Thin Upper Lip Treatment
Although conditions like thin upper lip syndrome are genetic, everyone experiences thinning of the lips as they age. You may have noticed that you have a thin upper lip, meaning the height of your upper lip border (the vermilion line) is reduced.
As your body’s natural production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin decrease with age, this decline leads to the loss of plumpness and causes a thin upper lip.

What Causes the Upper Lip to Thin?
So what causes thin upper lip issues? Genetic factors play a significant role, but for most people, environmental and aging factors are the issue.
One of the leading thin upper lip causes is a decrease in collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein the body naturally produces. It is responsible for skin hydration, elasticity, and plumpness. Production of this protein decreases each year once you reach your 20s, affecting your lips.
Sun exposure is another cause of thinning upper lips. Getting too much sun causes collagen to break down and, over time, leads to thinning lips.
Types of Treatment for Thin Upper Lip
Treatments that we offer include:
Lip Filler Treatment
A thin upper lip filler is an injection that adds volume to your lips. The most common lip fillers are those that contain substances such as hyaluronic acid.
Of the many lip injections for thin upper lip issues, Juvéderm is our preferred choice. Made with hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm is an FDA-approved filler that helps support and shape your lips.
Botox, FDA-approved injections that stop the nerve signals that make muscles move, can help lift the upper lip, often referred to as a “lip flip.” When used with Juvéderm fillers, Botox helps shape your upper lip.
Cost of Thin Upper Lip Treatments
We use Juvéderm Volbella to fill in thin upper lips. Each syringe is available for only $800 at our clinic.
Botox units to help raise the upper lip’s vermilion line cost $15 each. We also offer VIP rates of $12 per unit.

Frequently Asked Questions About Thin Upper Lip Treatment
What Is Post-Treatment Care Like?
After receiving thin upper lip injections, we recommend you apply ice to the treated area and that you stay hydrated. Avoid strenuous exercise and hot temperatures for at least 24 hours after the injections. We also suggest you avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen.
Are Treatments Painful?
Some patients feel a slight pinch or some discomfort, but it is brief. Our estheticians will do their best to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
How Do I Prepare for the Procedure?
A couple of days before the injections, stop taking blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen and aspirin and avoid vitamin E and fish oil supplements. You should also avoid alcohol for at least a day before the injections.
Will I See Results Immediately?
Although everyone is different and results can vary, most of our patients see visible changes to their lips within 24 to 48 hours.
How Long Does Recovery Take?
Any pain you experience should go away after 12 to 24 hours. Swelling can take up to a week to fully fade, though most people do not have much swelling after 48 hours.
