If you’ve felt that winkles are making you look older than you feel, and want a more youthful and brighter look, anti-wrinkle injections might be right for you. With both Botox® and Azzalure® injections available, Dr. Shirin Lakhani, the experienced practice leader at our Greenhithe, Kent clinic and the team at Elite Aesthetics are here to help.
‘Injectables’ for anti-aging and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles are still increasing in popularity in the UK and the western world – and not just to remedy current skin issues, but also as a preventative measure among younger people. Lasting for around three to six months, or longer with regular treatment, and usually taking less than an hour per treatment, it is easy to see why anti-wrinkle injections are so sought after at our clinic.
Our clients in Bexleyheath, Bromley and Tunbridge Wells want to be able to maintain movement and expression in their faces following wrinkle relaxing treatments, and to create an appearance that is youthful and beautiful, without looking like ‘work’ has been done. Dr. Shirin treats our patients with absolute care and subtlety, using her extensive medical experience and attention to detail to create the perfect look for you. We even offer a complementary top up at your two week review, ensuring you get the best value out of your experience with us. We work to make sure that any kind of anti-aging, skin softening, or forehead smoothing treatment we administer leaves our clients absolutely satisfied and feeling their best.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat muscular disorders, migraines, and even bladder and bowel disorders. At Elite Aesthetics, we specialise in using anti-wrinkle injections to treat areas in the face including around the eyes, forehead, chin, jawline, neck, and nose, as well as to treat hyperhidrosis.
Improving the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet and bunny lines are some of the most popular treatments requested by our clients in Gravesend, West Malling and Maidstone.

Following a detailed consultation, which takes full account of your medical history, your concerns and what you want to see from your treatment. Dr. Shirin will discuss with you which treatments are best suited for you, your lifestyle and the results you want to achieve. These options could include wrinkle relaxing injections using market leading brands such as Botox® and Azzalure®.
Both Botox® and Azzalure® are compounds of botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum.
Both brands work similarly, by stimulating nerves, relaxing the muscles and stopping them from contracting and creasing, which is what causes wrinkles in the first place. Azzalure® spreads farther from the point of injection than Botox® does, which can be an advantage for larger areas, while Botox® is better for smaller, more precise treatments. At your consultation, Dr. Shirin will be able to tell you which brand is better for your personal treatment plan.
In truth, after thousands of tests by clinics around the world, there are no significant differences between Azzalure® treatments, and Botox® treatments for the patient. When administered by a trained professional, they both help to ensure that skin is left visibly smoother and more beautiful.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face to relax muscles, helping to stop wrinkles forming, as well as smoothing out lines that are already present on the face. It is often used on the upper part of the face such as the forehead, to treat frown lines, crow’s feet and bunny lines (lines that appear on the bridge of the nose when you sniff or sneeze), but can also treat areas in the lower face. These include the chin, to smooth out the jawline and prevent dimpling, and the neck, to improve the appearance of loose skin around the neck. Smoker’s lines (vertical lines that appear around the top lip), marionette lines (lines that reach from the corners of the mouth down towards the chin, giving the mouth a drooping or downturned effect) and milder nasolabial folds (smile lines) can also be treated.
Botox® and Azzalure® can be used for non-surgical face-slimming procedures, providing a more defined visage. They can also be used to turn up the tip of the nose, prevent the appearance of sagging skin, and are recognised as a treatment to improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to treat excessive sweating (known as hyperhidrosis) in the armpits, forehead, palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
There are a number of benefits that anti-wrinkle injections can give our clients. Your skin will have never looked better, and you will find yourself feeling fresher, brighter and more confident.
Not everyone wants to go undergo surgery to restore their youthful complexion, especially when doing so can result in scars, marks and other complications. Along with bandages and disruptions to your daily life, face lifts and similar surgical options can be less than appealing. Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery and its associated risks. At Elite Aesthetics, we are advocates for the use and development of non-surgical aesthetics procedures to give our clients beautiful results without any of the risks of general surgery. Simply involving a small injection into any wrinkles and fine lines, our wrinkle-reducing injections are a safe, painless and relaxing experience to leave you feeling revitalised and refreshed.
Because the injections work by blocking nerve signals in the muscles, which freezes them, the actions that cause wrinkles in the first place are impeded, reducing the formation of future lines and wrinkles and softening the appearance of current ones. In fact, the more treatments you have, the longer the effects will last, because the treatment addresses the underlying cause of the lines and wrinkles. This helps to slow the ageing process, maintaining your youthful beauty for as long as possible.
Many of us are unhappy with the way that we look, and this can have an affect on our self-confidence and relationships. If your looks are having an effect on the way you live your life and you want to improve your appearance, then anti-wrinkle injections can be a great confidence-booster, especially when you see the results. At Elite Aesthetics, making you feel amazing is our mission, and Dr. Shirin’s expertise means that you can see optimum results every time. With your newfound or restored beauty, you’ll have the confidence to live your life the way you want, and feel like yourself again.
