Lip filler is one of our most popular injectable treatments giving you instant volume and improved definition along with the softening of lines around your upper and lower lips. The clinic is home to some of the best Doctor and Nurse lip filler injectors in the industry boasting a combined experience of over 50 years. Specifically trained in the specialist area of dermal fillers for lips, they are committed to working with you to fully understand what you want to achieve from the treatment and then giving you the long lasting natural results you deserve.
How does it work?
Our injectors can select from some of the best lip filler products in the industry including Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Smile, both products are designed exclusively for lips and are composed of the natural substance Hyaluronic Acid. Compared to collagen based filler, this substance has benefits in causing less swelling and producing a more natural look due to its natural properties in skin hydration.
What results can I expect?
Results are instant so as soon as you have the treatment you will get the opportunity to discuss your initial results with your Doctor or Nurse injector. The high quality filler products we use can last up to twelve months but we usually advise you to expect results to last six. The way the lips look after treatment will vary according to what you want to achieve but can include...
- More definition to the lips including a pronounced cupids bow.
- Plumper lips where volume is a concern.
- Softer more hydrated appearance.
- Softening of vertical lines and wrinkles around the upper and lower lip.
- Improve shape or symmetry where this is a concern.
- Reduction in marionette lines - depending on what is set out in your treatment plan.
What is the recovery period like?
Lip filler is a non surgical treatment and healing time at the site of the injection is usually in just 24hrs. You may experience some slight tenderness, swelling and bruising for up to one week after treatment but you will be supported through the aftercare process with our injectors who will give you advice on how to minimise the recovery time and extend results.
Will I need a consultation
Every new client coming to the clinic for lip filler is required to have a consultation with the Doctor or nurse injector they will be receiving treatment from. This is a very important part of the process as it allows the injector to build a picture of exactly what it is you want to achieve. You can find more information about our consultations on our injector consultation page.
Before And Afters
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Lip filler treatments start from £225. The total cost of the treatment depends on the type and amount of filler used, this will be determined by your treatment plan. We have a range of finance options which can be discussed at your consultation.
How long does it take?
We advise you to allow 1 hour for treatment, this gives us 30 minutes for LMX numbing cream to take affect and 30 minutes to administer the filler.
Is the procedure painful?
We all have different tolerance levels of pain so some people experience minor discomfort while others are more sensitive however we do offer a numbing cream for all our clients before treatment to minimise the discomfort. Once this is applied you will be able to wait in our private pre treatment lounge until it has taken effect.
What filler products do you use for the lips?
We use Juvederm Smile and Juvederm Volbella which are both dedicated lip filler products and the number one most popular lip filler with Doctor and Nurse injectors. If you are used to something different you can mention this at your consultation and our Doctor and Nurse injectors will be able to discuss the different end results with you.
How long will lip filler last?
We recommend treatment intervals of 6 months although results can last longer than this depending on factors including lifestyle and aftercare.
How qualified are your injectors?
Five of our dermal filler injectors are fully qualified Doctors and we have a sixth injector who is a qualified Nurse. All six injectors receive frequent dedicated training sessions in the latest techniques in dermal filler injections including sessions dedicated to achieving natural results in lip filler.
What are the risks?
The most common risk is swelling and bruising however our injectors use techniques to keep this at a minimum and will also advise you on the correct aftercare to ensure you recover quickly. More severe complications are very rare and the potential risk is low however our Doctor led team are trained to detect the signs of complications and have the right facilities and equipment to be able to respond quickly to any medical emergencies should they arise.
Will I have a follow up?
Yes, all our clients receive a free of charge follow up consultation 4 weeks after treatment, this will be with the same Doctor or Nurse injector you were treated with. Should you have concerns about your treatment our front of house team will work with you to bring your consultation forward.
What happens if something goes wrong?
All of our Doctor and Nurse injectors are fully qualified and trained to identify complications which prevent medical emergencies from happening. Should a complication arise during or after your treatment our team are on hand and have the facilities and equipment to be able to provide you with emergency medical assistance.
Will my lips look natural after treatment?
Many of our clients come to us wanting to make small alterations to the shape and definition of their lips without making a major difference to the volume. We have dedicated a lot of resources into making sure we can achieve natural lip filler results for our clients including dedicated training sessions for our Doctor and Nurse injectors into methods to achieve natural results and fine details in lip filler and careful product selection ensuring we use filler products which are specifically designed to produce a natural look.
Why don’t you use collagen?
The filler products we use are based on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen. Hyaluronic acid contains naturally hydrating properties, these promote a faster healing time than collagen. In addition to this, results from Hyaluronic acid based fillers can be seen immediately and tend to last longer before being reabsorbed into the body.
Can filler be removed?
Yes, we provide a treatment called Hyalase, which is designed to fully dissolve filler. The treatment costs £200 and can be administered by one of our Doctor injectors.
Do I have to be over 18?
Yes, we do not treat anyone under the age of 18 for lip filler.
How much is a consultation?
You will be asked to pay a £50 deposit to secure a consultation with one of our Doctor or Nurse injectors. This deposit is fully redeemable against any of our injectable treatments.
Am I suitable for lip filler treatment?
During your consultation the Doctor or Nurse injector will ask you questions to find out exactly what it is you are looking to achieve from filler treatment both physically and emotionally, if the injector thinks a different treatment would be more effective at getting the results you want, they will discuss this with you and make their recommendations in your treatment plan. They will also ask you relevant questions about your medical history, as our fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid, there are very few health conditions which make you not suitable for treatment but a limited number of conditions such as certain types of diabetes may have an affect on your treatment plan.
