Why do lips thin?

There are many reasons why we lose elasticity or fullness in our skin — especially our lips. It could be from age or other factors like B12 deficiency or smoking. Even too much sun exposure can damage the skin’s dermis, causing collagen to break down, thus losing fullness in the lips over time. On the other hand, you could be experiencing the loss of collagen because of genetic traits.

The importance of collagen

Collagen is a protein that our bodies naturally produce. This protein is critical to smooth skin and full lips. There are two varieties of collagen:


Collagen that is naturally produced by our bodies.


Collagen that comes from an outside source, such as injectables, fillers, or even supplements.

Frequently Asked Questions​

Thin lips can result from genetic factors, aging or loss of collagen. Lip fillers are a popular non-surgical option that can effectively address thin lips. These injections use hyaluronic acid-based substances to add volume, definition, and contour to enhance lip appearance. This safe and minimally invasive procedure offers natural-looking results.

BCI Clinic’s lip fillers in Ottawa are injectable cosmetic treatments, often using hyaluronic acid-based substances to enhance lip volume, shape, and definition. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound in the body known for its hydrating properties.

During the procedure, our professional will strategically inject the filler into specific areas of the lips. The filler attracts water to create a plumper, fuller appearance. This process also stimulates collagen production, contributing to long-lasting results. While lip fillers are minimally invasive, please consult with our team at BCI Clinic to ensure you’re a good candidate for this treatment.

If you’re looking to address thin lips, the first step is a consultation with our professionals at BCI Clinic. We’ll discuss your goals and concerns and advise on the best treatment plan.

If lip filler injections are right for you, on the day of the procedure, we may apply a topical numbing cream. We’ll then use a fine needle to inject the filler into pre-planned areas. You may feel slight pressure. The process typically takes around 15 to 30 minutes.

The results of lip filler vary based on factors like the filler used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle. Generally, hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers, the most common type, offer results lasting six to twelve months. Over time, the body gradually absorbs the filler. To maintain optimal results, we may recommend follow-up treatments. Regular touch-ups can help prolong the effects and ensure consistent lip fullness.

Lip fillers are generally safe, but like any cosmetic procedure, there can be risks. Common side effects include temporary redness, discomfort around the injection area, bruising, or swelling. These usually disappear within a few days. To minimize risks, choose a qualified cosmetic clinic, like BCI Clinic, and adhere to post-treatment care instructions.

Lip fillers are beneficial if you want enhanced lip volume, shape, or symmetry. Good candidates include those wanting more definition or who have naturally thin lips. However, keep in mind that lip fillers might not be suitable for everyone, including those with cold sores or infections around the injection site or a history of allergies to hyaluronic acid.

The number of injections needed depends on your desired outcome and initial lip condition. Some achieve desired results within a single session, while others may benefit from a series of treatments for gradual enhancement. Our registered nurses will assess your unique needs and create a personalized treatment plan to achieve the best outcome.
