Q: I have fine vertical lines, like “pucker lines” around my upper lip and my lipstick migrates into them; yuck. When I look at pictures of myself it’s all I see.
A: Don’t worry; there are two fillers that are great for those lines above your lip; and Beletero and Restylane Silk lip filler. These dermal fillers are less dense than other alternatives, allowing for them to be injected directly into those lines, filling them in a very natural-looking manner. If your lips are thin or also need some plumping up, a filler such as Juverderm may be used to add more volume.
These fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a clear gel that is soft and pliable. Hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally in our body so it is extremely safe. Lips injections actually don’t hurt due to the fact that lidocaine, a numbing agent, is mixed into a syringe.
Your lips will look totally natural and the only person who will know you had filler is you! The key to a great result is to take a conservative approach, don’t over do it, and select a well-trained clinician with lots of experience injecting lips.
