Lip Fillers.

Enhance your facial definition
with some extra help.

Lip fillers are among the fastest growing cosmetic treatments of the past decade and they’ve become pretty popular at our dental practices in Limerick, Castletroy and Roscrea too.

What are
lip fillers?

They are a cosmetic procedure that can improve the shape, volume, smoothness, and definition of your lips to increase their aesthetic sensuality. It involves the use of injectable soft tissue fillers that may contain fat, collagen, or hyaluronic acid.

Long lasting

The procedure will take less than an hour to complete. Its results can last up to a year. To maintain the volume of the lips, the treatment must be done periodically.


You’ll be glad then to know that our team provide these treatments in a completely safe and pain-free environment 7 days a week. We also offer the expertise, trust and support that such treatments require.

What are lip fillers used for?

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.

What are they made of?

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.

How do they work?

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.

Is the treatment painful?

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.

How long do they last?

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.
