What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that involve injecting dermal fillers into the lips to enhance their appearance. Typically made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, these fillers add volume, improve symmetry, and define the lip contours. Popular options include Juvéderm, Radiesse, and RHA fillers, each with unique formulations. Lip fillers address concerns like thin lips, asymmetry, or age-related volume loss, providing natural-looking results tailored to individual preferences.

Lip Fillers Treat:

  • Thin lips lacking in volume and fullness
  • Asymmetry between the upper and lower lips
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the lips (perioral wrinkles)
  • Age-related volume loss from the lips
  • Lip shape irregularities
  • Lack of definition

Your Lip Filler Options


Juvéderm lip fillers work through the use of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body’s connective tissues. When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid molecules attract and bind to water molecules, resulting in increased hydration and volume in the lips. Additionally, hyaluronic acid further enhances lip fullness and structure over time, helping you achieve natural-looking results with minimal downtime.


Radiesse lip fillers comprise calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. Upon injection, these microspheres provide immediate volume to the lips while stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Over time, the gel carrier gradually dissipates, leaving behind the calcium hydroxylapatite particles. Collagen then forms around these particles, further enhancing the volume and structure of the lips.

RHA Fillers

RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) lip fillers are engineered using a unique cross-linking technology that mimics the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin. This allows for the creation of a flexible gel that adapts to the dynamic movements of the lips. Upon injection, the RHA gel integrates seamlessly into the lip tissue, providing immediate volume enhancement and softening of fine lines while ensuring natural-looking results.
