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 have been a patient for 21 years and have always seen Dr. Surrendra and I'm convinced that he is the best dentist. His treatments are always pain free and he explains everything in detail. I have recommended the practice to so many people at work and all of them have had a great experience.
Prior to when I started attending Battersea Preventive Dental Practice about eight years ago, I had for many years been to two leading London dental hospitals and, more recently, been treated by dentists at Regent's Park and in Harley Street. The standard of dentistry and treatment I have received at B.P.D.P. far exceeds anything in my previous experience.
I've found the reception staff friendly and helpful at all times, the phone service very quick and supportive (not always guaranteed at some places) and the dental care I'm receiving is patient, well-explained, consultative (I'm given the choices and given the chance to choice rather than just being imposed upon) and effective. I've made Battersea Preventive Dental Practice my dentist of choice.
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.
