Lip Fillers – Over time, our lips gradually lose volume, become smaller and can develop fine lines around their borders. The cupids bow can become flattened and the corners of the mouth may turn downward, creating a tired, aged appearance. As fuller lips become an increasingly desirable feature, more people are turning to non-surgical lip enhancements, or lip fillers, to get the perfect pout. At Elite Aesthetics, our lip enhancements are carried out by Dr. Shirin Lakhani, a highly experienced aesthetic doctor, dedicated to getting beautiful, subtle and natural looking results for her clients.
Lip fillers can help to enhance thin lips, create a more defined lip border and add fullness and balance. At Elite Aesthetics, we offer lip filler treatments from our doctor-led clinic to clients in Bexley, Bexleyheath, Greenhithe, Tunbridge Wells, West Malling, Gravesend, Bromley and Maidstone.
Lip fillers are usually made up of gel substances containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body that helps maintain hydration in the skin by attracting up to 1000 times its own weight in water. At Elite Aesthetics, hyaluronic fillers are our lip fillers of choice as they are biodegradable, malleable and the safest form of dermal filler for lips on the market. Hyaluronic acid levels in the body are balanced by an enzyme known as hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules. This is also the substance that breaks down lip fillers over time, meaning that while repeated treatments are required, it is the least disruptive form of filler, as the body is already equipped to work with the main ingredients.
There are a wide variety of hyaluronic fillers available to aesthetic practitioners, and at Elite Aesthetics, we always carefully choose fillers that we think will offer our clients the best possible results. We use high-quality Teosyal, Restylane and Juvederm Vycross for lip filler treatments, each with their own advantages and specialisms.
Teoxane’s range of Teosyal fillers are designed specifically to be flexible and long-lasting in the most mobile areas of the face, including the lips, as well as around the nose and cheeks. Restylane is a market leading products, with a 90% approval rating on realself.com, making it one of the most popular brands of filler available. Juvederm Vycross is Juvederm’s premium range of fillers, which uses a revolutionary combination of high and low-weight hyaluronic acid, resulting in a smoother, more natural looking gel that is easier and less painful to inject. All of our fillers also come with a local anaesthetic built into the filler formula for a more comfortable treatment experience
Hyaluronic lip fillers last between six and eighteen months, but this varies from person to person, depending on the rate of hyaluronic breakdown and how active their natural hyaluronidase is. After this time, the lips will revert back to their state pre-treatment. Repeated treatments can be carried out on a regular basis to maintain optimum results.

At Elite Aesthetics, we tailor your treatment to you so no matter what your concerns are, our experienced practitioner will help to alleviate them, leaving you with full, even, beautiful lips.
As we age, collagen production in the body naturally slows down. Collagen is the substance in our skin that provides elasticity and promotes the appearance of youthful, glowing skin. This slowing of collagen production leads to a loss of elasticity in the skin, and an increase in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a sagging or drooping appearance to the skin. This can make people look tired or aged, which for many of our clients at Elite Aesthetics, doesn’t reflect how they feel on the inside. The effects of a lack of collagen also extend to the skin on and around the lips, leading to the appearance of so-called smokers lines, marionette lines and a downturning in the corners of the mouth. All of these things can make you feel insecure about your appearance. Lip fillers help to lift, boost and smooth skin in the areas they are injected, improving the appearance of these issues, and giving a more youthful appearance.
Plump, full lips can help make you look younger, healthier and brighter. Lip fillers can also fix asymmetry within the lips, something many of us struggle with. Insecurity about the size or shape of your lips can make you feel less confident, which affects every part of your life. At Elite Aesthetics, we know that lip fillers are an art as well as a science, and Dr. Shirin will work closely with you to make sure your lips are perfect for you. With extensive medical training and a deep understanding of facial structure and physiology, Dr. Shirin is passionate about making sure that you leave the clinic with the results you have dreamed of, feeling beautiful and more confident.
Before any of our treatments, you’ll have a full consultation with Dr. Shirin, our medical director and practice leader, to establish what it is you want from your treatment and how we can help you feel your most confident. On the day of your treatment, you’ll be offered a topical numbing cream to improve your comfort throughout the treatment. This usually takes around 20 minutes to become fully active and we can start the filler treatment. The injection process itself usually takes less than half an hour, and sometimes as little as 15 minutes. You should expect some light swelling for around 24 hours, after which you’ll be able to see optimum results.
Because the lips are one of the most mobile areas of the face, dermal filler in this area is likely to break down a little quicker than in other areas. However, they still regularly last for 6 months, and can last for up to 18 months in certain people.
A common concern for many people undergoing lip filler treatment is that they will end up with lips that look overfilled and don’t match the rest of their face. At Elite Aesthetics, Dr. Shirin and the team believe fully in simply enhancing your beauty rather than changing your features entirely. Her extensive experience in facial anatomy and aesthetics means that you can feel confident you’ll leave the clinic looking and feeling like yourself, just slightly enhanced. You won’t have your facial balance or symmetry interrupted, you’ll simply feel better about any insecurities around you lips with the beautiful pout you’ve dreamed of, and no one else has to know unless you want them to.
Lip fillers are safe provided that they are injected by a medical professional. Always seek a doctor who is GMC registered, CQC registered and also a member of Save Face.

Face and lip fillers (dermal fillers) are substances injected into your face. They fill lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas such as your lips or cheeks.
Before our lip filler treatments we carry out a full consultation between our patients and Dr. Shirin Lakhani, our medical director, who carries out all of our lip enhancement treatments. Dr. Shirin will talk to you about your goals and what it is you want to achieve from your treatment, as well as making sure you’re suitable for lip enhancement treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Shirin will talk you through the process, as well as collaborate with you to find a treatment plan that works for you, including the volume and types of filler that are right for you. At Elite Aesthetics, our fillers of choice are all market-leading hyaluronic fillers. We use Teosyal, Restylane or Juvederm Vycross fillers, or a combination of fillers to get the perfect results for you. Dr. Shirin has an in-depth knowledge of the different properties, advantages and disadvantages of each of the filler brands we stock, and so is able to accurately tailor your treatment to you specifically, making sure that when you leave the clinic after your treatment, it will be with the results you’ve always wanted.
The extensive consultation also gives you a chance to get to know Dr. Shirin and the staff at Elite Aesthetics, see our purpose-built clinic in peaceful Greenhithe, Kent. Above all, we want all of our clients to feel safe and comfortable during treatment with us, and to ensure that you’re happy with us as your aesthetic practitioner.
Before your treatment you should avoid blood thinners like aspirin and other anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen or aleve, fish oil, multivitamins or vitamin E for at least a day beforehand, as they can increase the appearance of bruising after treatment.
During your treatment, Dr. Shirin can apply a numbing cream to improve your comfort if required. She will mark the areas to be treated and then inject the filler using a tiny needle. This can cause some mild discomfort and slight smarting, but most people don’t find it particularly painful. Dr. Shirin will pause regularly and check with you to make sure you’re getting the results you want. The entire treatment process usually takes under 30 minutes, and has no downtime, so you can get back to your day straight after treatment.
After treatment, you may experience mild swelling or bruising, although this usually goes down within a few days, leaving you with plump, youthful and beautiful-looking lips. You should try and avoid touching the lips & intense exercise for 24 hours after treatment to make sure the filler isn’t displaced, as well as avoiding very hot or cold drinks and alcohol to reduce bruising and swelling and protect the lips. The amount of time the filler takes to break down varies from person to person depending on the volume, type and location of filler injected, as well as the natural levels of hyaluronidase in the body. Generally lip fillers will last for around six months, though optimum results can vary from around three to eighteen months.
