Dermal fillers are a great way to replum skin and lips by smoothing out lines and deep wrinkles caused by aging. The two most common substances used by dentists and cosmetic professionals are Restylane and Juverderm- these both contain hyaluronic acid which is used to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Although both substances are similar, there are few differences between them. For example, the results from Restylane tend to show up after a few days whereas Juverderm will be instant. Another difference is that Restylane tends to only last for 10 months whereas Juverderm will last longer- possibly up to 12 months.
At Avondale Dental Practice, we are able to administer ‘Heart Lips’ which is a specific technique used for the creation of heart-shaped lips. By using precision placed fillers, the lips are naturally shaped, beautifully balanced and proportioned with your face. This particular technique can only be carried out by a medical professional that has been specifically trained by Dr Bob Khanna, and hold a valid licence.
We are pleased to announce that Avondale have been verified and hold this licence. If you’re considering having dermal fillers, it’s important to be aware of the risks and the possible side effects. These can include, but are not limited to:
• Redness, swelling or bruising
• Bleeding from the site of the injection
More serious side effects are rare, however if you experience anything that indicates you may have an infection then it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
