Thin lips or lips that have lost volume or shape can be treated with a hyaluronic acid injectable filler such as Juvederm® Ultra XC or Restylane® to give a fuller appearance. These fillers have been approved by the FDA for treatment in and around the lips.
Vertical lip lines or deep wrinkles around the lips are treated with an injectable filler with smaller particle size, such as Restylane® Silk or Juvederm® Volbella XC. These fillers are specifically formulated to help fill out lines without creating a bulky appearance.
Downturned or drooping corners of the mouth and frown lines (sometimes know as marionette lines) can also be treated with injectable filler. Placement of either a Restylane® or Juvederm® hyaluronic acid filler will often give the appearance that the corners have been “lifted” resulting in a more relaxed, happier appearance. Filling out the depression or wrinkles in the marionette lines results in a more youthful appearance.
