If you live in Brookman’s Park, you’ll know that it’s a lovely little village based minutes from Colney Health, Hatfield, Cuffley, Little Berkhamsted and Potter’s Bar. If you have an eye for facial beauty and are discerning about who you visit for your aesthetic treatments, you’ll know that Dr Anita Dhunna offers a clinic at Beauty In The Park, a pretty clinic which is easily accessible from the M25, A1 and is located a short, 10 minute drive from Goff’s Oak, St Albans, Welwyn Garden City, Hertford, Elstree and Borehamwood and is a 20 minute drive from Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead, Harpenden and Hitchin. You may also be aware that Dr Anita Dhunna, one of the UK’s most experienced and revered medical aestheticians offers dermal fillers and Botox® injections for ultimate facial beautification, so you can look your very best, without having to go under a general anaesthetic or experiencing the surgeon’s knife.
Dermal fillers are a wonder, when you consider the ageing concerns and facial asymmetries that they can treat. From plumping, volumising and enhancing the lips to lifting the cheeks, filling the temples, sculpting the jawline and correcting nasal abnormalities and imperfections, dermal fillers come in a range of viscosities and offer thirst quenching properties for your skin. Comprised of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), dermal fillers not only act as a scaffold, supporting the skin tissues, but the HA within the filler holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water, sucking it in like a sponge and then slowly releasing it in to the skin, for a smoother texture and revitalised glow. Both men and women flock to Dr Anita Dhunna’s clinic to enhance their features but to maintain a natural appearance. This is due to the extensive work which Dr Anita Dhunna has undertaken in her career to perfect her skills, so that the subtlest of changes offers significant results. No two faces are the same and Dr Anita Dhunna has an artistic eye, as well as medical training to offer balance, harmony and facial sympathies, so that you won’t look over ‘done’ or ‘puffy’. The results can be seen immediately but you will need to take in to account that some swelling, bruising and tenderness may occur, following your treatment and you will need to take some simple aftercare steps in order to protect your skin as well as minimise these mild side-effects. These include avoiding heat stimulation, such as hot baths, saunas or steam rooms, as well as excessive exercise. You may also wish to have an ice pack to hand, to reduce any swelling and minimise the risk of further bruising. Avoiding alcohol the nights before and after treatment is also suggested, as alcohol is a vasodilator and can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising. Caffeine can also have the same effect, so we suggest herbal tea or decaf, the day of your treatment.
Dermal fillers are superb for filling static lines and wrinkles (those wrinkles which remain on your face when it is in a neutral expression), but what about expression lines and dynamic wrinkles?
This is where Botox® is the hero! Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a neurotoxin or protein which temporarily relaxes the facial muscles responsible for expression lines and wrinkles, but don’t panic, you won’t be left looking permanently surprised or not being able to form expressions, the substance works in a subtle way (when injected expertly by a medical professional such as Dr Anita Dhunna) so that lines such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, Glabellar lines (the lines which run vertically between your eyebrows) and bunny lines (the lines at each side of your nose) can be smoothed and relaxed, leaving you with a more youthful and wide-awake appearance. Botox® can also be used to lift the brows, to correct a cobbled look in the chin and to smooth the jawline and the neck, as well as under the arms, palms and feet to treat excess sweating (hyperhidrosis). Results can be seen in as little as 24 to 48 hours, but expect to wait around two weeks for the optimum outcome. As with any cosmetic treatment, how you respond by means of the longevity of your results really depends on your own physiology and how your body responds to the treatment. If you look after your skin, avoid smoking and excessive sun exposure, you may be able to enjoy the results of your Botox® treatment for up to 4-5 months. Some patients have even been able to see results for longer after the procedure. Teamed with dermal fillers, Botox® can be used as a combination treatment for a full face lifting effect, without resorting to surgical measures!
Before any treatment can commence with Dr Anita Dhunna at Beauty In The Park, here in Brookman’s Park, we will ask that you attend a pre-treatment consultation and facial analysis, so that the doctor can really get to know you, what bothers you about your facial features and the best course of treatment for the most significant results. She will check your medical history, to ensure that any procedure you undergo will be safe and effective for you and will create a bespoke treatment plan, tailored to your specific requirements as well as your budget.
Dermal fillers and Botox® can offer astounding results and the treatment itself can take as little as 10 minutes! With Dr Anita Dhunna’s skills and expertise, you know you are in the safest of hands and can achieve your goals in a matter of minutes!
