Throughout history, full lips have been coveted as a sign of confidence. Even in these times of mask wearing, the desire for more full and well-defined lips persists. As a result, demand for treatments to enhance the lips has especially grown in popularity over the past two years.
Over time, the lips become thinner, the borders of the lips become less defined, and the outer corners of the lips start to droop. Why do our lips change this way as we get older?
Like lots of other parts of the body, your lips lose collagen in the underlying tissue as we age. Other factors such as smoking, excessive sun exposure, and repetitive movements like drinking from a straw can also worsen lip thinning.
The desired appearance of the lips can vary by age, gender, and ethnicity. For example, in the age of social media, many younger clients want lips that mimic the appearance of their favorite Instagram influencers.
We at Maine Laser Skin Care use the Juvederm line of fillers because of their versatility and range of choices. Juvederm Volbella is our go-to filler for the lips, as it looks and feels soft and natural after injection.
If you want lips that stand out like an Instagram star, or you want a more subtle return to the lips you had in the past, we can customize the treatment to your specifications. Since lips are so individual, a consultation prior to treatment is mandatory.
