Do you long for the perfect pout – lusher, better defined lips that captivate at first glance? Have you noticed your lip shape losing definition as you age, causing lipstick to bleed outside the lines?
If you want to accentuate your lips for a more sensuous, youthful appearance, a lip filler treatment focused on enhancing the vermilion border may provide the solution.
At Ethos Aesthetics & Wellness, Dr. Soni specializes in lip enhancements using dermal fillers injected precisely along the vermilion border. Read on to discover how this transformative lip contouring treatment can restore the perfect vermilion lip line you’ve been longing for.
The vermilion border is the crisp line between your lips and skin, outlining their shape. As we age, this border becomes less defined, causing the lips to appear thinner and feathered.
Maintaining a well-defined vermilion border is considered important for facial aesthetics, as it improves the appearance of the lips and lower third of the face.
Enhancing the vermilion border with subtle dermal filler can restore a crisply defined lip line for a more youthful, sensuous appearance.
Lip filler injected into the vermilion border can help define the lip line and make it look more full and youthful. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are commonly used for this purpose due to their safety and ability to provide natural looking results.
The filler is injected in tiny amounts along the vermilion border to enhance the definition and shape of the lips. This provides a subtle enhancement that accentuates the lips you already have.

When considering lip filler for enhancing the vermilion border, the choice of brand is important. Below are two excellent options, each with their own benefits and trade-offs.
|A thicker filler less prone to migration. It enables excellent manipulation of shape and is great for a crisp, enhanced vermilion border. The trade-off is a slightly longer recovery period.
|A smooth, thin filler providing subtle enhancement of the natural lip contours with an easy recovery. Less risk of migration but may not define the border as dramatically.
Dr. Soni will help you select the optimal filler to achieve your aesthetic goals with a customized vermilion border treatment.
Injecting filler precisely along this border is key for creating beautifully defined lips. Here are the steps Dr. Soni follows:
There are a few specialized techniques Dr. Soni may utilize for enhancing the vermilion border:
The Russian lip technique involves making very small microdroplet injections of soft, fluid fillers like Restylane Kysse directly into the vermilion border. This helps define and accentuate the border, creating a sharper demarcation between the red part of the lip and the normal skin.
The microdroplets outline the lip shape and can correct asymmetry. It provides a subtle enhancement that still looks natural.
The lipstick bleed correction technique is used to treat the feathering and bleeding of lipstick that can happen over time. A thicker, more viscous filler like Restylane Kysse is injected directly into the vermilion border, especially along the lower border.
This adds structure and bolsters the border to help lipstick maintain a crisp line. It also corrects blurring to make the lip line look more youthful.
The lip corner lift focuses on the outer corners of the mouth. Filler injected just below the corners lifts and contours any drooping. It can restore an upward tilt to downturned corners, improving a sad lip appearance. This creates a subtle rejuvenation and lift.
The Love lip technique gets its name from the lip shape the injections can create. Precise filler is placed above the upper vermilion border to augment the upper lip and below the lower border to subtly enlarge the lower lip. The combination creates slightly fuller lips with a kissable pout, while maintaining the Cupid’s bow and lip shape.
Custom shaping allows the injector to artistically choose areas to augment along the vermilion border based on the patient’s existing anatomy and aesthetic goals. The above techniques may be combined for highly customized and natural looking enhancement of the lip borders.
With an artistic eye, Dr. Soni selects the ideal technique to give you fuller, better defined lips.

As with any cosmetic procedure, there can be side effects from lip filler at the vermilion border. These are usually minor but can include:
With Dr. Soni’s expertise, side effects are minimized for beautiful, natural-looking results.

While it is possible to get lip filler above the vermilion border, injections right along the border itself are considered safer for a natural look. Subtle injections just above the lips’ red vermilion borders are commonly used to achieve a more enhanced, plumper pout without distorting the lip shape.
Lip filler results along the vermilion border typically last 6-12 months. The duration depends on factors like your body’s rate of filler absorption and the type used. With Dr. Soni’s expert injection technique, and maintenance touch-ups, results can be long-lasting.
Most patients can return to normal activities 1-3 days after vermilion border lip filler treatment. Swelling and bruising will peak around 2 days post-procedure and then gradually subside over the next 7-14 days. Patients should avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise during the recovery period to minimize side effects like irritation and increased swelling.
Patients typically experience mild discomfort during vermilion border lip filler injections. A topical numbing cream is applied 20-30 minutes prior to the procedure to maximize patient comfort. Any pain during the injections and afterwards is minimal. Over the counter oral pain relievers can be used as needed to manage discomfort.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks of vermilion border lip filler going wrong or having suboptimal results in unskilled hands. Potential problems include asymmetry, extensive bruising, lumpiness, and distortion of the natural lip shape if the filler is improperly placed along the vermilion border.
