Fine Lines at the Upper Lip

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! It is very hard to give opinion without seeing you in person. However as a general suggestion, I usually inject Botox at the upper lip with very small doses to prevent the upper lip line from getting deeper. I also fill the upper lip lines themselves with very thick Hyaluronic acid (HA) filler such a Restylane or Belotero.

For lip augmentation, I use HA fillers such as Restylane (which lasts around 6 to 8 months) or Juvederm (which lasts about a year) or even Voluma (which lasts for around 2 years). I hope it helps and good luck!
