Lip darkening is quite common among men and women. Dark lips can be a serious aesthetic concern and may need heavy makeup for coverage which further darkens your lips. Your lips may lose their natural color because of smoking, allergies, dehydration, and other reasons. However, you can opt for lip-lightening treatment at our clinic in Bangalore in return for an affordable price.
Reasons For Darker Lips
Here are the key reasons for having darker lips:
Smoking is a self-induced and common cause of darker lips. You are likely to have darker lips if you smoke regularly or are addicted to smoking. Tar and nicotine get transferred to your lips and darken them when you smoke.
Excessive Caffeine Consumption
Coffee can darken your lips. Excessive consumption of caffeine and caffeine-contained drinks can cause problems for your lips like the rest of your body parts.
Your lips will look dry if you are dehydrated. They will get drier, darker, and more chipped if you stay dehydrated for longer. You should keep hydrating your lips and body.
Consistent Sun Exposure
The production of melanin pigment increases when your skin gets overexposed to the sun, which causes brown patches. Body parts, like upper lips, are highly sensitive to the sun. So, you should apply sunscreen lotion before stepping out to protect your skin against harmful UV rays.
Some skin disorders may cause darker lips, spots, and pigmentations. Your lips may get darker because of pigmentation disorders, such as lip lick dermatitis, acanthosis nigricans, and melasma. Our dermatologist can identify the exact issue and suggest the right treatment.
Hair Removal Issues
Waxing on your upper lip can cause dark spots as it is a susceptible area. Incorrect way of hair removal and using a razor can damage and darken that area.
Allergies and Inflammations
Any injury to your lip or any type of inflammation can produce melanin, which helps in healing the inflammation and may cause discoloration. Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) infections, allergies, and drug reactions can darken your lips.
Treatments We Offer
Here are the different types of lip-lightening treatments we offer at our clinic:
Chemical peel inhibits an enzyme that produces melanin and exfoliates dead skin cells to lighten your lips. The peel penetrates deep inside your skin to repair the damaged cells. The peeling works by exfoliating and stimulating collagen production deep inside your skin. The peel helps in erasing the fine lines appearing on the lower and upper lip areas.
Lip Tattoo/ Lip Pigmentation
A lip tattoo involves inserting color pigments in your lips using tiny tattooing needles. We first draw your desired design and trace it onto the desired lip area. Laser treatment and chemicals such as kojic acid and hydroquinone are mostly used to treat lip hyperpigmentation. The lip pigmentation treatment works by inhibiting an enzyme that produces melanin.

Frequently Asked Questions On Dark Lips Treatment
Lip pigmentation tattoo, also known as permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of ink to the lips to create the appearance of fuller, more defined, and more evenly colored lips.
The procedure involves the use of a specialized tattoo machine or hand-held device that deposits pigment into the upper layer of the skin, also known as the dermis. The ink used in lip pigmentation tattoo is specifically designed for use on the lips and is typically made from a combination of organic and inorganic pigments that are safe for use in the body.
