As we age our lips lose fullness and definition, however these can be restored with the subtle use of lip fillers to create a more hydrated and youthful appearance. Our appearance medicine experts perform lip enhancement in our luxury Auckland clinic to rejuvenate the face and restore its natural beauty.
Read about if lip fillers are right for you, how lip fillers restore fullness, facial rejuvenation, how we make lip enhancement look natural, and pricing.
As we age our lips lose their fullness and definition. The aging process slows down collagen production, which results in a loss of fullness in the lips. Over time our teeth and jaw also move and change which can result in a thinning of the upper lip.
As well as losing fullness, lips often lose definition as vertical lines extend above them disrupting their natural border and causing lipstick to bleed into the lines.
Lip injections using dermal fillers can be subtly used to achieve a fuller lip and eliminate vertical lines so that the mouth appears more youthful and hydrated.
During lip enhancement treatment, dermal fillers are injected into the body of the lip as well as into the surrounds. This helps to define the border of the lips, subtly add volume and to give a hydrated, smoothing effect. When using dermal fillers in the lips we are also able to increase the size of the lip, but this is not necessary if all you are looking to do is enhance the lips’ natural look.
Alongside lip augmentation we also often recommend using cosmetic injectables to soften the oral commissures (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin) and nasolabial folds (lines from the corners of the mouth to the nose).
Softening these lines helps to give the effect of overall facial rejuvenation and youthfulness. We treat the oral commissures and nasolabial folds by injecting dermal fillers to reduce the shadowing, thus restoring a smoother and more hydrated appearance.
The subtle use of cosmetic injectables in and around the lips restores the overall youthfulness of the face rather than creating an obvious enhancement.
Before booking a lip augmentation treatment, we encourage you to think about your desired lip shape, fullness, and definition. We encourage you to bring a photograph to your pre-treatment consultation where our cosmetic medicine experts will discuss how we can achieve your desired appearance using cosmetic injectables.
Booking lip enhancement for the first time can feel a little daunting, and many people feel anxious that lip injections will make their lips look too big or create a ‘trout pout’.

As a guide, 1ml of dermal filler is a good starting point, costing $850 – $950. A higher volume of filler may be required if the area surrounding the mouth also needs attention or if you are aiming for fuller lips.
