If you’re after a longer-lasting (and extra invasive) resolution to thinning lips, lip injections could also be best for you. Dubbing hyaluronic acid–filler as “lip gloss in a syringe” due to its capability to maintain 1,000 occasions its weight in water, Dr. Hausauer says the in-office therapy is her go-to for sufferers with thinning lips. “Lip filler is an excellent way to restore lost volume, recreate definition or shape, and increase hydration,” she provides.
If you don’t assume you’re fairly prepared for filler, Dr. Waldorf says not to consider lip filler as being about larger lips. The correct injector, together with the appropriate stability of filler, can ship a way more pure look to your lips than you would possibly assume.
“I commonly blend a ‘lighter’ hyaluronic acid gel filler—like Restylane Kysse, Belotero Balance, or RHA 2—with some anesthetic or sterile saline and inject sparingly in a more superficial plane to provide increased hydration and natural softness and shape both in appearance and feel,” Dr. Waldorf explains.
Noting that totally different merchandise are used to obtain totally different objectives, Dr. Hausauer says she finds Restylane Kysse and Juvederm Ultra present “more structure and a juicy lip, albeit always soft and natural,” whereas Vobella is healthier for “minimal volume but smoother surface texture.”
