Achieve Volumized Lips with JUVÉDERM® Injections
Lip injections, also called lip fillers, are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available today. With injectable lip fillers, men and women can enjoy instantaneous, natural-looking, long-lasting results that help to add volume to thin lips, enhance the shape of the mouth, and make other desired improvements. At Scottsdale Plastic Surgeons, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul K. Holden and our dedicated skin clinic team offer the most in-demand and effective lip filler products, including the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers, to give patients the plump and juicy lips they’ve always wanted.

What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are injections of dermal filler product into the lips for the purpose of enhancing the size, shape, symmetry, and other features of the upper and/or lower lips. Most often, lip fillers are used to add or restore volume to either naturally thin lips or lips that have lost some of their fullness over time — a common side effect of aging. Lip injections are not permanent, though they do provide long-lasting results, with many patients able to enjoy their newly enhanced look for up to a year or longer before repeat injections are needed.
Which filler is best for the lips?
There are several options available when it comes to choosing the right lip filler for you. Arguably, the most popular filler to use on the lips is JUVÉDERM. More specifically, JUVÉDERM Volbella™ XC and JUVÉDERM Ultra XC are widely used for lip enhancement, thanks to the remarkably natural, smooth look and feel they provide. JUVÉDERM fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which mimics the body’s natural supply of HA, adding to the natural appearance and texture of the fillers. In addition, HA fillers can be dissolved with another injectable – hyaluronidase – if needed.
Where else can fillers be used besides the lips?
There’s no question that the lips are one of the most common treatment areas for fillers, but there are many other features that can be enhanced with injectable dermal fillers, including:
- Hollow cheeks
- Deep-set wrinkles and lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Sunken circles under the eyes
- Weak jawline
- Setback chin
- Aged hands
Unlike BOTOX® and other injectable wrinkle relaxers, which can be drawn up in specific quantities based on the patient’s needs and goals, JUVÉDERM filler injections come in pre-filled syringes that cannot be shared or “saved” for the next patient. For patients who may not require a full syringe in the lips, the remaining filler can be used in these areas, giving the patients an even more enhanced new look and using up the full syringe for the maximum benefit.
Are there any alternatives to JUVÉDERM lip fillers?

During your consultation for lip fillers in Scottsdale, AZ, our knowledgeable skin clinic team will discuss all of your lip filler choices in greater detail and help you decide which one may be most appropriate for you.
