Juvederm for Lips and Perioral Lines

Thank you for sharing your question. Juvederm can safely be used for lip augmentation, which involves injecting filler directly into the lip. In my practice, I like to use the microcannula technique for lip filler, which minimizes risk of swelling and essentially eliminates bruising. Juvederm can also be used to fill the vertical lines around the mouth. This procedure usually requires injecting filler into each individual line with a needle to prop up the wrinkles, resulting in rejuvenated, younger looking skin. If you have additional questions, I suggest consulting with a board-certified specialist who can evaluate you in-person and offer you personalized recommendations.

Juvederm injections


Juvederm may be placed in the lips as well as around the mouth, depending on the effect desired. The product is placed directly into the lips for volume and shape enhancement and around the mouth to define the white roll, support the frame and to lift the mouth corners.

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your lips. Filler should be placed in the body of the lips if they are trying to achieve more fullness. If they want to define the lips and fix any asymmetries then filler can be placed in the border of the lips. Filler is typically only places outside of the lips to correct for fine lines and wrinkles.

Lip filler: in the lip or around it

Lip augmentation is a procedure where filler is injected into the lips to increase volume and enhance the borders of the lips. 

Depending on the patient's lips, filler can be injected into the body of the lip to improve volume. It can be injected into the border of the lip to improve symmetry and definition. It can be injected into the skin around the lip to improve wrinkles and the philtral columns. Make sure you follow-up with your doctor so they can track your progress to a safe and happy result. Safety comes first.

Should juvederm be put more in lips or around outside?

Hello, and thanks for your question. Without a photo, it's difficult to recommend a specific treatment plan. However, patients often do benefit form filler being place both within as well as around the lips. In order to determine the best treatment plan for you, I recommend an in-person consultation with an expert. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
