How Do Lip Fillers work?

Lip augmentation makes your lips look fuller. The procedure can be done in one of two ways: by adding materials to the lips through fat grafts or the use of hyaluronic acid injectable dermal fillers. Lip augmentation requires very little recovery time and the bruising and swelling will subside within two weeks.

With the rising popularity of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, more and more people are opting for dermal filler treatments.

Injectable dermal fillers are temporary and typically last 6-12 months before another injection is necessary. The Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can revitalize the whole lip when injected in proper amounts and in the correct depth of tissue.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a 'water loving' sugar molecule that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, and that makes it an excellent hydrator. In the dermal fillers, this molecule is presented in a gel form, which once injected, stays there and leads to smoothening of lines, plumping, and deep hydration of the lips.

Hyaluronic acid is present in our tissues naturally as well. So over time, the HA-based dermal fillers are typically broken down by the body. The kind of filler used is usually a softer one which doesn't hamper our natural expressions and gives a softer and natural feel.
