Thin Lips

Thin lips are a common concern for many women and men. Increasingly, as we age, our lips become smaller and ‘withdrawn’, especially the top lip. At The Face Place, we use only the highest of quality, HA fillers like Juvederm, Belotero, Teosyal or Emervel. These fillers can help restore natural volume to the lip, ‘crisp’ the border or improve fine lines.

A great clinician will understand about balance, harmony and proportion, and will discuss this with you as part of your assessment, ensuring natural-looking results.

Quick Facts

  • Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers can be injected into the lips and the areas around the lips to enhance the shape or size of lips.
  • Volume loss of the lips occurs naturally with time, and replacing this volume can result in more youthful looking lips.
  • We have an excellent reputation for creating beautiful, natural-looking lips.

Thin lips FAQ'S

Will I need an initial consultation? 

Yes, as with all of our services, you must have an initial-consultation before proceeding with your first treatment - regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment. We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.

How is an injectable lip enhancement performed?

You will have a thorough consultation and assessment, where both you and your clinician will create a tailored plan to help you reach your desired look. You will receive full education so that you feel fully informed to make your own decision. Before photos will be taken and you will then be able to schedule an appointment to come in for the actual treatment, one that works around your work and social commitments. Treatment takes around 20-60 minutes, as we are very fussy about achieving balance in your face, and like to take our time to ensure a beautiful, natural looking result.

What treatments are available for thin lips?

  • Lip Fillers: to enhance the border of the lip, improve volume and balance in the lips, lift the mouth corners and improve fine lines around the lips

  • Wrinkle relaxers for lips: to soften lip lines, reduce the amount of gum showing or make the lip appear slightly fuller (due to the relaxation of the 'edge' of the muscle)
