Lip Augmentation in Ottawa

Fuller lips are associated with youth, beauty, and sensuality. In fact, studies have found that women with fuller and firmer lips are perceived as younger than they really are. With naturally fuller lips, you can continue to appear young even with other signs of aging.

Get Fuller, Natural-Looking Lips

Unfortunately, as we age our lips naturally become thinner, due to loss of collagen and natural hyaluronic acid. Luckily, there are lip augmentation treatments to get fuller lips that look natural.

By using small amounts of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Dr. Caroline Tosoni can:

  • Restore your lips back to their original volume
  • Add additional volume
  • Redefine the lip contour
  • Soften fine lines around the mouth
  • Restore symmetry in uneven lips
  • Define your Cupid’s bow
  • Reverse a downward smile
