Dry Lip Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
If you’ve ever applied lipstick or lip salve and wondered ‘why are my lips so dry,’ then you are not alone. Almost everyone suffers from having chapped lips at some point in their lives, as it is often caused by environmental factors like cold, dry weather and sun damage. But the ageing process can also make our lips dry, cracked and wrinkled.
Our lips are at their fullest in our 20s, which is why we associate a plump and well-defined mouth with youthfulness. But the composition of our lips and their surrounding structures alters as part of the natural ageing process. The thin skin on our lips is particularly vulnerable to ageing as our bodies produce less collagen as we get older – this can lead to a loss of structure and volume in our lips, which can make them look dry, flat and wrinkled.
Restore moisture and fullness to your lips by opting for lip enhancements that quench and hydrate the lip area. Most dry lip enhancer treatments achieve results by boosting the skin’s own natural hyaluronic acid and collagen stores to bring back plumpness and definition to your lips. Biodegradable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a popular option, as they are specifically developed to attract and retain moisture to smooth dehydrated, dry lips.
We can also use ultrasound treatments and lip skin boosters to stimulate the production of new collagen stores deep within the skin.
At your initial consultation with our qualified medical practitioners, we will discuss a personalised lip treatment plan that follows a subtle approach for softer, fuller and more hydrated lips.

If you want to learn how to fix and stop dry lips quickly and effectively, then adopt a few simple daily habits to nourish and replenish your lip area all year round. If you want to use lip balms and makeup on your lips, then it is important to use products that are free from irritating ingredients. Avoid products that are over-fragranced and stick to mild formulations that won’t irritate or sting your lips. Instead, opt for products that are hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, or those containing natural ingredients like petroleum jelly or shea butter. It is also crucial to protect your dry lips from the elements by using a mild lip balm containing SPF to guard against UV rays and cold weather. Also keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoid licking your lips, as saliva can make them drier. Once these habits have been adopted, you can try pro-active treatments like fillers and collagen-stimulators in the lips to bring back their definition and smooth out the cracks.
Relieve lip dryness with immediate results by opting for dermal filler injections. Injectable hyaluronic acid lip fillers will boost skin hydration in your lips by naturally stimulating the production of your own hyaluronic acid stores. They also immediately bring back fullness and plumpness to your lips to fill lines and cracks in the process. We only use FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable lip fillers designed with safety and efficacy in mind. The type of lip augmentation we recommend may vary depending on your age, but our trained clinicians can advise on the best approach for your own specific needs.
Restylane Skin Boosters provide deep nourishment and hydration to the lips to bring back elasticity, firmness and plumpness. Using a series of hydrating micro-injections of hyaluronic acid, they allow your lips to retain more water while also smoothing out fine lip lines and wrinkles in the process.
