As a facility with the expertise and experience of advanced color theory, lip lightening can be achieved for those individuals who wish to correct or lighten unwanted darkness of the lips. These custom colored lip pigments are implanted into the lips to "neutralize" the unwanted darkness of the lips and subsequently return them to a lighter more natural and even tone. The concept of lip lightening has been around for decades, however due to the trending aspects of social media we are now seeing more requests for this type of procedure. The first step is a consultation to determine if lip lightening is safe for you!
Who Gets Lip Lightening and Why?
Darker lips can be a result of simply genetics or other have other causes. Most often, lips that are darker are found in ethnicities in which the natural skin tones contain a lot of melanin. Commonly in those with olive skin tones, those with hispanic ancestry or African-American ethnicity will naturally have more darkness to the lips. Other times darker lips can be a result of trauma or injury to the lips resulting in permanent hyperpigmentation. It is important for your clinician to be educated on who will be a good candidate for lip lightening to avoid potentially stimulating additional hyperpigmentation to the lips!
