DO LIP FILLERS HURT?

The lip enhancement products we use include the local anaesthetic lidocaine or a topical anaesthetic cream for a more comfortable treatment experience, making the whole procedure more tolerable.

IS ANY PRE-TREATMENT CARE NECESSARY?

No pre-treatment care is needed but you may choose to take arnica tablets for 7 days beforehand in order to reduce any bruising. It is also advisable to avoid taking any fish oil supplements or asprin around the time of your treatment, as this can increase the possibility of bruising.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Frequently asked questions

Dermal filler is injected into the lips to define the lip borders and/or create a fuller, plumped-out effect. We can inject as much or as little filler as the patient requires to give a subtle or more dramatic result. Lip filler is a naturally occurring hyaluronic acid gel.
Your practitioner will inject small quantities of filler into the border of the lips or body of the lip depending on the desired effect. The process can be uncomfortable and topical local anaesthetic will be applied to reduce any pain experienced. It should take approximately 30 minutes and the effects are instant.
You can carry on with your day as normal, although we advise that you avoid strenuous activity/saunas/other facial treatments for up to 24 hours. You will have swelling and possible bruising so please plan your treatment times/dates accordingly.
Lip borders can be defined and the shape and size of the lips can be enhanced either subtly or dramatically depending on the result the client desires. This treatment is also ideal for reducing lines and creases around the mouth area (including ‘smoker’s lines’). Results last approximately 9 months.
Swelling and redness are common side effects, but such complaints are temporary and should subside within 24/48 hrs. If a lip-enhancing treatment is administered by anyone other than an experienced practitioner, it can create uneven results and an unsightly appearance. SkinIQ clinics employ only fully-trained, experienced practitioners, and the filling gels we use in these procedures are gentle, natural and harmless.
Lip fillers are not suitable for anyone with severe allergies. You should not consider dermal fillers of any kind if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
