Lip Filler Injections: A Comprehensive Guide
Lip fillers can be a quick and easy way to achieve increased volume and a perfect pout without going through a more invasive lip augmentation procedure.
This type of non surgical cosmetic treatment involves injecting fillers into the lips, which can help to add volume, definition, and shape while reducing wrinkles around the mouth and marionette lines.
Here is a comprehensive guide on Dermal Fillers for lips to answer all your questions.
To begin with, it’s important to understand what lip fillers are exactly.
Lip Fillers are made up of natural or synthetic materials that are injected directly into the skin in order to add extra volume and contour.
The most common types of lip fillers for cosmetic treatments are hyaluronic acid based injectables such as Vivacy Stylage.
These products hold water molecules in the skin and create a cushioning effect that adds fullness and shape to your lips.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that we gradually lose as we age.
The next step is deciding if lip fillers are right for you during your free consultation.
This type of treatment is ideal for people looking for subtle changes in their appearance; however, certain factors may make you an unsuitable candidate for this procedure.
For example, if you have an underlying health condition such as diabetes, auto immune diseases or blood clotting disorders, then you should speak with a medical professional before pursuing any type of lip enhancement treatment.
Additionally, it’s important to be aware that there are potential risks associated with dermal filler treatment, including swelling, bruising and infection post treatment—so make sure to discuss these risks with your fully qualified doctor before proceeding with treatment.
When seeking out a provider for lip filler injections, always research their qualifications and experience first!
Make sure they have received training specific to this type of procedure and know how to administer cosmetic injectables safely and effectively.
You should also look at patient reviews on Google so that you can get an idea of their skill level and overall satisfaction level when performing this procedure.
Once you receive your lip filler injections, there will likely be some minor swelling and redness post treatment; however , these symptoms should subside after several days .
The full recovery time is typically 2 weeks. To ensure proper healing process , apply cold compresses intermittently throughout the day for 20 minutes each session . We always aim to achieve a natural look.
Also avoid sleeping on those areas after injections and avoid long sessions near heat sources (steam rooms/saunas) Proper hygiene is also extremely important , do not wear makeup during healing process alcohol consumption in excess can cause problems related too swelling as well.

Here are our most frequently asked questions...
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
Lip fillers are popular, non-surgical injectable treatments that can be used to add volume and definition to the lips. The treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid filler into the lips in order to plump them up and enhance their shape. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, and is able to attract and retain moisture – so it not only adds fullness, but also helps keep the skin hydrated. It also has a strong safety record; many of today’s dermal fillers are made with non-permanent ingredients which break down over time, allowing for natural lip contours to return as the filler dissipates.
Does lip augmentation hurt?
It’s natural to feel some apprehension before undergoing any type of medical treatment, especially one that involves needles! Fortunately, lip enhancement is relatively painless and can be done with minimal discomfort. The degree of discomfort when getting dermal filler treatments depends on a few factors, such as the type and amount of product being injected, as well as what areas are being treated. To further reduce any potential discomfort during lip augmentations, certain topical numbing agents can be applied prior to treatment. The duration of numbing effect varies depending on how much is used; however, in most cases it typically wears off after 15-30 minutes.
What Happens at My Lip Augmentation Consultation?
At Hampstead Aesthetics, we offer a free consultation which are designed to help determine the ideal treatment plan for each individual patient. During your appointment, Dr Chike will discuss your desired goals and evaluate your facial features in order to develop a personalized approach that meets all of your needs. First, you’ll be asked questions about any medications or supplements you might be currently taking, as well as any known allergies or past reactions you may have experienced when using various beauty products. Next, a series of photographs may be taken of your face and lips in order to capture the areas being treated both before and after the injection process. This helps us get an exact idea of which muscles need to be worked on in order to achieve optimal results. Dr Chike will determine how to treat the lips and surrounding mouth area, to ensure your lips stay looking great. Dr Chike will then discuss with you how many ml of dermal filler may need to be injected in each area in order to deliver the desired look. Once everything has been discussed thoroughly - and assuming there aren’t any contraindications - treatment can begin and numbing cream will be applied. Other treatments and treatment options may also be discussed during your initial consultation.
What is the General Aftercare for Lip Filler Treatment?
Lip filler treatments require some degree of aftercare in order to maintain optimal results. It is important to keep the area clean and dry at all times. For 24 hours try to avoid any activities that might put too much stress on your lips such as exercise, sunbeds and saunas. Although most patients don’t experience any problems - if you start feeling any sudden pain or tenderness, make sure to contact your doctor immediately.
Are Lip Fillers safe?
Lip filler treatments are considered safe when administered by a qualified medical professional using the highest quality products. At Hampstead Aesthetics, we only use dermal fillers that have been specifically designed for cosmetic use; they contain hyaluronic acid and are biodegradable, meaning they will be absorbed by the body eventually over time. The injection process is safe and relatively painless due to the numbing cream used before treatment takes place. However, risks such as swelling and bruising may still occur; our doctors do their best to minimize these risks by taking into account each patient’s unique facial features, medical history, desired results and any allergies or other physical reactions they might have.
Will 0.5ml of Dermal Fillers Make a Difference?
Yes, 0.5ml of lip filler can make a difference in the appearance of your lips. However, it’s important to note that everyone is different and the amount of product needed for an effect may vary from person to person. Dr Chike takes into account each individual’s unique needs before administering any aesthetic treatments; this helps ensure that you get the best possible outcome with minimal risk and discomfort. Dr Chike will discuss all of your different treatment options prior to treatment.
How Much Does Lip Filler Cost?
Non surgical Lip fillers cost varies depending on the type and amount of product used, as well as the area of the face being treated. At Hampstead Aesthetics, we offer a range of products and non surgical services to ensure that you receive quality treatments that are customized to your individual needs. Lip filler prices start from £300 for up to 1ml and can vary significantly depending on the size and complexity of treatment; we strive to offer competitive pricing to make sure our patients can access safe, effective treatments without breaking their budget. Our team is available to discuss any questions or concerns about prices - so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for more information.
How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?
The effects of lip fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of product used and the individual's unique facial features and metabolism.
How Long Does Lip Filler Take?
The length of time required for lip filles can vary depending on the individual’s desired results and the size and complexity of treatment. Generally speaking, lip filler treatments take anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes to complete.
How Long Does Swelling Post Lip Filler Last?
Swelling is a common side effect of lip fillers and can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the individual’s healing process. Generally speaking, any swelling from lip fillers should subside after just three or four days – however, it is important to be aware that there may be some additional swelling in response to certain activities such as kissing, eating spicy foods and drinking alcohol.
