Thinning lips and loss of definition of the lip border reduce the youthfulness of your appearance! At Arcanum we offer lip injections/lip rejuvenation techniques to help you maintain/regain your appearance.
Lip lines, also called rhytides, range from superficial to deep and are found extending upward from the upper lip. Individuals may find this condition unpleasant in appearance as well as inconvenient, since lipstick seems to “bleed” into these lines. Both lip lines and thinning lips are caused by one or more of the following factors:
- Over exposure to the sun

Treatments for Lip Lines and Thinning Lips
Fast becoming a very sought-after treatment, lip enhancement can produce dramatic results by diminishing deep lip lines, defining the border of the lip and adding volume to thinning lips. Each procedure is customized to the condition and desires of the individual and can be performed on both the lower and upper lip. One or more steps may be used to create the look you wish to achieve! It is very important that the physician who administers this treatment be very well trained with a great deal of skill and experience.
A micro needle and catheter are used to inject the appropriate filler product into the affected areas during this treatment. A local anesthetic that is similar to the ones used for dental work is applied in order to completely minimize discomfort. There is no downtime associated with lip enhancement other than the possibility of slight swelling for a brief amount of time. At Arcanum, in order to also minimize the occurrence of any bruising, we encourage the use of specific medication that addresses this possibility. You may apply makeup at any time that it is comfortable to do so following lip enhancement.
