Lips Through The Ages

Bat your lashes all you want, but lips draw the most attention. Lips can pout, entice, and excite. Have your lips ever been as alluring as you’d like? Maybe they aren’t what they once were?

With a 93% patient satisfaction rating, lip enhancement can be beneficial at any and every age. Subtle enhancements with nonsurgical treatments can make a significant and positive change to one’s overall look.

In our 20s, Lip enhancements are done more commonly to remedy natural asymmetry, super thin lips or when the corners droop down, to help turn that frown upside down. Thankfully dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can be used to address any of these issues.

In our 30s, the loss of collagen and elastin can contribute to wrinkles on and around the lips. Years of sun exposure with limited lip protection, can also do some heavy duty damage. Specialty fillers like Restylane Silk and Belotero, can help to soften the appearance of the lines and even halt them from getting worse.  

With that in mind, in our 40s, treatments are used to counteract the signs of aging. Laugh lines are becoming more pronounced, and the lip shape itself, as well as areas around the lips, are starting to change structurally. The corners of our mouths become weaker, drawing the mouth downwards even farther. This may be time to consider other dermal fillers and/or treatment options for the rest of your facial features, so that you can create a good support system for your enhancements.

Blue’s providers elegantly use artistry with a mix of fillers and neurotoxins to help recreate the Cupid’s bow, the curve at top of the lip, and the vertical lines that run from the base of the nose to the top points of the lips, restoring definition. Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane Lyft are very popular choices for this look!

In our 50s, there are overall changes to your entire visage that may or may not be pleasing to the eye. The lack of elasticity in the skin (due to the loss of collagen and elastin) and incremental drooping that starts mid-face, can actually lengthen the space between the nose and lips meaning that, with time, the lips themselves have in fact drooped (just like everything else).

In our 60s and Beyond: Maybe you’ve done treatments for years. Or maybe you’re just starting out. Reconstructing key areas, including restoring the fullness of the lips and facial structures around the mouth, are crucial at this stage in life. There is such a thing as being conservative, however it’s important to not sell yourself short by under treating either.  

While tweaks and touches in our 20s and 30s are focused more on correcting that which nature did not naturally bestow upon us, the focus in our 40s, 50s, and beyond is essentially to restore to our previously youthful appearance.

Whether we’re searching for the perfect lips we once had, or one we never had in the first place, nonsurgical solutions are as easy as stopping by. No matter what stage you find yourself in, Blue Medi Spa will consult one on one to find the solution that suits your face, and your cosmetic goals.
