Unfortunately as we age our lip shape begins to change. Most of us start to lose volume from their lips from our 40s onwards. If you are a smoker, you may also develop fine lines (smoker’s lines) along the lip lines. In addition, Some of us may also develop a “Mona Lisa Smile” when the sides of the mouth curl downwards giving the face a sad, melancholy look.
What causes loss of lip definition?
How quickly our lips lose volume is much down to genetics and the ageing process, but smoking and sun damage also play a part. Smoker’s lines are caused by constant puckering when sucking on a cigarette, while UV exposure breaks-down collagen and elastin the building blocks of youthful skin.
What are the treatments?
