Lip Filler Treatments at Retreat Clinic Beauty and Aesthetics Salon in Staines-upon-Thames
Lip enhancement treatment, also called lip filler treatment or lip augmentation, is a popular non-surgical treatment to boost or restore shape and volume of the lip through the injection of a lip filler. At Retreat Aesthetics Clinic in Staines-upon-Thames the procedure is administered by one of our fully qualified and experienced aesthetics specialists, including Dr Priya Kumar BDS.
If your lips have lost definition over the years, or never had the fullness you would like, lip fillers could be the solution. They will enhance the shape and volume of your lips to give you more definition to your smile and thus more confidence in your appearance. Whether you want a subtle change or much fuller lips, you can choose the amount of filler to be used and the exact look you want. In the course of a thorough consultation, we can create a personalised treatment programme for you, to ensure your lips stay plump and continue to look great.
At Retreat Clinic we use high quality fillers including Juvéderm, which contain hyaluronic acid. This is is a naturally occurring substance in the body and is essential for maintaining the skin’s moisture, firmness and elasticity.

Benefits of Lip Enhancement Treatment
Lip fillers have been specifically developed to enhance the natural shape of your lips, adding volume and definition. They can create a younger-looking appearance and can be tailored to ensure that you achieve a natural look. The treatment is non-invasive and there is virtually no recovery time needed. Although you may experience some slight redness and swelling, this will usually subside quickly. It’s a non-permanent treatment, with the fillers breaking down naturally over time, lasting on average 4-12 months. You can then return to the clinic for a top-up treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions – Lip Fillers
What are lip fillers made of?
The fillers we use are made of Hyaluronic Acid (or HA), a substance which is found naturally in the body. Because of this, HA is easily accepted by the body, and once is has been injected into the skin it will gradually be broken down over a period of months. Hyaluronic acid fillers work by plumping up the lip directly and also trapping water within lips to create a natural looking pout.
Are lip fillers safe?
Lip fillers are generally very safe, but as with all aesthetic treatments, there’s always a small chance that something could go wrong. That it why it’s so important to have the procedure carried out by a fully qualified specialist, such as Dr Priya Kumar and the team at Retreat Clinic.
HA is a very safe product to use, because in the unlikely event of a mistake, your practitioner will be able to reverse the effect with another injection.
Will lip fillers achieve an instant result?
Depending on the look you are aiming for, it may take more than one session to achieve the full result. We will discuss this with you at your initial consultation and devise a programme with you. We will also advise you of the likely cost.
Does lip enhancement hurt?
No, at Retreat Clinic we provide appropriate anaesthetic to maximise comfort during treatment.
How long does lip augmentation last?
This varies according to a range of factors. On average most people need top ups every 4 to 6 months, but we will advise you further on this at your initial consultation.
Do lip fillers make your lips feel different to natural lips?
When applied properly by a fully qualified specialist, lip fillers should not feel any different from natural lips.
What can I expect after a lip filler treatment?
Immediately after the procedure, your lips will be slightly swollen but this should settle down within 24 hours and you will be able to see the final result
