Thickening treatments are available for lips that are especially thin. Aging causes fine lines and wrinkles and the vertical wrinkles, especially in women who smoke.
Lips can be thickened with the injection of synthetic fillers. Choice of filler is important. Hyaluronic acid fillers are an ideal choice. They are not permanent and treatment is usually given every six months to one year. Filling can also be autologous, or from the patients own fatty tissue. This is also a good option in some cases.
Fine wrinkles around the lips can be treated with minimally invasive procedures such as laser, treatments, chemical peels or dermabrasion.
