Like the other subtle — or not-so-subtle — changes your body goes through with age, your lips may also change appearance and look thinner as you get older. You might develop vertical lip lines, notice volume loss, and generally have drier, less supple lips than you did when you were younger.
Although genetics determine the shape and fullness of your lips, you can attribute thinning lips to the natural decline of collagen and hyaluronic acid production — the elements that keep your lips plump and moist from the inside out.
As you get older, for the same reasons your skin becomes less elastic and starts to sag, your lips also appear thinner and less voluminous. As collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases, your skin, including your lips, has less of a support structure. Combine this with sun exposure, dehydration, and even drinking from a straw, and you could end up with thin, wrinkled lips.
Thankfully, you don’t have to live with thinning lips: there’s Juvéderm®. This hyaluronic acid dermal filler can smooth lip lines and add volume. And, when you allow our expert medical aesthetics nurse, Eugenia Berchenko, RN, BSN, to customize your Juvéderm treatment at Face Place, in West Hollywood, California, you’ll absolutely love your fuller, younger-looking lips.
Your Juvéderm lip solutions
When you come to Face Place for thinning lips, Eugenia examines your lips and talks to you about your aesthetic goals so she can tailor a Juvéderm lip filler treatment just for you. If you’re concerned about vertical lip lines, Eugenia may recommend Juvéderm Volbella® XC, which can soften the appearance of these lines for up to a year.
If thinning lips are your concern, Eugenia may recommend Juvéderm Ultra XC for added volume and plumper lips. Juvéderm Ultra XC also smoothes smile lines around your nose and mouth, and this treatment also lasts up to a year.
Both Juvéderm Volbella XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC contain hyaluronic acid, similar to the natural hyaluronic acid your body produces. It improves volume and can enhance the shape of your mouth while filling in lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
Is it really that simple to get fuller lips?
The short answer is: Yes! It’s fairly simple to get more voluminous lips with Juvéderm under Eugenia’s expert care. She determines the number of injections you need to achieve optimal, long-lasting results.
After your lip injections, it’s a good idea to keep your lips moisturized and your body hydrated. Protect your lips from the sun and avoid drinking from a straw to maintain the effects of your Juvéderm injections over time. Eugenia can create a schedule for you to come back for a touch-up treatment so you can maintain your desired results.
