Hyaluronic Acid for Lip Enhancements
The Newest Lip Filler
Hyaluronic acids are vital because it make your cells remain intact and absorb water which adds volume and plumpness. Younger skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid which keeps it supple and plump. A decrease in hyaluronic acid correlates with age. Diminishing hyaluronic acid causes the skin to lose elasticity and volume, which is when folds and wrinkles start to appear. One of the features of your face that will age are your lips. Nowadays, numerous dermal fillers can be injected to your lips, and around the mouth, aside from getting botox and lip surgeries.
We believe if you decide to go the injection route, that hyaluronic acid is the best choice for lip augmentation. First, it is a naturally occurring substance within the body. Second, it attracts larger amounts of water which increases the volume of your lips. Hyaluronic acid is processed and gets broken down by the body; hence, the results are not permanent. However, studies have shown that long term use of hyaluronic acid will improve the performance of skin. Collagen is among the most common dermal fillers, but its use is getting lesser and lesser since the discovery of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is safer, and the effects last longer compared to collagen injections.
Advantages of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
- Control: Unlike fat injections and implants, the amount of HA injected is controlled. You can demand how much lip volume you want. You can add volume but retain the natural contour of your lips.

- Redness: Redness and tenderness around the mouth may be experienced, but the side effects are temporary and last only a few days.
