What does a lip enhancement procedure involve?

Lip fillers are made up of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occuring chemical in the body whose main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin. When injected into the lips they enhance lip volume, softness and smoothness as well as restore symmetry and fill out lines and wrinkles in the skin and surrounding lips.

Numbing creams and ice are used to numb the area to be treated, before the filler is injected to add volume to the lips. Your Illuminate consultant will work with you to ensure the filler is injected to the right areas to ensure your lip enhancement is exactly as you desire. Once injected, the lips are massaged to ensure the filler is spread evenly through your lips. 

Generally, treatment involves injecting an initial volume of between 0.8ml – 1.2ml into your lips and reviewing the result in six weeks’ time. 

Although pain is usually minimal, the products used at Illuminate have a built in anaesthetic which helps with any discomfort.


    What changes can be made with the procedure?

    The procedure varies depending on the goals of your procedure*. You might benefit from an increase in lip volume, lip reshaping, or wrinkle correction for rejuvenation of the mouth area. Areas of the lips that can be corrected with lip fillers are:

    • Shape of the lips
    • Size of the lips
    • Border of the lips
    • Skin of the lips
    • Projection of the lips.
