Thin/Narrow Lips

Treatment options: Dermal Fillers.

Full lips with an accentuated lip border are associated with youthful appearance. The vermillion border is the outline of the lip. As we age wrinkles (peri-oral lines) can occur above the top lip (and sometimes the lower) which can disrupt this border causing it to become less defined. Lipstick "bleeding" can also be a common complaint when these wrinkles occur. The injection of a soft dermal filler into the vermillion border can return definition and make lips appear fuller. It is also possible to create a more pronounced cupids bow and philtrum with the use of dermal fillers.

If dermal fillers into the vermillion border have not enhanced the lips to the desired degree, fillers can be injected into the body of the lips to enhance their fullness. All injections into the lips are painful so a local anaesthetic cream is applied half an hour prior to treatment.

At Cyfoes Healthcare we only use dermal fillers containing Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring component of our skin responsible for skins plumpness, elasticity and hydration. These fillers are injected into the site with a fine needle. The filler is then massaged smooth to achieve the desired appearance.
