Our lips play a vital role in our facial appearance. Over time, aging, genetics, and other factors may thin our lips and take away our confidence. That’s where lip fillers come in. Dr. Schalit often recommends Juvederm lip fillers to patients who are longing for fuller, sexier lips. If you’re intrigued and wondering how long lip fillers last, keep reading.
How Aging Leads to Thinning Lips
Your lips feature the same tissue that’s inside of your mouth. Since the surface of your lips doesn’t contain any skin cells, your lips are unable to lock in moisture and susceptible to dehydration. Also, they contain less melanin, which is the pigment that gives us color and less collagen, an anti-aging protein, leading to a thin appearance.
Although every patient has their own unique idea of “perfect lips,” most patients prefer lips with distinct borders and a nicely shaped Cupid’s bow, which is the outline of the upper lip, including the two peaks below the nose.

What is Juvederm Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella is a filler that has been approved by the FDA that can help you achieve plumper lips and resolve the vertical lines and wrinkles that surround your mouth area. It contains hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body and can be injected in less than 15 minutes with no downtime.
Juvederm Volbella will leave you with fuller lips for three to six months. Dr. Schalit will customize the treatment to meet your unique aesthetic goals. If you’d like a bit of enhancement rather than large, dramatic lips, simply let him know and he’ll make it happen. He is committed to delivering results that match your personal preferences.
While you may experience a slight pinching sensation, you’ll find the Juvederm Volbella injection to be virtually painless. Bruising and swelling can occur and usually resolve within 14 days.
Good Candidates for Lip Fillers
If you are bothered by thin lips that have been affected by genetics or the natural process of aging, you may be a great candidate for lip fillers. Lip fillers may also be right for you if you are concerned about vertical lines around your lips and wish you could achieve plumper lips without having to apply lip liner and lipstick.
