About Lip Fillers
About Lip Fillers
There are many reasons why people are unhappy with the shape and size of their lips. For some their lips have started to appear thinner and less defined as a result of the natural ageing process. For others their lips have always been narrow with a less pronounced cupid’s bow. Make-up can create the illusion of bigger lips, however many lipsticks are prone to smudging, distorting and bleeding into the vertical lines known as 'lipstick lines' above the mouth.
Our lip fillers have been specifically developed to enhance the natural pattern of your lips, helping you achieve more defined, beautifully shaped, bigger lips. Our semi-permanent fillers are a manmade, non-animal gel that mimics the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, giving safe, long-lasting and natural looking results.
There are many lip fillers on the market that are substandard in terms of ingredients and quality. At The Harley Medical Group we only use the most advanced temporary lip filler range available. Most importantly, we only allow qualified and certified doctors and nurses to inject fillers in our clinics.

Lip Fillers Before and After
LIP FILLERS BEFORE AND AFTER - REAL LIFE STORIES
Pouneh shared her Lip Enhancement story
Once I went for the actual procedure, I was quite nervous about the pain. However this was extremely bare-able and personally, I hardly felt any. It takes up to two weeks to see the maximum results. I thought it was lovely and subtle. My guy friends never realised however a few of my girls did and this made me feel like it really did the job by being subtle enough. So happy!

How are Dermal Fillers Administered?
Out temporary fillers are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of skin of the area to be treated. This fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance.
Depending on the type of dermal filler used, results can last from 6 to 24 months.
Does Lip Enhancement hurt?
Lips are very sensitive, so we apply a local anaesthetic before your treatment to numb the area. There may still be some discomfort, if this is too great inform your nurse practitioner who will look to ease this as much as possible.
