Many individuals have turned to DIY lip rejuvenation methods to pursue plumper lips.
From derma-rollers and collagen lip masks to natural oils, exfoliating scrubs, and lip-plumping devices, a range of budget-friendly options are available for those seeking lip enhancements. Still, they are not the best way to enhance and rejuvenate your lips.
While some of these at-home treatments may work briefly, it is always better to trust the professionals when changing anything on your body. You may be doing more harm than good by not consulting your dermatologist about effective ways to rejuvenate your lips.

Lip rejuvenation is the umbrella term for a set of cosmetic procedures to enhance the appearance of the lips. This procedure aims to create fuller, smoother, and more youthful-looking lips.
Lip rejuvenation treatment may involve various techniques to address the following:
While some individuals are born with thin or asymmetrical lips, many experience them due to aging. Our body naturally produces less collagen as we age – the protein primarily responsible for smooth, plump lips.
Collagen and other fibers hold the skin in place, keeping it taut and full. When we begin producing less, we experience a loss in volume and sagging skin throughout our body– lips included.
Sun damage is another factor that may affect lip volume, texture, and structure. Over time, sun exposure can cause collagen breakdown. If you need another reason, besides skin cancer, to protect your skin from UV rays, remember that sun damage is the number one cause of premature aging.
When it comes to lip rejuvenation, several exciting options are available to achieve the lip enhancement you desire. Each option is designed to create specific lip aesthetics that cater to individual preferences and goals.
Here are a few popular lip rejuvenation choices:
The goddess lips treatment could be your ideal choice if you’re seeking lips that exude glamour. This technique adds a generous amount of volume to the lips, creating a plump appearance. The focus is achieving a well-defined heart-shaped pout that exudes sensuality and confidence.
Supermodel lips might be the way for those desiring a lip look that balances natural beauty and noticeable enhancement. This approach adds a moderate volume to the lips, enhancing their natural shape while maintaining a balance with the rest of your facial features. The aim is to achieve the coveted “perfect pout” that’s alluring and sophisticated.
Princess lips may be your best option if you’re drawn to a more understated yet refined appearance. This technique enhances lip volume while keeping the results natural and aligned with your facial features. The goal is to achieve a subtle fullness that enhances your lips’ inherent beauty, providing a youthful and fresh appearance.

Yes, as with any medical procedure, side effects may occur. Typically, people who undergo lip rejuvenation treatment may experience the following:
In rare cases, allergic reactions to the injectable or infection may occur.
The pain level experienced during lip rejuvenation treatments can vary from person to person and depends on the procedure being performed.
Most dermal filler injections for lip enhancement contain a numbing agent (lidocaine) to minimize pain. In other cases, a numbing cream is applied directly to the lips before injection.
While there might be a slight discomfort during the injection, the numbing effect usually makes the procedure tolerable for many individuals. You may experience mild to moderate lip pain up to a week following treatment.
To manage post-injection discomfort:
It’s important to note that while discomfort is common, severe pain or pain that worsens over time might indicate a potential complication, allergy, or infection and should be discussed with your doctor right away.
Several types of injectables are commonly used for lip rejuvenation to enhance the appearance of the lips.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2.4 million cases of soft tissue fillers were reported in 2015. The major portion of this number was from products made of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body, especially in the skin tissue. The primary function of hyaluronic acid is to cushion different body parts, hydrate the skin, and fill in the area around the eyes.
In addition to the hyaluronic acid fillers, there are other options, such as Radiesse, which uses calcium hydroxyapatites—a natural component found in the body. Like other injectables, Radiesse fills in the lines on and around the mouth.
When considering lip rejuvenation with injectables, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified medical professional who can assess your individual needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment based on your goals and medical history.
The choice of injectable and technique will depend on factors such as the desired outcome, the amount of volume enhancement needed, and the specific characteristics of your lips. That’s why our team of dermatologists is here to help you determine what kind of filler will work best for your lip rejuvenation treatment.
