Over 40: Lip Injections That Look and Feel As Natural As Your Own

Lip Injections Can Give You A More Youthful Appearance
As we enter our 40’s the lips can undergo a number of unflattering changes that can make us look older and less attractive. The most notable change is decrease in volume and projection. Loss of skin plumpness is another common concern, making the lips look dry, shriveled and weathered.

Vertical smoker’s lines can make an appearance as well, even in someone who has never smoked a cigarette in their lives. Simply engaging in everyday activities such as drinking wine, pursing or laughing can result in loss of collagen. Fortunately, lip injections with dermal filler can restore the over-40-lips to their more vibrant days.

Technique Matters When It Comes to Natural Looking Lips
The number one consideration for correcting the aging mouth is not to have the patient look ‘done’ or fake. Injection techniques that focus on reinforcing the Vermillion border with a structured product like Juvederm Volift can help restore the youthful contours and definition lost with age without adding considerable volume.

Dermal fillers such as Volbella can be injected in the fleshy part of the lips, adding hydration while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, non cross-linked hyaluronic acid products are highly effective for treating smoker’s lines as they tend to be better for filling in the superficial epidermal layers.

Lip injections can look and feel natural, soft and beautiful if done right. Fortunately, lips fillers and techniques have evolved in a positive direction over the last ten years. The ‘trout pout’ is largely a thing of the past as long as the injector is highly qualified and experienced. The consultation process is the most important part of the lip injection process because it will ensure the desired outcome.
