Defining the philtral column and cupid's bow with a hyaluronic acid filler

+1

Hello and thank you for the question.

Philtral columns and the cupid's bow may be shaped and defined using injectable fillers. Our preference is to use a hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm Ultra Plus.  The procedure is performed over a series of treatments several weeks apart and the results are exceptional in carefully selected patients.

In my opinion, yes, I believe a small amount of hyaluronic acid filler placed very superficially along the "white roll," or vermilion-cutaneous border of your lips, designed to emphasize and augment the features you are seeking would help.  Strategically applied lip liner, lip stick, and lip gloss would help also.  A smile would add immeasurably.  Many women pay to have lips the size of yours!  Enjoy!
