What the treatment can do

Chasing fuller, more symmetrical, and hydrated lips? Top lip thinning when you smile? Noticing your lips thinning and wrinkling with age? Our lip enhancement treatment can immediately rejuvenate and augment your lips.

Using lip filler injections, we add volume and hydration. This improves the texture, balance, shape, and symmetry of your lips. We can also use a lip flip to relax the lip muscles, adding vertical height and reducing top lip thinning when you smile. At Cosmetic Connection, we use strong numbing to reduce discomfort, and techniques proven to significantly minimise swelling and bruising.

Our experienced team have dedicated their practice to bespoke lip augmentations. During your consultation, we will listen to your goals, provide honest advice, and a design a personalised lip treatment plan just for you. We’re here to help you achieve your dream lips.


Experience the benefits of a bespoke lip enhancement done by experts at Cosmetic Connection:

  • Improve lip fullness and balance
  • Hydrate dry lips
  • Shape and define the Cupid’s bow and lip borders
  • Increase lip height
  • Correct asymmetry
  • Add lip projection, enhancing your side profile
  • Reduce lip thinning when smiling
  • Improve the appearance of a gummy smile

Enjoy immediate, fully reversible results lasting 12-24 months when using lip filler for your enhancement.


If you want to enhance the shape, definition, and fullness of your lips, or wind back the clock on lip ageing, a lip augmentation with cosmetic injectables is a convenient and effective solution.


To ensure your lip enhancement goes to plan, follow these preparation guidelines:

  • Remove all makeup immediately before your appointment
  • Avoid consuming alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment
  • Refrain from intense exercise immediately before your appointment


After your lip enhancement, proper aftercare is crucial for optimal healing and results:

  • Mild discomfort, swelling and minor bruising is to be expected when dermal filler has been injected into the lips
  • Gently apply a wrapped ice pack to the treated area to minimise swelling and bruising
  • Avoid makeup, excessive alcohol and intense exercise until the following day
  • Refrain from applying pressure to the treated area for 7 days for filler and 4 hours for anti-wrinkle
  • You lips may feel firm initially if you’ve had lip filler. This will soften gradually over 2-4 weeks


Experience fuller, defined, and hydrated lips immediately after your lip enhancement. Any swelling is usually mild, and will quickly subside within a few days.

If its your first lip enhancement, the result may slightly reduce as the filler settles. This is normal, and you can build your result with another treatment if needed. Gradually sculpting your lips ensures precise and natural-looking results.

Expect to maintain your new lips with a repeat lip filler treatment every 12-24 months. Lip flips will need repeating more often, usually every 2-3 months.

At Cosmetic Connection, you can expect a personalised treatment. Whether you are looking for a subtle enhancement, or a fuller pout, our experienced team will tailor your lip injections to your lip goals.

    A lip enhancement is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment to augment the appearance of your lips.

    We use cosmetic injectables such as lip fillers and a lip flip to improve the shape, size, definition, texture, and hydration of your lips.

    Many people can benefit from lip enhancement injections. The most common reasons people choose to undergo a lip enhancement are to:

    • Increase the size and plumpness of small lips
    • Reduce top lip thinning when smiling and laughing
    • Add definition to the lips, and the cupid’s bow
    • Improve lip hydration and texture
    • Restore volume lost from the lips with age
    • Improve lip asymmetry
    • Correct scars caused by surgery and trauma

    Lip enhancement injections augment the volume and muscle strength of your lips.

    Lip dermal filler injections improve volume, size, proportion, shape and definition. They also have a hydrating effect, owing to their capacity to draw in water.

    Muscle relaxing injections can be used to relax the lip muscles. This is known as a lip flip, and can increase the height of your lips by 1-2mm. It also stops your top lip thinning when you smile.

    It is normal to feel apprehensive about pain and swelling when booking in for a lip enhancement. The fear of looking overdone is something everyone feels, especially the first time.

    At Cosmetic Connection, we prioritise a natural and comfortable treatment. We use strong numbing, tiny needles, and premium quality products to significantly reduce discomfort.

    Our medical professionals have extensive training in treating all types of lips. They take pride in designing a bespoke lip enhancement treatment to achieve your ideal lips.

    After your consult, we numb your lips with strong numbing cream or injections. strong numbing gel will be applied to the lips. The cosmetic injectables are then placed using tiny needles.

