Your whole body changes as you get older. When we are still young, these changes are often welcome. However, as we age it feels harder and harder to keep our bodies healthy and vibrant. Our lips are particularly vulnerable to showing signs of age. They have an especially thin outer layer, which gets even thinner with each passing year.
Our skin’s structure gradually breaks down as we age. While this process occurs all over our body (giving us wrinkles, frail skin, and ultimately visible sagging skin), it’s particularly noticeable on our lips. The structures that give our lips their full, plump shape begin to wear down over time. This often leads to the corners of our mouths drooping down in a permanent frown, the upper lip losing its distinctive v-shaped area (called Cupid’s Bow) and our lips losing their fullness and definition. Additionally, vertical lines can often appear, even among non-smokers.
Enverus Medical dermatology clinic has helped many clients slow down this aging process. By applying dermal fillers, we are able to add back volume and definition to lips. While dermal fillers can return sagging lips to their rightful glory, they can also be used for more subtle applications like smoothing fine lines.
There are a variety of factors that can contribute to how your lips age. While you can avoid sun exposure and smoking, there is not a lot you can do about genetics, or the aging process itself. Luckily, there have been lots of advances in medicine over the past century. Armed with dermal fillers and other technology, we are able to rejuvenate and replenish lips at any step of the aging process. Our natural injectable fillers give your lips the shape you want, but they are still soft and pliable to the touch. They will feel perfectly natural!
Lip rejuvenation is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic procedures we perform at the Enverus Medical dermatology clinic. We are happy to have served all of our clients by giving them the healthy and beautiful lips they deserve!
