Lip filler treatments have emerged as a go-to solution in pursuing plump and perfectly sculpted lips. Before embarking on this cosmetic journey, you must make informed decisions to ensure not just a fuller pout but a safe and satisfying experience. Here, we delve into five crucial considerations that can make all the difference in achieving the perfect lip enhancement. Remember, bigger is not always better.

Volume of FIller: It’s not a matter of 0.5ml or 1ml


  • The volume of lip filler used is a pivotal decision that directly influences the outcome of the treatment. Communicate clearly with your practitioner about your desired volume increase, keeping in mind that moderation often yields the most natural-looking results. Overfilled lips can appear unnatural and disproportionate to your facial features, reducing overall attractiveness, which is the exact opposite of what you’re trying to do. A skilled practitioner will consider your facial anatomy and work collaboratively with you to determine the ideal volume for a harmonious and balanced look. Often the correct volume is only arrived at during the treatment.

There is no way of predicting the volume of filler required for a lip filler treatment. Certain fillers are designed for certain jobs and there is a huge degree of difference in quality too. It's not just as simple as 0.5ml or 1ml.
Result Expectations - Keep it real


  • Managing expectations is crucial when it comes to lip filler treatments. While it’s natural to desire a noticeable enhancement, it’s equally important to remain realistic about the achievable results – we can’t all have lips like Angelina Jolie. Communicate openly with your Amara doctor about your expectations and listen to their professional insights. They can provide valuable guidance on what is feasible based on your facial structure, ensuring that the end result aligns with your goals while maintaining a natural appearance. 

Some people are blessed. You may never be able to achieve the lips of someone whose lips you love. But that doesn't mean we can't give you good results. The key is managing your expectations and respecting safety boundaries.

Quality of Product Used: This matters more than you think.

Not all lip fillers are created equal, and the choice of filler product significantly impacts the longevity and appearance of your enhanced lips. Opt for reputable brands that use high-quality ingredients. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are commonly preferred due to their natural-looking results and the ability to be reversed if needed. Please talk about the available options with your practitioner. While not required for use in Europe, FDA Approval is the gold standard of approval globally. FDA-approved products are of verifiable quality, safety and traceability.

Qualifications and Experience of Practitioner: Beauticians in nail bars are not Doctors in clinics

The most critical decision is selecting a qualified and experienced practitioner to perform your lip filler treatment. Ensure your chosen professional is registered, certified, and has aesthetic experience. Ask to see before-and-after photos of previous clients, read reviews, and inquire about their experience with various lip shapes and sizes. The practitioner’s skill greatly influences the outcome, making this a decision that should never be compromised. At Amara, all of our doctors undertake regular advanced training sessions from some of the leading injectors in Europe and beyond.

Potential Adverse Events: Understanding the Risks:

Before opting for lip fillers, it’s essential to be aware of potential adverse events and how to mitigate them. Common side effects include bruising, swelling, and redness, which are typically temporary, and resolve of their own accord in a matter. However, more severe complications, though rare, can include infection or granulomas. Discuss these risks thoroughly with your practitioner during the consultation and inquire about their emergency protocols. Choosing a qualified professional and following post-treatment care instructions significantly minimises the likelihood of adverse events.

Lip filler treatment is the most popular filler treatment in the world for a reason and is not something to be scared of. However, it requires careful consideration of various factors to ensure a satisfying and safe experience. From deciding on the right treatment plan and managing expectations to choosing a high-quality product and a skilled practitioner, each decision plays a crucial role in achieving results you can be happy with. By prioritising these considerations, you will enhance your lips and empower yourself with the knowledge to make informed decisions that align with your aesthetic goals and overall well-being. Confidence is everything.
