Getting Filler In the Lips
Juvederm is a popular choice for enhancing the fullness of the lips. Like Belotero, it is also made of hyaluronic acid. But it is processed and cross linked differently. Because this molecule can hold large amounts of water, it creates a very seamless and hydrated plumping of the lips.
Ultimately, though results will depend on the overall skills of the injector. This would include the ability to apply the right quantity of filler in a proportionate way to best compliment the appearance of the patient.
Vertical Lip Lines ("Bar Code" Lines) Respond Well To Fillers
If needed, my preference for this purpose in my Upper East Side Manhattan office is Belotero Balance, since it possesses little to no tendency to engender the unwanted, bluish Tyndall Effect when injected superficially in the tissues around the mouth. In my Israel satellite facility, where a far greater number of regulatory agency approved fillers are available, I typically use Teosyal Redensity II.
From frontal view photo provided, there appears to be a nearly proper proportion between the upper lip to the lower lip (one third the volume for the upper lip and two-thirds for the lower), so I would be reluctant to add any additional volume, except perhaps the smallest amount to the central pout of the lower lip.
