Thin Lips
Causes and treatments

Thin lips refer to the lack of fullness and volume in the lips, often resulting from factors such as collagen depletion, muscle fatigue, and environmental influences. Ageing leads to a breakdown of collagen, while sun exposure and smoking accelerate this process, further contributing to thinner lips. Additionally, genetic predisposition and certain sleeping positions may play a role in the formation of thin lips. Dr Bravis offers advanced treatments and techniques designed to add volume to the lips and reduce overall signs of ageing.

Symptoms and causes

Thin lips are a common cosmetic concern experienced by many individuals. While some people naturally have thinner lips, various factors such as ageing, sun exposure, and smoking can contribute to their development.

  • Thin lips lack fullness and may appear flat or narrow.
  • Ageing and collagen depletion can cause the development of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips.
  • Thin lips may experience dryness, itching, or burning sensations, exacerbating their appearance.
