What is Lip Filler ?

Lip Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. It helps increase volume in your lips. These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called “Hyaluronic Acid Fillers” the most common dermal filler used today.

Most providers use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based filler which is injected into the lip to increase volume and size. HA fillers work by not only plumping the lip directly, but also trapping water within the lips for a natural, plump pout.

Why do you carry so many different fillers?

Dr. Kay always uses a hyaluronic acid gel filler when patients come to our Pasadena or Beverly Hills locations. Some of the fillers Dr. Kay use for the lips include Revanesse Versa for a plump, soft pout or Restylane Silk for natural lip rejuvenation.
