What our clients say…
I had previously had lip fillers done with a registered nurse elsewhere but it was lumpy and not the size and shape I was after. So I wanted to find a Doctor this time and researched a lot and found this clinic. Dr. Vi is amazing, I had a great experience and a good chat during the process so it made the entire procedure much more at ease! He was very patience and really took time with me as I don’t do well with pains! But Thank you so much, I love my lips now!
Dr. Vi was the go to. The studios were immaculate and clean. My lip fillers look great and have lasted for months longer than I expected.
Nice cute reception. Discreet entrance entrance 😉 Wonderful Dr and thoughtful staff at the clinic. Loved ace the patient coordinator on the phone. They seem genuinely interested in the patient and don't treat you just like another number. My lip fillers look great.
And our results speak for themselves…

Frequently asked questions
What are lip fillers made from & are they safe?
Here at SKIN CLUB, only high quality dermal fillers and lip fillers are being used to create volume, contour and add definition to the lips. Hyaluronic acid is one of the key ingredients for Lip Fillers, a substance which naturally occurs in the body and so it’s almost completely safe to use.
How long do lip injections last?
Temporary Lip Fillers will typically last between 6-12 months, however this depends on several factors including the volume of filler injected and the brand of the dermal fillers. Also we may include lifestyle factors, such as smoking or sun exposure, which can affect the longevity of results as well as how quickly your body breaks down the filler.
Do lip fillers hurt?
During the treatment, you will feel a bearable level of discomfort. Some clients choose to have anaesthetic cream applied to the lips, which should make the treatment more comfortable. The lip filler also contains a local anaesthetic called Lidocaine, this will help to ease discomfort post treatment.
Is it true that your lips feel hard once you've had lip enhancement?
Tender and sore lips for the first couple of days after the treatment are expected and you may have the sensation of that their is heaviness in your lips. Your cosmetic doctor will be able to give you an indication of how your lips should feel in the days following your treatment so that you know what to expect.
Can I get 0.5mL of lip fillers?
This is a frequently asked question and the answer really depends on the Cosmetic Doctor. Our Cosmetic Doctors rarely use 0.5ml on our patients as it brings about little difference to the size of the lips. The cost of 0.5ml or 1ml is the same because you are using the full syringe and unfortunately dermal filler only comes in 1ml syringes from manufacturers. Sometimes our Cosmetic Doctors are training staff and they have test product or left over product. In such circumstances the case is different and yes you can have 0.5ml. This option is only reserved for VIP or repeat patients as SKIN CLUB.
Ice packs are offered to reduce the swelling with the lip as swelling occurs after treatment. To avoid bruising of the area its important to apply ice, however this is not backed by evidence and more of a comfort measure. Patients are reminded not to touch the area when it is being treated. Its common to be suprised at how good your lips look when you are having the treatment done and then be compelled to touch them, just to make sure whether they are real! We can tell you now that the results are instant and yes they are real once the dermal filler is being injected into the lips. Lips may also dry out in the first 12-24 hours so using a lip balm can help.
The lip area is sensitive to swelling and rarely it can take upto 7 days before the swelling dissipates, with the full effects of lip fillers being seen and felt by 2 weeks. At this stage, the filler treatment will be reviewed by the practitioner. Small lumps are common at this time and can be massaged gently as they will absorb. If these lumps are larger or persistent, they can be corrected by the treating doctor.
Does the doctor use numbing gel, nerve blocks or ice?
Evidence suggests that numbing gels and ice have limited benefit in treating pain when it comes to lip filler and dermal filler treatments. Beauty is minor pain as they say. However, with the new fillers being introduced to the market which now carry a healthy dose of numbing solution, it works wonders in taking away any discomfort. We inject high quality dermal fillers such as this and make the whole procedure for our patients much more comfortable. A Nerve Block is rarely used as it carries unnecessary complications in itself.
How long before I can wear lip liner or lip stick again?
No makeup or product should be worn or applied to your lips for at least 12 hours following treatment.
When will I see results?
The difference will be noticed immediately but for the product to completely settle in it may take 2-6 weeks. Every treatment is tailored to the patient’s needs. Our treatment plans are designed to minimise risk, and provide long term effects.
Is there any downtime?
Usually up to 2 weeks after your treatment there may be swelling and bruising, but easily covered with makeup. Extreme warm environments such as saunas or sunbeds should be avoided within the 2 week stage post treatment. Manipulation of the treated area should also be avoided.
Am I right for this treatment?
If you are a normal healthy person then you can get lip fillers at SKIN CLUB. Our treatments take minutes at the hands of our Cosmetic Doctors. Moreover, wrinkles that develop due to lifestyle factors such as ageing/smoking can also be treated to a significant extent around the lips.
Smoking lines that develop around the lips require an expert eye for attention.

As with all anti wrinkle and dermal filler treatments, patients should avoid all blood thinners for 48 hours prior to treatment. Rao J, Chi GC, Goldman MP.

I want my lips to look natural but subtly fuller. How do you avoid the 'duck lips' look?
SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors work with the natural shape of the lips to add volume and definition. ‘Duck lips’ often occur when the wrong type or too much filler has been used. That’s why it’s important to ensure your practitioner has extensive experience along with a detailed knowledge of facial anatomy.
