So what makes the lips on a woman’s face so sexy, and why are men attracted to them? Lips are a secondary sexual calling signal for women, and are external indicators of fertility, femininity and even possible arousal. In fact, one study links lips to sexual satisfaction! There are up to six different types of lip patterns; some are born with thin lips, while others are large and thick. A female’s lips are largest in their late teens but lengthen and lose definition during their golden years. And as the skin of the lips thin, we start to see those pesky fine lines that develop over the lip borders, affectionately known as, “smoker’s lines” or the “bar code.” This can happen in all people regardless if they’ve smoked.
Another sign of aging lips is the downturn at the corner of the mouth, which can give the false impression of being sad, and there is evidence there could be truth to that notion. Fortunately today, we are excited about the recent launch of Restylane Silk(tm), a newer version of an old friend. Restylane(tm) the first hyaluronic filler introduced to the U.S. over ten years ago is now available in a thinner formula. It’s been successful in Europe and Canada and we are thrilled to now have it available for our patients! Thinning and dry lips, along with fine lines above the lip can be treated effectively. Dr. Dayan is one of the world’s leading physicians, educators and providers of fillers, and is one of the first to use it in the United States. He has a great deal of experience treating and enhancing lips to recreate a fuller more attractive lip, while still keeping it natural. This takes enormous experience, an artistic eye and a gentle touch.
So it’s not surprising that lipstick/lip gloss was the answer 100 women gave of what they need in their purse to make them feel more confident. They know the importance of a pretty pout!
