Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm have become popular with people who want plumper lips quickly and easily, often in a matter of minutes. The best candidates for lip injections are patients who need more volume or want to balance their facial features by enhancing their lips. Studies have shown that hyaluronic acid-based fillers may stimulate the production of collagen, which will keep the lips looking fuller longer.
One major consideration for women or men looking to enhance their lips is how natural it will look. The term “duck lips” is often used when describing lip enhancement gone too far, when the lips have been over-filled and don’t look real.
“Patients come to me asking for more voluminous lips while still looking like they’ve had no work done. That is the basis behind my philosophy,” Lorenc says. “You should look natural and more youthful without any obvious signs of aesthetic work, especially in a place as conspicuous as your lips.”
The place where the fillers are injected will determine your results. The lips can be injected in the “white roll” and the “red line.” The white roll describes where the lip meets the skin under the nose. The red line is the term for the place where the dry outer and wet inner parts of your lips meet.
