More Information

This section details some of our most frequency asked questions about the treatment. It also includes information about what you should some pre & post treatment advice. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

How do they work?

Lip fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid (HA) that are placed into the lips. The injections of filler are strategically placed to enhance the volume and definition of the lips, creating a perfect pout. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and has a natural affinity with skin tissue. Following treatment, the hyaluronic acid breaks down naturally over time. Lip filler treatments are also reversible.

The results are tailored to suit the client, using more or less filler as appropriate to create a look that can range from subtle to the more dramatic.

How long does it last?

Results can last up to 4-6 months after treatment. As with all dermal filler treatments, filler lasts longer when built up gradually over time with repeated treatments. Each client is different – lifestyle factors can play a role in how the filler is metabolised between different individuals.

Note: hot climates, sunbeds, smoking and fast metabolism speed up the breakdown of filler.

Does it hurt?

We use prescription-strength numbing cream during the procedure to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. There is also a numbing agent in the fillers that we use which also helps.

What brand of filler do you use?

We only use hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers. They are non-permanent and completely reversible if needed. We stock a wide range of dermal filler brands. Get in touch if there’s a particular brand you prefer.

We believe over 90% of the cosmetic result depends on the skill and artistic flare of the medical practitioner holding the filler in their hand rather than the brand of filler being used.

  • Is hypersensitive to ingredients including hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, amide-type local anaesthetics and strep type-A gram-positive bacterial proteins
