Fuller and plumper lips are the signs of an attractive and younger look. As we age, the lip collagen gradually degrades and makes the lip look thinner with a lip contour that is less defined. To bring back the natural youthful look of the lips, or to simply augment the thin lips, we use a new generation of dermal fillers that are carefully injected into the body and contour of the lip.
The lip filler treatment is one of our most popular procedures and is a safe cosmetic option when perfromed by a specialised doctor. Depending on the desired effect, the doctor will discuss the use of different techniques and materials. All our fillers are hyaluronic acid based, which usually last from 6 -12 months.
Dr Marta has a special interest in lip fillers and uses advanced techniques to restore volume and to keep the natural facial expression.BOOK CONSULTATION

During your consultation, the doctor will discuss with you possible options and outcomes. Once you are happy to go ahead with the treatment, a topical cream will be applied to minimise the discomfort. The doctor will carefully inject the dermal filler into the lip using safe techniques, and will massage your lips to even out the filler. Before and after photos will be taken and you will be advised not to touch the lips or to apply make up for 24-48 hours after the procedure. The doctor will also advise you about aftercare and will schedule your next appointment if required.
Loss of Volume and Hydration
Botox and fillers are two different substances and they work in a different way. Botulinum toxin type A, commonly known as Botox, is a muscle relaxant that is injected into the muscle to prevent the muscle contraction causing wrinkles. Botox is usually used on the upper face, for areas such as frown lines or around the eyes lines.
Filler is a clear hyaluronic acid based soft, colour free gel. It is injected into the dermis and hypodermis to bring back the contour or volume. It is also used to stimulate collagen and elastin, and to hydrate the skin.
Both fillers and Botox have an anti-wrinkle and rejuvenating effect. They work very well in combination – Botox for upper parts of the face, and fillers for the lower areas.
Loose skin and the appearance of jowls are the result of receding bone and the thinning of deep fat pads under the skin. As the loose skin from the cheeks naturally moves down, jowling becomes visible. Treatment of jowls is focused on lifting the skin and restoring lost volume. Once the skin is lifted, jowls became less prominent and a more youthful look is restored. The cost of the non-surgical facelift, in Fulham and Parsons Green, starts from £750 and is a great alternative to the classical facelift. With mild jowling starting around the mid 30’s, a simple V Lift may be carried out to reduce jowling visibility. The V Lift in our Fulham Clinic starts from £450.
The lip filler can last from 5 to 12 months depending on what lip filler is used. There are short and long lasting HA lip fillers available.
Cosmetic treatments are popular for both women and men. The most popular male treatments are; hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and Botox for wrinkles. In our clinic, we treat male patients to preserve the masculine features. For example, we would not raise the lateral eyebrows. Another common procedure for men is jaw line contouring to give more definition to the jaw line and jaw angle, or non-surgical Rhinoplasty.
Botox treatments last on average from 3 to 6 months. This depends on the treated area and muscle activity. People with over active muscles may need a top up of Botox a few weeks after the original treatment.
Dermal fillers on average last from 6 to 18 months. Some materials are longer lasting. We recommend a thorough consultation with a cosmetic doctor to identify the best treatment for you. The length of time that fillers last also depends on the area that they are used. For example, lip fillers tend to last a shorter time than cheek fillers because lip muscles are more active than cheek muscles. During the consultation, our cosmetic doctor will tell you what materials are used and how long they last.
There are two indications for Botox treatment. One is preventative Botox – this is done in the mid 30’s to prevent the formation of deep wrinkles. The second indication is already existing static lines. The static lines start to form in the late 30’s and early 40’s. The best practice is to prevent, not to treat!
Dark circles around the eyes is a common problem for men and women. Dark circles are caused by the hollow around the orbital rim and skin pigmentation. We usually recommend a combined treatment; tear trough filler and targeted skin peels. Some home skincare products may also be required. Tear trough treatments are very complex and must be performed by experienced cosmetic doctors.
Every medical or cosmetic treatment carries potential risks. Botox and fillers are relatively safe, compared to other more invasive procedures. Some of the most common unwanted effects are swelling, bruising and tenderness in the treated area. It is very important to make your cosmetic doctor aware of any medical conditions and of the medication you take.
There are many dermal and lip fillers available on the market. In our clinics, we use products that are FDA approved and widely tested. We use a new range of hyaluronic acid based gels called dynamic fillers. These fillers work together with muscles creating the most natural effects. Also, a lot depends on the skills of the injector. This is why cosmetic injectable treatments like Botox, and lip or dermal fillers, should be carried out by an experienced doctor.
A lot of patients are worried that they will look strange or ‘overdone’ after undergoing Botox or filler treatment. Dr Marta has a special interest in natural dynamic aesthetics. She is very careful and spends a lot of time treating her patients to provide natural but fresher looks. For patients wanting a more subtle look, smaller amounts of fillers are recommended. Patients wanting a more dramatic look require larger volumes of dermal or lip fillers. Dr Marta discusses the expectations, treatment options, and previous treatments with each patient.
Dr Marta was very welcoming and friendly. She listened to me very carefully and spent time discussing my treatment. She made me feel comfortable and I was happy with the results. I highly recommend her services.
I had skin tightening treatment and Botox done with Dr Marta. I am very happy with the results. She is very professional and reassuring. I feel like her fees are reasonable compared with other clinics in Fulham.
