You must have heard about hyaluronic acid (HA) by now. It has become a household name. You make hyaluronic acid in your body naturally. Newborn skin is richly packed with hyaluronic acid. Females have more hyaluronic acid than males. It has been estimated that 1 gram of hyaluronic acid can hold 6 liters of water! You have approximately 10 to 15 grams in your body. When this level is high, your skin looks very firm, supple, and turgid. As you age, you make less hyaluronic acid, this leads your skin to look shallow, dry, and shrunken.

Hyaluronic acid is a viscous carbohydrate gel substance. It helps the body lubricate movable parts. It moistens all linings of the body, greases all the muscles and arteries, and cushions the body tissues where needed!

In the body, specifically the skin, hyaluronic acid birth and death cycles are just 1 day. Isn’t that interesting? So how does it really work when you inject hyaluronic acid into the lips for lip augmentation? It will not be a good idea if your lip enhancement treatment lasts just 1 day!

Well, to make hyaluronic acid last longer for lip augmentation, the lab-grown native HA form must be altered. The medical HA fillers are made of  bundles of HA linked together by what you might think of as “glue”- and that is how you make HA fillers last longer. The stronger the glue, the longer the HA filler lasts in the body. Hyaluronic_acid_

Hyaluronic acid is synthesized in the laboratory from either animal source (roster comb) or non-animal source (bacterial fermentation). This is why you can potentially develop an inflammatory reaction to hyaluronic lip fillers- even with the best method in the world, it is just impossible to remove all the allergens from the animal or non-animal sources from the HA solution! In addition, the glue they use to hold the HA molecules together could also cause unwanted allergic reactions in patients.

The most common side effects from HA fillers may include temporary erythema, tenderness, firmness, swelling, bruising, bumps, and discoloration. Occasionally, subjects have to be put on corticosteroids to treat the inflammatory symptoms. In rare cases, researchers have reported that HA lip fillers produced tumor-like nodules in subjects without any sign of inflammation or foreign body reaction at the site of injections- remember, your body makes HA so it should not see HA as a foreign substance. Overall, hyaluronic acid fillers are quite safe.

 The Results: The results are subtle. On average, the look lasts for 3 to 6 months. It costs $550/syringe. You may need 2 syringes to see visible enhancement. (If you like extreme results, visit


 Advantages: It requires no skin testing. HA fillers are preferred over collagen lip injections (from bovine). HA fillers have fewer allergic side effects and they last longer than the average collagen lip injections (3 months).

 Types of Hyaluronic Acid Lip Fillers


There are many forms of hyaluronic acid lip fillers on the market. Different brands provide different percentage of concentration of HA, percentage of cross-linked (glue) HA, and the gel hardness of the solution. For example, you may need a harder HA gel for reducing deeper lines such as nasolabial folds treatment and a softer gel for your lips! Your surgeon will decide which filler/s or mixture is best for your needs.

Tips: HA is found richly in cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and bones. The best way to get HA into your diet is to have bone broth soups on a regular basis. Eating HA may stimulate the body to produce more HA. About 5 grams of HA are degraded each day and 5 grams of new HA are made! Give the body the material it needs to make plenty of HA for you.
