The application of lip fillers is a popular treatment that is commonly used to augment the lips, creating a fuller and firmer appearance.
This injectable treatment uses a specially formulated dermal filler, containing hyaluronic acid, that is suitable for supporting the delicate structure of the lips. A very fine needle is used to administer the smooth gel at the appropriate points on and around the mouth in order to restore volume and hydration.
By plumping up the lips, a smoother and more even texture can be created, that can also help to improve the shape of the mouth.
Lip fillers are typically requested by those who feel their lips are thinner than they would like them to be, whether it’s down to genetics or the effects of ageing. Some people naturally possess smaller lips or asymmetric lips, which can affect the overall balanced appearance of the facial features.
When ageing is the contributing factor, thin lips are usually the result of lost collagen and hyaluronic acid – the naturally found substances that help to maintain volume to the lips. Ageing also affects the skin’s appearance by causing the development of lines and wrinkles, which can appear both on and around the mouth.
The application of lip fillers replaces the lost volume which helps to smooth the appearance of any wrinkles – commonly referred to as ‘lip lines’, ‘smokers’ lines’ or ‘lipstick lines’.

Frequently asked questions
Am I Suitable For Lip Fillers?
Dr. Shaan will conduct a pre-treatment consultation that assesses your concerns and discusses your expected outcomes. Dr. Shaan will typically perform this treatment to lips that are lacking in volume, are asymmetric in appearance and / or have noticeable lines and wrinkles on and around the mouth. You will need to share your medical history with Dr. Shaan so he can eliminate any heightened risk of developing serious complications or effects to your general health.
Are Lip Fillers Safe?
Dr. Shaan uses the most effective and reputable brands of dermal fillers on the aesthetic market. These products have medical approval and are trusted by Dr. Shaan to produce the desired results that both he and his patients expect. As an experienced injector, Dr. Shaan uses the application techniques that are within the interests of his patients, in terms of safety and patient welfare.
Are Lip Fillers Painful?
The application of lip fillers can result in some degree of discomfort as the lips are a feature that is delicate and sensitive in nature. Dr. Shaan administers lip fillers with care and precision to minimise any pain or uncomfortable feelings. Dr. Shaan offers the use of a numbing cream to be applied to the treatment area prior to the procedure, in order to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
Are There Any Side Effects Or Risks?
Swelling to the lips immediately following treatment is to be expected, this may take several hours to ease and should be taken into account when considering the final outcome of the procedure. The lips may look slightly bruised for a few days, which can be covered using make-up when the initial sensitivity has settled. Other uncommon and rare complications will be discussed during your pre-treatment consultation.
What Downtime Can I Expect?
As the lips are more sensitive than other parts of the face, the effects of the treatment will generally take a little longer to settle. Swelling and tenderness could take up to 24 hours to feel more comfortable. Although this should not inhibit your ability to undertake usual daily tasks, it may cause some tenderness when eating and talking. Ho

What our patients say...
Shaan developed a personalised medical grade skincare routine for me to deal with my recently developed acne. It’s only been 3 days and I’ve already noticed a big difference using ZO products. I highly recommend Aatma Aesthetics for a seamless, professional and bespoke experience.
Dr Shaan didn’t rush and not only took his time to explain what and how certain results could be achieved but also strived to delivered a lip’s shape that it was just perfect. He is highly skilled and even treated an area on my lips that I wasn’t even aware it could be performed and it completely changed the general look of my lips.
Dr. Shaan at Aatma Aesthetics did a great job of my Profhilo. It’s important to get the Profhilo into the right depth in the skin or it’s just wasted. I can see the results already and my fine lines are reduced. Good to find a great Dr. who knows what he’s doing.
If I could give another star I would!
If you are looking for a professional service and to have peace of mind when you do your treatment this is definitely the place. Dr. Shaan was super attentive and explained everything in detail. We will definitely be coming back and I already recommended to some family and friends!!
Dr. Shaan Patel is a perfectionist. I had 4mls of filler to give me back my cheeks and to remove my Nasolabial folds. I also had the 2 treatments of Profhilo. Was very impressed with my cheeks and removal of nasalabial folds.
Always happy to be attended by Dr, Shaan. Extremely professional, charismatic, attentive to details, and very efficient. You know you can trust him!
My experience at Aatma Aesthetics from beginning to end was by far over 5 stars.
