Lip fillers offer a simple, non-surgical way to enhance your lips and restore a more youthful appearance. Lip injectables were first created in the early 19th century and were made of fat. They were initially used to help reconstruct lips due to facial deformities. Over the years, fillers have advanced to offer a natural way to plump up your lips without the need for surgery or a lengthy recovery time.
