Lip Filler

Lip fillers are one of the most popular types of dermal fillers for increasing the volume of your lips. Fuller, more plump lips have become one of the most popular treatments in medical aesthetics. Lip filler injections are a semi-permanent solution that helps to enhance lips that have lost their shape, volume or elasticity.
Filler can be used in lip augmentation to help.
  • Perfect your shape, smile, and correct asymmetries.
  • Smoothing wrinkles when you smile, laugh, or fill wrinkles that develop on the sides of your mouth or from smoker’s lines.
  • Restoring a previous lip size, as lips can thin with ageing.
Whether you want less gum, a fuller upper lip or an overall enhancement, we can help boost your confidence and self-esteem.

What to Expect

Lip injections take around 20-30 minutes total. About 10-15 minutes before the treatment takes place, a prescription anaesthetic cream is applied to the injection sites to numb the area before your filler treatment.
Lip filler is injected at precise locations and the skin is massaged to smooth the material into the lips.  Lip fillers give an instant effect with results improving as the product settles.
The volume of filler injected depends on each patient’s desired results with amounts starting at 0.5mL, 0.7mL, and up to 1mL. If you would like fuller lips or to achieve a more youthful look by smoothing out wrinkles around your mouth, Lip fillers are the ideal way to restore or add volume and plumpness.

Are You Suitable for Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are suitable for most people apart from those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Lip Injections

Lip injections contain Hyaluronic Acid, a natural hydration substance that the body produces. The material plumps up the skin fills wrinkles and adds volume and definition.
This substance is broken down over time and reabsorbed into the body resulting in a non-permanent cosmetic effect. Book Lip Fillers if you want fuller, sensuous lips that will make you feel more confident. We offer lip filler using dermal fillers that give soft elegant results.

Side Effects

If you suffer from cold sores, make sure that you have an oral prescription prior to your lip filler treatment as it may provoke an outbreak. Common injection related effects may include:
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Itching
  • Discolouration
  • Tenderness
These symptoms should resolve in 2-7 days.


Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or Advil for two days after lip filler treatment; also, avoid them for one week before treatment
Do not use ice on swollen areas after treatment
Avoid exercise, except for walking, for 24 hours after treatment.

Lip Filler Info You Should Know

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid, a natural hydration substance that the body produces. The material plumps up the skin, fills wrinkles and adds volume and definition. This substance is broken down over time and reabsorbed into the body resulting in a non-permanent cosmetic effect, but one that can be repeated.

Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Lip fillers are generally safe when administered by a qualified professional using approved materials. Complications can occur but are rare. Hyaluronic acid fillers, the most common type, are usually well-tolerated as they’re made from substances similar to those found in the body. It’s crucial to discuss potential risks and individual health factors with a healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

Lip fillers work by adding volume to the injection sites. The volume of injected material is directly related to the effect produced. These effects are visible immediately so it is easy to tailor your treatment to achieve the exact look that you desire. The Hyaluronic Acid attracts and binds water molecules within your skin, producing a fresher, more hydrated look.

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Lip fillers, commonly made from hyaluronic acid, are designed to enhance lip volume and shape, typically lasting between 6 to 12 months. The duration is influenced by individual factors such as metabolism, where a faster rate can lead to quicker absorption of the filler.
Lifestyle choices, including smoking and sun exposure, may also reduce the longevity of the fillers by breaking down skin collagen and elastin more rapidly.
The skill and technique of the practitioner are crucial for ensuring the fillers last as long as possible. Adhering to aftercare instructions can also play a significant role in maintaining the effects. Most people consider top-up treatments around the 6-month mark to maintain their desired appearance, as the fillers naturally start to diminish at this point.
It’s essential to follow post-treatment advice, like avoiding significant heat or cold and intense physical activity, to maximise the lifespan of lip fillers.

Lip Filler FAQ's

Lip fillers work by injecting a gel-like substance made of a hyaluronic acid base into the lips to add volume, shape, and definition. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, and it is particularly abundant in the skin, connective tissues, and eyes.

When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules, creating a plumping effect. This can help to increase the size of the lips, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and improve the overall contour and shape of the lips.

The effects of hyaluronic acid lip fillers are not permanent and typically last between 6 to 18 months. Over time, the hyaluronic acid is gradually absorbed by the body, and the lips will return to their original size and shape.

The duration of lip fillers can vary depending on the type of filler used, an individual metabolism, and the injection technique. However, on average, hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers typically last between 6 to 18 months.

After the initial injection, the filler gradually breaks down and is absorbed by the body. As the filler dissolves, the lips will gradually return to their original size and shape. Some people may find that the duration of their lip fillers is shorter or longer than this average timeframe, based on factors such as their individual metabolism and the amount of filler injected.

It is important to note that the longevity of lip fillers can also be affected by lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption. These factors can cause the filler to break down more quickly, resulting in a shorter duration of results.

The cost of lip fillers can vary depending on several factors, including the type of filler used and the amount of filler required. The amount can vary from 0.5mL, 0.7mL and upwards of 1mL of Lip Filler depending on the patient’s desired results. Check out our price-list to find out more on the cost of our treatments.

The healing time for lip fillers varies per person. In general, most people will experience some swelling, redness, and tenderness in the lips immediately after the injection, which may last for several days.

Typically, the initial swelling and bruising will start to subside within 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. However, it may take up to 2 weeks for the lips to fully heal and for the final results to be visible.

Swelling is a common side effect of lip fillers, and it can take a few days to subside. However, there are several things you can do to help reduce swelling and discomfort after the procedure:

  1. Apply ice: Applying ice to the treated area can help to reduce swelling and numb any discomfort. Use a cold pack or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel and apply it to the lips for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.

  2. Avoid heat: Avoid exposure to heat, direct sunlight or sunbeds for at least 24 hours after the procedure, as this can worsen swelling.

  3. Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help to flush out any excess fluids in the body and reduce swelling.

  4. Elevate your head: Sleeping with your head elevated on pillows can help to reduce swelling by promoting blood circulation.

  5. Avoid alcohol and salty foods: Alcohol and salty foods can dehydrate the body and worsen swelling. It is best to avoid these for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

It is not recommended to smoke after lip filler for at least 24 hours, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and slow down the healing process.

Smoking can cause vasoconstriction, which is the narrowing of blood vessels, leading to decreased blood flow and oxygen supply to the treated area. This can increase the risk of infection, delayed healing, and poor results.

Additionally, smoking can also cause dehydration, which can worsen swelling and discomfort after the procedure. It is best to avoid smoking for at least 24 hours after the procedure to allow the body to heal properly and reduce the risk of complications.

Yes, you can eat after lip filler injections, but it’s advisable to avoid extremely hot or spicy foods and to use gentle mouth movements initially.
There can be some discomfort during the injections into the lip, but most patients find it manageable. Topical numbing agents or fillers with built-in anaesthetics can reduce pain.
