Thin lips are a common concern for women of all ages. Younger women are often looking to add subtle plumpness or volume to their normal lip shape. In others, the lips have gotten thinner with age. What’s more, thin lips can be made worse by sun exposure, smoking, and dehydration. Hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in our lips, declines as we get older, further promoting volume loss.
Dermal fillers for thin lips are an excellent solution that provides immediate results. When using dermal fillers for lip injections, how long you want the desired effect to last will impact the choice of filler, as well as your individual goals. We strive for a balanced, natural, luscious pout!
Did you know that fillers aren’t the only way to achieve the perfect pout? HydraFacial lip service exfoliates and primes lips with peppermint oil and peony extract to create a light plump. Yup, we’re addicted too (and it comes with a special take-home gift).

How is Lip Augmentation Performed?
At Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, we place a high value on the naturalness of your results. We go out of our way to deliver a lip enhancement outcome that is nuanced, elegant, and personalized. Below is an overview of several techniques we may use to beautifully augment and celebrate your smile:
As we age, the lips get thinner and drier, necessitating a cosmetic intervention. Lip fillers can not only help to increase lip volume, but they can also improve lip color, decrease vertical lip lines, improve lip symmetry, refine the lip texture, and help revitalize your smile and your spirit.
Most lip fillers contain HA, a compound that naturally binds to water molecules. Hyaluronic acid is found in the human body and is responsible for the youthful, supple, radiant contours of youth. With aging, our supply of HA dwindles, but lip fillers can replace what is lost.
When injected, lip fillers create a plumper, more feminine pout without downtime or discomfort. With so many celebrities and public figures today displaying the trend of luscious, full lips, we at Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, want to help our patients stay in vogue and achieve the ultra-sexy smile they dream of.
The PERK lip serum is made with peppermint oil, peony extract, and aloe leaf extract and is known to provide a sultry pout with softly hydrated lip contours. The HydraFacial PERK treatment is the perfect way to prepare your lips for an important upcoming event, such as a birthday, wedding, date, concert, or television appearance. It is also an ideal solution for combating the effects that winter weather can have on the lips. In the colder months, the lips often get cracked, chapped, dehydrated, and damaged, not to mention stripped of their natural, youthful redness.
Results can last up to 30 days on average. During your treatment, a roller-flex is used to remove the lips’ surface layer of dead skin cells while at the same time infusing the lips with antioxidants. The lips are thus cleansed, hydrated, enhanced, and infused with vital nutrients. One of the nicest things about PERK is that the treatment is perfectly safe to use in combination with lip fillers. This multifaceted approach to lip augmentation can help optimize your outcome tremendously. PERK is a great addition to any HydraFacial treatment, which uses several stages of skin repair to revitalize the complexion (cleansing, exfoliating, pore extraction, hydrating, protecting, and infusing the skin with nutrients.)
