What Is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation gives the right shape, with a fuller and plumpier appearance eradicating all the lipstick lines. It is performed with the help of using injections and needles on the lips.

In India, lip augmentation treatments cost around 50,000 INR.

What Are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?

In the lip augmentation process, a common terminology you will learn is hyaluronic acid fillers.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are injectable dermal fillers that are penetrated into the lips during the process. The good part about hyaluronic acid is, it is naturally present in our body and when an excess of it is added during the lip augmentation process, there is no scope of any unwanted reaction.

Hyaluronic acid increases the volume of the lips and is injected on the lips or around the lip area.

Benefits Of Lip Augmentation

When uncertain about lip augmentation process, then here are the benefits that you must note:

  • Preferred Lip Volume
In the lip augmentation process, the fullness of the lip will be asked to you. Not that it will be dependent on your professional. Thus, you can easily state the kind of fullness you want on your lips.
  • Slow Treatment
It is not mandatory that your lip augmentation treatment has to happen in one shot. You can break your appointments with the doctor and go gradually with this method in different sessions.
  • No Side Effects
As you opt for hyaluronic acid fillers in the lip augmentation process, which is naturally present in your body, thus, the scope of reaction is less and so, you can count on this method to get better and fuller lips.

Though it is said that lip augmentation is a permanent solution for getting fuller lips, if you opt for this process you have to redo it in every 5-6 months once.
