Natural Lip Fillers Treatment

Natural Lip Fillers Treatment Essentials

Area of concern: Thin, thinning, flat, disproportionate or asymmetrical lips.
Assessment: Our doctors will examine the natural presentation of your lips, assess their proportions, the level of their projection, their definition and overall shape.
Treatment: The procedure is performed using a needle or cannula depending on our doctors assessment.
Time taken: We usually allocate 30mins for lip filler appointments in total, although this can be extended.
Comfort: We use FDA approved products which contain an anaesthetic. A sting can be expected initially.
Results: Immediate. Some swelling will occur but this resolves within a day or two in most cases. The product will take a couple of weeks to fully integrate.
How long will it last?: This is highly patient dependent but our prefered product is FDA approved and licensed for up to 12 months. However, because you move your lips so much you can expect between 6-10months.
Cost: €500

Lip fillers by experienced doctors, using high quality products, delivering natural results...

Lip fillers is the most common specialist dermal filler treatment sought by our patients. This isn’t surprising when you consider the lips are one of the first things that people notice when they look at our face. They are also one of the first parts of us that thins and deflates with age.

At Amara, we do not do the ‘done’ look. Our doctors aim only for natural lip filler results. We do not want you leaving with over-filled duck lips as it wouldn’t be a good reflection of our skill and expertise. Thanks to extensive training in the latest techniques, using only the highest quality lip fillers, and careful planning, we avoid unnatural results.

A question we get asked all the time is “How much is 1ml of lip filler?” or “How much is 0.5ml of lip filler?” A little later on we’ll explain why this is question doesn’t really make sense without a closer look at the product being used.

Excellent5.0 Based on 190 reviews from review us onMalou SchottMalou Schott ★★★★★ 5 glowing Stars!This is my second time visiting Amara clinic to get lip fillers done and I have also got Botox here before. I'm absolutely in love with the place! The staff somehow manages to be professional and down to earth and so, SO friendly at the same time. Today I was a little nervous, but the skin therapist that took my details and the doctor doing the procedure made me feel at ease and they really listened to my wishes, while also putting in their professional advice. They took time out to explain to me the reason they try not to just sell product in ml, like many other places that aren't up to Amara standards do, instead they tailor the needed amount and products (it isn't just one as I thought) to each individual and their face for optimum results. My thin lips are now defined, plump and all the small wrinkles are gone! I'm a make-up artist who has never been able to wear a colourful lipstick with confidence, but this Christmas I'll be sporting a bright red lip!ChristieChristie ★★★★★ I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!js_loader

Are lip fillers safe?

No procedure comes without risk. However in the hands of a well trained medical injector using high quality FDA fillers there is no reason to fear this treatment.

Our doctors are aware of the blood vessels and other lip anatomy that need to be respected when performing a treatment. They are trained to perform high quality lip procedures, and are constantly upskilling.

The product used is also very important. Cheap, untested, and untraceable fillers can easily be bought on line. We only use the highest quality products from the Juvéderm®Vycross Range of dermal fillers. These are FDA approved products so their clinical efficacy and safety has been rigorously tested.

0.5ml Lip Filler vs 1ml Lip Filler?

This is the most common question we get about lip fillers. But it is also the wrong question to ask.

Dermal fillers are made in different ways and have different properties – which means not all products are the same. They have different cohesivities and are made up of different concentrations of hyaluronic acid as they are required to do different things.

The same is true for lip fillers. A 1ml syringe of a low quality filler might not be able to do what 0.5ml of a high quality filler will do – and it likely won’t last as long anyway. Product selection is absolutely vital. Peoples lips are also different sizes, so the starting point is different for everyone.

Our doctors will select the right product, and inject only what you need to ensure you get the result you want, and your lips don’t look “done”.


How can I avoid my lips looking unnatural?

This depends on four things – a skillful injector, a high quality product, a good assessment, and the right volume of lip filler.

At Amara we are very careful with how we approach this treatment and recognize that everyone has a different starting point, and wants different things.

Our doctors are experienced and trained in all aspects of lip filler treatment while we only use FDA approved products. We will not put more than is necessary to get you the result that you want.




Are lip fillers sore? What can I expect during and after my treatment?

The first thing our doctors will do is have a chat with you to understand what you’re looking for. Then they will assess your lips and work out a treatment plan and run through it with you.

The treatment itself will take from 10-20mins depending on the work you’re getting done. The injections feel like little scratches at first but the anaesthetic in the product takes over very quickly. It is a very well tolerated treatment.

You can expect some injection site redness, tenderness and a little bit of swelling directly after the procedure. This usually resolves within minutes to a couple of hours for most people.

Results will be immediate and the product will continue to integrate over the coming couple of weeks. When everything has settled you should have more plump, defined and balanced lips.



"I was delighted with my 2 treatments and from the time I walked in I was greeted so pleasently by everyone. Would definitely recommend Amara."
Hannah, 56, Dublin

Why should I trust Amara? Safety first is why.

We recommend you read this expose we were involved with for the Irish Times where we discuss safety around lip filler treatments.

