Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the lips giving fuller, more shapely and defined lips. The lips can be enhanced by creating more lip volume to thinner lips to give them a fuller appearance. 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.
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. Smokers lines which are vertical lines mainly at the top lip can also be effectively reduced by dermal filler treatment into the lips.
