Face shaping using dermal fillers

Where once, invasive surgery was the only option to sculpt or enhance the facial features, dermal fillers now offer a myriad of solutions for anti-ageing and augmentation. From her clinics in South Woodford, Hatfield and Bishops Stortford, Dr Anita Dhunna offers face shaping procedures using FDA approved dermal fillers, for safe and effective treatments with lasting, natural-looking results.

When used in facial shaping, dermal fillers are generally used in the cheeks, jawline and chin; as these tend to be the main areas where the ageing process becomes apparent. The loss of facial tissues such as fat, as well as bone mass reduction leads to facial concerns such as sagging cheeks, a weaker jawline and jowls. If you notice you have a naturally weak chin protrusion, these issues can further exacerbate this problem and affect the entire facial profile. Injecting FDA approved hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers, using needles or cannulas in to these areas, not only helps to plump the facial tissues and hydrate the skin, but physically lifts and augments areas which are dropping or sagging, offering in many cases, a full face-lifting effect. These results can commonly be likened to the results achieved from more invasive, surgical measures, but unlike surgery, dermal filler treatments don’t involve a general anaesthetic, a hospital stay, sutures and stitches, lengthy downtime and the complications that are associated with extreme measures for facelifting and shaping.

A dermal filler face shaping treatment can be completed within an hour, the side-effects are minimal and mostly cosmetic (some potential swelling, slight bruising and perhaps tenderness in the treated areas). The results can be seen straight away but the consideration of post-procedure swelling has to be taken into account and allowed to subside, in order to experience the final results, which can include more prominent cheeks, lifting lower cheek pads, a sculpted jawline with less sagging and a more pronounced chin, leading to a stronger and pronounced facial profile and in many cases, tighter and more lifted neck tissues. These results all contribute to a more youthful appearance and sculpted face shape, disguising those tell-tale signs of ageing, for up to 12 months at a time.
