Lip fillers can be great option for someone who is looking to add volume to their lips. A Botox lip flip can be helpful for those with thinner lips and a gummy smile - lip fillers can add volume and definition.
During a lip filler treatment, hyaluronic acid-based filler (which has a gel-like consistency) is injected into different points of the lips with either a needle or cannula. Hyaluronic acid is a particularly good filler material because it's hydrophilic (water-loving) in nature. This means it can attract and hold lots of water which helps to plump out the lips.
Filler can be injected into different parts of the lip area, including directly into the lips themselves, or around the perimeter of the mouth, called the vermillion borders. The former will give a fuller, plumper look, whereas the latter will make the lips look more defined.
One huge benefit of lip fillers is that they can plump out small, thin lips which are lacking in volume. As we age, our lips - like the rest of our face - start to lose their youthful plumpness, so lip fillers can help restore lost volume. But, this treatment can also be used to make the lips more even, change their shape and give them definition.
