If I have an indentation on the bottom of my lip, will a hyaluronic acid pill or any injectable filler make that disappear?

I have an indentation in the middle of my bottom lip (much like Angelina Jolie does). I'm more interested to know if intaking hyaluronic acid through a pill will make it disappear, and will it make all wrinkles on my lips disappear? The thing is, I don't want my indentation to disappear, I'd just like my lips to be slightly more plumped. If it does disappear, is it permanent? And is there any permanent way to plump lips while leaving the natural look and feel to it

Hyaluronic acid fillers for the lip

Thanks for your question.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are great choice for making the lip fuller and symmetric.
HA fillers are reversable if needed by an injection.
HA fillers can improve the shape of the lip but they last 6-9 months most of the time.
Best wishes

Dear Breezy,

HA fillers are a great way to improve lip fullness. HA are not permanent they last about 6-9 months. A good permanent way to increase lip fullness would be with lip implants. 

Hope this was helpful!

Using HA fillers to the lips are a great way to balance and plump your lips!  Yes, you can keep the shape and feel of your lip while just plumping them!  No, HA fillers are not permanent!

Treatment of indentation of lips

It's hard to make an accurate assessment without seeing a picture of your lips. Fillers can be used to give your lips a more pouty look. When done by an experienced injector you will still maintain the natural look and shape of your lips. It can also help raise the indentation without completely taking it away. The best thing to do is to schedule a consultation to see which filler would be most appropriate for you. Hope this helps!

  Injectable fillers are reasonable to plump lips.  Evaluation is always key.

Juvederm can help plump your lips in a natural way.  It shouldn't be applied to make all the wrinkles disappear since this is unnatural looking.  As for the indentation, it's hard to know what you mean exactly without seeing you.  If recommend you go to an experienced injector and communicate exactly what look you are hoping to achieve.
