At our Cardiff aesthetics clinic, we offer the very best in skin and beauty treatments. One of these is our transformative treatment for lip fillers, which can help boost the shape and appearance of your lips for a more aesthetically pleasing result. Discover more about it, its benefits, and how safe it is in today’s blog post.


So, what are lip fillers?


Lip fillers – also known as lip augmentation or lip injections – are used in and around the lips to boost their appearance, whether it’s one lip or both. They can address lines and wrinkles around the mouth; balance an asymmetrical smile; combat thin lips; and create a different lip shape, for example, the cupid’s bow. For these reasons, they’re a highly popular treatment in the Cardiff area.

What are lip fillers made of?


Lip injections use hyaluronic acid filler, which is a naturally occurring substance that’s well-tolerated by the body. Hyaluronic acid is moisture-rich, making it ideal for plumping the lips. It also breaks down in the body over time and doesn’t need to be dissolved. However, lip filler dissolvers do exist for corrective treatment.


Are lip fillers safe?

Yes, lip injections are safe and well-tested. They have a long, widespread history and have been used by everyone from celebrities to people you may know in your social circle here in Cardiff. Lip injections are long-lasting and a great alternative to risky cosmetic surgery, which permanently alters your appearance and comes with extensive recovery time.

Do lip fillers come with risks?


Like any injectable treatment, there is always a small risk of infection, scarring and other side effects. The skin may also feel sensitive or appear bruised and/or swollen during the healing period. However, in most cases, aside from mild redness and tenderness, no adverse effects are seen.

Who can carry out lip injections?


Lip augmentation should only be carried out by trained and qualified experts, like Dr Kathryn here in Cardiff. This helps minimise risks and side effects while helping to ensure you get the results you deserve.

How do I book my lip augmentation?

We’d recommend getting in touch with Dr Kathryn and her team in Cardiff at the earliest moment – so you’re able to book a personal consultation at a time and date that suits you. We will always carry out a consultation ahead of treatment, even if you’ve had lip augmentation before, to ensure your safety. That’s why we’re a leading choice for lip fillers in Cardiff – and beyond.
