What Is Lip Augmentation & What Can It Help?

 Lip Augmentation Lip augmentation can improve the shape of your lips and increase their volume, helping to bring your aesthetic vision to life. If you are interested in this procedure for yourself, there are a few things you should know.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are a type of injection made in the inner lip, the edge of the lip, and the outer mouth to reduce visible signs of aging. Many types of lip fillers are currently available to choose from. The specific product that you choose for your lip fillers will depend on your desired effect. Some of the common ones include lip fillers made from:

In addition, you can have injections that are specifically created using a mix of your own fat and polymethylmethacrylate. Many of these products work by increasing volume by stimulating the production of collagen. When hyaluronic acid is injected into your lips, for example, it attracts water from nearby tissues to increase the volume of your lips.


Understanding the expected results of lip augmentation before deciding if this procedure is right for you is essential. Lip fillers are a non-surgical option that requires no downtime while providing immediate results. However, your lip volume should continue increasing for days or weeks after treatment.

Our trained professionals inject lip filler at precise locations and dosages to restore volume naturally and organically. After treatment, you can typically return to your daily routine once your treatment is complete. Furthermore, you can easily fit an appointment for lip augmentation into a busy day.


The effects of lip fillers are long-lasting, but they are not typically considered a permanent solution for thinning lips. These injections can last from six months to a year, but there is considerable variation between individual patients. Regardless of how long it takes, your body will eventually absorb hyaluronic acid. When you notice the results wearing off, you can return to the clinic for follow-up treatment or allow the fillers to dissolve naturally.
