Voluma is NOT appropriate for the lips
Voluma Indications - Great Filler
These products are malleable (soft) and we can shape them like clay, they now have a 2 years FDA approved longevity, and are reversible should you not like the results. This product has already changed our approach to the aging face.
We have used Voluma in other parts of the face with great success as well. I have not yet used Voluma in the "red lip", but we have used it in the cheek folds, lip folds, brow area with fantastic results.
Is Voluma appropriate for lip plumping
No. Voluma is FDA approved for the mid-face. While it's a hyaluronic acid filler, the actual particle size is large, so it needs to be injected into deeper tissue. Additionally, putting it into the lips would make them HUGE and not appropriate sized at all. Voluma should not be put into the lips. You should seek a well-qualified injector and most likely get Restylane or Perlane. You want a subtle, natural look. You don't want to look like a cartoon character.

Voluma Should Not Be Used For Lips
I understand that having thin lips may make you search for a filler that could make a dramatic difference. However, Voluma is not appropriate for lips. Voluma is used for the cheeks and midface. The molecule is large and unmalleable, which would look out of place on the lips. The lips would become too large and too hard. To reshape lips, I would use a lighter hyaluronic acid-based gel filler. Please consult with a board-certified dermatologist to discuss the lips you desire and how to obtain them.
