Nancy5203, it is possible to use fillers to improve fine-line's of the lip as well as improve the definition of the vermilion. I would recommend a hyaluronic acid filler in a skilled injectors hands. A more permanent or long lasting solution would require laser intervention. Either with a non-ablative or ablative approach. The non-ablative approach requires time and patience and in general does not improve the appearance as much as the ablative approach. The ablative approach works better but does require more healing. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Vertical Lip Line Filler
Hi Nancy. I would recommend Belotero to replace the lost volume that has resulted in your vertical lip lines. Belotero is a light, easily moldable filler that provides excellent natural results in this area. Hope this helps!
Verticle lip lines
There are many treatment for these lines, among them are low dose Botox and fillers. Deep peels, dermabrasion and laser resurfacing can also be used. The best filler currently is Belotero which if injected properly can give substantial improvement without changing the appearance of the lips.
A well-performed injectable filler treatment may lead to less wrinkling in the vermillion of your lips.
Your vertical lip wrinkles are showing from slight volume loss. A delicate filler treatment may lead to a smoother lip appearance without significantly enlarging or changing the shape of your lips. We prefer to use Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for subtle and permanent results. Radiesse is not typically advised for use in the lips.
Hope this helps you.
Belotero works amazingly well in the areas you described-it is very malleable and perfect for those fine lines in that part of the face. Our patients love the result
Vertical lip lines
Absolutely. The key is to inject just a little amount to smooth away your wrinkles. Find an experienced injector who has a gentle touch. Juvederm works great here.
Filling the lip line does most of work
Yes it's possible o fill the vertical lip lines BY Filling the lip line. You see you will "break up" the vertical lines as it goes into your natural lip line (the junction between red and normal skin). My favorite filler for this is Juvederm. A tiny thrad injected just along your lip line or border. It will expand overnight by absorbing water from your body and give a great erasing effect without enlarging your lips.
Filler for lip lines
We are fortunate in Canada to have Juvederm Volbella which is a perfect hyaluronic acid filler to give definition of the vermilion borders and to smooth lips without adding much volume. In the US, tiny amounts of Belotero or Restylane by a skilled injector would also give a desired result.
Improving lip lines
You do have a beautifully shaped lip. The border of the lip can be enhanced with a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler and can accentuate your nice shape without adding volume. Vertical lip lines can be addressed with a neuromuscular relaxer like botox and also with a HA filler such as belotero which is designed for appropriate superficial placement or diluting or thinning of another HA with lidocaine so that it looks natural in the superficial lines. Nonablative skin rejuvenation with lasers can build collagen to smoothe fine lines as well. I think your goals are achievable!
Lip lines and vermilion issues can be addressed with facial fillers. Often a little goes a long way. Initially you may be swollen, but filler can work wonders.
