Shrinking Lips

by Terri Whiting

Dear Botoxgirl,

I am 55 years old and my lips are shrinking! Someone told me I can use Botox in my lips?

Hi C.C.

You would not want to use Botox directly into the lips. You can put Botox above your lip to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

You can also use Botox in addition to lip injections.

If you use Botox above the lip you can accomplish several things such as decreasing the appearance of a “gummy” smile. You can make the top lip “pop” as I call it: the top lip just lifts slightly to add a little curl at the edges. It adds to the effect when using lip fillers.

A lot of women are afraid to use fillers in their lips. The lips are sensuous and seductive. Our eyes are drawn to the lips, and eyes, as we look at a woman. As we age the lips, for lack of a better term, shrink. They are still there, but they become wrinkled and look shriveled. How fortunate we are in today’s day and age to be able to bring back the youthfulness of your looks instantaneously with fillers. Don’t be afraid to use fillers in your lips, they will only enhance and add to the beauty and attractiveness of your lips.
