Once you have been approved for treatment your cosmetic doctor will numb the area ahead of administering the lip fillers. The doctor will decide which areas of the lip the filler will be administered and how much product is required. A fine needle is used to deliver the dermal fillers. The injections take around 10-20 minutes depending on your treatment plan and you are able to return to work and home life immediately.

You need to book a consultation before lip enahcnement treatments or any of our other uses for fillers, such as chin reshaping.

Thanks to the numbing cream used patients shouldn’t feel pain, although there may be some stinging when this subsides. Side effects are minimal, making lip contouring treatments popular.

We also offer lip filler conservatively, so we may offer top up treatments to increase lip volume if needed at another appointment. We usually only need to see a patient once to perform a lip enhancement treatment with fillers. You will need follow up treatments in 12-18 months to maintain the results of your lip augmentation.
