Lips

Our lips are one of the most vulnerable areas for ageing, as the skin is very thin. Don’t let ageing skin ruin your beautiful smile.

The Cause

The skin on your lips is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. However, the skin loses hyaluronic acid over time, and lines begin to appear around the mouth.

The Effect

The loss of hyaluronic acid leads to the appearance of wrinkles and the loss of fullness to our lips. As our lips become thinner, they lose volume and lack definition. We can develop vertical, or “marionette”, lines around the mouth, which can form at the corners going down to the chin or we can even develop a droop to the corners of the mouth, giving your lips a sad appearance.
