Enhance your inner beauty with lips that speak volumes
Lip augmentation most commonly known as lip fillers is a treatment used with hyaluronic acid to increase the size of one’s lips. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body as it is naturally produced biologically. The results of lip injections, generally, tend to look natural and are naturally dissolved and absorbed by the body within 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of filler used.
Lip fillers are a non surgical procedure that aims to create volume and shape, as well as restore hydration and can reshape lips with signs of aging. Most patients get dermal fillers for shape, structure and volume. The injectable is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural, structural component found in your body. Dermal filler is semi-permanent and most patients will come back 1-2 times a year for touch-ups.
The most common dermal fillers used for this treatment are Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, Prevelle Silk, and HylaForm, among others. Some are better for structure or provide more volume, while others may give a softer look or improve fine lines in the lips. During your consultation, your injector will inform you of the dermal filler that will work best for you and your lips.
