The look must be beautiful and natural. Lip augmentation, the perfect way to go !!!
Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning over time, our team of doctors and registered nurses can help help you to achieve your desired lip size.
Lip injections have been procedure used to increase fullness in the lips by using injectable gel like substance containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body and is the most common type of filler used to get a plumper pout. The type of filler chosen depends entirely on what your goal is for the treatment, whether it be to balance out the shape of your lips or add fullness or structure.
As we age, we lose volume round the mouth giving us smokers lines, these can also be softened by use of fillers.

Causes of lip lines: In our early 20s, scholars say we produce 1 percent less of collagen. As the reduction of collagen production increases our skin becomes thinner and also losses its elasticity. The lips that were plump and puffy during young age become deflated and elongated.
The sun exposure also does not do us any favour either as it is the major cause of photoageing. The lines around the mouth do develop whether you smoked or not though sometimes they are aggravated by smoking.
The size desired basically depends on the amount of filler injected, it all varies per individual. You can achieve a good desired size by just getting 0.5ml. The more the amount of mls injected the more volume one gets, but remember, the outcome must remain looking natural.
