Lip filler treatment

Lip fillers, also known as lip injections, lip enhancement and lip augmentation, are used to add or restore volume to the lips. If your lips have lost definition over the years, or if they’ve never had the fullness you’d like, fillers can enhance the shape and volume of your lips and provide more definition.

Popular with customers of all ages, the results of lip filler injections can range from very subtle to noticeably fuller lips, depending on the rest of your facial features and the desired outcome. Our personalised treatment programme will ensure that your lip fillers treatment matches the look you’re after.

Lip fillers frequently asked questions

Lip fillers, also known as lip filler injections or lip augmentation, are non-surgical cosmetic procedures designed to add volume to the lips. The process involves injecting a solution into the lips using a very fine needle. Although not permanent, lip filler is an effective way to add fulness to the lips over an extended period, with results usually lasting between 3-12 months. Exactly how long lip fillers last can vary, depending on the types of lip fillers used and your lifestyle.

Because everyone has different needs when it comes to cosmetic procedures, we create a bespoke treatment plan for each and every patient in line with their desired results. For this reason, lip fillers’ cost can vary. To give you an idea of how much this may be, the lip fillers price in our UK clinics typically start from around £230 for one treatment. We also offer great value lip filler courses such as our Juvederm packages, which you can explore on our pricing page. During your consultation, you’ll chat to your patient advisor about the results you’d like to achieve, and they’ll advise you on a suitable treatment plan and give you a detailed overview of the lip filler cost. They can also chat to you about our payment plans, which include a 0% interest 12-month repayment plan for procedures exceeding £250. Our finance plans are provided by our partner Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd who are regulated by the FCA. All are subject to status, and terms and conditions apply.

You’ll be at your chosen UK clinic for around an hour in total and have the chance to ask any last-minute questions before your treatment begins. Firstly, your expert practitioner will apply a topical numbing cream to your lips which takes around half an hour to take effect. Then, the solution will be carefully injected using a fine needle and will take around 30 minutes to complete. Afterwards, your lips will be massaged to distribute the lip line filler evenly.

Lip filler injections are only ever administered by our fully qualified, highly trained practitioners and nurses. All our practitioners are registered with the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners, which means they have the right qualifications and skills to perform your treatment. Our expert team is committed to providing the highest standard of care to patients – so you can book your lip line fillers with confidence, knowing you’re in the best hands.

Many of our patients want to know how much lip fillers hurt, particularly those who are new to this type of cosmetic procedure. While most of our clients find the treatment a little uncomfortable, they don’t have any lip filler pain. Before we begin your lip filler treatment, we’ll offer you a topical numbing cream to help reduce any discomfort.

It’s up to you how much of a change you want to achieve. Some of our clients are just looking to make a subtle change, while others want much fuller lips. We’ll talk to you about the look you want and let you know our recommendations.

Like with all types of cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetic treatments, there are some potential lip filler side effects. For instance, you might experience some slight swelling or bruising after lip fillers, but this usually clears up within 48 hours. Many patients say they feel some discomfort during the procedure, but you shouldn’t have any severe pain after lip fillers. There’s minimal recovery time needed after the treatment, so you can return to most day-to-day activities straight away. However, we usually recommend avoiding exercise for the first 24 hours after your treatment.

As we use non-permanent lip fillers in our UK clinics, you can expect them to last between 3-12 months. The products we use for our lip filler injections are made from hyaluronic acid, which will be naturally absorbed by your body over time. Exactly how long lip fillers last will depend on several factors, like the type of filler you have, how much is injected, and your lifestyle.

So, how do lip fillers work, exactly? Essentially, filler solution is injected beneath the skin, which plumps up the lips and helps to improve definition. The types of lip fillers we use at Transform are made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring acid that our skin cells produce to keep skin moisturised and healthy. Sometimes our environment, the products we use, and the natural ageing process mean our levels of hyaluronic acid can decrease. This may lead to dry, dull skin, and lines and wrinkles. This is where lip filler injections come in, filling the skin with hyaluronic acid to boost hydration, add volume and improve definition.

Here at Transform, we’re dedicated to offering the highest-quality lip filler injections to our patients. All our products are FDA-approved and are carefully designed by premium brands to make sure you achieve your desired look. The types of lip fillers we use in our UK clinics are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring acid produced by our skin cells. They are non-animal and suitable for all different skin types. Please note that these are not permanent lip fillers and the solution will be absorbed naturally by your body over time. For this reason, you may wish to have a lip filler course, separating each treatment by around three to six months to maintain your desired level of volume.

