If you are searching for natural looking lips with just the right volume, smooth contours or the perfect smile, you might want to consider dermal fillers. Fillers in and around the lips can give you natural, well-shaped lips with minimal downtime. Dermal fillers can also reshape and hide smoker’s lines and sun damage. Our experienced nurse and dermatologist injectors will help you get the gorgeous pout you deserve.
- Dermal fillers last between 3-6 months depending on the type of filler chosen by your specialist injector
- Lip filling is an art form that consists of a fine balance volume and definition in the top and bottom lip
- Our injectors ensure a high degree of comfort through the use of distraction techniques and pain relief
- For many cosmetic patients, muscle relaxants and lip fillers are the starting point to looking and feeling incredible
If your lips lack volume, definition and youth, temporary dermal fillers can help shape your lips for that ‘kissable’ look. Achieve the perfect proportion between the upper and lower lip.
Lip filling at Cutis Clinic comprises of a 7 step procedure:
- Perfect proportion and symmetry
- Volume and plump pout (not the trout pout)
- Border definition
- Upturned corners
- Smooth contours
- Prominent philtrum (the area that connects the nose to the upper lip)
- Cute Cupid – the defined V or cupid’s bow…
Getting it right is essential – lips do not look good when either overfilled or underfilled. And remember, you want your lips to look natural for your age.
Following lip augmentation with dermal fillers you may experience some swelling and bruising for up to 48 hours. In some cases, swelling may last for up to 6 days. Dermal fillers in the lip area have the longest ‘downtime’ or swelling tendency when compared to fillers in the cheeks, under the eyes and to raise acne scars.
Refraining from alcohol and taking part in physical exercise will speed up your recovery process.
That depends on what type of filler is selected. The most common dermal filler used for lips last for 4-6 months. Cutis Clinic does not offer the option of permanent lip fillers due to their significantly higher incidence of undesired complications and side effects.
No, Cutis Clinic injectors ensure that your procedure remains as comfortable as possible. We provide several pain relief options that include topical anaesthetic cream, local anaesthetic injections and distraction techniques.

You should discuss your pain tolerance level with your injector during your initial consultation.
Yes! Dermal fillers can be used to replace volume loss around the cheeks, chin, eyes and mouth. In fact, most of our dermal filler procedures treat midfacial fat loss in these areas. We will select a filler that matches your choice of location, your skin structure and your age.
