Achieving facial symmetry with dermal fillers – Dr Anita Dhunna
As we age, our facial anatomy goes through many changes – from bone and soft tissue loss to skin sagging, dehydration and drooping. Facial ageing is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be suffered and can be slowed down. Dermal fillers have been used for facial augmentation since the 1960s (when the first silicone fillers were developed) and have evolved drastically as one of the most popular, proven and safe anti-ageing injectable treatments on the planet! From her clinics in Essex and London, Dr Anita Dhunna performs thousands of dermal filler treatments to improve the effects of facial ageing as well as create symmetry of the face, something which is synonymous with aesthetic beauty.
Dermal fillers are made up of a gel-like substance and hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar which can be found protecting the eyes, joints, connective tissues and the skin. As we age, the HA within our bodies depletes and this is linked to the reduction in production of collagen and elastin, two more skin-saving elements which give the skin its youthful bounce and glow. Replacing lost HA in a viscous injectable gel can not only replenish the skin, but can craft the facial features, lift the skin and bring back volume to areas that are hollowing and losing support.
Dermal fillers should only be administered by a qualified medical professional such as a doctor or dentist, so that safety is upheld and superlative results are achieved. Treating each individual is key, as everyone’s face is unique. This is something that Dr Anita Dhunna does with flair. Her precision when placing dermal fillers in to specific areas in the exact quantities required means the difference between an ‘ok’ dermal filler treatment and an exquisite result. Dermal filler procedures do not require a ‘one size fits all’ approach, but needs the keen eye of a facial artist, as well as the medical background and experience required, to ensure that no unforeseen complications escalate to dangerous proportions. To achieve facial symmetry, you may need 1ml of filler on one side of your face and 0.5ml on the other, so taking this in to account when thinking about the cost of your dermal filler treatment is vital. Just because your friend required 2mls over all in their dermal filler treatment with Dr Anita Dhunna, doesn’t mean you will.
There are far too many non-medical practitioners treating with dermal fillers who have no clue on how to manage a complication, allergic reaction (although rare) or to dissolve the filler if it enters a blood vessel; something that can have disastrous consequences. A medical professional has extensive knowledge of the facial anatomy as well as a ‘recovery’ plan if anything were to happen (for example if a patient were to faint or have a panic attack – again, rare, but it can happen). This knowledge means that in a pre-treatment consultation, any potential medical issues will be discussed with you (medical history), along with any medications you are taking and if you have a nervous disposition when it comes to needles.
Dr Anita Dhunna will make thorough medical checks, way before your dermal filler treatment, to ensure your absolute safety and suitability for the procedure.
Dr Anita Dhunna also insists on using the most prestigious, tested and proven dermal filler products on the market and only sources from reputable UK pharmaceutical distributors. Those who refuse supplying non-medics these products. The products she uses, such as the Vycross range of Juvederm by Allergan are pure in quality, have been proven to be the longest lasting and obtain the most pleasing, natural and beautiful results when it comes to achieving facial beautification and symmetry with dermal fillers.
Achieving a natural-looking result is something that Dr Anita Dhunna swears by and “less is more” is definitely her mantra. Using a ‘whisper’ of product and placing it exactly where needed can make such a difference and this is testament to her many years in facial rejuvenation using injectable substances. She does not approve of the cat look, or the fish pout and would rather take her time to explain why this look can actually add years on to a patient’s appearance as opposed to giving them a more youthful, fresh and awake look.
Achieving facial symmetry and rejuvenation using dermal fillers takes years of medical education, specific sector training, an artistic eye and an empathic attitude. Beauty is not only how you look on the outside, but how it makes you feel on the inside and it is Dr Anita Dhunna’s duty of care to all her patients, to offer them excellence both in the results she achieves and the safety and integrity she upholds.