Just as Botox® can be used to block nerve signals in the facial muscles, it can also be used to block the neurotransmitters that stimulate the sweat glands, reducing their water production considerably. Especially useful for those who suffer from hyperhidrosis – unpredictable and excessive sweating even when the weather is cool or the person is resting – in the armpits, feet or hands. This treatment can lessen the volume of sweat produced, which ensures you and your clothes stay fresher for longer.
If you show a lot of gum when you smile, then you may have what is known as a ‘gummy smile’. Caused by a hyperactive muscle near the upper lip, an overgrowth of the upper jaw or teeth that are small in comparison to the gums due to genetics, a gummy smile can leave many feeling self-conscious. Botox® can be injected in the area, paralysing the muscle and reducing its effect when you smile, so that you only show a beautiful grin.
Anti-wrinkle injections usually last from around three to six months, though this will vary from person to person. Repeated treatments will increase the amount of time needed between treatments as the muscles become used to the effects of treatment.
Anti-wrinkle injection treatments can be carried out as many times as you like, and repeated treatments will actually ‘train’ the skin, not just to remove any existing fine lines and wrinkles, but also to prevent new lines from appearing. We generally recommend treatments between every three to six months, depending on how quickly your body breaks down the active ingredient in botox, which varies between every patient. We also offer complimentary top-up treatments two weeks after your first treatment to ensure your results are exactly right and that you’re getting the perfect treatment that gives you the confidence boost you need to feel amazing in your own skin.
Anti-wrinkle injections are an injectable treatment so there is some discomfort during treatment for many people. At Elite Aesthetics we use numbing cream if required to reduce pain and ensure you have the most comfortable treatment possible. Dr. Shirin is a highly trained and qualified medical doctor with extensive experience in injection techniques. During her time working in the NHS, Dr. Shirin trained as an anaesthetist, where she became incredibly skilled in a variety of injection techniques, so she has a deep understanding of how to carry out injectable treatments effectively and comfortably.
Botox treatments work by freezing the facial muscles at the injection site, which is why the loss of facial movement is a common concern for many people considering the treatment.
At Elite Aesthetics, we are passionate about creating amazing results that exceed your expectations and make a real difference to your everyday life, but aren’t obvious to anyone except you. Our practice leader, Dr. Shirin Lakhani, carries out all of our botox treatments, and with her expertise in injection techniques, you can feel confident that you’re in some of the nation’s best hands. Dr. Shirin also has a postgraduate certificate in aesthetics and a passion for creating incredible results that are imperceptible to others, but give you the confidence you need to feel your best in every aspect of your life.
At Elite Aesthetics, your comfort, safety and happiness are all of paramount importance to us. We precede every treatment with a full consultation process to allow us to get to know you and your goals, as well as go through your treatment options. We pride ourselves on our highly ethical approach to aesthetics procedures, and will always recommend the most medically appropriate course of action, as determined by our practice leader, Dr. Shirin Lakhani. Dr. Shirin will ask you about your medical history, any health conditions, prior surgeries or medications, to ensure that your procedure will be safe and that the treatment won’t interfere with your general health.
The consultation process is also a chance for you to get to know us, see our state of the art clinic in Greenhithe, Kent, ask any questions and alleviate any of your concerns. During your consultation, you will get to know Dr. Shirin and see how her experience and approach to aesthetics treatments results in a safe, comfortable procedure with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Dr. Shirin is a true industry leader, and is regarded as one of the best aesthetic doctors in the country by the press and her peers. She worked as an NHS doctor from 1999 until 2013 when she founded Elite Aesthetics, and during this time gained extensive experience in anaesthetics, general surgery, gynaecology and urology. She also spent several years working as a GP and has been awarded multiple postgraduate diplomas.
Due to our values as a clinic and Dr. Shirin’s training and medical ethics, Elite Aesthetics are committed to never over treating any of our patients. If a patient were to request a procedure during their consultation that Dr. Shirin feels would not be the most beneficial course of action, we would not carry this out, and would instead work closely with them to create a more medically appropriate treatment plan.
During your Botox® or Azzalure® procedure, Dr. Shirin will communicate with you to get the results you want. Typically, your procedure will take around 40 minutes from start to finish. Dr. Shirin will mark the areas to be treated and then using a tiny needle will inject directly into the muscles. This is not painful, but some patients may experience slight discomfort, and a numbing cream can be applied beforehand if you feel it is required. The amount of Botox® or Azzalure® used will have been agreed during the consultation period.
After your procedure, you should avoid lying down for the first few hours, and not touch the treated areas or partake in strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. There is no downtime after an anti-wrinkle procedure, and you can get back to your day right away. The results of your treatment will improve gradually over the next 7-10 days, and will last for 3 – 6 months, after which time we recommend another treatment to maintain your results.
At Elite Aesthetics, we are dedicated to achieving beautiful, natural results whilst keeping patient safety at the forefront of the business. Our practice founder and industry leader, Dr. Shirin Lakhani, is committed to ethical aesthetic practice, always putting the welfare of the client first. Never over treating any patient is a commitment we firmly uphold, and we pride ourselves in finding the best solutions, tailored to each individual client. One size does not fit all, so it’s an integral part of our process to examine the most medically appropriate course of action for each and every patient. We are then able to provide a variety of treatment options that are right for you.

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Charlotte was so friendly and helpful.