It’s up to you to decide how much of a change you want. Some of our clients simply decide on a subtle change, while others want much fuller lips. We’ll talk to you about the look you desire, and let you know our recommendations.

Here at Transform, we offer non-permanent lip fillers that give exceptionally good results. Although they are not permanent, our lip fillers are long-lasting and will usually maintain their volume for between 3 and 12 months – but exactly how long lip fillers last will vary between patients. Because they are not permanent, lip fillers will typically need topping up every three to six months on average.

Our non-permanent lip fillers offer great long-lasting results, so you shouldn’t need to get them topped up regularly. Typically, our patients will need to get their lip line fillers redone every three to six months to maintain the same level of fulness and definition.

Rest assured that your lip filler course will be carried out by a qualified and experienced practitioner registered with the JCCP. However, as with any form of cosmetic surgery or procedure, there are some lip filler risks, like bruising, swelling and infection. During your consultation, your patient advisor will talk you through all the potential lip filler risks and side effects. They’ll also give you lip filler aftercare tips to ensure the potential risks are minimised.

After the insertion of lip filler, swelling is common, and you may find that your lips feel quite tender for several days. In terms of the lip filler swelling stages, your lips are likely to be most swollen the morning after the procedure. This will gradually ease, and all swelling will usually disappear after 48 hours. Your practitioner will talk you through all potential side effects and how to manage them, including how to reduce swelling after lip fillers.

You may experience some swelling and bruising after lip fillers, but you should be able to leave the clinic straight after your treatment and go about your usual daily activities. However, there are some lip filler aftercare tips to follow to aid the healing process. We recommend you don’t do any exercise for 24 hours after your treatment and avoid putting makeup on or around your lips. Your patient advisor can give you more information on lip filler aftercare during your consultation, and you’ll have access to our 24/7 helpline if you need any advice once you get home.

We recommend you avoid wearing any make up on or around your lips for at least 24 hours after your treatment to aid the lip filler healing process.

If you’re wondering whether you can smoke after lip fillers, the general advice is to avoid smoking straight after your treatment. This is because it may increase the risk of infection and may also dry out the skin. However, smoking should not impact the overall outcome of your lip line fillers.

We advise patients to avoid drinking alcohol after lip fillers. This is because alcohol is known to thin the blood and can also enlarge blood vessels – which may make the bruising and swelling after lip fillers worse. We also recommend avoiding alcohol for the days leading up to your appointment to minimise these side effects.

More details on lip fillers

When you have lip line fillers with Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. Our highly skilled and experienced practitioners will listen carefully to what you’d like to achieve from your lip filler treatment, and give you support throughout your journey. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Lip fillers step-by-step

The first step on your journey towards fuller lips is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering a lip filler course of treatment, and discuss the likely costs and finance options, as well as when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our professional practitioners or nurses.

At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll guide you through your treatment options and create a personal treatment plan for you to ensure you achieve the best results. You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead, including lip filler techniques, the products we use, the potential side effects of lip fillers, and more. Our practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you may have. If you feel ready to go ahead, we can book your treatment in for the date and time that suits you best.

On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner or nurse. They’ll apply a numbing cream to the areas where the lip filler is going to be injected. Once it has taken effect, your practitioner will use a very fine needle to carefully complete the series of small lip filler injections, and then massage your lips to ensure the product is evenly distributed. The treatment takes about 30 minutes and, although you may experience some slight swelling or bruising, you’ll be able to see the results straight away.

You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities. Any swelling or bruising after lip fillers usually disappears within 48 hours, although you may notice that your lips are tender for up to 10 days following your treatment.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself, so we’re here to support you following your lip filler procedure. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. At Transform, we have a long record of producing the very best results with our non-permanent lip fillers. Typically, lip enhancement results should last up to six months after treatment, although results can vary from person to person. The filler solution we use is made from hyaluronic acid, which is not permanent and will naturally be absorbed by the body over time. That’s why lip fillers need to be topped up every three to six months to maintain lip volume and definition. We can chat to you about the right lip filler course and how often you may need to come back into the clinic.
