As we grow older, our bodies start producing less collagen and elastin, the two proteins that make sure our skin remains strong, flexible and retains its elasticity. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance which keeps our skin and soft tissues hydrated and firm, likewise decreases with age.
One of the first places to show signs of ageing is our lips, which lose their volume and appear thinner and less defined. Lips though can be naturally thin or a smile can appear uneven, a condition that can prompt a desire for fuller lips.
The safest cosmetic procedure for the restoration of volume and the creation of a fuller smile are lip fillers. A medically developed solution of Hyaluronic Acid is injected in small doses into the lips, adding volume and plumpness, enhancing the natural shape of the lips, and reducing the signs of aging.
