One of the most common treatments with filler in our aesthetic clinic in Crystal Palace is lips.
There is a considerable variation in lip shape, volume and upper to lower lip ratio depending on your age and ethnic background.
It is important to take these factors into consideration along with personal preference as to the type of shape you want and what fits with your overall facial features.
There are many different techniques available to enhance different parts of the lips. However, it is not always about having very large lips, as it is possible to give a very subtle look if that is something you prefer.
Lips are one area where it is very easy to over do, and look ‘done’. Everything will be discussed and reviewed as part of your consultation and a bespoke plan given.

Lip Fillers Crystal Palace
Cosmetic beauty treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years, with lip fillers being one of the most sought-after procedures. Lip filler treatments involve the injection of dermal fillers into the lips, to plump and volumize the lip line, giving a more youthful and defined appearance.
Types of Lip Fillers
There are various types of injectable fillers available, but at London & Surrey Aesthetics we use hyaluronic acid as these are easily dissolved if there are any complications during your lip procedure.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin, which helps to retain moisture and hydration, giving a smooth and fine appearance. Our recommendation is to use high quality lip filler to minimize the risk of lumps and give a beautiful look.
Lip Filler Procedure
The lip filler treatment is a relatively quick and simple procedure that can be performed in an aesthetic clinic. We use numbing cream to reduce any discomfort during the injections. A series of injections are used to help you achieve the desired lip look.
However, swelling, bruising and some discomfort are common side effects of the procedure, which usually subside within a few days.
Choosing the Right Practitioner
It is important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner for your lip filler treatment. Practitioners who are trained in facial anatomy and injection techniques are best placed to ensure the best results and minimize any risks. A good practitioner will also be able to assess your individual needs and tailor a treatment plan to achieve the desired outcome. I am trained in many different techniques to optimise your lip structure.
Lip Filler Risks and Safety
Like any medical procedure, lip filler treatments carry certain risks, including the possibility of infection, uneven results, and adverse reactions.
It is important to discuss all potential risks and side effects with your practitioner and to follow their aftercare instructions to minimize any complications.
Lip Filler Results
Lip filler treatments can give a range of results, from subtle definition to a more dramatic enhancement. The results of the treatment will depend on the type of filler used, the amount of filler injected, and the individual’s anatomy and skin.
Most patients see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their lips, with results lasting anywhere from 6 to 12 months depending on the type of filler used.
Lip filler treatments can provide a range of cosmetic benefits, helping to enhance the appearance of the lips and restore a youthful look. If you are considering a lip filler treatment, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner, discuss your treatment plan in detail, and understand all the potential risks and benefits involved.
Downtime and Aftercare
Lip filler treatments typically have minimal downtime, with patients able to return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. It is important however to avoid wearing lipstick and other cosmetic products for at least 6-12 hours after the injections and to avoid excessive movement of the lip area to minimize swelling and discomfort. Do not touch the lips especially if you haven’t washed your hands – we carry a lot of germs on our hands.
No heat should be used for 48 hours and that includes drinking hot drinks as well as going into steam rooms or saunas. Heat can make the filler more malleable and it can then move to places we don’t wish it to go. High intensity exercise should be avoided for the first 48 hours, and alcohol should also be avoided for 24 hours too, as these increase the risk of bruising and of course increases heat. It is important not to massage the lips. If there are any small lumps at 2 weeks, please come back to clinic so that we can assess them. Massaging your lips can move the filler to places we don’t want it to go. Always use sunscreen after having filler treatment and avoid UV light for 48 hours after treatment. Avoid unnecessary pressure over the area treated especially in the first 24 hours.
