Thin Lips: Causes, Symptoms & Treatments

at Omniya Clinic in London

What are thin lips?

Some of us are born with thin lips as a result of genetics. For all of us, our lips get thinner as a result of the natural ageing process. It’s all to do with the rate at which our body produces collagen ie it starts to slows down after the age of 20. Elastin around our lips, which gives the lips definition also falls off. As a result, our lips not only lose their plumpness, but also their shape.

What treatments are available at Omniya?

One way to temporarily improve this is through lip fillers. This is a process where the lips are injected with a gel which contains a substance similar to hyaluronic acid (which the body produces naturally). The lips become fuller and their definition starker. At the same time, it can also produce a more pronounced pout.

After receiving lip filler, it is advisable to avoid the sun, as well as the use of a sun bed, steam room or sauna – especially if there is slight swelling in the lips. Alcohol should also be avoided for 24 hours, as should strenuous exercise.

Both women and men – young and old – receive lip filler treatments, with sessions taking from half an hour depending on how many injections are required.

Thin lips FAQs

Can I get lip filler during my lunch hour?

Yes, it’s possible to go straight back to work after lip filler treatments. There may be a little swelling or bruising but this should only last a few days.

When can I expect to see maximum results from my lip filler treatment?

Typically, around two weeks afterward your lip filler treatment. Top-up treatments can be carried out every 6 to 12 months.

Can I wear make-up after I've just had lip filler?

It’s best to avoid wearing it until at least 24 hours after your lip filler treatment.

How will the lip filler break down?

Lip fillers will dissolve gradually and naturally over time.