    If you’ve had lip fillers, we will mould and massage your lips for a smooth result. You’ll be provided with an ice pack to minimise swelling and bruising, and can return to most activity immediately.

    If you’re getting a lip flip as part of your enhancement, this will usually need repeating every 3 months.

    If you’ve enhanced your lips will fillers, you will need to build your result with 1-3 treatments over 6 months.

    Once you’ve achieved your ideal result, maintenance is generally required every 12-24 months.

    Lip enhancement injections are a very simple treatment. After your comprehensive consultation, we numb your lips using a strong numbing gel or injections.

    We then clean and mark your skin. Using tiny needles, we precisely place cosmetic injectables to key areas of your lips.

    After the lip injections, any lip fillers will be moulded.

    Lip enhancement injections take 5-20 minutes depending on the details of your treatment plan.

    When performed correctly, lip enhancement injections have minimal discomfort.

    Here at Cosmetic Connection, we prioritise a comfortable treatment. We only use premium quality products with local anaesthetic. We also use high strength numbing options, tiny needles, and a gentle technique to further minimise discomfort.

    After your treatment, your lips may be slightly tender. You can apply a cold pack and take over-the-counter analgesia to alleviate any tenderness.

    You will see a result either immediately, or within 2 weeks after your lip enhancement. A lip flip works in 2 weeks, while lip filler achieves an immediate result.

    It is important to allow 2-4 weeks for the injections to fully settle before assessing your final result.

    Your lip enhancement injections will generally last:

    New evidence show that lip filler injections can last years longer than previously thought.

    If you are still happy with your lips but wondering if you’re due for a top-up, wait a bit longer first.

    Expertly injected lip fillers should never look fake.

    Fake lips are caused by using:

    • The wrong type of filler
    • Too much lip filler
    • Incorrect injection technique

    Lumps after lip enhancement injections with filler are not normal. While treatment-related swelling may feel firm and uneven, persistent lumps should not occur.

    If you have lumps after lip enhancement injections last more than 4 weeks, contact your injector for a follow-up.

    We treat lip filler lumps in a few ways:

    • Using dermal filler dissolver
    • With firm massage
    • By puncturing the lips with a tiny needle and squeezing the filler out in clinic (do not try this at home).

    Proper preparation for lip enhancement injections is important for a safe treatment:

    • Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup

    After lip enhancement injections your lips will be slightly swollen and red. There may be some mild bruising, and your lips will be numb.

    As the anaesthetic wears off over the following 1-2 hours, your lips will be slightly tender. They’ll also feel firm if you’ve had lip filler.

    Swelling, redness, tenderness, and any bruising will quickly settle. Any lip fillers will soften and integrate over 2-4 weeks, settling into the final result.

    Swelling after lip enhancement injections is usually mild.

    You can reduce swelling by carefully following the before and aftercare instructions. Gently applying a wrapped cold pack to your lips after your treatment minimises swelling and bruising.

    Severe swelling is rare. It is more likely with aggressive injection techniques, or when you have not followed the preparation and aftercare steps.

    Lip enhancement injections are categorised as a low-risk treatment.

    Visiting an experienced, doctor-led clinic is the best way to ensure that your lip enhancement injections are performed as safely as possible.

    The most common side effects from lip enhancement injections are swelling, tenderness and redness. Bruising can also occur.

    With a gentle technique, tiny needles, and good aftercare, swelling and bruising after lip enhancement injections is usually mild.

    The following groups are unsuitable for lip enhancement injections:

    • Aged under 18
    • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Those with unrealistic expectations about what can be achieved with lip enhancement injections

    Lip enhancement injections can migrate where lip filler has been used. In experienced hands, migration is extremely rare.

    The most common causes of migration after lip enhancement injections are:

    • Injecting too much lip filler in 1 session
    • Aggressive injection techniques
    • Injecting lip filler too frequently
    • Undergoing regular ‘top-up’ treatments

    Lip flip injections with anti-wrinkle cannot migrate.

    Lip enhancement injections cannot give you cold sores.

    If you have had cold sores in the past, lip enhancement injections can cause a cold sore flare.

    If you have a history of cold sores on your lips, your treating doctor may advise you to take cold sore tablets on the day of your treatment.
