Time and gravity take their toll on all parts of our bodies. For our lips, we naturally lose collagen and dermal elasticity. As a result, our lips thin, shorten, and fold into our mouths. Our cupids bow is no longer as prominent and we lose the appearance of a full lip. The goal of a lip filler is to reshape the lips and replace lost collagen and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. Hydraulic acid fillers are FDA approved, typically soft & gel-like giving natural-looking results. The results are temporary, lasting 4-6 months or longer before the body gradually & naturally absorbs the particles. Most HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during & after treatment. The goal of course, is a natural result that highlights your beauty.
