Over time lips gradually lose volume, become smaller and can develop fine lines around their borders. The cupids bow can become flattened and the corners of the mouth may turn downward, creating a tired, aged appearance. Dermal fillers can enhance thin lips, create a more defined lip border and add fullness and balance.
Juvederm, Restylane and others
Lips can be enhanced by:
Creating more lip volume
Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to thin lips, giving a fuller appearance.
Defining the lip line
Dermal fillers can be injected along borders of the lips and into the cupids bow to accentuate the lip line giving a more shapely and youthful appearance.
Correcting marionette lines
Marionette lines are lines that are present just below the corners of the mouth and occur with loss of volume associated with ageing.
They can give the appearance of pulling the mouth downwards giving a sad and unhappy facial expression. Dermal filler can be injected just below the corner of the mouth to soften these lines by adding volume to the area and giving shape to the lips.

Smoker’s lines are vertical lines mainly at the top lip can be effectively reduced by dermal filler treatment into the lips.
