Products containing hyaluronic acid can be of different intensities. Hyaluronic acid retains a high amount of moisture. This method provides a more beautiful appearance by increasing the brightness and volume of the lip.

Fat tissues taken from the hip, abdomen or thighs of the person with the surgical method are processed in the laboratory and converted into fillers. It is a very safe method because tissues taken from the person’s own body are used. The risk of causing side effects and allergic reactions is very low.
