Lip Enhancements

What happens during a lip filler treatment?

Your lips will be ‘numbed’ with a special anaesthetic cream. Specially selected premium dermal filler will be placed into areas needing volume or correction. Lips are gently massaged immediately after to mould the product so that you obtain a smooth, natural result.


Is there any downtime following a lip filler treatment?

There may be mild swelling and bruising in the days after your dermal filler lip treatment. Therefore, you may wish to select carefully, the dates that you have the procedure, so that they don’t coincide with special events or holidays.


When will I see the results of my lip filler treatment?

Results can be seen immediately, but you will need to allow 2 weeks for any swelling to subside and for the product to integrate fully with your skin tissues, and soften.


How long will the results from my lip filler treatment last?

Results can last from 9 to 12 months, depending on the product used and your individual response to the filler. If you sunbathe excessively, exercise to extremes, smoke and do not drink enough water, you may need to return to the clinic for another treatment sooner than the full 9 months.


How many lip filler treatments will I need?

This depends on the level of change you want to achieve. If you only want a subtle enhancement, one treatment may be enough. For a more dramatic change or increase in the volume of your lips, you may need more than one session.


What shouldn’t I do after my treatment?

No makeup, touching lip for 24 hours.
No massaging for 2 weeks after the treatment.
No exercise for 3 days after the treatment.


What is the risk my filler will migrate?

With any dermal filler treatment there is a risk the filler can migrate (move away from the intended site). Sometimes filler may move above the border of the lip and create a ledge. However, there are ways to minimise this risk by using appropriate dermal fillers and techniques, although no one can promise zero risk of migration. If the filler moves it’s very easy to dissolve it and this will maintain a natural result.


Are lip fillers safe?

Dermal fillers are generally considered safe when administered by a qualified and experienced professional. However, there are risks associated with any medical procedure. Common side effects may include bruising, redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site. Serious complications are rare but can occur if the filler is injected incorrectly or if there is an allergic reaction.


Can anyone have lip fillers?

You cannot have lip augmentation in the following circumstances:


Pregnancy/ breastfeeding

Active infection (particularly cold sores)

Allergy to Lidocaine / bees / wasps

Unstable autoimmune disease

Under 18 yrs old
