Hyaluronic acid gel (Q-med / Juvederm) can be used to restore the natural contour and softness of your lips, and often makes one look more relaxed, or less "tight-lipped".

Hyaluronic acid gel usually lasts for 6-12 months and allows total flexibility. The choice is yours:

  • Just a touch of volume to give some softness to the lips and reduce lip lines and dryness
  • Better defined and sculpted lip borders
  • Fuller, more sensual lips
  • Correct asymmetry of lips
  • Reduce "smoker's lines"
  • Give support to drooping mouth corners

"Smoker's Lines"

These pesky vertical lines around the lips are due to a loss of supportive tissue around the mouth and in some cases are contributed to by the age-related shrinking of lips. During early stages these lines only show up when lips are pursed; i.e. when pronouncing the letters "o", "q" and "u". With time, these lines become etched into the skin. Botox is useful at early stages as it reduces the strength of the lip-pursing muscle, in turn delaying the onset of permanent lines.

If creases are already set in the skin, these can be improved by dermal fillers or fractional laser resurfacing.
