Hyaluronic acid fillers
We provide The Best Results in South Florida.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips.
These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation.
There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.
These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called “hyaluronic acid fillers.”
Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today. The newer options are safer and the effects last longer.
Fat injections and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren’t used as much today because the results vary and there is a greater risk of side effects.

Benefits of Fillers
Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.
The benefits of using hyaluronic acid fillers include:
Control over lip volume
The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so the doctor has better control over how much lip volume is created.
Gradual pace of treatment.
The injections can be given gradually during different appointments until the desired results are achieved.
Reasonably lasting results.
The results are reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent.
Allergic reaction unlikely.
Because hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to those found in the body, they are unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. But if you are allergic to lidocaine, tell your doctor before being treated.
There may be less bruising and swelling compared to other dermal fillers.
