Dermal fillers are amazing substances. They can lift and sculpt the facial features, restore facial contours, plump the skin, fill hollows and hydrate the skin cells for a youthful and rejuvenated glow. However, in the wrong hands and not performed by a fully qualified medical practitioner with an intensive knowledge of the facial anatomy, this treatment has been known to make someone look ‘fake’ and actually – older!
Fortunately, Dr Anita Dhunna is a master of the art of dermal fillers for partial or indeed, total face rejuvenation and has many years of experience in perfecting natural-looking, stunning results for her many patients across London and the southeast.
Dr Anita’s explains, “fillers don’t need to look fake and the majority of people think that their dermal filler treatment might end up making them look puffy, swollen or just not like themselves. However, I explain that I only use FDA-approved dermal fillers which are then chosen according to the correct thickness required for the patient and then they are to be injected into the right areas of the face at a particular depth. This is never the same with each patient and this all equates to a natural-looking face that is more youthful, refreshed and hydrated”.
So, how do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers replicate hyaluronic acid (HA) within the body. This substance is responsible for the cushioning and hydration of various physical areas, such as the joints, eyes, connective tissues, and skin. As the HA contained in FDA approved dermal fillers such as the Juvéderm range by Allergan, replicates our own substances, the chance of any side-effects or allergies is rare. Dermal fillers physically augment the skin as well as providing intense hydration over time, so you’re receiving a treatment that offers instant results as well as longer-term benefits.
Some of the many results achieved using dermal fillers include…
• Full or partial face lifting
• Temple hollow volumisation
• Cheek enhancement
• Lip augmentation
• Non-surgical nose job (rhinoplasty)
• Chin enhancement
• Jawline contouring
• Nose to mouth lines reduced
• Marionette lines reduced
• Neck lifting
• Eyebrow lifting
• Hand rejuvenation
Am I suitable for dermal fillers with Dr Anita Dhunna?
Before any injectable treatment can be performed, it’s essential to consult with Dr Anita Dhunna at either Harley Street, South Woodford or Brookman’s Park. This meeting will allow you to ask all the questions you have about your treatment and discuss the treatment at length with Dr Anita Dhunna, and for the doctor to examine your facial contours and check your medical history.
What happens during a dermal filler treatment?
Prior to the treatment, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly. A numbing ointment may be applied, depending on the areas to be treated. However, in many cases, numbing cream is not needed as the FDA approved fillers that Dr Anita uses contain Lidocaine, an injectable anaesthetic.
Small quantities of the dermal filler will be injected, either using a needle or a cannula (a blunt-ended needle which helps to minimise bruising).
You’ll see the initial results immediately, but be aware that there may be some bruising, swelling and slight tenderness after your procedure, and the full results will most likely be seen at around week 2, following your treatment.
How long will my dermal filler results last?
This is the question we are asked most, here at Dr Anita Dhunna’s clinics, and the truth is that it really depends on the areas you have had treated and your metabolism of the product.
If treatment areas include more passive features, such as the cheeks or temples, the results will last far longer than more dynamic areas such as the lips. Your expected results will be discussed at length in your initial consultation with Dr Anita Dhunna. However, it’s worth noting that the dermal fillers she uses are famed for their longevity and safety profiles which can last up to 2 years.
Dermal fillers can offer you a fresher, more revitalised facial appearance and administered expertly, will take years off your facial appearance and overall just a refreshed version of yourself. With Dr Anita Dhunna’s expertise, attention to detail and artistic eye, you can be confident that your results will revive your confidence and help you to look and feel fabulous, for many years to come!
