Lip fillers smooth wrinkles around the lips and augment overall lip volume. These injectables may be a great choice if you want to rejuvenate and beautify your lips.

Certain types of Juvederm and Restylane are administered to fill lips and smooth creases. Dr. Anthony Miller will go over your options and help you choose. In general, lip fillers are a good match for:

  • Thin lips
  • Wrinkles above the crest of the upper lip (so-called “smoker’s lines,” although anyone can get them)
  • Lips that are not as pouty and shapely as you’d like

Fillers will not only plump the lips, but also create a silkier, smoother lip appearance. Dr. Miller works with you to determine the look of the final results. Most people want a very natural, subtle augmentation, while other patients may prefer a poutier, celebrity-style volumization. In all cases, Dr. Miller provides results that are beautiful and flattering to your overall appearance.

You may also want to address lip wrinkles, or address lip wrinkles alone without augmentation. These goals are also a great fit for lip fillers. Juvederm and Restylane fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid. HA also occurs naturally throughout your body. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture molecules, so it provides results that hydrate, plump and add volume optimally.

Lip fillers are completely non-surgical. They are administered through a series of injections. Dr. Miller will make sure you are comfortable throughout the appointment. There isn’t a recovery period, but bruising and swelling are normal side effects. For that reason, you will want to plan your appointment at least several days in advance of any important meetings or events so that your lips will be fully healed in time. Depending on the specific filler, results tend to last 6-18 months.
