Even if you were blessed with full, luscious lips, hormonal changes, sun exposure and ageing all lead to a loss of volume in this area. The good news is that lip enhancement today is safe, simple and surprisingly affordable.
Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of fullness and elasticity. A dermal filler is used to replenish loss of volume, and turn back the clock.
