Hi Blondie, thank you for the question.

Lines that develop on either corner of the mouth are usually due to dimples and may be difficult to get 100% smoothness. They typically respond well to dermal fillers especially when done correctly. Your best approach for fuller lips is to consider fillers (preferably Juvederm or Restylane – and ask the doctor to see the syringe so you can verify the name of the filler used) but once again one should consult an experienced injector for a natural end effect.
