Thick, big lips have long been a valued attribute throughout human history. Many of us go to great lengths to acheive the perfect pucker, but what if you glance in the mirror one morning and notice that your lips are thinned? You begin to wonder if you’re hallucinating or if your once plump lips have genuinely thinned away. Lips thin out with age, believe it or not. Our lips are lush and kissable when we are young, but that plumpness gently but steadily fades as we get older. You don’t have to spend your golden years with thin, flat lips, which is the good news. Everyone has access to a variety of treatment choices for thinning lips.

#1 Topical Cream

Using certain lotions, you can make your lips appear more prominent. Lips that are well-moisturised and glowing appear fuller and healthier. Retinoids and other serums can also lessen the appearance of tiny wrinkles around the mouth, giving the lips a more puckered and sunken-in appearance. Some topical treatments work by delivering a healthy amount of vitamins to the lips, allowing them to plump up due to increased blood flow. Consult your dermatologist to determine the most appropriate topical treatment for you.

#2 Botox

Botox can be used to raise the area around the mouth, reduce wrinkles, and give the illusion of bigger lips by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is usually injected into the vertical lines on the sides of the mouth by an expert physician. When these lines are removed, the mouth area appears instantaneously younger.

#3 Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler Injections

HA is a naturally occurring molecule that gives our joints and cartilage flexibility and lubrication. It’s also found in our skin, where it promotes hydration and fullness, making it ideal for use as a lip filler. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips, it fills in the wrinkle, giving the lips a thicker, fuller appearance.

#4 Fat Injection

A plastic surgeon can harvest autologous fat from various parts of your body and inject it into your lips using autologous fat. The results are permanent because this isn’t a filler but actual body fat. However, keep in mind that some of the injected fat may be absorbed by your body, but your lips will still be more extensive.

#5 Laser Therapy

You might opt for laser plumping as a less intrusive, more modern option. An Nd: YAG laser delivers laser heat energy to the target area in this treatment method. This heat promotes collagen formation by going beyond the skin’s surface. As a result, lips swell and smooth out naturally when collagen production kicks in.

#6 Topical Products

Look for lip treatments that raise epidermal water content and boost collagen formation to boost lip plumpness. Also, look for humectants like hyaluronic acid, which enhances water content, hydrates to prevent cracking, and soothes skin irritation. 

#7 Oligopeptides 

Natural amino acids called oligopeptides to assist and feed the body’s collagen formation. In a 28-day study, oligopeptides reduced lip creases by 29% and increased lip volume by 40%.

#8 MoisturisingMoisturising Oils

Oils act as a barrier between the outside world and the inside world. Lips are hydrated, soothed, and rejuvenated, and they are protected from the environment. Lips seem plumper and fuller with ylang-ylang flower oil and jojoba oil products. 

#9 Hydration 

Hydration is a simple technique to fill up your lips; consider your complete body and your lips when doing so. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, even if you don’t feel thirsty, and consume high in moisture meals. Lips can become dry due to sun exposure and cold, dry weather. As a result, wear a protective lip balm with an SPF to help keep your lips moisturised.

#10 Stop puckering 

Lip lines and creases can make them appear smaller and older. The less you pucker your lips; the less likely wrinkles will form around your lips. Avoid straws, cigarettes, and other anxiety-inducing substances. Stress might cause you to pucker your lips, bite the inside of your mouth, or pick at the skin surrounding your mouth, causing wrinkles and lines to form. 

#11 Makeup 

You can use makeup to make your lips appear larger. Some lip cosmetics contain substances that hurt the lips slightly (such as menthol or cinnamon oil), increasing blood flow and plumping the lips. These products cause a minor stinging sensation, indicating that they are doing their job. For a more polished look, use a lip liner to outline your natural lip margins and then fill in your lips. 

#12 Dermal fillers 

Dermal fillers are a popular approach to add volume, smooth skin, and erase fine lines and wrinkles. Lip injections are a non-invasive technique to replenish the collagen and fat that your face loses as you grow older. HA fillers, which operate by attaching to water molecules in the skin, are presently the most common.

#13 Lip Lifting 

The top half of your upper lip is lifted towards your nose with a lip lift, giving your lip a bigger appearance. There are several varieties of lift lips, each of which includes minor incisions in various regions of the face, such as the nostrils and mouth corners.
