As we get older, this structural support under our skin gets weaker. There is a loss of the healthy fat under the skin and it sags downwards to create unwanted bulges and lines (“folds”). These changes in the face are often obvious but other treatable areas such as the neck and hands are often a tell tale sign of this.
Dermal fillers are used to replace this lost volume back under the skin to redefine important structures and reduce unwanted wrinkles and folds. This process requires great skill and planning, something which we pride ourselves on.
Friendliest hygienist I've come across! Both Alicja and Clair were professional and friendly. I was given good advise on how to look after my teeth and shown exactly how to brush behind teeth to get to my problem areas. Would definitely recommend.
The team here were wonderful. From the swiftness of the appointment to the professional and caring dentists it is a 5 star practice. I am a relatively nervous patient but they put me at ease straight away.
Everyone at this practice is fantastic. Have been several times over the past few months for a range of treatments with Dr Patel from a filling to hygienist cleaning with Alicija, whitening, and composite bonding. They are so professional, informative, and all truly excellent at what they do. Better than any dental practice I have been to in London, hands down. I've never had such perfect looking teeth!
We only use high quality fillers containing hyaluronic acid; this is a key natural component already in our skin, which decreases as we age.
The effects can be seen almost immediately. A follow up appointment will be kept to ensure that treatment has been successful.
There is no downtime on the day and you can go home or even back to work after treatment. There may some swelling after the procedure but this is temporary and we will give you advice on how to minimise this.
Before your treatment, we will use techniques to temporarily numb the skin where you will have your treatments. This can include the lips. We keep our patients comfortable and these procedures are tolerated well.
