With the rise of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including dermal fillers, more and more people are opting for facial treatments that enhance or shape their features. Amongst the most popular treatments we offer are lip fillers, which plump your lips, correct uneven shapes and smooth out lines.

Despite the popularity of this procedure, it’s natural to have some questions about it. While a consultation with your doctor can tell you everything you need to know, we understand that you may want to learn as much as you can before considering it.

So, you can find a list of frequently asked questions about lip fillers below:

What Are Lip Fillers?

In essence, they are a treatment that makes your lips fuller by adding volume to them. Because everyone is different, we tailor our treatments to individual requirements and facial proportions. We offer a wide range of light Hyaluronic Acid-based fillers, a substance that occurs naturally in the dermis.

How do they Work?

Our fillers hydrate and revitalise the lip area, so they don’t just bulk them out. This is because Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water – making it a fantastic hydrator. HA is also produced by your body, so the lip fillers are easily accepted once injected and broken down naturally over several months.

What Visible Effects Can They Offer?

As you age, your lips will become thinner as they lose volume – a process that usually starts occurring from your late twenties! Some people are also born with thinner lips, something they may not consider attractive and seek to change; introducing small quantities of HA filler can enhance the appearance of the lips, mainly by changing its shape and size. We can also create a more pronounced cupid’s bow if you wish.

Will I Have a Natural Look?

Yes. We are firm believers of using only the highest quality and the most advanced range of products, which includes our dermal fillers. This ensures natural-looking results that include reshaped lips and subtle volume where needed. Our products also offer great elasticity, so the fillers move with your facial expressions for a natural, soft look.

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

The exact duration will vary from person to person since everyone is different. However, you can expect a duration of 6 to 12 months.

You will be able to see immediate results, as our lip filler treatments provide an instant effect – however, you will see even better results as the HA settles and integrates with your facial tissue. You can also amend the look and alter it over time, as HA fillers are not permanent.

Which Dermal Fillers are the Best for You?

We have many years of experience in the aesthetic medicine field, so we believe that the best fillers for lip enhancement are Restylane and the Juvéderm Vycross range. They offer soft and elegant results that give your lips the shape you are looking for.

Can You Undergo This Procedure?

Most people are suitable candidates for the lip filler treatment, but you will be able to discuss your medical history during an initial consultation. This will help our professional team to advise on the best treatment for you.

Do Lip Filler Treatments Hurt?

Our advanced range of dermal fillers; Juvéderm Volbella is a light smooth gel that contains lidocaine, so the treated area will be numbed, leading to a more comfortable procedure.

This area will swell up a little, however, and you may see some bruising (which should go away after a few days). Due to this, you may want to schedule your procedure ahead of time if you’re looking to undergo it for a special occasion, as there may be some downtime.

How Much Does It Cost?

Our lip filler treatments start at £295.
