Look like you only better
Lip fillers are used to enhance the lips and create a fuller but natural looking lip line. We use hyaluronic acid lip fillers that are specifically designed to restore natural fullness and create beautifully shaped lips.
We have all seen the results when too much lip filler has been used to plump the lips, so our aim is to produce a beautiful, subtle enhancement.
You can choose which areas of your lips you’d like the focus to be. Whether you want to do both lips, just the bottom lip, or the middle of the top lip, you can plump wherever you and your Doctor decide will best complement the rest of your facial features.
If you do want a fuller look our Doctors will give you a programme of treatment that gradually builds up the desired look.
We insist on lip fillers with a high safety profile and so should you
We use Belotero® lip fillers which have FDA approval and an outstanding safety profile. Great results can be obtained after a single treatment of injections, and can last for several months.
LOVELY LIPS – NATURAL AND EVEN
The BELOTERO range of hyaluronic acid fillers integrate so smoothly into your skin that they feel completely natural, just like your own tissue.
ENHANCE YOUR COMFORT
BELOTERO fillers contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to enhance your treatment comfort, especially in the sensitive lip area.
BELOTERO are committed to quality and to providing HA products that give safe, natural-looking and long-lasting results.
Honey Derma PDO Threads
Honey Derma Threads are made of soluble PDO (polydioxanone), a material used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery as sutures.
PDO relaxes muscles and tendons while stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO also stimulates the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, vital for creating youthful looking skin.
The PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle or cannula causing an artificial wound, inducing a healing effect which improves the skin.
The threads are re-absorbable over 12-18 months, but the body’s own collagen formation around the thread maintains skin improvement.

Lip fillers are made of a material called Hyaluronic Acid, which naturally exists as a component of your skin. As the filler is injected under your skin it adds volume allowing immediate, subtle and smooth correction.
Treatment times will take 15-30 minutes depending on the volume of filler being used. Anaesthetic cream/dental block may be applied before injections which could take a further 20 minutes.
At the beginning of the procedure, it feels like a pinch and then it stings as the filler is being injected until the anaesthetic in the product takes effect to numb any sensation. The use of cannulas makes the treatment even more comfortable. Afterward, Dr. Montero will massage your lips a little to distribute the product, and then you are ready to go about your day.
You can choose to have your lips numbed beforehand with anaesthetic cream or a dental nerve block (just like a dentist would use before a dental procedure).
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body so should not cause side effects. Swelling, redness and bruising around the injection site are all possible immediately after treatment but symptoms should subside after a few days.
You can go about your daily life after treatment but shouldn’t make any big plans (like a wedding or an important event) for at least a week in case you bruise.
Your lips won’t feel any different than normal. Not even when you’re kissing.
No! Gone are the days of over-blown lips and permanent lip fillers. Dr. Montero prides himself on his natural looking, subtle results using safe non-permanent products.
Your lips will be a little swollen at first, but you’ll see the effects of the lip fillers pretty quickly. Give your lips 24 hours to settle and the swelling to calm. Then you’ll be seeing your filled-out lips as they will be for the next few months.
Results are long lasting, up to 9 months. Just how long depends on the product used, your metabolism, lifestyle and age.
Treatment is not permanent – Hyaluronic acid is a natural product that will wear off as the body becomes used to it. Your lips will return to their natural state over time, so multiple treatments will be needed to maintain the look.
When performed by a trained doctor, the procedure is very safe. Our lead medical practitioner Dr Montero has had extensive training and practical experience.
The risks and complications are uncommon and usually easily correctable. In the rare event of a complication, the threads can be removed or repositioned. The treatment is performed under local anaesthesia, so there are none of the risks associated with general anaesthesia.
Usually only one procedure is needed to achieve the desired effect. However, there is no problem having repeated procedures if needed. It is possible to have Botox and fillers in combination to enhance the result.
You will be given a local anaesthetic prior to having the procedure and some light sedation if you feel you need it. Patients say “the worst part is having the local anaesthetic”.
The procedure is very safe and complications are rare. Swelling and bruising around the injection site are possible immediately after treatment but symptoms should subside after 24-48 hours.
Skin irregularities, asymmetries and puckering are rare side effects, which, as this technique is entirely reversible, are easily corrected under local anaesthetic.
There may be a tiny amount of bruising at the injection site and some minor swelling where the thread is positioned under the skin. These symptoms should subside quite quickly and you should be back to normal after approximately 24-48 hours.
Following treatment you will be given aftercare instructions that must be followed to avoid dislodging the threads from their supportive tissue whilst the collagen reaction takes place.
Some of these instructions include avoidance of forceful facial rubbing, strong active facial movement, sleeping on the side of your face, avoiding excessive mouth opening and some sporting activities. This will all be explained to you and with a little care is easily achievable.
You will see an immediate improvement (once the swelling subsides), however it will be three months before you start to see the full results from treatment.
Results are long lasting, up to 2 years.
Treatment is not permanent – PDO threads are absorbed by your body. Your skin will return to its natural state over time, so multiple treatments will be needed to maintain the look.
The premises are upmarket and spotlessly clean. The atmosphere in Discover Laser is one of a clinical and controlled medical environment, which I think is very important. The clinic is situated in very picturesque countryside which certainly helps to relax you when you first arrive.
Dr Montero certainly is very experienced and advises on your treatment in detail. I would recommend Discover Laser without any problem especially to anyone thinking of having a treatment for the first time and is afraid of looking ‘unnatural’. Dr Montero allows you to leave looking just like YOU, only better!
