What Are the Best Collagen Lip Enhancements for Every Age?
Everyone wants to look and feel their best, no matter their age. And while our body’s natural production of collagen (the protein responsible for giving our skin its structure and fullness), begins to decrease with age, many younger women seek lip enhancements for a variety of reasons as well. The key is to choose the right plastic surgeon to work with to ensure that you’re getting the best results to suit your unique needs and goals. When performed by a skilled professional, lip injections can help to boost your self-confidence and improve the way you project yourself to the world.
If you’re unsure of what collagen lip enhancement treatment might be right for you, take a look at our breakdown of the best options to consider for your age group:
In Your 20s
People in their 20s who seek cosmetic lip treatments typically wish to enhance some genetic element of their lips that may leave them feeling self-conscious or otherwise negative about their appearance. Asymmetry or thinness in the lips are common concerns for some women in their 20s, as well as lips that may make them appear sad or angry while at rest. Juvéderm injections can help to subtly plump the lips, as well as correct any asymmetry or other unwanted lip features. (Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery)
In Your 30s
This is the stage of life when collagen production, as mentioned earlier, begins to decline. You may notice the first sign of this aspect of the aging process in the thinning of your lips. But don’t worry, Juvéderm injections can help to give your lips a boost of volume, while still maintaining a natural, subtle look. (American Journal of Pathology)
In Your 40s
While there can be so many things to look forward to as you approach your 40s, lots of women at this age begin to notice the not-so-exciting first signs of laugh lines and other wrinkles around the mouth, in addition to continued thinning of the lips. At Acqua Blu Medical Spa in Pittsburgh, our team of knowledgeable professionals suggests using Juvéderm to plump the lips and to fill in the earliest lines and wrinkles appearing around the mouth.

In Your 50s
Women in their 50s can experience many of the same aging concerns as women in their 40s, but there may now be a larger focus on the actual shape and structure of the lips at this stage of life. When placed carefully and with precision, Juvéderm injections can help to restore the natural shape of the lips, as well as help to maintain a full appearance.
In Your 60s
As with many aspects of life in your 60s, lip enhancement at this stage is all about restoration and refreshment. Lines, wrinkles, and thinning lips can combine to create a tired or sad appearance, even when you still feel energized and ready to take on anything. Using Juvéderm to mimic the collagen in your skin and lips can help to restore the youthful and voluminous look of your younger self, while still appearing natural.
