How long does the procedure take?
The procedure normally takes 20-40 minutes.
How long do the results last?
The effects of lip fillers normally last up to a year.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure can be uncomfortable, so local anaesthetic is normally used in the area.
How many sessions will I need?
Most clients only require one session to achieve the desired results. Some people choose to have occasional top-ups to maintain the look.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). There may be some bruising in the area so you may want to consider this if you are planning trips away or special days.
Are there any alternatives to this procedure?
Some lip glosses and gels claim to give a temporary plumping effect, however the results are minimal and last for a very short period. For a more permanent effect, lip fillers are the only option.
Can I combine this procedure with other procedures?
Yes, many clients choose to have fillers at the same time as other procedures.
