Lip Fillers FAQ

Lip fillers can be used to add volume to lips that are wrinkled or thin. Furthermore, they are effective for those who want to reduce the signs of ageing, without having to undergo expensive, painful and complicated plastic surgery.

Some Lip fillers are made from a clear gel, with the various types distinguished by thickness and viscosity. Such factors generally determine the length of time that they last. Thus, you should ask your practitioner for further information on their expected life span.

Lip fillers are injected into the tissue beneath the skin. They then work to expand the neurofibres and tighten the skin. This acts to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. They also add volume to the lips.

Most Lip fillers contain quantities of a local anaesthetic which reduce injection pain. It also numbs the skin where it is injected. For this reason, we can undertake the filling of particularly sensitive areas such as the lips with minimal patient discomfort. Sometimes, there can be momentary pain followed by redness at the injection site but this quickly rectifies itself.

The results of treatment are instant and can last for between nine and twelve months. You can read more about how long lip fillers last here.
