The lip filler treatment offered at sk:n will help you get the look you’ve always wanted by enhancing the natural contour and fullness of your lips. Read on to learn all you need to know about how lip fillers work, what they’re made of and the best filler for you.

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are a cosmetic procedure where an injection is used to make lips appear fuller. They use a specific type of dermal filler. There are many lip filler brands available on the market today, including Juvederm, which is what we use here at sk:n.

Lip fillers are used to repair or boost the volume of your lips as well as increasing your self-confidence.

What is lip filler made of?

Lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance present in the skin that when used as a filler, is low-risk and well-accepted by the body. Juvéderm is the most often used hyaluronic acid lip filler.

Using hyaluronic acid means that the filler can easily be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase if something goes wrong during the lip filler treatment. Lip fillers produced from chemicals other than hyaluronic acid are sometimes available, however, it is generally recommended that they are not suitable for the lips.

What is the best lip filler?

Here at sk:n clinics we use Juvederm, made of biocompatible, biodegradable materials and containing hyaluronic acid, which replaces the naturally present ingredient in your skin that repairs damaged tissue and absorbs water to generate a plumping effect.

To achieve the best results, we only offer the highest quality lip filler solutions, which are applied in various dosages (ml) depending on the area being treated and the results you want to achieve.
