Lip enhancement is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. It helps increase volume in your lips via the injection of a lip filler. JUVÉDERM® or RESTYLANE® are both popular treatments to boost shape and volume of the lip.
Lip enhancement treatment using either JUVÉDERM® or RESTYLANE® is a popular non-surgical treatment to boost shape and volume of the lip via the injection of lip filler.
As the effects of ageing take hold, lip volume depletes to leave a thinner, flatter appearance. Wrinkles and fine lines may also appear, contributing to a less smooth look, less defined borders and a flattened ‘Cupid’s bow’, creating an overall tired and aged appearance. Lip enhancement can provide a safe and effective non-surgical solution to reverse these symptoms.
Both JUVÉDERM® and RESTYLANE® are FDA approved products with a wide variety of uses in aesthetic procudures. They are both non-animal based and made with hyaluronic acid rather than collagen to plump up the skin. Since the hyaluronic acid these products is created by biosynthesis in a laboratory, patients are not required to take an allergy test before receiving treatment.

Lip injections at Cadogan Clinic are very safe but minor side effects include redness, swelling and itching at the injection site and bruising which can last from 2 to 10 days. If you find that you have an uneven result, your practitioner will see you for a treatment review and this can be rectified. If you suffer from cold sores, dermal fillers to lips may not be a good treatment for you. An allergic reaction to the products used is unlikely.
Dermal Fillers for lips at Cadogan Clinic use reputable products such as Juvederm or Restylane which are designed to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and folds, or create more youthful and attractive facial contours by adding volume. When injected by an experienced Cadogan Clinic doctor, your lips will look fuller, but they will remain natural looking.
Following a thorough consultation with your practitioner, the dermal filler that is selected as being the most appropriate for you is eased into either the lip border or body (or both) using a very fine needle and the procedure itself should take approximately 15 minutes. The product contains an anaesthetic but it may be possible to have a numbing cream applied to the area prior to the treatment if you would prefer. Results can be seen straight away.
At Cadogan Clinic we use only the safest hylauronic acid-based dermal fillers which are long lasting but not permanent. The effects will fade gradually but should last between 4 and 13 months depending on which treatment you have had. Following this, we recommend that you come back to us for a top up treatment. The filler will biodegrade in the skin naturally and disappear should you choose not to return for a top up treatment.
Most dermal fillers that we use at Cadogan Clinic include an added anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment virtually painless as it numbs the skin. If you feel that you would rather come in early for numbing cream application before your dermal fillers treatment, this is also possible.
Lips define a face and are one of the first things a person will notice about your appearance. Lips can become thinner over time, or it may be that you have naturally thin lips. Dermal filler lip enhancement will make your lips bigger and fuller and can reverse a downward turned expression due to ageing.
Lip enhancement at Cadogan Clinic can also help to fill out the ‘smokers’ lines’ which appear around the mouth due to smoking and ageing. It can improve the appearance of your lips through adding more shape, better structure and more volume. Results typically last 6-8 months, so it’s not a permanent fix, and you can adjust the size and shape over time through additional treatments.
Dermal fillers at Cadogan Clinic are very safe as we use only hyluaronic acid based fillers which is a substance which occurs naturally in the body and they are long-lasting but semi-permanent. Our practitioners who carry out lip enhancements are healthcare professionals such as doctors, dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Despite this, it is important to discuss any possible side effects or complications of lip injections with your consultant so they can ensure you have the best form of treatment and care.
Before your lip fillers treatment, it is important that you have had a consultation with your doctor to establish what you want and what they recommend for you to see if this treatment is for you. Though many dermal fillers contain anaesthetic, you may choose to apply numbing cream to the area prior to the treatment.
There is no down time required following lip plumping injections but as you might experience some mild redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, or itching after the treatment you may want to bear this is mind before a big event. These effects are completely normal and should clear up in less a fortnight.
Once the treatment has been completed the results of Juvederm lip enhancement will begin to appear immediately. The full effect can usually be seen after just a few hours, and will last approximately 10 – 12 months per procedure. However, this can vary depending on the patient and the amount of Juvederm used during the procedure.
