Types of lip filler injections and what our top injectors recommend.


When it comes to unlocking lip beauty, we need to consider the types of lip injections that are on offer. Lip injections have become a popular cosmetic procedure, offering individuals the opportunity to enhance their natural beauty by achieving fuller, more luscious lips. The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is renowned for its expertise in non-surgical aesthetic treatments and boasts some of the top injectors in the field. In this blog post, we will explore the different types of lip injections and what The Cosmetic Skin Clinic’s experts recommend for those seeking a natural and harmonious look.

Dermal Fillers: the gold standard

Dermal fillers are among the most common methods used to enhance the lips. The top injectors at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic highly recommend hyaluronic acid fillers, including Juvederm and Restylane, for lip augmentation.

These fillers are renowned for their ability to add volume, plumpness, and definition to the lips while maintaining a natural appearance. Hyaluronic acid fillers are also reversible, which means that if any issues arise, they can be addressed promptly.

More on lip filler brands:

Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® is specifically designed to enhance facial features by gently refining the shape of lips and facial contours, providing definition to the mouth and facial outlines. The gel treatment effectively addresses wrinkles and lip lines, as its hyaluronic acid content attracts and retains vital moisture, resulting in a subtle, natural appearance and texture.

Restylane is a top-tier treatment designed to boost skin hydration and moisture levels from within, thereby enhancing the overall skin condition. This injectable gel, composed of hyaluronic acid, plays a vital role in restoring the skin’s elasticity and volume. With Restylane dermal fillers, it is possible to reshape and recontour facial features, ultimately rejuvenating and adding volume to the lips.

Teosyal® stands at the forefront as a leading injectable filler range crafted by TEOXANE Laboratories. Teosyal Kiss, one of its formulations, involves the application of a hyaluronic acid gel aimed at revitalising thin and deflated lips. This treatment not only provides a natural appearance and sensation but also skilfully reshapes lip contours, augments lip volume, addresses perioral wrinkles, uplifts lip corners, and nourishes the lips.

Neuromodulators: Reducing ‘Smoker’s Lines’

Neuromodulators, like Botox, can be strategically injected into the lip border to relax muscles around the mouth. This approach can reduce the appearance of “smoker’s lines” and create a smoother, more youthful appearance. While not traditional lip fillers, The Cosmetic Skin Clinic’s experts often recommend them in combination with other lip enhancement procedures to achieve the best results.

The Cosmetic Skin Clinics expert recommendations

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic our top injectors recommend the above options while also emphasising the importance of a personalised approach to lip injections.

During a consultation, we thoroughly assess each client’s unique facial structure, desires, and realistic expectations before we recommend the most suitable lip enhancement treatment. Our aim is to create a natural and harmonious look while avoid overfilling or creating an unnatural appearance.

The key to achieving beautiful, natural-looking results lies in the hands of experienced and qualified injectors like our team of expert practitioners.  Proper training and expertise are crucial for achieving optimal results and ensuring your safety during the procedure.

A few common questions patients have about lip fillers include:

Can 0.5ml – 1ml lip filler be enough?

Patients often begin with 0.5ml to 1ml of filler, depending on the treatment area, for a subtle, naturally enhanced look with noticeable volume and definition. For those desiring a more significant volume increase, a gradual approach through multiple treatments is recommended over an immediate 2ml dermal filler injection. Our practitioners will guide you during your consultation.

How long does lip filler take to settle?

Lip fillers deliver immediate results, but the initial pronounced appearance will slightly diminish as swelling subsides. Generally, it takes approximately four weeks for the filler to fully settle and achieve the desired final look.

Is lip filler migration common?

Certain social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram have made it seem as if lip filler migration is an extremely common occurrence. In fact, it’s not. It is uncommon yet it can occur and reasons for this are usually based on the experience of the practitioner and people going to “back-alley” clinics to be treated by someone who isn’t qualified or trained to do so.

In summary

Lip injections at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic offer a variety of options, each tailored to your unique needs and goals. Consult with our experts to determine the best lip injection method for you and enhance your natural beauty with confidence.
