How to reduce ageing lips

Posted on: 31st May 2015

The Signs of Ageing on Your Lips

Whilst it’s your mouth that does the talking, the last thing you
want it to do is give away your age, but unfortunately that’s something it’s
more than capable of doing.

Reduced lip volume, dry skin and pucker lines around the lips
can age the face considerably, and that’s before we’ve even considered the nose
to mouth folds and marionette lines that can add to the problem.

Thankfully however, there’s now plenty that can be done to both
hold back and improve the signs of ageing in this part of your face, so that
you’ll be able to enjoy younger, plumper lips for longer.Take a look at these tips and kiss ageing lips goodbye.

Keep your lips hydrated.Dry, flaky lips are not only uncomfortable, they look thinner
than their well hydrated counterparts, and it’s this thinness that makes lips
appear older.The skin produces less oil as we age, and this, coupled with the
fact that the lips have no protective epidermal layer, means that they’re a
prime area for moisture loss.Apart from staying well hydrated by drinking plenty of water
(something we can’t emphasise highly enough) balms are a very important way of
maintaining moisture in the lips. A rich moisturising balm that contains a high
SPF will help the lips appear smooth, even and full.

Fine Lines around Your Mouth

Fine lines around the lips, or the ‘smokers pout’ as it’s come
to be known are mainly (although not always) caused by smoking. The lines are
due to the repetitive pursing of the lips, and are just one of the innumerable
negative effects of this addiction.

If you do smoke, quitting is the single most effective thing you
can do to reduce the signs of ageing on your lips, but anyone interested in
fighting the effects of ageing already knows that smoking accelerates the
ageing process considerably.

Using sunscreen as well as a collagen boosting treatment around
your mouth can slow the etching effect, as will creams and gels that contain
hyaluronic acid to plump up fine lines. Image Skincare have an amazing lip Enhancement
Complex that contain peptides that are clinically proven to promote collagen
production and reduce the lines on the lips and we sell this in our Clinic.

Cosmetic Procedures for a Perfect Pout

If it’s too late for prevention, there are plenty of
non-surgical cosmetic procedures that will reduce the signs of ageing in the
lips considerably.

Injectable dermal fillers can help both increase lip volume and
lessen the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth, but different fillers do
this in different types of ways, each more particularly suited to individual
problems. Often associated with the ‘trout pout’, fillers can, in fact, be used
in a variety of ways to simply support and restore the lips, hydrate and smooth
them, or tweak shape and volume. It’s important to remember, however, that it’s
essential that you see a qualified professional when considering dermal
fillers, as they will be able to advise you on the best kind for your case.

Laser resurfacing,Deep chemical peels and dermabrasion can also
help considerably when it comes to the appearance of lines around the mouth.
The heat generated by lasers encourages collagen production in the deeper
layers of the skin, which will plump up and smooth out wrinkles, whereas
dermabrasion and deep peels work by removing the top layer of the skin to
reduce the depth of wrinkles and encourage the production of new, smooth skin.

We carry out Lip Peels and Dermabrasion at our Clinic to
encourage collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin around the
