Lip Augmentation is a non surgical procedure that aims to restore a plump appearance to ageing lips or improve the shape of the lips. As with many parts of the body, lips lose their smooth and full appearance as we get older, natural substances in our body such as hyaluronic acid decrease with age, causing dryness, wrinkles or loss of volume. Lip fillers can be used to give you youthful looking, plump lips or reduce fine lines and wrinkles arround your lips.

Fillers such as Hyaluronic Acid are a temporary and safe way to plump your lips.
The results of lip enhancement are immediate and should last at least 6 months, you may notice some slights swelling and possible bruising following treatment but these symptoms will dissapear within 7 days.
