Cause

The cause of lines in the lips can be from many reasons. As we age, collagen production slows, causing volume loss leading to lines and wrinkles. In other cases, this is caused by environmental factors such as pollution and smoking.

Some patients come to us to balance their lips as they are not always perfectly symmetrical and balanced. Fillers are used here to balance and restore symmetry to the lip area and so restore facial harmony.

Treatment

At Health & Aesthetics, we use fillers to restore lost volume to the lips. The brand we use is Belotero Lips due to its lower density to Juvederm. Belotero is FDA approved, meaning its safety and efficacy have been proven, but with a lower density to Juvederm, it is a better filling option for the lip area. It still contains lidocaine, like Juvederm, to make the procedure more comfortable. Belotero Lips uses two different densities of fillers to help contour and shape the lips.

We also highly recommend Ultherapy for lip lines. Ultherapy is a micro-focused ultrasound that causes micro-wounds deep below the skin to promote the production of collagen and elastin. This is a highly effective treatment to address lines and wrinkles.

We now have the ‘Tailored Lip Lift‘ created using the Alma Hybrid laser. It’s the filler alternative to plumping, rehydrating your lips. The C02 laser causes micro-injuries to the lip skin, which in turn stimulates your own collagen-making fibroblasts. You’ll see an immediate improvement in some of the common signs of lip ageing: barcode lines, lip wrinkles, and a damaged skin barrier that makes your lips dry and less plump!
