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.
I saw Dr Meriam Khawam for replacement of missing filling of one of my molars. Her administration of the local anaesthetic and the rest of the work was outstanding. She did not forget to examine and give me advice on my gum health which so many dentists overlook. Overall my experience was very positive.
I visited Dr Ankit Patel for ongoing issues with my sensitive teeth. I was extremely nervous and worried as I don’t visit the dentist often, but Dr Patel ensured I was comfortable throughout and explained the treatment in detail which put me at ease. Overall great service and really friendly staff.
First consultation went beyond all my expectations. Dr Meriam was not only pleasant but extremely professional and had answers and advice for all my points of discussion. No treatment done on this date but an overall assessment and I left the practice feeling I was in good hands.
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.
