Do you think fuller lips would bring balance to your facial features or give you a more sensual or refreshed look? You’re not alone. Full lips are on trend for all genders. The demand for lip augmentation/lip injections has never been higher, and there is a significant market for “lip plumping” products and treatments.  

Unfortunately, most of the “solutions” you find online only produce temporary (and sometimes uncomfortable) swelling at best. If you’re looking for a lasting solution, Mabrie Facial Institute is here to help you sort through your options and understand why lip filler is the only effective, lasting, and reliable nonsurgical solution. 

Lip Filler Before and After 

At MFI, our lip filler style is a San Francisco aesthetic. That means fashionable, well-groomed, and above all, natural. See for yourself!

Can You Get Bigger/Fuller Lips Without Filler? 

According to social media, the solution to getting fuller lips without filler (or surgery) might be right in your pantry cupboard.  A quick Google search turns up a long list of options for at-home lip augmentation, including: 

  • Lip plumping glosses, lipsticks, and serums 
  • Lip scrubs 
  • Cinnamon oil, peppermint oil, chili flakes 

All of these basically sting or irritate your lips and increase blood flow to the area, causing your lips to swell. The results are temporary and unpredictable. Some people don’t swell much; others can have an intense (and sometimes unpleasant) reaction. Lip scrubs also make your lips look a little smoother by exfoliating dead skin. 

There are also more invasive options: 

  • BOTOX lip flip 
  • Lip threading 
  • Surgical lip augmentation 

Lip flip and lip threading don’t have the track record of safety and results that lip fillers do, and they aren’t reversible, so if you’re unhappy, you have to wait for the results to eventually go away. And of course, surgical results are permanent, not to mention expensive, painful, and not adjustable. 

On the other hand, lip fillers are safe, predictable, lasting, and reversible. 

Why Do People Get Lip Filler? 

Most people don’t get lip injections so they can look like Instagram models. Our San Francisco lip filler patients want lips that are just a little more defined and prominent. Here are a few reasons you might be considering lip enhancement: 

Enhancing Your Smile 

Thin lips can sometimes “disappear” when you smile. Fuller lips create a nice frame for your smile, and many people who get lip filler feel more confident taking photos and selfies after treatment.  

Balancing Facial Features 

You may feel that bigger lips balance your other facial features. Your lips may seem too thin or narrow to work harmoniously with your eyes, nose, cheeks, and chin. A little filler is a great way to enhance facial proportions. 

Creating Symmetry 

It’s pretty common to have asymmetrical or crooked lips. Strategically adding lip volume can balance your mouth from side to side or top to bottom. 

Lip Filler for Lasting, Natural-Looking Lip Augmentation 

No matter what your reason for wanting bigger/fuller lips, the experts at MFI are here to help you get the look you want. 

Precision, Professionalism, and Patience 

Full, sensual, balanced lips require the artistic application of filler. The Injectors at MFI use trusted and proven fillers from the Restylane® and JUVEDERM® families and stay within the natural curves of your lips so that your results look like the lips you were born with.  

Another way we ensure you’re happy with your results is by layering smaller amounts of filler over the course of two appointments. You’ll never see anyone walking out of our office with duck lips! 

Restoring Lost Volume 

Lips can lose volume due to weight loss or aging. A little lip filler can make a tremendous difference when it comes to refreshing your look. If you’re concerned about wrinkles, thinning, and other age-related lip concerns, we have a treatment for that, too.
