As we begin to age, the skin loses its tone and natural vitality. It literally starts to fall, making the facial features seem squarer, where once they were heart shaped. Skin sags, wrinkles appear, lines form and jowls make an entrance. How delighted we are when the curtains open on ageing. A performance that none of us would like to be the star of.
The lower face can be one of the most prevalent areas to show the signs that we aren’t as young as we used to be. A turkey neck, a weak jawline and jowls can form and we may start to look to more than just fancy creams and lotions to help us to restore a more youthful facial appearance as well as plumper, healthier skin.
Dr Dan Dhunna is one of the world’s leading cosmetic doctors and specialises in restructuring the skin’s architecture so that you can reveal your truest youth and beauty once more. For the lower facial areas, he uses a combination of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Botox and PDO threads, for superlative, lasting results.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), suspended in a gel-textured matrix which can vary in fluidity. HA is found naturally as a restorative sugar within the body. It is found in the joints, connective tissues, the eyes and the skin. HA can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and is therefore a superb hydrator for the skin. When expertly and artistically injected in a gel with high viscosity (thickness), HA fillers such as Juvaderm Voluma and Juvaderm Volift, commonly used by Dr Dan Dhunna, can significantly restore volume, structure and support for the skin and underlying tissues.
Polydioxannone (PDO) threads are inserted under the skin to tighten loose tissue, lift the structure of the skin and over time, stimulate collagen production within the lower facial area. Using PDO threads to contour the lower face, chin and jawline is a particular-favourite of Dr Dan Dhunna’s loyal clients as these stunning results can last up to 2 years. PDO threads can be used in conjunction with both dermal fillers and the addition of Botox® (which can be used in the masseter muscles of the face to slim a disproportionately wide jaw) to cosmetically enhance, re-shape and rejuvenate the lower face so that the facial features become more synonymous with youth, health and vitality. Skin can look tighter, toned and with a healthy glow. Jowls can be smoothed and lifted and sagging neck lines restructured.
Lower face contouring is one of the most popular treatments that Dr Dan Dhunna administers as part of his famous London Lift® procedure and many high-profile models, TV stars and famous actors swear by his supremely honed skills to maintain and enhance their facial features to absolute perfection. No one leaves Dr. Dan Dhunna’s clinic unsatisfied.
Ageing doesn’t have to be thought of an inevitable affliction and you can age gracefully but beautifully by putting your trust in Dr Dan Dhunna’s skills as a highly-trained and fully-qualified medical artist; to re-enhance your complexion and re-sculpt your features to their fullest potential.
