Women receiving lip filler injections

FAQs about Lip Injections

Full, beautifully shaped lips are highly desired by our clients. To help those considering lip filler treatment, here’s what people most commonly ask about this transformative treatment.

What issues do lip injections address?

As we age, our lips can lose definition. Their borders can become undefined, the cupid’s bow can lose shape, volume can be diminished, and symmetry can be lost. Lip injections are a solution for each of these problems, giving clients the full, shapely lips they desire.

What does lip filler treatment involve?

First of all, a consultation with an expert clinician, during which you’ll decide on how best to augment your lips. When you’re comfortable to go ahead, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to numb the lip area, and the fillers injected and carefully massaged into your lips.

What is in a lip filler injection?

Lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body and is commonly found in popular facial creams and moisturisers. Hyaluronic acid fillers work by retaining moisture in the skin.

How safe are lip injections?

In the hands of an aesthetic professional, such as the expert staff at our Harley Street clinic, lip fillers are extremely safe. Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, allergic reactions are exceedingly rare.

Are there any side effects to having lip fillers?

There might be some minor swelling, redness, or bruising but this will pass in the days following the treatment.

Are lip-fillers permanent?

Like many cosmetic treatments, lip fillers are not permanent, dissolving naturally in the body, but they can be effective from 6 to 18 months.

Do lip filler injections hurt?

For the vast majority of people, discomfort is negligible, because the lips are anaesthetised twice over – once in the application of topical numbing cream, and again by the dermal filler itself, which contains an anaesthetic to reduce pain.

Can I reverse the procedure if I want to?

In the rare cases where people are unhappy with the results, lip filler injections can be simply and quickly dissolved.

Are lip injections worth it?

There’s a reason why lip fillers are so popular! For a relatively small sum, this minimally invasive treatment can enhance natural beauty and balance facial symmetry. Our clients tell us often of the boost lip fillers give to their self-confidence.
