What is Lip Augmentation?
As we age our lips start to lose collagen and fat causing them to lose their plumpness and can make us look a lot older than we are.
Lip Augmentation is a non-surgical procedure, also referred to as lip enhancement, that aims to improve the appearance of your lips by adding: Shape, Structure and Volume.
