Refresh your looks this Spring with injectable treatments

Springtime is always a time for new beginnings. The grass becomes green and lush, the spring flowers bloom and finally we start to see the sun emerge from the clouds and feel the warmth of its glow on our skin. At this time of renewal and awakening, we may be feeling somewhat that our skin is less than vibrant than we’d like, and that the winter has taken its toll on our appearance. To refresh and replenish our looks so that we too can feel revitalised this Spring, we may be considering wrinkle-smoothing injections such as Botox®, contouring and lifting injections such as dermal fillers, or complexion revitalisers such as skin booster injections. From her clinics in Essex, London and Hertfordshire, Dr Anita Dhunna offers a plethora of injectable treatments as well as nearly two decades of medical and artistic expertise, to help you to look and feel your very best, in time for those long-awaited warmer seasons ahead.

What is Botox®?

If you are noticing the very first dynamic wrinkles or more considerable expression lines, Botox® could be something to consider. Botox® or Botulinum Toxin Type A is a neurotoxin, which blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles which cause expression lines. Typically these lines can be seen as crow’s feet, Glabellar lines (the vertical lines which appear in between your eyebrows), forehead lines and bunny lines (the lines that run down the sides of your nose). Using Botox® in these areas helps to temporarily relax the facial muscles (don’t worry, with expert application from Dr Anita Dhunna, you will still be able to form facial expressions) and smooth those unsightly lines. Results typically last from 4 to 6 months and there is no downtime following this treatment. Some side-effects may be experienced, such as a slight headache, some very mild bruising at the injection site/s and a heavy feeling in the forehead, but these are normal and will subside in a few to 24 hours.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like, injectable substances, ranging in viscosity. They address a myriad of facial concerns, from static lines and wrinkles, sculpting and re-shaping the facial contours to offering face-lift like qualities for a non-surgical approach to anti-ageing. The fillers which Dr Anita Dhunna uses contain hyaluronic acid (HA) and Lidocaine. HA is found naturally in the body and lubricates and hydrates the skin. As we age, HA depletes quite rapidly, leaving dehydrated and sagging skin, lacking in elasticity and firmness. Replace the HA and we replenish the skin, re-build facial structure and lift the features. The additional Lidocaine acts as a pain-blocker and helps to make the treatment more comfortable, along with topical anaesthesia if required. Your results may vary in length, depending on the treatment and the thickness of the filler administered. Ask Dr Anita Dhunna at your initial consultation, how long she expects your results to last, for your particular requested treatment.

What are skin boosters?

Skin boosters are ‘new generation’ skin care for the underlying skin tissues. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, they don’t physically augment the skin, rather, they work with the skin on a cellular level to replenish lost moisture, aid cell repair and encourage the skin to heal itself from the inside. The treatment is administered in to several points of the face, after a topical anaesthetic is applied and left to work. The substance then will spread underneath the skin, offering a full-facial rejuvenating effect. Lines and wrinkles can be smoothed, the skin, lifted and the overall health and glow of the skin is improved. A course of treatment may be required for optimum results, plus top up treatments, once every 6 to 12 months.
