With the new year well underway and another Christmas season behind us, we may be looking to 2024 as a year of renewal. Not only may we have some new year resolutions to maybe eat better, maintain a regular exercise regime and perhaps take that once-in-a-lifetime holiday, but we may be turning our attention to our facial appearance, and how we may refresh and renew it with cosmetic treatments, but without looking ‘over-done’. From her clinics in South Woodford, Hatfield and Bishops Stortford, Dr Anita Dhunna offers mini new year ‘tweakments’ using injectable dermal fillers and Botox® wrinkle-smoothing toxin, for those patients who are seeking to revitalise their looks but maintain a completely natural, soft and flattering appearance.
Dermal fillers are extremely versatile, and these gel like substances containing Hyaluronic Acid can help to re-shape and re-structure the facial features as well as replenish lost hydration. When expertly injected into the cheeks, they can help to accentuate the zygomatic arches and create a lifting effect to the lower face. They can even smooth and reduce nasolabial folds, as they create a scaffold effect to the lower facial regions. When used in the tear trough (under eye) area, dermal fillers can help to reduce and disguise dark circles, fill under eye bag crevices and lighten and refresh this area. When used in the chin, the shape of the lower face and jawline can be dramatically improved and sculpted, offering a more pleasing overall shape (heart or oval) but sharpening the chin and creating a more prominent and balanced facial projection.
Botox® is arguably the most well-known cosmetic injectable treatment on the market and has been used in cosmetic medicine since the 1970s, when it was discovered to smooth expression lines and wrinkles of patients having treatment for facial spasms. Botox® is the brand name for a form of Botulinum Toxin Type A (there are several brands on the market, but Botox® is Dr Anita’s preferred product of choice in most cases). Botox® injections are used to smooth lines and wrinkles that have been caused by facial expressions and movement. But they can also be used to help to lift the facial features further, following a ‘tweakment’ using dermal fillers. Botox® can lift the eyebrows, the sides of the eyes and even upturn the sides of the mouth. Botox® can also be used to correct a ‘gummy’ smile, further improving the oral area, perhaps after a lip augmentation using dermal fillers. Botox can also be used to help slim the lower face when injected into the muscles of the jaw which can also result in alleviation for those who are grinders and suffer from bruxism. For younger patients, Dr Anita Dhunna can administer ‘Baby Botox®’ where more superficial injections are made, using less product than a standard Botox® procedure, thus ensuring the patient does not look un-natural for her age.
Botox® and Dermal fillers could be your answer to looking more youthful and refreshed in 2024, so why not begin your journey of discovery in to non-surgical aesthetic enhancement, with a no obligation consultation and facial analysis with Dr Anita Dhunna.
