What you need to know about lip enhancement
There are things that lip augmentation can do, and things that it can’t; rather, things you may not want it to. On a cosmetic level, the intent of lip enhancement is to bring out better definition and prominence. Neither should be so obvious that you look like you got kissed from the far end of a vacuum. If the size and shape of your lips causes you to feel self-conscious, this procedure may be beneficial for you. Whether it is your upper lip that is thin or it is that both lips have lost fullness that you once enjoyed, we are happy to help you regain feelings of confidence in your facial aesthetic.

Benefits of Temporary Fillers
There are several reasons why dermal fillers are popular for wrinkle reduction and volumizing the face. Currently, the filler of choice for lip augmentation is one formulated with hyaluronic acid. This is because the natural sugar compound plumps and contours by binding to water molecules. The effects are immediately visible. This enables us to perfect the shape of the lips, and avoid overfilling. Over time, this acid product gradually breaks down. However, many people notice that the increase production of fibroblasts increases the longevity of results from each session.