Here’s a checklist of things you should be doing before booking in for a lip filler treatment.

1 Check with your injector whether the filler they use is FDA approved. FDA approval attests to safety and efficacy. Ask to see the packaging if you are unsure. Cheap, untested fillers are readily available online and unqualified people are injecting them in Ireland today.

2 Avoid deals and discounts. FDA approved lip fillers and the expertise to administer them safely does cost a bit for peace of mind. If a deal seems too good to be true, it likely is.

3 Be wary of any injector who looks to administer fillers without a separate consultation in advance.

4 Choose an injector with a set location, such as a clinic. Avoid vendors who do not have a permanent address, website or will be unavailable for follow-up questions or concerns.

5 Check the practitioner’s qualifications – if they’re not a registered doctor or nurse we would avoid them at all cost. In Ireland, anyone can inject lip filler but in Ireland, only a doctor can prescribe and administer the dissolving agent in the event anything goes wrong.

Here’s a word on our treatment philosophy in the ‘social media and influencer age’.

If you have other general unanswered questions about dermal filler and lip filler treatment you might find an answer over on our dedicated Dermal Filler FAQ page.




Frequently Asked Questions

Lip fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to enhance the volume and shape of the lips. They belong to the category of dermal fillers. These fillers typically contain artificial hyaluronic acid , which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body.

The lip filler is injected using a cannula or needle. This filler substance adds volume and enhance the contours. They can also help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, as it acts as a replacement for lost fat and proteins, resulting in the smoothing of lines and wrinkles and the volumization of sunken areas.

When performed by a qualified and experienced professional, lip fillers are generally safe. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects.

The longevity of lip fillers can be of 12 to 18 months, but it varies depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. Age and metabolic rate, which determine how quickly the body metabolizes calories into energy, play a role. Typically, younger individuals have a faster metabolic rate, leading to a shorter lifespan for lip fillers.

Lip filler injections can cause some discomfort, but a numbing cream or local anesthesia is often applied to minimize pain during the procedure. Common side effects include temporary swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. Rarely, more serious complications like infection or allergic reactions may occur.

To ensure a safe and complete dissolution of lip filler and subsequent refilling, it is recommended to separate the administration of the dissolving agent (such as hylase) and the refill of lip filler by one week.

In the event that lumps from lip filler persist beyond a two-week period, they can be corrected by administering additional filler to even out the affected areas. Alternatively, your injector may opt to use a small quantity of hyaluronidase enzyme to dissolve the lumps or completely reverse the effects of the initial injections.

The cost of lip fillers varies depending on factors such as the provider’s expertise, location, and the amount of filler needed. In Amara, which is located in Dublin, the cost is €500 (and the repeat is €400).

You should wait from 24 to 48 before applying any makeup on your lips after the procedure.

Yes. In many cases, patients opt for a combined treatment of anti wrinkle injection and dermal fillers during a single appointment. These two types of injectable treatments utilize distinct substances and are frequently utilized together to effectively address a patient’s desired facial enhancements.

Recovery time is usually minimal. After the procedure, it is common for the lips to experience swelling, sensitivity, and bruising. Typically, the swelling subsides within 24 to 48 hours, although in some cases, it may take up to a week.

When performed by a skilled injector, lip fillers can achieve natural-looking results. It’s important to communicate your desired outcome clearly with your practitioner before the procedure to ensure the desired results.

Lip fillers, composed of hyaluronic acid gel, retain a soft and natural texture. The firmness of the filler can vary among different products, with some fillers being firmer than others. It is worth noting that lips that have been overfilled may feel firmer compared to lips with a smaller amount of filler.

There are no specific dietary restrictions following lip injections. However, it is advisable that during the initial 24 hours, to avoid foods that are difficult to eat or require excessive chewing, as well as messy foods, to minimize the likelihood of wiping the lips and disturbing the injection sites.

Smoking can heighten the risk of infection subsequent to receiving lip fillers; therefore, it is advisable to refrain from smoking for a minimun of 24 or 48 hours. Additionally, it can cause the lips to pucker, exerting pressure on the treated area and potentially leading to discomfort following the injections.

The actual injection process typically takes around 15 to 30 minutes. However, the overall appointment duration may be longer to allow for consultation and preparation.

Exposure to UV radiation from sunlight and tanning beds can degrade hyaluronic acid, along with collagen. Consequently, it is crucial to take safety precautions to safeguard the long-term outcomes of dermal filler treatments.

Initially, your lips may feel slightly tender or numb. However, once any initial side effects subside, the lips should feel natural, and you may not notice a significant difference in sensation.

After lip filler injections, it is generally advised to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and saunas for a few days. Also, you shouldn’t consume alcohol for a minimum of 24 hours after the treatment, as alcohol has the potential to act as a blood thinner.

No, the results of lip fillers are not permanent. Over time, the filler substance breaks down and is naturally absorbed by the body. To maintain the desired results, follow-up treatments are necessary.

We use only high quality FDA approved products with a preference for the Juvederm Vycross range of dermal fillers because we can stand by their safety and efficacy.

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)

I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)
