Perfectly plumped, natural-looking lips
Lip enhancement is a non-surgical solution to combat common issues including lip thinning, narrowing or less-defined lips. Our lip filler injections, which involve the precise, controlled administration of hyaluronic acid solution into the lips, are one of the most popular procedures available at Aesthetic Ace Clinic. The result is natural-looking lips that are plumped to perfection. At Aesthetic Ace Clinic we are committed to use only the best and the safest lip fillers available to provide our clients with an exceptional, safe treatment, and exquisite results. All of our products are CE marked (to show they meet the applicable EC directives) and have been personally tried and tested.
WHAT IS LIP FILLER?
The lip filler treatment is suitable for anyone who would like fuller lips. The safe, efficient procedure can replace the volume and definition that the ageing process has taken away. It can also be used to correct the symmetry of the lips, creating a balance between the upper and lower lip.
HOW DOES A LIP FILLER TREATMENT WORK?
Dr Noor will assess your natural lip shape and decide if the lips’ symmetry needs evening out and if one lip might need more product than the other. After applying a topical anaesthetic, she will inject the hyaluronic acid dermal filler in a series of small injections all around the lip lines. The treatment usually takes between 15 to 30 minutes.
There is normally little to no pain beyond the feeling of pressure and a slight pinch. There is no downtime either and you can return to your normal activities straight after the treatment. One thing to note, it is important to avoid dental work for 2 weeks prior and after your lip enhancement treatment.
POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS
There may be some swelling or bruising for up to 72 hours after the procedure. The swelling can be treated by gently holding an ice pack to the lip area for short periods of time and should largely reduce by the second day. The bruising can be easily covered with concealer and/or lipstick.
Though extremely rare, there are a few more serious side effects that can occur and might require medical attention. These include:
signs of infection (itching and redness around the lips)
severe swelling and/or severe bruising that doesn’t get better after a couple of days
any rash in or around your lips following your procedure
If you are prone to getting cold sores, make sure to let Dr Noor know during the consultation appointment to discuss preventative methods and medications, as the lip filler treatment can sometimes trigger a cold-sore flare.
Finally, lip fillers are not suitable for anyone with severe allergies, and you should avoid dermal fillers of any kind if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
RESULTS AND AFTERCARE
Results are instant but will complete in two weeks once the filler will be completely integrated into the skin. Patients should also avoid lying on their side for a couple of days and try not to kiss or touch their lips too much for at least 2 weeks afterwards. It is important to keep in mind that achieving the look you want does not necessarily happen overnight. For example, if you have very thin lips it can take a few sessions to achieve a very full but natural look.
Fillers can last anything from 8 to 12 months, but the exact duration varies from person to person based on various factors, such as the individual’s metabolism and lifestyle. On average most people need top-ups every 6 to 8 months to keep up the desired size and shape.

How long do the results last for? Made from hyaluronic acid, which breaks down, fillers will eventually be absorbed into the skin after around 6-18 months time. Depending on the area being injected and the amount of filler used.
I’m pregnant, can I have lip fillers? Currently, no thorough research has been undertaken to conclude the side effect of lip fillers in pregnant women. For this reason, we do not advise lip enhancement procedures during pregnancy.
What’s the difference between Dermal Fillers and Botox? Botulinum toxin relaxes muscle movement that results in wrinkles, whilst dermal fillers smooth out wrinkles. They can be combined to achieve more effective results.
How much do lip fillers cost? During your consultation we will discuss your objectives and goals for your lips. Our doctor will then decide on how much filler is needed to enhance your lips and get your objective.
How soon will I notice results? After procedure, you can notice the difference immediately and your skin will look revitalised naturally. Although, the full effect of the fillers won't be visible until 2-4 weeks after.
Are dermal fillers reversible? Yes- we can reverse any Hyaluronic acid based filler with an enzyme called hyalase. This takes 24-48 hours to take effect. The filler is dissolved and area returns to its original state.
Does it hurt and is it safe? Most dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic, meaning people generally find the procedure more comfortable than expected. This procedure is completely safe and you'll be in the professional hands.
Who is a good candidate for injection of dermal fillers? A good candidate for dermal fillers is one who is physically healthy, a non-smoker, and has realistic goals about improvement of appearance.
How is the dermal filler injection performed? A local anesthetic cream may be offered for comfort before the dermal filler procedure. Using several small injections, the dermal filler is placed at the desired locations for maximum aesthetic effect.
How will the area look immediately after the dermal filler injection? Immediately after the dermal filler injection the treated area may appear overfilled with mild bruising or swelling. There may also be some transient redness and numbness. These symptoms may be alleviated within a couple of hours or a few days using topical ice application.
What are the precautions to be taken after treatment ? You are advised to avoid alcohol, coffee, or direct sunlight exposure for 24 hours after the injection.
What are the associated risks with dermal fillers ? There is a small risk of developing a rash, swelling, bruising, infection, and formation of lumps under the skin.
What is the recovery time after undergoing treatment with dermal fillers ? There is zero downtime after undergoing a dermal filler injection. In most cases, you should be able to return to your activities of daily living right away.
What are dermal fillers? Dermal fillers are substances that have been developed and tested for injections into certain areas of skin and tissues for the purpose of cosmetic improvement. They are compatible with the body and can be classified as temporary. The compound is called hyaluronic acid and mimics the same compound in our body. They are used to uplift the mid face, cheek augmentation, lips augmentation, improve the shape of the nose, etc.
