Lets talk about lips

our treatment of the week.

The Lip Contouring treatment will help to restore colour to your lips & increase the volume naturally.

Why do lips become thinner as we age?

When the localised collagen in the lips becomes depleted, thinning will start to take place. As we age the bone density in our body decreases. This can then be seen in the face and lips as the structure is less supported.

What factors will affect the colour of my lips?

The following factors might have a contributing effect on the discolouration in lips:

  • Smoking
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Anaemia
  • Severe illness
  • Medication

How can I keep my lips healthy?

The weather and what you apply to your lips are the two biggest factors that influence your lips especially during the dry winter months. Sometimes the only thing that seems to help is licking them, it doesn’t.

Treatment to restore volume & colour in your lips:

At De la Belle we offer a Lip Contouring treatment that is made up of active ingredients that are dedicated to improving the definition and colour of your lips.

With the use of hyaluronic acid and acetyl hexapeptide – 38 (the volume booster) it will increase the volume and hydration in your lips.

Because the peptide has a target action enhancing adipogenesis rate, it will lead to a volume growth in your lips. Active ingredients such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), ginkgo and mustard sprout extracts will boost the blood circulation to improve the colour of your lips.

7 Tips to keep your lips hydrated & protected:

  • Exfoliate your lips once a week.
  • Ensure to drink plenty of water.
  • Use vitamin E capsules to generate new skin cells.
  • Use lip balm with base ingredients such as shea butter or cocoa butter.
  • Remember to also apply SPF daily.
  • Boost circulation with Peppermint oil.
  • Hydrate your lips with aloe vera.

There are many factors that affect the volume and colour of our lips. Luckily we are able to do needleless mesotherapy treatments to naturally enhance and restore the volume and colour to our lips.
