Lips are the center of attraction of the face. Naturally pink lips add a charm to the face. The lips on the skin are only about 3 to 5 cells thick thus making it a lot more delicate and thin than the skin on any other part of the body. When it comes to the lips, one main problem faced by people is its pigmentation. Pigmentation makes the skin of the lips darker than normally it should be. Though dark lips have no effect on the health of a person, people still desire to get lighter lips for aesthetic purposes. Dark Lips Treatment by Dermatologist in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah addresses these desires and gives a person light and smooth lips.
What are Dark Lips?
Excess melanin deposits on lips cause hyperpigmentation making it dark. It can be developed on any part of the mouth. It can be caused by different reasons e.g. genetics, smoking, age factor, dehydration, reaction to lipsticks or lip products, and can also result from some other medical conditions. In this case, the doctor should be consulted to figure out the underlying cause and treat it.
Lip licking or sucking may also result in dark lips due to constant exposure of lip tissue to saliva.
Clinical Treatment for Dark Lips:
Some of the clinical treatments are mentioned below
Mild Chemical Peels: This method is done once in 3 to 4 weeks. In this procedure, no visible peeling occurs in peeling but it does cause rapid turnover of skin cells that sheds the pigment faster. In 3 to 4 hours the recipient can eat normally and there is no intense post-care of this treatment. However, it is advised not to peel your lips and do not apply lipstick the same day, and also apply lip balm with an SPF.
It is a very safe procedure that needs to be carried out by an experienced dermatologist to minimize the risk of any possible side effects and give the best results
Laser Treatment: In this method, the lips are targeted with a high beam of concentrated light energy. This breaks down the extra melanin on the lips causing them to be lighter. The dermatologist may or may not use topical anesthesia, thirty minutes before the treatment, to numb the lips and the area to be treated by laser. This is done only once a month.
Both the treatments can be carried outside by side by the dermatologist by scheduling the appointments in such a way that in one session chemical peeling is done and in the other laser treatment.
The recipient will have to go for multiple sessions for the treatment. This cannot be done in a single sitting.
Medications: The dermatologist may also suggest some medication to lighten the lips. These topical medicines are to be used under the instructions and supervision of a dermatologist.
