What are lip fillers?
Our lip fillers are non-permanent, hyaluronic acid-based dermal gels. The main brand we use is Restylane. They work by attracting water from surrounding tissues and acting as a kind of sponge, filling out lines and depressions in the skin in the way collagen does. This eradicates smile lines and lip creases and improves the overall shape of your mouth. The reason we have never used permanent fillers is that we are not convinced by their safety credentials. And as doctors bound by medical ethics, our primary concern is the safety and comfort of our patients.

A very professional appointment. My questions were all answered and the treatment was quick and virtually painless. I was particularly impressed that there was a very clear and immediate route of an aftercare appointment, should it be needed. This was extremely reassuring. I have, actually, not had any bruising at all and the positive effects of the treatment are visible already. I am very happy with the treatment.
I just wanted to tell you how delighted I am with my lip enhancement! Nobody has remarked on the change, which I’m pleased about because it means it’s very subtle. The important thing, though, is that I can see the difference and I now feel I’ve got my beautiful lips back!
I hated my lipstick lines and thinner top lip and wanted lip fillers but was scared of getting a trout pout. Dr Jain reassured me that with his technique I would have my natural shape restored which would fit my face and look natural. He was so right! I am so relieved and so very happy!
I really wanted a natural and more youthful look, I knew I was in safe hands with Ravi and the Riverbanks team to deliver and I’m over the moon with the results.
I regularly see Dr Jain for my lip injections. I wouldn't go to anyone else. He is extremely professional, patient and attentive to my needs. My lips always look INCREDIBLE and so natural. There is very little pain or discomfort, as the procedure is quick and the needle is extremely fine. Dr Jain is an outstanding professional and I would recommend anyone who wants fillers to seek out his services.
A subtle turning back of the clock
Our lip fillers are safe and painless, apart from a tiny pin prick when the very fine needle enters your skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers allow doctors more control over lip volume and lead to less bruising and swelling than other dermal fillers. Most importantly, the fact that hyaluronic acid is a compound that occurs naturally in the body means our fillers restore volume to your lips in an organic, non-artificial way.

How will I feel?
You’ll leave our clinic looking and feeling fresh, lifted and revitalised. A single treatment instantly smoothens lip creases and improves the outline and shape of your lips. These results can last up to 12 months, depending on your overall health and lifestyle.
You’re in good hands
Our hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers fit with Riverbanks’ more natural and holistic approach to cosmetic beauty. They are also in line with the principles of Invisible Aesthetics, a concept pioneered by our founder and director, Dr Ravi Jain, which is all about gradual, subtle enhancements over obvious transformations.
What is the treatment used for? add_circleOur lip fillers are used to smoothen lines and wrinkles that form around the mouth and are difficult to disguise.
How long do the results last? add_circleThe effects typically last 6-12 months, depending on your overall health and lifestyle.
Is the treatment painful? add_circleApart from a tiny pin prick when the very fine needle enters your skin, you shouldn’t feel any pain. This is thanks to the local anaesthetic pre-mixed into the fillers. In fact, the deeper the filler is placed, the more comfortable it is. Some people notice a dull ache for a few days after treatment, but this tends to happen with deeper placed fillers.
When will I see results? add_circleInstantly.
Are there any risks? add_circleDermal fillers are made up of gels and if these are injected into blood vessels, they can cause blockages. This rarely happens in skilled medical hands, and if it were to, a doctor may well be able to clear the blockage with a variety of medical techniques. This is why we believe that only doctors should provide lip filler injections.
Are there any side effects? add_circleThe most common side effects with dermal fillers are minimal bruising, slight tenderness and temporary redness over the injection sites. Rarer side effects include prolonged bruising, delayed swellings and, in rare cases, allergic reactions.
