Which Substance is Used in Lip Filling?

Thanks to lip filling, which is a process that gives the desired shape and volume to the lips, the tissues are stimulated, repaired and the skin becomes smooth. Hyaluronic acid, which is compatible with the body, is used for lip filling. Hyaluronic acid is the most natural filler for lip aesthetics.

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers hold water molecules and add volume and shape to the area where they are made. In this way, it not only gives shape, but also gives moisture to the area where it is applied.

How is Lip Filling Made?

After the anesthetic substance affects the lip area, the filling process is performed. Quite fine-tipped injections are used for lip augmentation. This process, which is quite comfortable, ends in a short time like 15-20 minutes. It shows its effect immediately after the procedure is finished, the change in the lips is immediately noticeable.
