Thousands of people each year seek cosmetic enhancements and a huge majority are looking for ways of how to get fuller lips. After all, the lips do play a significant role in the aesthetics of your facial features. Lips that are full, firm, and luscious tend to make people look youthful and more attractive. At least that is the standard being set in the beauty industry.
The unfortunate thing is that full lips typically do not occur naturally. For those who do have naturally full lips, aging can cause a reduction in fullness making them appear thinner and less attractive.
There is some good news, lip fillers are an easy way to restore fullness. Achieving pouty lips that will turn heads doesn’t have to be complicated, and will not require a surgical procedure.
In this guide, we will take a look at lip fillers and some alternative methods that can help you achieve fuller lips.
Plump lips are not always about the volume, but also the hydration, health, and smoothness. Studies have shown that women who have fuller lips do appear more youthful. The same study also showed that those who had fewer wrinkles also appeared healthier than others. Therefore, it really is no surprise that full lips are so highly sought after. It is just another sign of wellness.
When it comes to enhancing your lips, there are many options available. You need to understand that not all of these options will give you long-lasting results. If you are just looking to have fuller lips for the night, then some DIY techniques may be the key.
Below you can explore some of the DIY techniques that beauty enthusiasts are turning to when wanting to improve the volume of their lips from home.
If you are looking for more volume in your lips but you are unwilling to physically change them, then you may try some makeup tricks.
- Line right outside of your natural lip shape with lip liner.
- Fill in your entire lips.
- Use matte liquid lipstick on top of the liner and finish with a gloss in the middle of your bottom lip.
This will help your lips appear fuller. Works with any lip color, but if you are wanting a natural look you should go for a color that is closest to your natural lip color.

Enhancing your lips is not an unheard-of treatment these days. It is more common than you may think. Many people turn to fillers because they can provide results that will last longer than DIY techniques but will not require any type of surgery. Lip fillers may not be your first step in your journey to accomplish fuller lips, but it certainly is an option that is going to give you the most visual results on this list.
To understand why fillers are so successful you must first understand the role that hyaluronic acid plays in the appearance of our lips and skin.

Age plays a major role in the decreased appearance of full lips. However, you also have to factor in the environmental elements which affect our skin as a whole, such as the sun and air quality. Both of these things have a negative effect on the body and can decrease the hyaluronic acid within our skin.
Hyaluronic acid helps the skin keep a vibrant look that is firm and aesthetically pleasing. It is a natural substance that holds moisture and is found within our skin and lips. At a young age, levels of hyaluronic acid are high, which helps our skin and lips appear youthful and plump.
However, over time the body will decrease in the production of hyaluronic acid. This means that the lips and skin are not able to hold moisture in like it once did. During this time, collagen production will decrease, which helps the lips feel soft, firm, and resilient. As collagen levels drop the lips and skin around them will lose elasticity, which helped them look firm and full.
When the skin lacks in hyaluronic acid, wrinkles and deep lines will begin to develop. This will make you appear years older than what you are. There is good news, fillers for the lips can help restore a youthful appearance and fullness in just one appointment. This means you will not have to have several injections before you see results.
Restylane is a filler that can help improve fine lines and wrinkles in the face, lips, hands, and other areas of the body. It can only be administered by a cosmetic provider or healthcare professional.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that will naturally be absorbed by the body over time. However, even once it is absorbed, collagen production will be increased allowing you to continue to receive benefits up to a year. With follow up treatments you can continue to increase your results with Restylane. Results will vary and how long the filler will last will highly depend upon where it is injected and how your body metabolizes it.
Restylane filler will supplement the hyaluronic acid that your body produces, which will allow your lips to retain moisture and fullness. The increase in collagen production will help provide long-lasting fullness.
Restylane contains lidocaine, which is a numbing agent. This will help with any discomfort during and after your injections. The best thing about fillers is the fact that you see immediate results, do not have downtime, treatment typically only takes 20 to 30 minutes, and it provides results that cannot be obtained with over-the-counter products.
Juvéderm can turn back the hands of time while restoring volume in areas that are needed in your lips and face. There are various types of Juvéderm offered on the market and not all of them can be used in the lip area. We will review the ones that you can use in the lips further down in this section.
This series of dermal fillers have all been approved by the FDA to help improve the appearance of the skin. It is an injectable hyaluronic acid that will improve the signs of aging. Juvéderm provides both hydration, volume, and also contains lidocaine. Treatments are typically given within 15 minutes, and you can resume normal activity right after your injections.
Cosmetic results typically last between 6 to 9 months, and follow-up injections can prolong results. At your consultation with SeaMist Medspa in Rhode Island, we will review your medical history and cosmetic goals, then make suggestions on which treatments would be best for you.
