How does it work?
We use a Juvéderm® filler which has a high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid – a substance found naturally in your body. This makes the treatment incredibly safe to use in comparison to older types of filler that were collagen or silicone based, which led to many problems. A small amount is injected around the lip border or lip body depending on what you wish to achieve. It gently shapes or plumps your lips to achieve your desired look. Hyaluronic Acid lip fillers are temporary, meaning that they will last for six to nine months before your body breaks them down. They are a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in your skin. It attracts and binds water in the skin to provide a gentle, natural looking volume – it’s perfect for the delicate lip area.
The medical injector will carefully examine your lip area and discuss your desired outcome. The treatment starts with the area being cleansed and numbed using a local anaesthetic. Then the dermal filler is injected into the lip area. The specialist will massage the product to create a smooth, natural-looking result.
Why should I have this treatment?
If you want to address any of the following concerns, then lip fillers will be the right treatment for you:
- Add volume to thin lips
- Create a pronounced cupids bow
- Define the lip border for shape
- Balance uneven lips
- Reduce fine “smokers” lines
- Improve confidence
What results can I expect?
The results of this treatment are evident immediately but will continue to develop over the following seven to 14 days. The lips can become a little swollen for 24–48 hours following a lip enhancement treatment, so we suggest you avoid planning social events during that time. This is completely normal and will subside over a couple of days. Our lip fillers are all temporary Hyaluronic Acid fillers which typically last for up to 12 months. As your doctor or nurse will explain to you during the consultation, this can vary between individuals.
Please don’t drink any alcohol during the 24 hours before your treatment. We also advise that you avoid using aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs a couple of days before your treatment (unless they are taken for a chronic medical condition). Avoiding these medications will reduce your risk of bruising at the point of injection. Ask your medical practitioner if you have any concerns.
If you suffer with cold sores, we may advise a course of Aciclovir before we carry out the treatment.

We also advise that you use mineral make up to reduce the risk of infection, avoid hot drinks for a few hours after treatment, and keep your lips hydrated using recommended products, such as DermaQuest’s 3D Lip Complex or Antioxidant Lip Repair to help your lips heal, stay moisturised and hydrated.
Q: How much downtime is there after treatments?
A: With any injectable treatment, there is a small risk of bruising, bleeding and swelling. Our doctors and nurses aim to produce natural-looking results for each client. During the 48 hours following your treatment, your lips may be swollen and bruised, but it should not stop you returning to your usual routine.
Q: How do I know if I’m suitable?
A: Our clinical professionals will talk through any suitability concerns with you to agree whether lip fillers will provide the look you desire. Eligibility will also depend on your age. We can only treat clients who are 18 and over. We’ll also consider your allergies, whether you’re pregnant and your medical history.
Q: How is it different from other treatments?
A: Lip fillers can provide a natural look and feel by adding volume or defining shape. The results from lip fillers are longer lasting than other cosmetic lip-plumping products you can buy, and can be tailored to the look you want to achieve.
Q: What happens during the treatment?
A: Your treatment will take place in one of our private treatment rooms. The practitioner will cleanse the area and then perform the injections. Treatments typically take around 30 minutes.
Q: What do lip injections feel like?
A: The lip area can be sensitive, so we apply a numbing cream to the area before the treatment. We also only use Juvéderm® lip fillers which contain anaesthetic for maximum comfort during and after the treatment.
Q: What will my lips feel like after they’ve been treated?
A: Hyaluronic Acid lip fillers are very soft in the lip area and won’t feel hard or lumpy when injected properly. Your lips will look and feel natural.
Q: What happens after the treatment?
A: You can get back to work on the same day but we do advise you to avoid wearing makeup (apart from mineral make up), going to the gym on the same day, or touching the injection site. This is to minimise the risk of infection.
Q: Are lip filler treatments safe?
A: We only use internationally recognised suppliers who rigorously test their products. Juvéderm® are approved by the FDA and provide certified medical devices for use as dermal fillers. They carry the European CE mark.
All our medical injectors are registered with their respective governing and regulatory bodies, which include the NMC, GMC and GDC. There are very few risks with dermal fillers as these are semi-permanent. Although extremely rare, if we need to reverse the results of a filler, we can use injections to counteract the effect and reverse the process.
The medical injector will carry out the consultation, deliver your treatment and manage your follow-up care at DestinationSkin. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have.
