Lip lightening treatment

Fatwaa ID: 886

asalamualaikum wrwb

Is it allowed to get laser lip lightening treatment?

it is not for medical reason, but for cosmetic reason

“Laser lip lightening is the latest technology that sends targeted light and heat to melt melanin deposits. It reduces pigmentation and makes the skin lighter.”

Clarification: it is a temporary treatment

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

At the outset, one should cherish and appreciate the natural beauty that Allaah Ta’aala has given each and every person. Every person is unique and beautiful as he/she is. Nevertheless, if the above treatment is done to remove or correct a blemish, then one will be excused. If it is merely done for enhancement reasons, then that would be reprehensible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
