One of the most attractive features of the face are the lips, as fuller and well-defined lips can be associated with youthfulness and beauty. Lip filler treatment UK, also known as lip augmentation, is a non-surgical procedure suitable for anyone who would like to add volume and definition, as well as correct the proportion and symmetry of the lips. Over time, our lips go through natural skin changes, with gradual loss in the volume, texture and shape of the lips.
Dermal fillers specially designed for the lips, come in a variety of densities, all made of hyaluronic acid, and whether you want a subtle natural looking lips or a fuller plumped result, the most suitable dermal filler will be used to create that perfect desired look.
We start every treatment with a thorough consultation to understand what you are trying to achieve along with the application of numbing cream to ease any pain ensuring a more comfortable and pain free experience. Only when the numbing cream has kicked in do we start with the treatment.
The dermal filler used in the treatment is made of hyaluronic acid, a molecule that naturally exists in the human body, making it safe to use on the lips and face. The results are instant and last approximately 6 months, whereby the filler gets broken down gradually by the body, allowing it to go back to its original shape.
This varies from person to person as it all depends on the individuals age, metabolic rate and other lifestyle factors.
Treatment is performed through injections of hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Dermal fillers are clear gels made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a sugar molecule that is naturally occurring in our body. More than 50% of our own HA is found in our skin. When injected, our body identifies the HA making it less likely for the body to reject the filler or develop an allergic reaction to it.
As the name suggests, dermal fillers fill the targeted areas. It works by attracting and binding to water molecules in the skin, providing:
⁃ Collagen and elastin simulation
When it comes to the Lip Filler Treatment, we aim to achieve:
⁃ Volume and hydration
⁃ Definition and shape
⁃ Balance and proportion
During the consultation, we will assess and discuss the treatment together. This is to create a treatment plan, tailored to your suitability and needs

Numbing cream is applied to the area to be injected and only when it is numbed, the treatment is done, making your experience as comforting as possible. Based on all our previous patients, the pain was mild and some patients felt no pain at all.
Slight tenderness, redness and swelling are to be expected right after the treatment, and sometimes mild bruising. However, our practitioner will talk you through everything during the consultation on the day.
No recovery time needed. You can get straight back to your daily routine, without taking time off work.
You will see instant results, with final results taking 2 weeks to allow any swelling and bruising to settle and for the lips to completely heal. Redness at the injected site is normal and expected as with all injectable related treatments.
More on what to expect during and after the treatment will be thoroughly explained during the consultation before the treatment begins
Yes. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are derived naturally and not animal based. It is known as one of nature’s most versatile and is made with extensive research in the laboratory.
Over time the fillers get dissolved naturally in the skin as the body is able to break the filler down and results of the treatment gradually fade. The filler breaks down and is re-absorbed by the body, just like the natural occurring hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid has gained a reputation for being safe, effective and a good alternative to surgery.
Patients feel more confident after the treatment since they will see immediate and natural-looking results. Patients will notice a change in their appearance thereafter.
One of the best things about this treatment is that it is not a permanent solution, making it excellent for people who want to experiment with the new look without committing to surgery or entirely changing their face. The lips can be tweaked as your face changes over time to keep the result. As the face evolves over time, tweaks can be made to keep the result consistent.
The treatment's longevity is determined by a number of factors, including the patient's metabolic rate, lifestyle factors, and health.
