Factors To Consider - Tapan Patel amended 690x960

Factors To Consider

Ageing – as we age, collagen and elastin, proteins that control firmness and elasticity of the skin and support soft tissue, break down. The muscles around the mouth also become thinner and lose definition.

UV exposure – the sun’s rays and rays from tanning beds both encourage the breakdown of collagen,

Dehydration – when lips don’t have moisture, they dry out and shrink, and as they are always exposed, they are prone to suffering damage.

Pursing or puckering – repetitive facial movements can cause wrinkles, making the mouth appear smaller, and speeding up natural process by which the lip curls in on itself as we age.

Smoking – smoking affects the lips in two ways; firstly through the toxins in smoke, which encourage the breakdown of collagen. Secondly, the act of pursing lips in the process of smoking causes wrinkles, making the mouth appear smaller.

Genetics – thin lips are a recessive trait inherited from both parents.
