Are you looking for a lip augmentation achieved with dermal fillers? Miami Beach Laser and Aesthetics can help you achieve your desired result for a lip enhancement treatment. Some people simply have naturally thin lips and want a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable. Lip Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. Dermal Fillers that contain hyaluronic acid are most commonly used in this area. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. When injected into the lips, it will increase the volume, giving them fullness and definition. Michelle O’Neill, PA-C, is a lip augmentation specialist in Miami.
