We tend to instinctually focus on others’ lips when we’re speaking to them. This is a natural habit that can leave some of us feeling vulnerable if we’re not entirely happy with our lip size. The truth is, having thin lips is nothing to worry about, but if you’re still feeling down, we can help. At sAge, we offer dermal filler injections to give your lips some added oomph. Get in touch with a sAge location near you to learn more.
What Causes Thin Lips?
Our lip size and shape change naturally over time as our bodies produce less collagen. Some minor factors outside of genetics and natural aging that contribute to thinner lips include UV exposure from the sun, smoking, kissing, and even drinking through a straw. Without treatment, the best we can do to maintain lip size is to drink water to stay hydrated. However, that can only get us so far.
What Are the Treatment Options?
Dermal fillers stand as one of the most effective methods of addressing thin lips and restoring their fullness. Most of our fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance found in the human body.
When injected properly, HA enhances the plumpness of your lips without giving you an exaggerated appearance. Here at sAge, we always strive for the natural look – providing you with subtle, measured results so that you look beautiful, not artificial.
What to Expect
Some results can be seen right after a dermal filler injection. However, it takes approximately 24-48 hours for the filler to take full effect. After that, it may take several weeks for it to settle fully. Afterward, you can enjoy your beautiful lips for 6-12 months. This time can vary based on your chosen filler and unique needs. We will discuss what you can expect in greater detail during your visit.
