Facial Aesthetics

Dermal Fillers

There is a difference between the botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. The former relaxes the muscles whereas the fillers fill and plump up lines, wrinkles and grooves to make the skin look more youthful. Fillers usually consist of sterile hyaluronic acid gels made from non-animal sources. As we age the skin's natural hyaluronic acid is lost giving rise to the appearance of lines, wrinkles and folds. Injecting fillers into the skin acts to replace the hyaluronic acid that is lost with age. They are also used for lip enhancement and for shaping facial, hand and neck contours.

The injections, which only take a few minutes, are usually administered after a local anaesthetic has been applied either directly onto the skin, or incorporated into the syringe containing the filler. This serves to reduce or prevent any discomfort. The effect of the treatment is visible immediately. Depending on the area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the filler effect can last between six and 12 months (usually six months for lips). Follow-up treatments will help to maintain the plumped up look over time.

Using Dermal Fillers it is also possible to change or augment other areas of the face including

  • Lips....increasing the lip size/volume/definition
  • Noses..... smoothing out small indentations/defects
  • Chins.....increasing the prominence of the chin
  • Cheeks.... increasing cheek bone definition
  • Jaw lines.... correcting the jowels caused by ageing

Nose Augmentation

Here we undertook a painless build up of the nose to remove double humps.

  Very thorough, very good explanation, very reassuring, felt would be in very good hands. Excellent service provided on a consistent basis, very caring, friendly and professional. Good explanations, always has time, regularly checks with the patient during treatment, very calm approach, good team support. Bruce Mutch is very patient focused on an individual basis, his very reassuring and calm approach helps to relax the patient. Previously I was apprehensive about dentists generally, but not at this practice.

- Mark Galloway, 58, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleaning. Previously crowns.

 

  Now a positive experience going to the dentist rather than something to dread. Fantastic professional service from the moment you enter until you leave. You could not beat it. Reassures, comfortable, listens to and relaxes compared to the very stressful experiences with previous dentists. The relationship is based on trust – I have total confidence in the professional expertise and empathetic attitude – previously a 'nervous patient'. All staff are friendly and professional. It is clear that there is an ethos of putting the patient at ease and providing very excellent standards of care. I just wish I had found this practice earlier.

- Anne Garrihy, 53, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleanings, previously had crowns and fillings.
