The Best Lip Plumping Treatmemt
Listen to Dr. Teo Wan Lin’s podcast on lip care and preventing mask lip
The following is a lip care routine designed by our dermatologist Dr. Teo Wan Lin, who has developed these lip cosmeceuticals and is a leader in the field of lip care products.
“The lips are a delicate part of your facial skin that is distinct because of the type of epithelium that is different from the rest of your facial skin. Because the mucosal area tends to be more delicate, it’s important to understand that mucosal areas often absorb whatever is applied on it – which can lead to absorption into the body system as well. Hence, the important factor to note here is that an edible formula is always preferred over just a cosmetic formula – which may be safe, but not fully edible. The lips often become wrinkled, dry and discolored with age. One way to plump up your lips is to use cosmeceuticals which repair the barrier function of the lips – drawing water from the deeper layers.
Active ingredients should target to restore the elasticity, moisture levels, and natural pinkish color of lips. The following active ingredients have been researched to have the best benefits for lip care products. Phytoceramides which are derived from plant seed oils, grape seed oil which is a food derivative that has potent antioxidant properties, and is related to resveratrol. The natural ability of polysaccharide materials to enhance absorption of these topicals is also relevant. This regimen has been used by my patients who are interested in anti-aging of the lip as a home lip care regimen, starting with exfoliation, day time hydration – which also includes the option to use a lip stain for the function of skincare makeup – and an intensive night treatment that really serves to plump up the lips. We’ve also included a monitoring device which is the skin hydration analyzer, which is able to measure the ceramide and elastin levels, as well as transepidermal water loss when used over delicate areas such as the lips as well as the eye area,” Dr. Teo Wan Lin.
