My lips are very wrinkly

Is this something that dermal fillers can help with?

The reason that your lips have become wrinkly is because of loss of volume, which makes the skin and lips appear “hollow and empty”, and also due to loss of collagen. Collagen is the protein in the skin and lips that keeps it “tight and elastic” and prevents wrinkles from forming. As we age we tend to lose volume and collagen, which can be especially noticeable in the lips. Smoking and sun exposure can make these fine lines and wrinkles much worse. Replacing this lost volume with dermal fillers will definitely help in the appearance of your lips.
