Aging and the Lips

As we age, the lips and the tissues around the mouth lose volume as fat, collagen, elastin, and muscle mass diminish. There is less structural support and the mucosa becomes thinner which can cause:

  • Wrinkled lips 
  • Vertical lines framing the mouth (a.k.a. “smoker’s lines”) 
  • Thinning or flattening of the upper lip and “Cupid’s bow” 
  • Downward turned corners of the mouth 
  • Loss of fullness 

Our Solution for Aging Lips: Lip Fillers

At Mabrie Facial Institute, we specialize in natural-looking lip fillers that reflects the “San Francisco aesthetic”—fashionable, well-groomed, and above all, subtle and natural. Using lip fillers from the Restylane® and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® family of products, our Injectors create a soft, balanced, youthful look.  We also use a flexible cannula during your treatment for your safety and comfort.   

In some cases, we add neuromodulators such as BOTOX® to decrease wrinkles and reduce pursing or tension in this area.

Smoothing Wrinkles

Case #540 Before
Case #540 After

Age-related volume loss can cause the lips to become wrinkled and lose their youthful glow. Subtle, artful application of fillers brings back a smooth, healthy-looking texture that reflects light and shows off your favorite gloss. 

Increasing Lip Height

Case #677 Before
Case #677 After

While some people have naturally thin lips, others see their lips become thinner with age. We use soft, smooth fillers like Restylane Kysse®, designed just for the lips to create smooth, balanced, proportional lip augmentation results.

Lifting Downturned Corners of Mouth

Case #34 Before
Case #34 After

Volume loss in the lips can cause you to look like you have a “permanent frown.” The careful application of fillers can lift downturned corners for a more youthful, pleasant expression.

Smoothing “Smoker’s” Lines

Case #384 Before
Case #384 After

You don’t have to smoke to have vertical smoker’s lines around your mouth—it’s a common sign of aging. We use fillers such as JUVÉDERM Ultra to smooth the area around the mouth for a much more youthful look.

Restoring Fullness at Any Age

Case #275 Before
Case #275 After

You’re never too old for beautiful lips! We were able to give this 60-year-old woman the full, soft, lips she had when she was younger, without looking artificial or “overdone.”

Your Procedure

A rejuvenated mouth brings balance to your look and involves so much more than just full lips. Our San Francisco aesthetic is balanced, subtle, and although you’ll love the results, no one will know that you’ve had lip fillers. To achieve this, your treatment is typically completed over 2 or more appointments.

Initial Appointment

Our highly trained associates take their time to introduce, small, safe quantities of filler so that your results never look artificial or overdone. If neuromodulators are part of your treatment plan, we inject these with a very fine needle at strategic points.

Refinement Appointment

We schedule your refinement appointment for 1 to 3 months later, when your swelling is completely resolved. Your injector will make any small adjustments needed. For more about what to expect, visit Your Treatment Timeline.

For volume loss around the mouth, such as marionette lines, jowls, and oral commissures, many people opt for our Lower Face Rejuvenation package to complement their lip fillers.


Our Full Face 360° package is perfectly designed to help you look your absolute best. From the top of your forehead to your chin and jawline, your Wow-worthy results will help you feel confidently ready for anything (from any angle).

Lip Fillers FAQs

How much does lip filler for wrinkle smoothing cost?

The lip filler procedure typically costs from $1,000 to $2,000 at Mabrie Facial Institute, depending on Injector. If additional syringes are needed, we offer reduced pricing. Qualified borrowers may be eligible for 0% financing for 6 to 12 months through and medical financing. 

Do lip fillers hurt? 

Most of our lip filler patients report that they are comfortable during their treatment. The fillers we use for lip contouring and rejuvenation are pre-mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic. We can also apply numbing cream to temporarily minimize the sensation in your lips. Additionally, the flexible microcannula keeps you safer, less bruised, and more comfortable.

How long does swelling last after lip injections?

Most of the swelling you experience after lip filler injections should go away within about 2 weeks. Some people have a little bit of residual swelling for up to 4 weeks. It is common for lips to swell unevenly, so be patient and keep applying your cool and warm compresses.

How long do lip fillers last?

Visible results from lip augmentation with dermal fillers typically last between 4 to 6 months before requiring a touch-up.
