What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip Filler is a non-surgical treatment option that improves the appearance and volume of your lips using hyaluronic acid (HA). This synthetic dermal filler mimics a substance that is naturally produced by your body to help your skin stretch and flex, while at the same time, preventing wrinkles and fine lines. When injected into your lips, the synthetic HA filler gives your lips a fuller and more plump appearance.
