Because we like our lip injections to look very natural, we accentuate the lips rather than overfill them. Generally we inject the “vermillion border” – the border between the lip and surrounding skin – rather than the body of the lips themselves. Using Restylane to inject the vermillion border allows us to accentuate and draw attention to the lips without making them appear too puffy or oversized.
Injecting the vermillion border rolls the lips outward slightly, making them appear larger without the puffiness of injecting directly into the body of the lip.
