Lip Filler and Lip Augmentation Treatments
Lips are a visible part of the body that are soft , moveable and used for eating, talking and kissing.The border around the lips is known as the vermilion border and the upper lip area border is known as cupids bow.
Small lips and thin lips can be inherited or can be as a result of aging. As we age our lips become smaller and thinner. Lips have thinner skin than the surrounding areas and less melanin ( in fair skinned people) and so appear redder as the blood appears to show more through the skin. In dark skinned people , this effect is less so as more melanin is present. Lips do not have the usual sweat glands or oils to help regulate the skin and are therefore more prone to drying out and appearing chapped.
Small lips and thin lips are not desirable by many people as full lips with a cupids bow and a defined vermilion border have often been associated with beauty and youth. The ideal size of lips have changed over the years and currently small lips are not desirable and the trend is to fuller lips.
As we age we lose fat in the face including the lips resulting in small lips that are not as desirable. In the early 19th century a variety of substances from paraffin to silicone were used to make lips appear fuller.
