Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers are gels which are injected into the skin with a very fine needle to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. They are injected into different levels of the skin (the dermis) restoring lost volume thereby correcting folds and creases. This treatment is simple and straightforward and offers immediate results. Dermal fillers can also be used for lip enhancement and facial contouring, such as cheek and chin enhancements and are particularly good at improving the nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) as well as restoring the contours of the corners of the mouth (marionette lines).




 
  
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
The safest Dermal fillers on the market comprise of Hyaluronic Acid. This is a natural product, already present in the skin, which binds water to hydrate the skin, giving it volume and suppleness. It also promotes growth of collagen, which acts as a support for the skin. Hyaluronic Acid decreases with age and so the skin loses volume and supportive collagen leading it to sag and fold.
Unlike Permanent Fillers which can cause problems, Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are temporary and can be reversed if needed by using the natural enzyme Hyalase
  
Juvederm Ultra-The Natural Look
There are many Dermal Fillers available on the UK market. Many have not gone through appropriate tests and can cause variable results.
Dr Dan Dhunna prides himself on safety and providing a natural, soft look for his patients. For this reason he uses the "Juvederm Ultra®" range of Dermal fillers from Allergan, the makers of BOTOX®. Compared to other products such as Restylane® which are particle based and could cause more lumps and uneven results, Juvederm Ultra® products are blended gels of Hyaluronic Acid which are easier to inject through even smaller needles, making it more comfortable for the patient. They have superior results lasting upto 12 months and are FDA approved in the USA. Juvederm Ultra® is the first Hyaluronic Acid Filler which has built in lidocaine anaesthetic, making the experience even more comfortable. After this the product is naturally broken down by the body.
