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.
Not all fillers are created equal...
There a numerous fillers available on the market each with varying levels of cohesivity, elasticity, longevity, hyaluronic acid concentration and protrusion. These variations will dictate how and where these fillers should be used.
At The Harley Medical Group we choose to use Juvederm Volift.
- Volift contains lidocaine which reduces discomfort during and after the treatment
- Volift allows us to fill and shape lips while also treating any present fine 'lipstick lines'
- Volift results last up to 18 months
- The hyaluronic acid is synthetically made, not animal sourced
- After one month the lip filler results can seen but the filler cannot be felt beneath the skin
- Volift is produced by the world market leader with over 35 years experience that consistently tests, reviews and improves its products to give you the best results available.
Each face is unique and while our extensive experience enables us to predict how your lip filler results will look after your treatment no-one can guarantee the outcome. This is why, for your first treatment with us, we choose to build on your results over a period of time to ensure you get the look you want whether it is subtle and natural or full and striking.
At your first treatment we will start with 1ml lip filler and over a period of time increase by 0.5ml until we know exactly how much product is right for you. When we know how much product is required to get your ideal lip filler result we will treat accordingly on your visits to the clinic, until you tell us that you desire a different result.
Not all practioners are created equal either...
Dermal fillers, including lip fillers, are regarded as 'minimally invasive' treatments and are therefore not regulated in the UK, this means that anyone can inject them. While the treatment is extremely safe and impermanent, meaning it will naturally break down over time unless permanent fillers are used, there are still significant risks with being treated by an untrained injector.
We choose to only have all injectable treatments, including lip fillers, to be administered by either a nurse or a doctor. Untrained practitioners with no medical background are at a higher risk of:
- Injections causing necrosis, a form of cell injury that results in the premature death of cells
- Infected wounds leading to permanent scarring
- Uneven and lumpy results
- Injecting the product at the wrong depth causing nodules
- Injecting the wrong filler product for the area.
Whether you choose to have your lip filler with us, or someone else, we recommend when meeting a practitioner for the first time always ask questions about the nature of the filler used and consider whether you feel comfortable having a treatment with someone who cannot answer.

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.

For muscle relaxant injections that address lines and wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes we do not treat anyone below the age of 25.
