How does lip filler work?
There are many types of injectable fillers that are used to augment the shape of your lips. Due to its many benefits, the most commonly used substance for lip filler treatments is hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid can enhance the appearance of lips by modifying three qualities
The shape of lips
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in our body. Its purpose is to hydrate tissues and is found in all tissues of the body. It works by attracting the water molecules to the tissue it’s in, thus adding volume. When injected into lips, the lips will expand in volume and become fuller. It also helps your lips hydrate from within resulting in natural, plump and beautiful looking lips.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by our body. Therefore, hyaluronic acid lip fillers will add a natural looking fullness to your lips with reduced risk of bruising and swelling.
Rare Allergic Reactions
