Lip Fillers

lip fillers
What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers are a non-surgical solution that adds volume, definition and support to the lips. It is a natural sugar-based hyaluronic acid gel, which is injected into the lip area to boost hydration and elasticity. Lip fillers provide immediate visible improvements to the lips by filling in wrinkles and vertical lip lines and improving lip symmetry.

What are lip fillers made of?

Lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a clear gel-like substance that is found naturally in our bodies. It is a sugar-based molecule that is well known for its moisturising and hydrating properties. When injected into the lips, it can help to add volume and give them a more youthful appearance.

What to expect?

It is always advisable to use the most highly trained and skilled medical practitioners for the most effective results. Nurse Becky is renowned for her gentle touch and natural looking results. 

A face-to-face consultation will be carried out in the clinic, where we will run through what the procedure entails, discuss the results you are looking for and answer any questions you may have. You can feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.

Is it safe?

Lip filler injections are  safe when performed by an experienced injector. Side effects are generally very mild and can include:

  • Swelling and bruising lasting up to two weeks

  • Bleeding at the injection site

  • Pain

For the best results, always follow our aftercare advice.

How long is the recovery period?

The whole process takes minutes and ice can be applied afterwards to reduce any swelling.

You should notice results right away, with optimum results seen 5-7 days after treatment once any potential light swelling has ceased.

The lip filler treatment does not require much downtime. You may wish to take the rest of the day off work so you can assess how much swelling there will be. If you’re concerned about swelling after lip fillers, consider getting the treatment done on a Friday, so you will be back to normal by Monday morning. Most people can resume their normal activities the next day.

See our aftercare advice at the bottom of this page for more information on how to care for yourself after the procedure.

Will it hurt?

Many patients are under the impression that lip filler procedures hurt. Those patients will be surprised and happy to hear that lip filler procedures are very rarely painful. In fact, most patients need only the use of a numbing cream during the procedure.

As well as picking the right person to undertake your treatment, you can help things along by:

  • Not drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours before treatment

  • Not taking any anti inflammatory medicines

  • Not taking fish oils or garlic supplements as these can thin your blood

  • Avoid booking your appointment in the week before your period, as sensitivity is heightened at this time
