Facts About Lips:
Lips get thinner as you age
Lips get their shape in part from collagen. But as the body ages, the body produces less of this critical protein, and the lips start to lose their plumpness. The thinner and more wrinkled the lips become with age, weather, sun, smoking, the deeper the creases around your mouth get. As the natural Collagen and Elastin, which give your lips a pouty shape, break down over time, the lines seem to just settle in. Once the lines become etched into your skin, there's less definition and is a dead giveaway about your age.
The fastest way to get those luscious lips back to your teenage years is by using Juvederm. Found naturally within the body, hyaluronic acid binds 1,000 times it's weight in moisture to the skin giving the appearance of fullness. Juvederm is hyaluronic acid and through these injections you'll be able to restore your lips to their pouty best. We can also fill those troublesome vertical lines around the mouth and the naso-labial folds (the parenthesis beside your nostrils). Within an hour, you'll be able to proceed with the rest of your day with very little inflammation or discomfort.
