Lip fillers are among the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the country. It involves injecting the lips with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to combat lip lines, correct asymmetry, improve lip volume, and provide you with a more youthful, attractive smile. Hyaluronic acid is a key compound in youthful skin. It binds with water molecules to plump and moisturize depleted contours, which is why it’s such an important component of lip fillers. The HA used in lip fillers comes with a very low risk of an allergic reaction, so that almost anyone can use lip fillers.

After receiving lip fillers Kirkland and Bellevue patients can experience an improved appearance, however it cannot make you resemble a celebrity or another person. Our team will meet with you in private to assess your candidacy for lip fillers.
