Thin Lips


Possessing full and dewy-looking lips is desirable to many people these days. They can help to create balance and harmony with other facial characteristics, provide femininity to those with this preference or help to restore a more youthful look.

Not everyone is happy with the appearance of their lips and when they are thinner or smaller than desired, and it may be nature or ageing that is the cause. Naturally thin lips are determined by one’s genes and may look similar in size and shape to one or both biological parents. Genetics can also play a part in ageing, influencing the rate at which it occurs and the pattern it’s likely to take.

It is widely known that collagen and elastin will decrease from the skin as we get older. This doesn’t just happen to certain parts of the face, it occurs all over the body, including the lips. As collagen declines, so does the volume and firmness of the lips, leading to thin lips that appear less defined and may also have small wrinkles (lip lines) around the outside of the mouth. Sun exposure, alcohol, smoking and a poor diet can contribute to the break down of collagen, leading to the early development of this concern.

The One Clinic carries out a full and thorough consultation before recommending a treatment for thin lips, where we review the facial profile as a whole. For thin lips we often suggest the application of lip fillers; specially formulated dermal fillers that can effectively add volume to this delicate feature. The product used in this treatment contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid which increases hydration and improves the texture of the skin.
