About lip fillers
Restore your smile and radiate confidence with fuller, plumper lips. With natural-looking lip fillers, you can improve the appearance of your lips both in person and in photographs. Lip fillers are not permanent, so they are a great option if you want to experiment with having fuller lips and perfecting your pout.
Lip fillers can plump up your lips, add volume and, more importantly, boost your confidence. The lip filler can alter the appearance of your lips, giving them a fuller look and a more natural-looking pout.

What are Lip Fillers?
Dermal lip fillers are made from purified hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body. The hyaluronic acid is used to add volume to your lips, giving them a fuller look and enhancing specific areas such as a thin upper lip or a downturned mouth. The real benefit of lip fillers is the ability to target specific areas for improvement. A fully-trained doctor will be able to add specially calculated volume to precise areas, giving the appearance of fuller lips in exactly the way you desire.
How do lip fillers work?
Lip fillers work by injecting a ‘filler product’ called hyaluronic acid into the lips. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the skin and attracts water to a specific area giving the lips a fuller look. Lip fillers can be used to correct a downturned mouth, enhance a cupid’s bow or to add more overall volume to the lips.
How long do lip fillers take to work?
You will see visible results immediately after you have had lip filler injections.
How long do lip fillers last?
Lip fillers generally last between 6-12 months, but they can last as long as 18 months depending on how your body reacts.
Are lip fillers safe?
Done correctly, lip fillers are safe. However, you should only ever receive treatment from an experienced and fully qualified doctor or nurse. There are many beauty practitioners who have only completed short courses and are not sufficiently trained, so it is essential to ask about your practitioner’s qualifications.
Which fillers do you use?
We only use the market-leading brand, Juvederm.
Dermal fillers can be risky, especially if they’re not done properly. There are plenty of beauty therapists performing filler treatments at the moment and the truth is, they’re not properly qualified and have likely only taken a 1-day training course. If filler treatment is not done correctly, risks can include blindness, infection and the need for surgery if not injected into the correct area.
