How Age Changes the Lips and What Can Be Done About It

Aging changes every aspect of your face and body, and your lips are not excluded. Age affects your lips in two main ways, and both of them are completely correctable with an easy injection. Here’s what you need to know about how age affects the lips and what you can do about it.

Lip Lines

Aging can often cause you to develop vertical lines on your upper lip, which sometimes extend above your lip, especially when lips are pursed. Smoking can also cause lip lines to worsen, as can simple genetics. When lip lines become severe, they affect the way your lipstick or lip gloss looks and can make you appear years older than you really are.

Thin Lips

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, which are necessary for skin to look full and plump. The lips are no exception. Without collagen production, the lips can lose their fullness and become very thin. If you want lips that are fuller, more youthful, and more kissable, there is a solution.

The Solution

There are a lot of solutions out there for rejuvenating or augmenting your lips. One of the best solutions is Juvederm Volbella. Volbella is an injectable dermal filler that is designed specifically for use with the lips. It works in two different ways. It smooths out lip lines while also filling out the lips and making them plump and full once more. The treatment lasts about six months, and there is no downtime.
