The Procedure for Lip Fillers
Aftercare For Lip Fillers
Some swelling can be expected immediately after the medical treatment. An ice pack can help with this, and the initial swelling will go down quite quickly. There may be minor soreness from the filler injections as the numbness from the topical cream wears off.
You can manage this with a painkiller like paracetamol. We advise against ibuprofen and aspirin. We recommend avoiding intense exercise for 48 hours after your treatment. Reduced activity allows the body to heal the treated areas quicker.
After 24 hours the swelling should mostly have subsided. If not, a cold compress or ice pack can be applied. Drinking plenty of water also helps. We always offer a free follow-up appointment here in Birmingham to review how everything is going, even if you already see the desired results (generally after two weeks).
Great Results & Prices!
Immediately after your lip filler treatment, you may have a small amount of bleeding and swelling. In the hours that follow, some clients will start to see bruising appearing around the needle sites. This usually fades after 2-4 days.
Following this short recovery phase, you’ll get to enjoy full, beautiful lips for anywhere between 6 and 9 months depending on your metabolism, and how regularly you’ve received filler before. The first fillers you receive are often the quickest to dissolve, as they don’t have anything to build on.
Over time, you should find you can spread the effective treatments further apart, from once every 6 months to once a year and get amazing results at a competitive cost.
Clinic Reviews For Our Lip Fillers in Birmingham
How Does The Treatment Work
Lip fillers aren’t just used to create plump (although they do this so well). They can also be skillfully applied to correct asymmetry – a popular medical plan of action for those with an uneven Cupid’s bow, one side of the mouth slightly larger than the other, or over-pronounced at the top or bottom.
They can be used either to sharpen or soften the shape of the Cupid’s bow. They can roll back the years by correcting loss of volume and downturn caused by ageing. And they can even alleviate the revelation of too much tooth and gum when smiling.
Lip filler can even be used to correct asymmetries caused by a cleft lip. Although, even when removal is achieved and corrected surgically in early life, many patients find perfect symmetry is not fully restored and the end-results disappointing.
Unevenness can easily be balanced with filler. Some cleft lips are mild enough not to be treated surgically, and filler alone can dramatically improve their appearance, with the added benefit of no scarring.
Best Medical Benefits of Lip Fillers
One of the obvious medical benefits of lip fillers is to counter thinness of the lips which have always been a universal standard of beauty. Many women find that lip filler can enhance a feeling of femininity. But there are other great results and benefits too.
Fuller enhancement can create the illusion of stronger features. They can help to balance the features, especially for those with larger upper facial features (eyes and forehead) and a smaller chin. Finally, the volume they restore can return bounce and youthfulness to the face.
The benefits of opting for lip filler over the more invasive medical process of implants is that there are little-to-no side effects. They often take less than 15 minutes to administer, bruising and swelling are usually minimal, and at a cost that is extremely affordable in comparison to permanent alterations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hyaluronate-based dermal fillers generally last between 9 and 12 months. But there are always differences between individual patients. Factors that affect the duration of lip fillers include:
- High or low metabolism
- The amount of product used
On average, patients should expect around 6 to 9 months for smaller quantities such as 0.5ml.
On the whole very safe, and the main risks involve the potential of some mild bruising and swelling. We expect some mild redness with all injectable treatments. There are also other vascular risks, which are minimised by:
- firstly, a strong knowledge of anatomy
- use of the correct technique
- taking time with each patient
- an experienced clinician performs the treatment
If you have had a history of regular cold sores, it is often recommended to take a precautionary dose of Aciclovir. This minimises the chances of the augmentation procedure causing a cold sore.

It’s a common myth, but it’s not true that fillers cause sagging. Fillers do not stretch the skin, and after they have been metabolised out of your system, your skin will return to its normal appearance.
The answer to this will depend on your individual preferences and metabolism. Usually, you won’t need to revisit us for a top-up for at least 6-8 months. Many people opt to get them once or twice a year – twice is recommended if you want to keep the volume looking fresh and full.
It is slightly different to lip fillers. Instead of hyaluronic acid-based fillers, it uses Botox to relax the muscles and ‘flip’ the flip upwards. This can expand the upper surface area, making the lips look larger and fuller.
If you decide you don’t like your lip fillers (which in our experience is extremely rare!), they can be dissolved with a solution known as hyaluronidase. This is an enzyme that occurs naturally in the body – no scary stuff. We use this removal solution in cases of those who have been to an inexpert practitioner, so we can undo the damage, and re-apply filler correctly if any client wishes.
Applying lipstick straight after lip fillers should not necessarily be a problem, but it is usually good to wait at least 24 hours. This is because you will have some very tiny open wounds where the needle penetrated the skin, so it’s best to avoid the risk of bacteria getting in.
A standard dose of 1ml (our most popular treatment) costs £349, and 2ml costs £599. For our full list of treatment prices, visit here.
‘Lip fillers’ refer to a series of points placed strategically around the lips to fill, contour, and volumise. The full-lipped look is extremely fashionable right now, but not all of us are born with it. Volume in the lips can also be lost with time and age. Lip fillers put that perk and pizzazz back in the space of just 15 minutes. Dermal fillers also provide amazing hydration and anti-ageing benefits.
Modern lip fillers almost always consist of hyaluronic acid. Far from being artificial, or a toxin like Botox (although Botox is a completely safe toxin when administered correctly), hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies. We use FDA-approved products sourced from regulated pharmacies in the UK, including popular brands like Juvéderm and Restylane.
Hyaluronic acid behaves like normal tissue (which is why lip fillers can be easily placed to look very natural), and dissolves like normal tissue after several months. It also stimulates collagen and elastin, giving an extra boost to plumpness and volume in our skin.
We’ll begin with a virtual consultation. During this allocated time with an expert aesthetician, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, and ask any important questions. We’ll then move onto an in-person appointment, where we will discuss a tailored treatment plan unique to your aesthetic ambitions. Consultations are relaxed and informal, and there’s no obligation to proceed with treatment if you decide it’s not for you.
The answer to the estimated longevity of your lip fillers is always the same: it depends on the person. But some dermal filler products are better than others. Their quality ensures results will last as long as possible. Two of the top products we’ve seen and worked with are Juvederm Volift and Restylane Kiss.
