With aging comes a slowed production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. This results in a loss of volume in the face and lips. The lips become thin or flat. Lip augmentation procedures to achieve fuller lips are gaining in popularity. Dermal fillers are treatment options to help patients look younger by restoring volume to areas of the face and lips. With offices in the Cleveland area – Mayfield Heights, Akron, and Mentor, OH, the team at Allied Dermatology and Skin Surgery offer cosmetic injectable fillers to help Cleveland area patients achieve the young, rejuvenated looks they deserve.
FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the body and is a building block of the skin. It provides the skin with moisture, nutrients, and volume. The aging process slows the production of hyaluronic acid, making the skin lose moisture and fullness. This results in a more hollowed or thin appearance across the whole face, visible lines and wrinkles, and thinning lips. Hyaluronic acid is used in dermal fillers to fill lines and wrinkles, to contour the face, and to add volume to the lips or hollowed areas. The results are natural and long-lasting. Juvéderm and Restylane are two of the most common hyaluronic acid fillers for restoring lost volume to the face and lips.

Dermal fillers treatment for lips
Juvéderm Volbella and Restylane Silk are FDA approved injectable treatments. The products are used for lip augmentation treatments in adults ages 21 and over. As injectable gels, the dermal fillers are made using hyaluronic acid to add natural volume and moisture to the treatment area. The mouth tends to lose volume early, causing people to have a sad resting face. However, thin lips are not always a sign of aging. Some patients have naturally thin lips and desire subtle volume.
Juvéderm and Restylane are used to add volume to areas of the face, to fill creases and folds, and to augment the lips. Juvéderm Volbella plumps the lips and smooths vertical lines around the mouth. Restylane Silk adds volume and definition to the lips. Restylane typically has a stiffer composition so it holds its shape; whereas Juvéderm is thinner and spreads out more easily. Neither is better than the other. The composition just makes the products better suited for different lip plumping goals. The gel products are formulated with lidocaine, making the treatments easily tolerated by patients.
Both products come from collections of popular, top quality dermal fillers. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, each product is smooth, malleable, and easy to inject, producing natural-looking results. Benefits include the following:
- FDA approved
- Immediate results
- Effects that last up to 12 months
- Easily tolerated treatments
If you are considering a dermal filler treatment to plump your lips, a consultation is necessary to discuss your options. Let the team at Allied Dermatology and Skin Surgery help you choose the most appropriate filler for your individual needs. Juvéderm and Restylane have different filling capacities, thicknesses, and abilities to spread, making each ideal for different goals when plumping lips. During your appointment, you will discuss your medical history, experience with dermal fillers, and your expectations. Discussing your problem areas and expectations helps determine which filler to use, how much is needed, and where to inject it.
The procedure takes a few minutes as the product is injected into the lips adding volume to the desired area. The incorporation of lidocaine in the products makes injections more comfortable for patients. The results are immediate. You can leave the office with fuller lips. Try to avoid rubbing your face or lips to ensure proper placement of the filler. Mild side effects may include swelling or bruising at the injection sites. These effects should subside within a week to reveal the full effects of your dermal filler treatment. Results of Juvéderm and Restylane lip augmentation last up to one year.
Our team will develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve fuller, yet natural-looking lips. In our experienced hands, you can achieve the look you desire with long-lasting results. Dermal fillers can be combined with other cosmetic injections and facial treatments for complete rejuvenation.
