Lip Enhancement

Lip Enhancement Treatment

It is official – we really do have the best lips in the world!!!

Hosted by the International Academy of Advanced Facial Aesthetics, the award for best lip sculpting (commonly known as lip fillers) was judged by a panel of medical aesthetic experts and we won, receiving the award for delivering the best lip enhancement treatment and creating the most natural-looking results.

Quick Facts

Lip enhancement, also known as lip fillers, lip injections, lip augmentation or lip enlargement, can be performed in various ways to improve the size and shape of the lips.

Lip augmentation can have an anti-ageing effect, balance asymmetry and reduce tiny vertical fine lines and lines around the mouth.

  • Lip injections is an excellent treatment for anyone suffering from thinning lips.

  • Size of the lip is not the only consideration for a lip filler treatment – shape, projection and the prominence of the border are all important factors to consider

  • When placed correctly, lip fillers can have a significantly anti-ageing and rejuvenating effect with natural-looking results

  • Anna’s Cupid’s bow technique is a popular treatment for subtle and proportional lips. Our best compliment: no one will be able to tell you’ve had anything “done”.
Lip fillers before and after

What Are Lip Filler?

As discussed here, dermal fillers are clear gels made from Hyaluronic acid that lasts for a limited period of time. Lip fillers are designed specifically to allow natural integration into the delicate area of the lip. They can also shape, define and add projection and volume.

Who Is The Treatment For?

There are many factors to consider during a lip enhancement procedure. It may be that the patient requires a more defined vermillion border, perhaps they need some correction for asymmetry or maybe would just like a little more volume. It is also possible to lift the corners of the mouth when using dermal filler in the lip area which can have a rejuvenating effect. It may also be appropriate to fill areas around the lips when treating this area, such as smokers lines, marionette lines or nose to mouth lines.
Lip fillers are suitable for anyone that is concerned with the appearance of their lips and the appropriate treatment plan can be determined during your consultation with Anna in Swindon.

What Does The Treatment Involve?

A local anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment which can reduce discomfort during treatment. The dermal fillers of choice at Anna Medical Aesthetics have a local anaesthetic called Lignocaine integrated within the product which can make the whole process more comfortable. Treatment times will vary but generally will be around 30 – 60 minutes.

How Long Do The Result From The Treatment Last?

The longevity of lip filler varies between individuals but generally will last around 9 – 12 months and it used to:

  • Increase volume and balance of the lips
  • Hydrate lips
  • Enhance the border of the lips
  • Lift the mouth corners

Can You Get Lip Fillers While Pregnant Of Breastfeeding?

Personally, I wouldn’t treat you while you are pregnant or breastfeeding. This may seem a little harsh, but I would wait if it were myself. To the best of my knowledge, dermal fillers are not tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women, so there really is no safety data available. Since local anaesthetic is used for most filler injections, there is a risk it can get to your bloodstream and to your baby.


You will be able to carry on with your normal activities following treatment. It is not advised to do any heavy exercise and avoid UV exposure for 24 hours. 

We also advise trying to refrain from applying make-up following the procedure on the day of treatment. 

 A full list of aftercare will be discussed on the day of treatment.

Safety & Side effects

Following your procedure, it is more common than not to have swelling of the lips. This can take up to a week to completely subside but will generally reduce significantly after 24 – 48 hours.

Arnica gel/cream can also be applied to the area to help reduce the appearance of bruising.

 A full list of possible side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.

I have been seeing Anna for quite a few years for various facial procedures and the transformation from when we first met to now is incredible! This is all thanks to the amazingly talented Anna, who is a true professional, providing honest advice and guidance to get the best, natural looking results. I trust Anna implicitly and this, along with Anna’s wonderful team, is the reason I wouldn’t go anywhere else for help to age gracefully 😉 Thank you all for doing such an amazing job!

Went to Anna to get my skin ready for my wedding. I have had wonderful hydro facials, skin pen with Erica who has helped reduce pigmentation from scaring on my skin. My skin feels so smooth and looks amazing without make up. I also had a tear trough treatment with Anna. She promised me I wouldn't feel any to very little pain, and she was right. It was comfortable, and the end result looks natural. Everyone at Anna Medical Aesthetics are understanding, approachable and honest. I feel these are such great qualities to have that I will be returning for more facials and any future treatments. Thank you ladies
