Thin Lips


Thin lips are a common sign of ageing. Flat, thin lips appear over time due to lost volume in the surrounding area. Weak and thin lips add to the appearance of wrinkles and creases near the mouth, including smoker’s lines. Thin lips often make you look older than you are.

Depleted jaw bone density is a frequent concern associated with ageing, and this is common when you have underlying dental problems. This bone loss leads to a lack of support for facial features, including lips.

You may assume the only way to combat thin lips is to get a surgical facelift; however, there are less invasive ways. Non-surgical procedures using dermal fillers restore lost volume and give you a renewed, youthful appearance.


Creating Fuller Lips

To plump your thin lips, we’ll start with an assessment of your facial structures. We need to identify the areas that lack the fats and proteins that give your lips a natural lift. This information will feed your tailored treatment plan.

Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to plump and rehydrate your skin. The result of us injecting fillers into affected areas is a natural-looking increase in volume. Although subtle, you’ll notice the difference in your lips immediately.

Your treatment will consist of several injections and will take around 30 minutes. Lip filler treatment is pain and discomfort-free, with no downtime following the procedure. Any swelling or redness around your lips should pass within days.

I visited Megna for Invisalign treatment and I am incredibly impressed by the quality of treatment and care she has showed. It has been 12 weeks since I started the treatment and have noticed a significant change to my smile. She answers any questions I have and I can see she loves what she does through her diligence in planning my (complex) case!

Beaut practice and welcoming staff! Had a couple composite fillings with Dr Deryn and couldn’t be happier. I’m usually anxious when visiting the dentist but Deryn and Natascha made my experience feel relaxed and comfortable. Staff at front desk are lovely and put me at ease from the get go – thank you Tracey, Eloise and Colette for your support ❤️

Frequently asked questions

What Causes Thin Lips?

As we age, our lips thin. Several factors could contribute to this, including:

  • Collagen levels – Ageing contributes to decreased collagen production
  • Genetics – Some people naturally have thin or plump lips
  • Smoking – Tobacco decreases oxygen getting to your lip tissues
  • Sun exposure – UV rays break down collagen in your skin
  • Bone loss – Depleted density in underlying bones affects your facial support
Do Dermal Fillers Hurt?

No. Before your filler injection, we’ll numb the treatment site. You’ll experience slight swelling and redness after treatment, but this soon passes.

How Long Do the Effects Of Dermal Fillers Last?

You’ll instantly see the changes from your dermal filler treatment. Over time, your body will naturally break the filler down. Without topping up the filler with further injections, your lips may thin.

A brief appointment to tweak your filler treatment every 6 – 12 months will maintain excellent results.
