to be too thin, slight or asymmetrical.
Too small lips are also seen as a sign of old age and end up making the face appear older and sad. In general, both lips are affected by the lack of volume. It can happen, however, that this phenomenon happens on one side, on only one of the two lips.
It is thus not unusual for some people to use aesthetic medicine treatments or sometimes cosmetic surgery.
Lip enhancement: why?
Loss of lip volume can happen in both men and women. Indeed, the lips may be too thin for many reasons:
- Heredity: Certain people naturally have thinner, less well-defined lips. It is also not rare for these people to choose to undergo cosmetic surgery in order to have fuller lips.
- Age: there is a loss of elasticity and firmness in the skin, particularly on the face, over time. This causes a loss of volume of the lip and sagging of the skin on the face.
- Smoking: Nicotine has a detrimental effect on the hyaluronic acid responsible for hydration of the skin. Cigarettes thus appear to precipitate the loss of lip volume, but also the aging process of the lips.
- Exposure to the sun: repeated exposure to the sun causes the skin to dry and the mouth to lose volume. Then the lips get thinner and the skin begins to wrinkle more easily.
In this way, to restore their youthful look, some people no longer hesitate to take a plunge into surgery or aesthetic medicine.
Lip enhancement: how to reshape your lips?
Medicine and cosmetic surgery can offer a simple and efficient solution to the lack of lip volume. Then you'll have a broad, reshaped mouth.
In addition, one of the most widely used techniques for plumping the lips is the injection of hyaluronic acid, which restores volume to the lips and corrects any asymmetry.
As a result, treatment with aesthetics or cosmetic surgery can result in two things:
- The impact on volume: by fat injections (lipofilling) or by filling products which increase the volume of the lips;
- The effects on the wrinkles: the lifting of the lips or even mesotherapy can have a smoothing effect on the wrinkles around the lips.
