Why Do We Get Lip Lines, and How to Address Them?

Youthful, full lips have long been a symbol of beauty across cultures and epochs. Lip enhancement remains a top request at cosmetic clinics today. With advances in hyaluronic acid fillers, the lip augmentation process has become more accessible.

Botox Lip Lines in Edmonton: A Comprehensive Protocol

Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are a game-changer. These fillers offer varying grades of cross-linking, leading to different viscosities. Soft fillers correlate with low viscosity and vice versa. This variance in fillers allows for tailored treatments, enhancing the results. Another advantage? They’re reversible. If you’re unhappy, an enzyme injection can dissolve the filler.

Step One: Communication

Before undergoing the procedure, establishing open communication between the client and the injector is crucial. This alignment ensures the desired outcome is achieved, setting realistic expectations.

Step Two: The Golden Ratio

Many believe that the ideal lip ratio is 1.6:1, with the lower lip being fuller than the upper. However, this isn’t a hard rule. Some individuals, especially those with strong facial features, may prefer a balanced 1:1 ratio.

Step Three: Understanding Lip’s Anatomy

  • Lip Lines:

    • Philtrum Columns: These central upper lip lines can be enhanced to varying degrees based on age and preference.
    • Cupid’s Bow: This iconic ‘U’ shape can be given a pouty look with minimal filler.
    • Vermillion Borders: Enhancing this edge, especially in the central part, can elevate the lip’s look. Soft fillers like Juvederm Volbella or Restylane Refyne work best here.
  • Lip Pillows:

    • Upper Lips: Three distinct pillows exist, aligning with the lines mentioned above.
    • Lower Lips: Two pillows sit on the lower lip, flanking a sexy central groove.

For the deeper injection planes of the lips, a thicker filler might be chosen.

Step Four: Nasolabial Folds

Addressing these facial lines can further elevate the lip, aligning with current beauty trends.

Step Five: Oral Commissures Support

Injecting fillers at the mouth’s corners provides a lift. Enhancing this with Botox in the depressor muscle can lead to a naturally smiley appearance.


The primary limitation is cost. Not all clients want to invest in multiple syringes of different fillers, making it crucial for injectors to choose wisely. The filler’s choice often hinges on what the client needs more: volume or definition.
