Lip Peel

Dark lips are caused as a result of hyperpigmentation, and this is a harmless condition and is caused by excess melanin production. Lip pigmentation is a common problem faced by many people. Various advanced treatments are available to treat dark lips that help regain the lost color and texture and offer plumper and brighter lip shape.

Lip Peel

Many people want to treat lip hyperpigmentation for cosmetic reasons. The chemical peel is one of the best treatments that work by inhibiting an enzyme that produces melanin and exfoliates the dead skin cells to improve the lip's darkness. These peels penetrate deep into the skin to repair the damaged cell.


Factors that cause dark lips


1. Excessive sun exposure
The skin of the lips is quite sensitive, and sun exposure causes increased melanin production and leaves dark or brown patches on the lips.


2. Waxing
Removing unwanted hair with waxing can cause sensitivity in the skin in the upper lips area, resulting in skin burns and the appearance of dark patches.


3. Smoking 
Smoking is another common cause of dark lips, and people with a regular habit of smoking have dark lips as the tar and nicotine cause lip darkening.


4. Injury or allergic reactions
Any type of infection and injury can also stimulate the production of melanin in the process of healing, and this also causes the formation of dark spots on the lips in the color brown, black, to greyish blue. 


5. Other factors that can also lead to darker lips:

  • Chronic medical condition.
  • Anemia.
  • Deficiency of vitamins.
  • Too much caffeine intake.
  • Excessive dryness in the lips.
  • Repetitive licking of lips.
  • Excessive fluoride use.
  • Use of expired products on lips.
  • Repetitive application of dark colored lip shades in a day.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
