Cosmetic treatments have come on in leaps and bounds over the past decade and are more popular for revitalising and rejuvenating the skin, than ever! From his Solihull and Harley Street Clinics, Dr Dan Dhunna offers a myriad of injectable treatments including Botox® (wrinkle-smoothing injections), dermal fillers and skin boosters and treats thousands of patients who want to look and feel their very best, no matter what their age. Trends in medical aesthetics are ever-evolving and where once surgical procedures to lift, tone and tighten the skin were thought of as the only options available, 2021 will be bringing more and more innovative and effective choices than ever.
As most of us are aware, Botox® or anti-wrinkle injections are still the ‘go-to’ injectable for many patients, wishing to keep dynamic wrinkles and expression lines at bay. These twice-yearly facial injections act to stop nerve signals reaching the facial muscles that cause those nuisance lines such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, Glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows) and bunny lines (the lines either side of the nose). Botox® can even slim a square-looking jaw, minimise a cobbled chin and address wrinkles around the mouth and even on the neck. The treatment takes around 10 minutes to administer and can last anything up to 6 months. It’s no wonder therefore, that Botox® will probably always remain THE most popular injectable treatment for anti-ageing now and in 2021.
The rise in popularity of dermal fillers to address a whole host of facial conditions is going nowhere but up!. This extremely versatile treatment can erase wrinkles, add volume to areas in need of plumping, can lift the skin and create a face-lifting effect and can even hydrate the skin internally and diminish eye bags! Dr Dan Dhunna only uses FDA-Approved and clinically-safe dermal fillers, most of which are manufactured by Allergan. This ensures the purity of the product and longer lasting results than if using sub-standard dermal fillers. Something which a medical professional such as Dr Dan Dhunna refuses to do. Dermal fillers have long been a firm favourite for those wishing to take back the years but without going under the knife. The possible treatment options with dermal fillers are ever- increasing with new and state-of-the-art techniques and delivery methods and with Dr Dan Dhunna in Solihull and Harley Street, London, include
- Augmenting the lips
- Cheek enhancement
- Lower face lifting
- Tear troughs (under eye bags)
- Temples (creating a more youthful face shape and lifting the eyebrows)
- Deep wrinkle fillers
- Chin augmentation
- Non-surgical nose job
- Jawline contouring
Skin boosters might seem like the ‘new kids on the block’ when it comes to injectable cosmetic treatments for the face but believe it or not, they have been around for quite some time – and they’re gaining momentum with those ‘in the know!’. These injectable skincare treatments can help to radically-improve the hydration, look and feel of the skin, as well as plump out areas in need of attention. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, skin boosters act within the skin on a cellular level, to increase moisture levels, help the production of substances such as collagen and elastin and improve the look of lines, wrinkles, eye bags, acne scars and in some cases, pigmentation. Dr Dan Dhunna uses the Restylane range of skin boosters for maximum skin hydration and revitalisation. Restylane is suitable for most ages and is clinically-proven to increase skin resilience and cellular moisturisation on the face, neck, decolletage and the hands. It can also be used for crêpey areas of the body such as the elbows and knees. Profhilo is also a wonderful treatment that is very popular. A course of treatment is usually recommended for optimum results, but many patients comment that their skin looks more hydrated and glowing after just one treatment!
Injectable cosmetic treatments are constantly evolving and will continue to innovate and in 2021 will offer more and more patients highly-effective ways to improve their looks. The continued increase in scientifically-proven remedies for the ageing process, without the need for surgical intervention will mean that non-surgical cosmetic face and body treatments will continue to rise in popularity, without the need for hospital stays, lengthy downtime or significant side-effects.
