HYALURONIC ACID LIP FILLERS: WHAT CAUSES THIN LIPS?
Aging, sun exposure, and smoking are some of the main reasons why patients want to increase their lip volume with lip filler. Aging causes a breakdown of fat pads and collagen in the lips, so they gradually become thinner. Smoking hastens this change as nicotine damages healthy skin elements, and the repetitive act of pursing the lips to puff and inhale can also contribute to the problem.
JUVÉDERM® FOR LIPS: WHAT ARE HYALURONIC ACID LIP FILLERS?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common types of dermal fillers used for augmentation. Hyaluronic acid lip fillers offer subtle improvements that go beyond the fuller look you can achieve with makeup. These temporary lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the skin where it attracts water to help with hydration.
Juvéderm Volbella®, a hyaluronic acid lip filler available at Pierre Skin Care Institute, is a lip filler injection to increase the volume of the lips. It is often the best dermal filler for vertical lip lines as well.
WHERE IS LIP FILLER INJECTED IN THE LIPS
There are several lip filler injection sites around the lips, such as the vermillion border and Cupid’s bow that can be enhanced with hyaluronic acid lip filler treatments. These are highly versatile treatments, so depending on your goals, it’s entirely possible to have fillers for upper lip wrinkles, vermilion border lip filler, upper lip line fillers, mild lip fillers, lip edge filler, lip filler for downturned lips, and other options.
Dr. Pierre uses advanced techniques to help you achieve the most natural-looking, beautiful hyaluronic acid lip filler results possible while avoiding an overly superficial lip filler effect or an exaggerated “duck face” from lip filler.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HYALURONIC ACID LIP FILLERS?
There are many reasons why patients may want to have hyaluronic acid lip fillers, such as:
- Restoring fullness to the lips to bring back a previous shape if they have become smaller or thinner due to aging.
- Addressing asymmetry if the lips are different sizes or shapes.
- Reducing wrinkles above the upper lip.
- Improving your self-image, confidence, and body image.
One of the advantages of hyaluronic acid lip fillers is that it’s possible to easily and quickly reverse lip filler with an enzyme called hyaluronidase if you dislike the results. This can also help to address rare complications associated with hyaluronic lip fillers, such as lip filler blanching and lip filler moustache.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR HYALURONIC ACID LIP FILLERS?
The best candidates for hyaluronic acid lip fillers are patients who are in good physical health, maintain realistic expectations, and do not have any active oral infections, such as canker sores or cold sores.
CAN HYALURONIC ACID LIP FILLER ON SMALL LIPS BE EFFECTIVE?
Although lip filler on full lips works well, it can also be just as effective if you have normal or small-sized lips. Whether you are born with small lips or your lips have lost volume over time, hyaluronic acid lip fillers for upper lip and lower lip enhancement can deliver impressive results for patients who have thin lips or a small mouth.
Juvéderm Volbella®, specifically, is a thin and light injectable lip filler for pouty lips. It is one of the softest lip fillers available and provides smooth and natural-looking volume. That makes it especially ideal for small lips.
