What Happens to the Lips and Mouth Area as We Age?

As we age, all of our skin changes as it loses volume and elasticity. Your lips are no different! Over the years, you may start to notice changes in the lips and mouth area. This is natural and happens to everyone. But if you’re concerned about visible changes to the lips, know that cosmetic treatments are available at Ultimate Images Cosmetic Medical Center to rejuvenate the mouth area. 

The Lips Thin with Age

When girls reach age 14 and boys reach age 16, the lips have reached their full thickness. From this point on, the lips slowly begin to lose thickness and volume. You may notice that the lips flatten and become less visible, especially when you smile. This changes the appearance of your smile, with the teeth and gums becoming more prominent.  Read More
