As thinning lips become a common reality as we get older, the safe and effective anti-ageing treatment of lip enhancement has become increasingly popular. The best way to give lips a fuller, plumper appearance – and hence a more attractive, youthful appearance – is to restore lost volume and moisture with lip fillers that contain the body’s own natural material, hyaluronic acid. Lip fillers are the most common form of treatment to subtly smooth fine lines around the mouth.

Lip Fillers FAQ
Lip filler is a dermal filler treatment in the lips. It can add volume to thin lips, correct uneven lip shape, smooth out smoker’s lines and we have also treated scars on the lips with dermal fillers.
Lip fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a substance that naturally occurs in the dermis of the skin. It can be found in many beauty products, as it is a hydrophilic molecule, meaning that it attracts water. It can hold up to 1000 x its own weight in water making it an excellent hydrator. Some common brands of lip fillers are Restylane, Juvederm, Beloterol, Teosayal, Emervel now rebranded with Restylane, Perfectha etc. We do not use permanent lip fillers at the London Body centre.
Lip fillers are a cosmetic treatment, and like all medical procedures, there is always a chance that something could go wrong. However, if performed by experienced and qualified practitioners, it is a safe procedure.
The legislation in the UK for those offering injectable treatments is practically non-existent. You can go to a plastic surgeon, a dermatologist, a cosmetic doctor, a dentist, a nurse, and even a chiropodist or a beautician or indeed anyone who advertises the treatment! Non-medical practitioners definitely will not be able to look after you or prescribe if anything unexpected happens. What’s more, qualified experienced practitioners will be able to use an enzyme to dissolve the filler should that be advised.
At London Body Centre cosmetic doctors and aesthetic nurses have been providing lip filler treatments for many years, are all qualified and very experienced with dermal filler treatments.
All injectable aesthetic procedures should be performed in a clinical setting with aseptic techniques. We do not believe hair dressing salons or gyms or someone’s home offer this clinical standard.
It might be difficult to believe from the horror stories out there, but lip filler treatment is not that painful. Of course, the discomfort level will mostly depend on your doctor’s technique and your own pain tolerance.
At London Body Centre, we can apply a strong numbing cream that acts quickly or in some cases, a dental block can be offered.
The lip filler even has a dose of the painkiller lidocaine mixed in the gel, which will further help to numb the area.
The treatment itself involves injections using very fine needles to introduce the filler into the lips or lipstick lines. Therefore some pin-point bleeding is to be expected. This stops very quickly.
At London Body Centre, you will have a thorough consultation with the doctor or nurse first to review your medical history and assess your suitability for the lip filler treatment. We listen to your concerns and what you are looking to achieve from the treatment. We will then discuss treatment options and agree a treatment plan with you.
The lip filler treatment itself involves application of a cream or dental block to numb the lips, so that the treatment is comfortable.
A tiny needle is placed into the lips or lipstick lines to give the desired results. Some gentle moulding is done as part of the treatment. The process usually takes around 20mins. There is usually some swelling after the treatment; this can be reduced with the application of an ice pack. We may ask you to do this for a few minutes after the treatment.
Initially, there is some swelling and the lips may feel bigger than you would like. However, please bear in mind that the swelling will soon go down to reveal the final result. This usually takes a week to 2 weeks but can take longer. We may advise you to apply arnica cream to reduce bruising but it also helps to hydrate the lips as the swelling settles. Occasionally, you may be able to feel the lip filler, in which case gentle massage may be helpful. We are always here to support you after the treatment so anything you are concerned about, you can always return for review. We have seen many cases of lip filler treatments, which have been done at other places that have resulted in visible bead like lumps in the lips. This is not normal and is due to poor technique! The filler should not end up as lumpy nodules in the lips. It should be integrated softly into the lips. Similarly for the smoker’s lines, the filler should give a reduction in the lines without producing speed bumps above the lips!
This varies depending on the product used, the amount of lip filler used and the injector’s technique. There is always some degree of swelling which naturally resolves over a week or two. Application of ice post treatment helps to reduce swelling.
Lip fillers at London Body centre is only carried out by qualified but even more importantly very experienced doctors and nurses who have been providing this treatment for many years. Your lips should be fuller and smoother without the appearance of lumps inside the lips or above the lips.
The HA lip filler gel will last at least 6 months according to the manufacturer’s literature. However in reality, we have found that lip filler treatments have lasted much longer, in some cases well over 12 months at London Body Centre Please remember when the initial swelling goes down, you may mistake that for the filler not lasting. In these cases, if you prefer the fuller look, another treatment session will help to achieve that.
