Thin lips

What is it?

Particularly sensitive to the aging process, lips lose their volume and change over time. The philtrum ridges (the small relief between the nose and mouth) and the cupid’s bow gradually flatten, while small irregularities in colour may also occur.

Did you know?

Compared to the face, which can have up to 16 cellular layers, lips have only three to five. Their structure is therefore naturally finer and more fragile and blood vessels are more visible, which gives them a colour that is constantly changing according to our body temperature and our environment.

What are the causes?

Each individual has a different morphology and the morphology of the lips is no exception. Shape, volume and colour are therefore unique to the lips of each person. Nevertheless, their refinement will be accentuated by several factors:

The natural aging process

As the skin ages, the natural production of collagen and elastin slows down and cell renewal decreases: the lip contour is less defined, the colour of the lips becomes lighter and their volume diminishes.

Sun exposure

Exposure to the sun, especially if not accompanied by UV protection, causes alterations in the production of melanin, collagen and elastin, and clearly promotes lip dryness. Their tone is then reduced, their pigmentation is altered and their volume is diminished.

Tabacco use

Nicotine consumption hinders the assimilation of vitamins A and C, essential for good blood circulation, and reduces collagen and elastin production. Once cell renewal is compromised, the skin becomes drier and more sensitive to external aggressors. Gradually, the lips become thinner and their colour fades.

How to prevent?

Good hydration

In addition to adopting healthy lifestyle habits including good hydration– drinking about 1.5 L of water per day – it is essential to hydrate the lips with the application of a nourishing treatment: a moisturizing balm or serum is ideal to help maintain their natural volume, while providing an immediate soothing sensation if dryness occurs! Although used year round, specific lip care becomes essential to the winter routine, as conditions such as cold, wind, irritation of clothing and scarves and indoor heating become less gentle on the skin.

Year round sun protection

To prevent depigmentation and loss of lip volume, it is essential to protect lips with adequate sunscreen. There are also excellent mineral sunscreens designed for daily use. When moisturized and protected from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays, lips maintain long-lasting volume and elasticity.

Volumizing Injections


To compensate for the loss of volume that occurs over the years, the fillers used during injections are composed of hyaluronic acid, naturally present in the body. This smooth and fluid filling product restores volume to the lips, redefines their contours and accentuates their edges. Lips are deeply rehydrated while maintaining their natural appearance.
