One body part that shows the common signs of aging is the face, particularly the lip area. The deep, vertical lines above the lips and overall skin sagging around the area drive many men and women to seek lip wrinkle treatments.
What Causes Lip Wrinkles?
Lesser Production of Collagen
A constant decrease in collagen production happens as we age. About one percent less collagen every year is produced after the age of 20. The result is thinning, less elastic, and sagging skin.
Chronic Skin Dryness
Aging skin also results in lesser oil production. When this happens, the skin becomes more prone to chronic dryness that eventually leads to lip wrinkles.
Aside from the natural signs of aging, lip wrinkles can show prematurely due to lifestyle choices. The lips are particularly susceptible to wrinkling because of their exposure to harmful elements, such as constant exposure to the sun’s UV rays and smoking, which causes smoker’s lines.
Lip Care Neglect
Many people neglect lip care despite using the lips for major human activities, like eating, drinking, and speaking. While applying sunscreen and moisturisers is part of a daily routine, along with having facial treatments regularly, the lips are often not given the care they deserve.
Lip Wrinkle Treatments For Beautiful Lips
Cosmetic Skin Therapies offers several lip wrinkle treatments. Our medical professionals can recommend the following depending on the existing lip wrinkle condition and your desired outcome.
Anti Wrinkle Treatment works best for correcting fine lines and wrinkles around the lips caused by muscle movement like pouting.
Dermal Fillers Treatment is also a popular cosmetic injectable procedure to restore volume and add plumpness to the lips, making cutaneous upper lip lines or smokers lines less noticeable.
Platelet Rich Plasma involves injecting your platelets into the surface layer of skin to stimulate collagen production. With more collagen, the skin becomes more elastic, and the lip wrinkles begin to flatten out.
Do These At Home To Avoid Lip Wrinkles
Although the results are not long term, there are many things you can do regularly to care for your lips and avoid lip wrinkles. Here are some of them:
- Apply sunscreen around the lips.
- Use a lip balm to prevent the drying effect.
- Exfoliate your skin and lips regularly.
- Massage the lip area with Vitamin E oil.
- Take collagen supplements.
- Drink lots of water to keep skin hydrated.