If you would like to find out more information, please book a consultation with one of our specialists.
Juvederm treatments are relatively painless procedures, although some patients may experience a small discomfort when undergoing the treatment.
There are several measures we put into place to keep the pain and discomfort to a minimum, these include:
- The use of numbing cream prior to the injection. - The use of ice packs or other cooling agents post procedure - The use of lidocaine to temporarily block the nerves that sense pain. This can be mixed directly with Juvederm.
The use of pain reduction methods will highly improve the experience for the patient.
If you would like to find out more information, please book a consultation with one of our specialists.
After undergoing a Juvederm treatment, some temporary side effects are expected and are normal as part of the healing process.
Common side effects from injectable Juvederm fillers are redness and soreness surrounding the treatment area.
Most side effects of Juvederm are temporary, and should not persist longer than 3-4 days. The length of time in which side effects may last can often vary depending on the patient and the area in which the procedure has taken place. Side effects of Juvederm fillers do tend to fade within a few days of treatment.
Juvederm should not be used by patients with severe allergies to bacterial proteins, or patients with a history of anaphylaxis.
It is advised to book a consultation with one of our licenced practising professionals at Cadogan Cosmetics when considering the use of injectable Juvederm fillers.
There are many reasons why people may feel that they are ready to undergo Juvederm lip fillers; from having a thin or no visible upper lip, wanting to achieve a more voluptuous kiss or to fill out unwanted early wrinkles.
If you are considering undergoing a Juvederm treatment, then please contact Cadogan Clinic to book a consultation with one of our practising professionals. During your consultation, our team will be able to answer any questions that you may have to, help put your mind at ease, and talk you through the most suitable dosage for you and your desired look.
Juvederm, injected into the lips, will commonly last between 4 and 8 months, however this can vary depending on the patient and also the particular brand of Juvederm. Once the initial treatment has been completed, no aftercare is required to maintain the results of the treatment, and normal routines can be resumed the same day.
If you wish to maintain the fuller lip for longer than the expected 4-8 months, then top up procedures will be required every 5-7months. Should you choose to do so, the Juvederm dosage can be altered on each occasion to help build a more accurate, desired look.
When receiving Juvederm, the dosage will determine outcome of the procedure; smaller portions of Juvederm will help to create subtle differences to the treatment area, whereas larger doses can contribute to more noticeable differences. Our practitioners will be able to advise you on what dosage is right for you.
The procedure does not take long; the product is loaded into a syringe, and then injected directly into the treatment area. The procedure is relatively pain free due to the use of numbing cream; however, this will vary depending on the patient.
Juvederm is not suitable for woman that are pregnant, or those that are currently breastfeeding.

Juvederm is an extremely popular form of injectable filler, commonly used for lip enhancement; however, it can also be used to treat natural wrinkles and folds in the skin, which are commonly found around our eyes and can appear on our foreheads.
Juvederm is composed mainly from a natural material called hyaluronic acid, which is found in the skin of mammals and is responsible for holding in the skin’s moisture. As our bodies begin to age, the skin gradually begins to lose its hyaluronic acid, which in turn, results in thinner and a more wrinkled skin. This is often noticeable around the mouth lips and eyes.
Juvederm Lip enhancement is a treatment designed specifically to restore the moisture in the lips to provide fuller and more youthful lips. To achieve the appearance of a more youthful and fuller lip, the Juvederm filler is carefully injected, using a tiny needle, into the desired area and the area surrounding.
Juvederm is made primarily of natural substances, and over time, it will gradually be absorbed back into the body. Once a desired look has been achieved, it is common for a patient to require repeat procedures in order to maintain this more youthful and fuller face.
Initial treatments usually last for approximately 10 – 12 months; however, this can often vary depending on each patient. Due to the nature of Juvederm, and that the effects can be reversed over a long period of time, it is extremely popular amongst patients who have no experience of cosmetic surgery.
We highly recommend that patients book a consultation with Cadogan Cosmetics, to discuss with our practising professionals the appropriate dosage suited to your skin when considering Juvederm lip enhancement.
