LipLase laser in London
LipLase is a new revolutionary non-invasive treatment at Centre for Surgery using a combined dual laser approach (Nd:YAG and Er:YAG) using the amazing SP Dynamis laser for enhanced fullness and colour enhancement of the lips. This is a new option for patients who are not keen on injections with lip fillers. LipLase carries minimal discomfort and downtime and the results are immediately visible. LipLase laser lip-plumping treatments are required once a month for three months followed by one session every three months to maintain the increased fullness in the lips. Not only do we treat the lips and surrounding skin, but we also target the naso-labial folds to stimulate the collagen using the unique SMOOTH mode of the erbium laser.
Achieve larger lips without lip fillers
LipLase™ is a non-invasive procedure using the amazing Fotona SP Dynamis laser which enhances the appearance of the lips. This method is appealing as it involves no incisions or injections. This is a day procedure, and you will be able to return to your usual daily routine immediately with little downtime involved.
LipLase uses heat pulses on and around the lips. This works to stimulate collagen production, which results in the lips becoming fuller and plumper over time.
There are many benefits to undergoing laser lip enhancement. These include:
- No injected materials (such as HA fillers) used
- Little to no downtime
- No needles (great for those who are needlephobic)
- No bruising
- Can return to work immediately

Ideal candidates for liplase
You will be a suitable candidate if you wish to increase the appearance of your lips and do not wish to use fillers or undergo a surgical procedure such as a lip lift.
You will need to be at least 18 years old to undergo this procedure.
You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Prior to undergoing this procedure, you will need to have a consultation with one of our practitioners, who will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
The LipLase procedure
LipLase™ is a quick, non-invasive procedure. It will take around 30 minutes to complete.
You do not require any injection of local anaesthetic. However, if elected, a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment due to the slight discomfort during the treatment of external parts of the lips.
The Fotona Erbium laser using the unique non-ablative Smooth Mode is a deep laser treatment that targets the vermillion borders of the lips, the oral commissures, the ridges of the philtrum and the Cupid’s bow area of the lips. The erbium laser acts by creating a thermal effect in the deeper layer of the dermis without affecting the epidermis. Controlled temperature increases of up to 60 degrees celcius results in collagen regeneration. The lips undergo a lifting effect which results in more exposure of the lips due to an increase in volume. The laser energy directly stimulates the production of new collagen.
The second step of the procedure is working with the Nd:YAG laser in Piano Mode which is the safest mode for reaching deeper lying skin tissues, with minimal thermal effect on the surface. Ida will also treat the lips above the vermillion border in order to have a well-defined vermilion border which resembles the effect of a filler.
To achieve the best results, you will generally need three to four treatments.
Recovery after LipLase
After the treatment the lasered tissue goes through three stages of healing: in the first stage, some swelling appears immediately after the treatment and lasts for about two to three days. The second stage is characterised by superficial surface peeling that lasts for 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. Ida recommends to apply skin moisturiser as a lip balm to keep the lips moist and sun protection 50+ to the lips to prevent peeling. The third stage is neocollagenesis, the development of new collagen. The patient needs to avoid going swimming, sporting activities, sun or sunbeds after the procedure.
If the patient reports a previous history of herpes infection, Ida will recommend antiviral agents for recurrent herpes simplex infection before and after the procedure. Many patients report the feeling of the lips being swollen after the procedure. The patient may feel the sensation of mild burning for up to 30 minutes after the treatment. You will notice results improve over time as the collagen continues to be produced. Results will continue to improve over four to six months.
This is a non-invasive procedure with minimal discomfort, minimal risk of change in skin or lumpiness in one area, and all our patients love it!
