HA Gel

You might be wondering what HA gel is and why it’s used in these injections instead of other substances like silicone or collagen. HA is naturally found in our bodies so when injected it isn’t considered foreign material by our immune system. It also absorbs water which helps give our skin hydration leading to plumper looking appearances as seen with places like cheeks and smile lines.


The procedure usually takes around 10-15 minutes depending on the amount you want injected though this may vary from one injectable type/brand to another.

Our specialists take time discussing desired sizes even showing examples/templates which will ensure a nice outcome after filler placement here at Lips ‘n’ Dreams Clinics!
